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.

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.
