Rejuvenate your skin with chemical peels/VI peels from Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.
Like most of our clients, you’re probably juggling the competing demands of work and personal life. When you have so many things on your to-do list, it’s hard to find the time for even a simple facial skincare routine, let alone a body skincare routine.
At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer VI Peel Body — a unique chemical peel specifically formulated to remove dead skin and stimulate rapid cell turnover below your neck in just 30 minutes.
Unlike virtually all other peels in the VI series, VI Peel Body doesn’t target the face. This innovative treatment is the first and only professional-grade body peel suitable for all skin types and tones.
VI Peel Body exfoliates dead surface cells to reduce the appearance of imperfections and reveal healthy, glowing skin underneath. Many clients see the best results of this peel on their décolleté, the skin below the neckline. Confidently wear lower-cut necklines without worrying about the appearance of your skin!
The procedure is suitable for a wide range of skin concerns, including:
The skin on your body is up to three times thicker than the skin on your face. Conventional VI Peels can’t penetrate deep enough to produce significant results.
VI Peel Body employs a high-performance blend of acids and conditioning agents that work in synergy to go beyond the reach of traditional chemical peels, effectively alleviating or improving the appearance of multiple skin conditions.
Most VI Peel Body procedures take around 30 minutes, but the session could be slightly longer if you’re treating a larger surface area.
To start, the esthetician will thoroughly cleanse your skin to remove any impurities. They will then apply two layers of the chemical blend. After the first layer, you may experience mild numbness and tingling.
At this point, your skin will turn white. Don’t be alarmed — this is a standard part of the process. We call it “skin frosting,” and it is temporary.
Once you get home, rinse off the chemical solution four to six hours after the treatment using a gentle cleanser. Your skin will start peeling and shedding the dead layers in about three days, progressively revealing the healthy young skin underneath.
The peeling should stop in seven to ten days, and you’ll be able to enjoy your refreshed complexation for up to 14 days after that.
The best way to prevent unwanted side effects and get the most benefit out of your VI Peel Body treatment is to exercise proper aftercare.
VI Peel Body treatments are suitable for all ages and skin types but not for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
If you have dark skin, ask your physician or esthetician for tips on aftercare to prevent side effects, as you may be at a higher risk of developing skin discoloration.

Treatments that hyper-focus on specific skin concerns can be highly effective.
But sometimes, your skin craves a little of everything — from cleansing, exfoliating, and smoothing to brightening, toning, and hydration.
Here’s where VI Peel Original comes in. It is one of our most popular treatments at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, and with good reason. Thanks to the delicate balance of effective yet gentle ingredients, this peel gives your skin an overall boost without causing irritation.
At our practice, you can choose from six chemical peels known as VI Peels.
Most of these target specific skin problems, such as aging, hyperpigmentation, active acne, or scarring.
VI Peel Original is different. Unlike other peels from the VI series, this treatment is suitable for all age groups and skin types and can benefit a wide range of skin concerns. It gently refreshes, rejuvenates, and resets your skin with minimal to no irritation.
VI Peel Original is particularly well suited for treating:
VI Peels are medium-depth chemical peels that break through the top layer of your skin, also known as the epidermis, reaching into the middle layer or the dermis underneath. The specially formulated blends of potent active ingredients penetrate and exfoliate your skin, breaking down dead cells and stimulating the production of new skin layers.
This accelerated exfoliation smooths your skin’s texture and helps decrease the appearance of pigmentation issues and signs of aging. The result? Supple, glowing skin and a younger-looking complexion.
The procedure itself takes only 30 minutes. Your esthetician will remove any oil, dirt, and impurities from your skin and apply two layers of the chemical blend. The treated area will then “frost” or turn white, which is temporary.
You must wash off the peel with a mild cleanser four to six hours later. The dead skin usually starts to peel three days after the treatment. In most cases, the shedding lasts seven to ten days. When the peeling stops, it will reveal a refreshed, glowing complexion.
Proper aftercare is critical to avoiding potential complications and maximizing the effects of your treatment.
Be sure not to apply any creams or lotions before washing off the peel. After that, apply a post-peel protectant as instructed by your esthetician.
Stay away from harsh chemicals while your skin is peeling. Don’t get any facial procedures. Use a gentle moisturizer for sensitive skin, and wash your face with a mild cleanser.
Most importantly, stay out of the sun as much as possible. If you must go outside, wear SPF 50+ sunscreen and a hat.
Chemical peels are non-invasive treatments with minimal side effects.
Complications are even less likely with VI Peel Original: It’s a peel for all skin types that is well tolerated even by sensitive skin. Most people experience mild numbness and tingling when the esthetician applies the chemical peel, but no significant discomfort.
Other possible but rare side effects include:
Consult with your physician if you experience any of these symptoms.
VI Peel Original suits all age groups, skin types, and skin tones.
However, you may be at a higher risk of developing skin discoloration if you have a darker skin tone or use estrogen, so we recommend booking a consultation before getting the treatment to learn how to avoid unwanted side effects.
You shouldn’t get VI Peel Original or other chemical peels if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Call (561) 833-4122 or contact us online to learn more about VI Peel Original and find out whether it’s a good fit for you.
Fine under-eye wrinkles. Emerging crow’s feet and frown lines. Less firm and elastic skin. Rough texture and a dull, lackluster complexion. Sooner or later, we all experience these first signs of aging.
The good news is that chemical peels can help delay and even reverse these concerns.
Chemical peels are quick and non-invasive skin care treatments that use blends of potent chemicals to promote accelerated exfoliation.
By removing the outer layers of dead cells, chemical peels improve skin texture, boost the regeneration of new skin layers, and give you a glowing complexion with a more youthful appearance.
At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer six uniquely formulated chemical peel treatments known as VI Peels. Each peel targets a specific skin concern, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, or acne scarring.
Our best-selling VI Peel Advanced is a special peel for enhanced collagen stimulation that combats aging by:
VI Peel Advanced employs a special blend of powerful anti-aging ingredients that speed up the shedding of dead skin, increase cell turnover, and boost your skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes.
Our VI Peel Advanced treatment takes only 30 minutes. After gently cleansing your skin to remove any dirt and oil, your esthetician will apply two layers of the chemical solution. You may experience some numbness and slight tingling at first but no major discomfort.
Your skin will then “frost” or turn white. While not the most flattering look, this is completely normal and temporary.
When you get home, wash off the peel four to six hours after the procedure using lukewarm water and a mild cleanser. The dead skin layers will start peeling in about three days, gradually revealing the healthy, glowing skin underneath.
In seven to ten days, you will have a refreshed, glowing complexion. With proper aftercare, the benefits can last up to 14 days.
Proper aftercare is essential to get the most benefit out of the procedure and prevent potential side effects.
VI Peel Advanced is generally safe for all skin types and tones. This anti-aging treatment is best suited for people aged 40 and above.
However, if you have dark skin or take estrogen, you may be at a higher risk of developing skin discoloration, so be sure to consult with your esthetician to learn how to avoid complications.
Due to a lack of research, you should avoid the treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Are you dealing with acne-prone, oil skin? Have you tried all the face washes and cleansers you can get your hands on, with no results?
Many skincare products on the market say they’ll clear up your skin but don’t penetrate deep enough to address sebum production or clogged pores at the source. If this sounds familiar, we at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery have the solution: VI Peel Purify.
VI Peel Purify is a specific type of chemical peel containing a powerhouse blend of ingredients to rejuvenate your skin. It strips away dead skin cells and promotes rapid cell regeneration to open pores, kill p. acnes, and give your skin a smoother, more balanced appearance.
We provide several different types of VI peels, but the VI Peel Purify is best for acne hyperpigmentation, scarring, and excessive oil production. If you're dealing with the following skin conditions and concerns, VI Peel Purify could be the ideal treatment:

VI Peel Purify may cause redness, swelling, skin sensitivity, and other mild symptoms. However, you can take several steps to alleviate these adverse effects.
Overexposure to the sun's harmful rays can irritate your recently treated skin, so it's best to stay in the shade and wear sunscreen and a hat. Lotions, creams, and beauty products with harsh chemicals can also cause an adverse reaction, but we recommend cool compresses and post-peel protectants.

Are you concerned about your skin imperfections and signs of aging? At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, you can find the right solution to achieve the radiant, revitalized look you've always wanted. Our highly trained medical estheticians have helped many patients like you with chemical/VI peels in West Palm Beach, FL, and the surrounding area.
A chemical peel (sometimes called chemexfoliation) is a cosmetic procedure using chemical agents. Vitality Institute (VI) peels are specific types of chemical peels containing trichloroacetic acid, phenol, and salicylic acid to help treat unwanted skin conditions resulting from sun damage, age, and other factors.
VI peels are a popular treatment option for many Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery patients. However, every patient (and consequently, every procedure) differs from the next. Here are some reasons you may choose to get a chemical peel:
Our medical estheticians understand what it takes to maintain happy, healthy skin. Contact us to discover your options and see if a chemexfoliation treatment suits you!
Chemical peels/ VI peels can help manage various skin conditions and produce results you might not see with other treatment methods. Other procedures may require extensive pre-treatment skin care and lengthy recovery times. Our VI peels only take about 30 minutes and give you healthy, glowing skin in seven to 10 days.
Getting older has a lot of perks, but some adults feel self-conscious about their fine lines and wrinkles. With chemexfoliation, you can turn back the hands of time. VI peels can restore your skin's natural beauty and give you a more youthful appearance.
Chemexfoliation is also safe for almost all skin types and tones. Our staff will inform you about possible side effects and ensure the procedure goes as smoothly as possible. VI peels are painless and work well on all areas of the body.
During a chemical peel, our clinicians will apply the chemical compounds to your skin to strip away the outermost layer. This process removes skin cells and encourages your body to produce healthier new ones. You'll want to care for your skin properly after the procedure to achieve the best results.
We recommend applying a cool compress immediately following chemexfoliation. After the procedure, your skin will feel sensitive, so a cool compress can help soothe it. You should also avoid skincare and beauty products for a little while to minimize irritation.
Aftercare may vary from patient to patient. Our dermatologists will let you know what to do following chemical/VI peels to care for your skin and prevent adverse effects. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Some chemical peels work better than others for certain skin conditions and concerns. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a broad selection of VI peels to meet each patient's preferences and needs. These include:
Wrinkles, acne, discoloration, clogged pores, and other skin conditions can make your life more challenging. However, there is an effective, noninvasive solution. Chemical/VI peels can help you look your best and feel confident when the camera flashes.

The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.
However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.
While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.
Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.
