How is The VI Peel different from peels such as Glycolic?
The VI Peel founds itself on a key anti-aging ingredients, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. As we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the aging process itself.
The VI Peel blends, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, Glycolic and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. , resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. Alone the ingredients are powerful, but in combination they produce results that are astonishing.
