Chemical peels are nonsurgical treatments that carefully remove the surface layer of the skin through exfoliation. Jennifer applies a safe chemical solution to your skin to dry out the top layer (epidermis), which endures cosmetic and environmental damage each day. By removing this damaged layer, a chemical peel reveals the fresh skin underneath.
At Magnolia Dermatology, Dr. Robare and the team offer the VI Peel®, a popular medium-strength chemical peel that targets acne, acne scars, and many early signs of aging without downtime.
Our Aesthetician can tailor your chemical peel to target your specific skin concerns, our preferred peel is the VI Peel. After assessing your skin and discussing your concerns and cosmetic goals, Jennifer can recommend the right peel for you. The VI Peel is a unique blend of 5 acids designed to target multiple conditions. Body peels are also offered at Magnolia Dermatology.
How do the Vi Peel ingredients work?
Retinoic Acid: This powerhouse acid penetrates the skin inhibiting melanin production and increasing cell turnover.
Trichloroacetic Acid: TCA then targets signs of aging by boosting collagen and exfoliating the skin.
Salicylic Acid: Salicylic acid prevents inflammation by killing bacteria, suppresses sebum
production and cleansing the pores.
Phenol: This is the secret weapon that numbs the skin allowing for a painless application.
Ascorbic Acid: Finally, the ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant that reverses free radicals,
evens skin tone and helps prevent future damage.

What can I expect from chemical peels?
Chemical peels typically take 30-45 minutes. The peel must be washed off 4 hours post treatment. After your treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for at least 1-2 weeks after your procedure. Wear sun protection if you can’t avoid spending time outside. Within days of your peel, your skin may start to flake. Most patients see noticeably brighter, smoother skin within two weeks of their treatment.
