VI Peel Body in West Palm Beach, FL

Skin Care Doesn’t Stop With Your Face

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.

VI Peel Body: A Revolution in Chemical Peels

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:

  • Body acne
  • Surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Pigmentation
  • Keratosis pilaris (chicken skin)

What Are The Active Ingredients Of VI Peel Body?

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.

  • Glycolic acid: Instantly exfoliates dead surface cells to soften and brighten the skin.
  • Lactic acid: Simultaneously hydrates and firms the skin and lightens hyperpigmentation.
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA): Penetrates the skin to smooth out wrinkles, diminish the appearance of pigment, and fight acne.
  • Mandelic acid: Suppresses pigment and reduces excessive oil production.

What To Expect From Your Treatment

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.

VI Peel Body Aftercare Tips

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.

  • Allow your skin to recover: Don’t apply creams or lotions before rinsing off the chemical peel. Then, only apply a post-peel protectant and a gentle moisturizer for sensitive skin as directed by your esthetician.
  • Keep your skin clean: Wash your skin with water and a mild cleanser regularly and as instructed by your esthetician.
  • Stay out of the sun: If you must go outside, wear long sleeves or trousers to protect the treatment area.
  • Don’t get other treatments: Avoid getting other cosmetic procedures until your esthetician gives you the all-clear.

Is A VI Peel Body Right For You?

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.

VI Peel Original in West Palm Beach, FL

Does Your Skin Need a Pick-Me-Up?

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.

VI Peel Original: The Original, All-Round Chemical Peel

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:

  • Sensitive skin
  • Rough-textured skin
  • Keratosis pilaris (chicken skin)
  • Early signs of aging
  • Dull, lackluster skin
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation and sun spots

How Do VI Chemical Peels Work?

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.

Dos And Don’ts After A Chemical Peel

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.

Are There Any Side Effects To Chemical Peels?

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:

  • Dry skin
  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blistering
  • Inflammation
  • Burning pain
  • Discoloration
  • Allergic reaction
  • Infection
  • Scarring

Consult with your physician if you experience any of these symptoms.

Are You A Good Candidate For VI Peel Original?

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.

VI Peel Advanced in West Palm Beach, FL

Your Secret Weapon for a More Youthful Complexion

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.

Introducing: VI Peel Advanced

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:

  • Softening fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Improving skin firmness and elasticity
  • Supercharging the regeneration of new cells
  • Smoothing rough skin texture
  • Promoting a brighter, more vibrant skin tone

What Chemicals Does VI Peel Advanced Use?

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.

  • 10-12% trichloroacetic acid (TCA): TCA exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates new skin cell growth.
  • 10-12% phenol: Phenol gently numbs your skin and helps decrease the appearance of freckles and discoloration.
  • 10-12% salicylic acid: Salicylic acid breaks down dead skin, reducing the appearance of acne, acne scarring, age spots, melasma, keratosis pilaris (chicken skin), and other imperfections.
  • 4% vitamin C: Vitamin C brightens and hydrates your skin, boosts collagen production, protects against sun damage, and can minimize hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles.
  • 0.1-0.4% tretinoin: Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that effectively treats acne and sun damage and can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

What Does The Procedure Entail?

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.

Vi Peel Aftercare

Proper aftercare is essential to get the most benefit out of the procedure and prevent potential side effects.

  • Moisturize: Don’t apply creams or lotions until you wash off the chemical peel. After that, apply a gentle moisturizer and post-peel protectant as directed by your esthetician.
  • Cleanse: Wash the treated area with water and a mild cleanser for sensitive skin.
  • Avoid the sun: Stay out of the sun. If you must go outside, wear heavy-duty sunscreen, big sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Avoid facial treatments: Don’t get any procedures on the treated area until your esthetician gives you the green light.

Who Can Get Advanced Vi Peels?

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.

Chemical Peels in West Palm Beach

Are you concerned about the signs of aging and your skin imperfections? Growing older comes with many perks, but some adults understandably feel self-conscious about their fine lines and wrinkles. For others, acne, discoloration, clogged pores, and other skin conditions impact their self-esteem. Fortunately, chemical peels can help you turn back the hands of time, restore your skin's natural beauty, and give you a more youthful appearance. 

At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our highly trained medical estheticians have helped many patients with chemical peels. Sometimes called chemexfoliation, a chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure using chemical agents. At our office, we use Vitality Institute (VI) chemical peels containing trichloroacetic acid, phenol, and salicylic acid to treat unwanted skin conditions resulting from sun damage, age, and other factors.

Safe for almost all skin types and tones, chemical peels can help you look your best and feel confident when the camera flashes. These subtle, non-surgical procedures offer an unveiling by removing layers of damaged skin to reveal your deeper, healthier skin for a revitalized appearance and improved confidence.

What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

The beauty of a chemical peel lies in its simplicity. We apply a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layer to separate and peel off. Because the skin underneath is smoother in texture and more packed in color than this top layer, the result is a refreshed appearance. 

Chemical peels can help manage various skin conditions and produce results you might not see with other treatment methods that may require extensive pretreatment skin care and lengthy recovery times.

Chemical peels offer the following benefits:  

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Removal of acne scars 
  • Reduction of enlarged pores 
  • Treatment of mild acne symptoms 
  • Management of hyperpigmentation 
  • Requires only 30 minutes and gives you healthy, glowing skin in seven to 10 days

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure involving the application of a chemical solution to the skin. This chemical solution contains various types of acids such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). The use of salicylic acid chemical peels and other specific acids used and their concentration depend on the patient's desired depth of chemical peel and skin concerns.

A highly trained professional at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery carefully applies the chemical solution to the skin. It works by causing controlled damage to the outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, prompting the skin to regenerate and rejuvenate itself.

The depth of the peel determines the extent of exfoliation and the target area within the skin. There are three main types of chemical peels:

  1. Superficial Peel: This type of peel only affects the topmost layer of the skin, the epidermis. It helps to improve the texture, tone, and overall radiance of the skin. Superficial peels are often performed using mild acids such as glycolic acid or lactic acid. They require little to no downtime.
  2. Medium Peel: A medium-depth peel targets both the epidermis and the upper part of the dermis. It can address more significant concerns such as sun damage, fine lines, and pigmentation irregularities. Medium peels typically use TCA or a combination of TCA and other acids. The recovery period for a medium peel is longer, as the skin may appear red and require proper aftercare.
  3. Deep Peel: A deep peel penetrates deeper into the dermis. It is usually performed with a strong concentration of TCA or phenol. Deep peels can effectively treat severe sun damage, deep wrinkles, and certain types of scars. However, they require a lengthy recovery period, and the procedure is more invasive.

After applying the chemical solution, we leave it on the skin for a specific duration, depending on the type of peel. During this time, the solution breaks down the bonds between dead skin cells to promote shedding and stimulate the production of new skin cells.

Am I a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

With even the most non-invasive procedure, questions are natural. While a chemical peel might not be suitable for everyone, patients who elect to have the procedures typically include those:

  • Looking to address wrinkles and deep creases 
  • Bothered by premature aging lines
  • Wanting to correct uneven skin pigmentation 
  • Looking for a solution to oily or acne-prone skin 
  • Hoping to address large pores or soften the appearance of facial scars

What Can I Expect After a Chemical Peel?

After a chemical peel, your skin will go through a healing process as it recovers from the treatment. During this time, the old, damaged skin will gradually peel away, revealing smoother, brighter, healthier-looking skin underneath for a more youthful appearance. Specific expectations may vary depending on the depth of the peel and individual factors, but here are some general guidelines:

  • Redness and Sensitivity: Immediately following the peel, you may experience redness and sensitivity in the treated area. This is a normal response that typically subsides within a few hours to a few days, depending on the depth of the peel.
  • Peeling and Flaking: Within a few days after superficial peels or medium peels, you can expect the outermost layer of your skin to start peeling and flaking. This is a natural part of the exfoliation process and may last for about a week or longer, depending on the depth of the peel. It's important not to pick or pull at the peeling skin to avoid potential complications and to allow the skin to heal properly.
  • Dryness and Tightness: Following a chemical peel, your skin may feel dry and tight, due to the removal of the topmost layer of skin and the temporary disruption of the skin's barrier function. Keeping your skin moisturized with gentle, recommended products to prevent excessive dryness and promote healing is vital.
  • Sun Sensitivity: After a chemical peel, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. It is crucial to protect your skin from direct sun exposure, as UV radiation can intensify the side effects of the peel and increase the risk of complications. Wear sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, seek shade, and use protective clothing when outdoors.
  • Results: As your skin heals and the peeling subsides, you will start to notice improvements in your skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance. The results of a chemical peel can include smoother skin, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, improved pigmentation irregularities, and a more youthful complexion. However, the full results may take several weeks to become apparent as the skin continues to regenerate and renew itself.
  • Follow-up Care: We will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions tailored to your individual needs, which may include avoiding certain skincare products or treatments for a period of time and scheduling follow-up appointments as needed. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and maximize the benefits of the chemical peel.

Is a Chemical Peel Good for Your Skin?

Chemical peels are good for your skin for various reasons, including:

  • Exfoliation: Chemical peels work by exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin. This process helps to remove dead skin cells, impurities, and debris that can accumulate on the surface over time. By effectively exfoliating the skin, chemical peels promote cellular turnover and reveal fresher, healthier-looking skin underneath.
  • Skin Rejuvenation: Chemical peels stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. These proteins contribute to skin firmness, elasticity, and overall youthfulness. By encouraging collagen and elastin synthesis, chemical peels can help improve skin tone and texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Acne Treatment: Chemical peels can be an effective treatment for acne and acne scars. They help to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and regulate oil production. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells and promoting skin renewal, chemical peels can improve the appearance of acne-prone skin and minimize the occurrence of breakouts.
  • Hyperpigmentation Reduction: Chemical peels can address hyperpigmentation issues such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma. The exfoliation process helps to fade pigmented areas by eliminating damaged skin cells and promoting the growth of new, evenly pigmented skin.
  • Skin Texture Improvement: Chemical peels can help smooth out uneven skin texture, including roughness, bumps, and superficial scars. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin, chemical peels encourage the growth of smoother, more refined skin.

The benefits of a chemical peel can vary depending on the depth of the peel, the specific concerns being addressed, and individual factors. Consulting with a Board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist is essential to determine the most suitable type and depth of chemical peel for your unique skin needs.

Before undergoing a chemical peel, schedule an appointment with our patient counselor to discuss your goals, expectations, and any potential risks or side effects. During that time, we will assess your skin condition, recommend the appropriate treatment plan, and provide you with detailed pre-treatment and post-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results and the overall health and well-being of your skin.

How Long Does a Chemical Peel Last?

Chemical peel results can vary in duration depending on the type and depth of the peel performed. Here is some information to provide an overview of how long a chemical peel may last:

  1. Light or Superficial Peel: A light or superficial chemical peel typically produces results that last for about 1 to 2 months initially when you start using the treatment. Over time, with regular maintenance and repeated peels, the results can be maintained and improved.
  2. Medium Peel: A medium-depth chemical peel can provide longer-lasting results compared to a light peel. The effects of a medium-depth peel can last for approximately 6 months or more. However, it is important to note that individual variations and factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and skincare routine can influence the longevity of the results.
  3. Deep Peel: Deep chemical peels, which penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, can offer more dramatic and long-lasting results. The effects of a deep peel can last for several years, and in some cases, they may not require follow-up treatments. However, deep peels are more invasive and require a longer recovery period.

The duration of chemical peel results vary from person to person, depending on various factors, including the individual's skin condition, lifestyle, and ongoing skincare regimen. Maintaining good skincare practices, protecting the skin from sun damage, and following post-peel instructions we provide can help prolong the results.

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost?

The cost of a chemical peel from a hinges on several factors such as the type of peel. A deep chemical peel may cost more than a medium chemical peel or a light chemical peel. Each patient's unique needs and goals will dictate whether a light chemical peel, a medium peel, or a deep chemical peel is required to give them their desired results. For your convenience, we accept CareCredit, cash, checks, and credit cards, and offer other financing options, so you can improve your skin appearance and enjoy renewed confidence.

Results and Recovery: What Should You Do After a
Chemical Peel Procedure?

During a chemical peel, our estheticians 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 a chemical peel to soothe the sensitivity your skin will feel. You should also avoid skincare and beauty products for a little while to minimize irritation and expect several days of heavy peeling, beginning two days after the process. Use sun protection and stay away from direct sunlight or anything that can irritate your sensitive skin.

Our Faqs


If I am seeking to undergo a combination of procedures, will they be done together or consecutively? What is the timeline for multiple procedures?


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.


Will it be obvious that I “got work done” after my procedure?


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.

What does Breast Explant Surgery entail, and will my breasts be “back to normal” after the surgery?


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.
