VI PEEL will also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to make skin firmer and younger looking.


Introducing VI’s latest age-defying breakthrough for radiant skin. The Precision Peel is made from the same synergistic blend of ingredients as the VI Peel, but at a higher concentration, for a peel that is about 25% stronger than a VI Peel. Precision is an excellent addition for treating stubborn hyperpigmentation including melasma, actinic keratosis and age spots on hands, arms or the chest. The Precision Plus Peel is to be used in conjunction with the VI Peel.

Benzoyl peroxide removes bacteria, clears the pores and increases cell turnover. Salicylic acid causes the cells of the epidermis to shed, opening clogged pores and neutralizing the bacteria within while constricting the pore diameter to prevent further clogging. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that removes toxins from the environment. Kojic acid brightens skin and reduces acne scars.
