Enjoy younger-looking, radiant skin in a week

  • A VI Peel offers dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime for all skin types, including darker and younger skin
  • An aesthetic doctor will conduct your initial consultation and perform your VI Peel
  • The VI Peel also works well in conjunction with lasers and injectable treatments, and so may be used as part of your wider treatment plan

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it makes a statement to the world about your health, your age and even your state of mind, so it’s only natural that you want it to look as beautiful as possible.

We have a great deal of experience when it comes to the best skin peels currently available and, here at Waterhouse Young, we’re especially passionate about the VI Peel, which is safe for all skin types and ethnicities, needs no skin pre-conditioning and is safe to use on the eye area, face, neck, chest and hands.

We’re impressed by the high level of comfort offered by this peel; it requires little to no downtime and you can have younger-looking, radiant skin in just one week.

The VI Peel uses a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients but it’s gentle enough to be used as a preventative peel for younger skin, as well as to improve the appearance of problems such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, sun damage, ageing, acne and acne scarring.

We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions and their answers (below and right) to help you find out more. To discuss your concerns about your skin, as well as your hopes for treatment, the first step is to book an initial consultation. You can fill out our quick and easy form or call us on 020 7486 3849 and we will be happy to help.

What is a VI Peel and how does it work?

A VI Peel combines various acids and vitamins to tackle skin problems at a cellular level instead of simply sloughing off your top layer of skin. This treatment delivers outstanding results in terms of erasing fine lines and wrinkles, shrinking enlarged pores and stimulating your skin to make more collagen and elastin. This is a particularly effective treatment for hyperpigmentation and acne.

The VI Peel is particularly convenient because you don’t need to carry out any pre-treatment skin conditioning and the treatment is virtually painless.

We are able to modulate the peel to produce a deeper, more aggressive peel, depending on your skin and the issues we are hoping to improve.

What happens during a treatment?

We will begin the treatment by cleansing your skin before applying the VI Peel topically to your skin. After the first layer, you may only just feel a very slight tingling. After a short while we will apply another layer, which you may feel a little more. The feeling soon subsides and another layer will be applied, at which point your skin will be numb.

It will take us between 20 to 30 minutes for the entire treatment but you will need to leave the peel on your skin for at least four hours after your appointment. We will give you products and clear aftercare instructions.

What can a VI Peel be used to treat?

The VI Peel can be used to improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin. We typically use VI Peels to reduce or remove hyperpigmentation (including melasma), acne and acne scars, and to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The peel stimulates the production of collagen, giving you firmer and more youthful looking skin after just one treatment.

As well as delivering amazing results as a facial peel, it can also be used to remove hyperpigmentation from the hands and chest, and to eliminate wrinkles on the décolletage.

VI Peel also works well in conjunction with lasers and injectable treatments, and so may be used as part of a wider treatment plan.

Will my treatment hurt?

VI Peels are virtually painless. You may experience a slight stinging sensation when the peel is first applied but it will then numb you skin, so that the feeling subsides almost immediately.

How long does a VI Peel take?

You should expect your VI Peel appointment (including time to cleanse your skin before the treatment begins) to take approximately 30 to 45 minutes.

How much does a VI Peel cost?

We will discuss your treatment options and proposed treatment plan during your initial consultation, including a full breakdown of the costs. Prices vary depending on the area(s) to be treated.
