Regain That Youthful Glow!
Our skin changes as we age, and damaging agents such as sunlight, smoking and pollution all leave their mark.
The Real You Clinic recommends VI Peel™ as this product contains naturally occurring compounds that have been skilfully combined and presented in order to pass through the skin barrier to reach the dermis below.
What is VI Peel?
Powerful concentrates of Vitamin C, Phytic and Glycolic Acids are combined with soothing and nourishing Chamomile, Vitamins E and A, Shea Butter, Orchid Oils and Bisabolol to create a range of highly effective anti-ageing creams and lotions to suit all skin types, ages and racial groups.
Chemical Skin Peels
There are two types of chemical skin peels. Glycolic acid, which is a gentle epidermal peel which removes dead skin cells and surface debris and stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, and is suitable for all skin types. TCA which is a stronger peel, penetrates deeper into the epidermal layers, giving a longer lasting result.
The VI Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. Why wait weeks or months for results? Enjoy radiant, younger looking skin in about a week with the VI Peel. Vitality Institute Medical Products. Beautiful skin for a lifetime.

VI Peel delivers results in 7 Days!
Your skin will be cleansed with acetone to remove all oils. A first layer will be applied which slightly numbs the skin. You may feel brief stinging for 5 to 10 seconds. Subsequent layers are applied until your skin “frosts”. The peel is left on and will self-neutralize over the next 6 hours. Your skin will feel and look tighter with a glow.
Skin will darken to look tanned, then the peeling will begin on Day 3 with peel completion by Day 7. Your new skin will be much smoother, clearer and more tone-balanced.
Your Post VI Peel Instructions
Day 1. You will leave the office with the VI Peel solution on your skin and will be given a post peel kit. Nothing is to be applied to the area treated on day one (no SPF, makeup or moisturiser of any kind). The peel must be the only thing on your skin in order to allow time for proper penetration. Make sure you leave the VI Peel solution on for at least 6 hours. You must stay out of the sun.
Night of Day 1. Wash the peel off one hour before bedtime that evening and apply the (Retine A/Vitamin C towelette) into the skin and sleep with it in the skin that first night.
Day 2. The following morning you should wash & dry your face, apply hydrocortisone 1%, and then apply the provided SPF 30. You will reapply the hydrocortisone and SPF at least three times throughout the day.
Night of Day 2. That second night one hour before bedtime wash and dry your face and apply the second Retine A/Vitamin C towelette into the skin and sleep with it all night.
Day 3. The following morning (day 3) is, generally, the day you will begin to peel. You will continue the same step as morning two (wash and dry the face, apply the hydrocortisone and SPF 30). You must re-apply these three times daily. Upon the start of peeling, you can incorporate the moisturiser (provided) with the hydrocortisone and SPF regimen (hydrocortisone, moisturiser, and SPF). (NOTE: Moisturizer should be used once the peeling process has begun).
