by Surgical Times

The award-winning, minority- and woman-led skincare brand, Vitality Institute, announced the launch of its first-ever VI Peel Body Treatment, Tuesday, January 25. VI Peel Body is now available at select practitioners’ offices across the US.

Developed by the creators of the first painless chemical peel for the face, this breakthrough new body. treatment has been carefully formulated to target a variety of skin concerns on any part of the body.

Acknowledging that the skin on the body is two to three times thicker than the skin on the face, VI Peel Body uses a unique proprietary ingredient complex with potent actives that go beyond the reach of traditional topicals alone. By stimulating anti-aging collagen and increasing cellular turnover, VI Peel Body helps address troubled areas to reveal smoother, more radiant skin after a single treatment.

Formulated exclusively for the skin on the body, the new VI Peel Body Treatments lift pigment and sun damage, fight active acne and acne scarring, and soften wrinkles, stretch marks, and more.

VI Peel Body is safe and effective for all skin types, tones and textures. Using four key ingredients, the treatment helps remove pigmentation and fine lines on the décolletage, targets body acne to reduce scarring and repeat flare ups, smooths scars from surgeries or injuries, softens the appearance of stretch marks and tightens sagging skin.

The VI Peel Body Treatment contains a powerful catalog of ingredients.

  • Glycolic Acid exfoliates dead surface cells instantly.
  • Lactic Acid hydrates and lightens pigment as it firms.
  • Trichloroacetic Acid penetrates the skin to target texture, pigment, acne and wrinkles.
  • Mandelic Acid suppresses pigment and reduces oil production.

“It is moving that 10 years after the passing of my father Dr. Khalil, we are still revolutionizing chemical peels.  He was a trailblazer in the aesthetic industry who transformed chemical peel treatments, and here we are today, continuing his mission as we debut the first-ever peel for the body,” says VI Peel CEO Marya Khalil.

The treatment was released to Vitality Institute clinics in December and is now available at more than 750 select dermatologists and med-spas across the country.

In 2005, Vitality Institute pioneered the first painless and skin tone inclusive chemical peel, developed by Dr. Khalil. Now under his daughter’s leadership, the company has grown to offer six medical-grade VI Peel formulations customized to each patient’s unique skin conditions and concerns, and it provides an at-home skincare line, VI Derm Beauty.

More than 10 million VI Peel peels have been performed worldwide and it has been recognized by consumer groups and industry leaders as the country’s #1 chemical peel. Custom VI Peel blends target each patient’s needs, helping to treat common skin concerns such as aging skin, active acne, acne scarring, melasma, sun damage, and keratosis pilaris.
