Exfoliating Peels
in Arizona

Want even-toned skin that looks like it is glowing from the inside out? Exfoliating peels, like the VI peel from DrSkin can revitalize you and leave you looking radiant. Our exfoliating peels are a unique mixture of ingredients that are safe for all kinds of skin.


What is an Exfoliating Peel?

DrSkin offers a medium grade peel that has been expertly blended to treat a variety of skin tones and types. The VI peel uses beneficial ingredients like phenol, vitamin C, TCA, retinoic acid, and salicylic acid to ultimately heal acne, reduce the appearance of scars, even out your skin tone, and leave your skin feeling as smooth as marble.

What Does an Exfoliating Peel Do?

Exfoliating peels do exactly as the name states—they peel away layers of dead skin to reveal the gorgeous you beneath. The outermost skin layer is often dull and damaged. By shedding those dead skin cells, the healthier cells underneath can shine.

At DrSkin, we use only the most gentle of peels. The ingredients interact with your skin and form little grains that can be scrubbed away. The buffing process helps remove the top layer of skin without causing any damage or pain.

Benefits of Exfoliating Peels

Who knew you could get such dramatic results so easily? Our exfoliating peels can do the following:

  • Improve the texture and laxity of your skin
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulate collagen production
  • Reduce or diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation, freckles, and age spots
  • Lasting results

What To Expect From an Exfoliating Peel

On the day of your appointment, the DrSkin team will get you checked in and go over any questions you may have about the process. Once we are ready to begin, you will be asked to lie face up. Your skilled technician will apply a layer of the exfoliating peel to your skin and will stay with you to make sure everything goes as planned as the peel dries.

During the application and drying process, you may feel some tingling or burning, due to the acids present in the formula. However, this should not be too painful. If you are worried about your sensitive skin reacting poorly, don’t worry. There are a variety of peels out there for you to try, and we can always offer alternatives.

To make your treatment go all the more smoothly, consider the tips below.

Pre-Treatment Tips

  • Wear SPF before your treatment to protect your skin from sun damage.
  • Avoid exfoliating the area to be treated.
  • Do not wax, use a depilatory cream, or undergo laser hair removal at least 1 week before your appointment.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Do not use facial masks, self-tanning products, Retin-A, or any prescription skincare 3 days before your treatment.

Post-Treatment Tips

  • Moisturize your skin and stay hydrated.
  • Do not pick or rub your skin.
  • Avoid any skincare products for at least 4 hours after your peel. Gentle cleansers are recommended for the first week.
  • After 6-7 days, you can resume your skincare regimen.
  • You will notice some sensitivity, so avoid glycolics, exfoliating products, and retinol for about 7-10 days.
  • Wear SPF all the time! Do not use self-tanners or tanning beds for at least 2 weeks post-treatment.
  • No sweat-inducing activities for 72-96 hours.

We will provide you with an aftercare kit to use. Be sure to follow the instructions so you get results you love!

Is There Any Downtime?

There is a reason we call it a peel! You will be shedding some excess skin after your treatment, and so you may not want to return to the office right away. It is recommended that you plan around this treatment. Give yourself at least an evening to recover, since you will need about 4 hours to let the treatment do its work before returning to your usual routine.

Around 24 hours after the treatment, you will start noticing signs of exfoliation. Peeling starts around the third day and ends by the seventh.

Who is a Good Candidate For an Exfoliating Peel?

Most people are able to get an exfoliating peel. Even individuals with melasma and keratosis pilaris can receive this treatment. The only clients who should reconsider are those with conditions like rosacea or highly sensitive skin. Don’t worry—we can always recommend alternative treatments for you!
