So you've booked an appointment for a VI Peel with Refined Lines and want to know what to expect. We've got you covered! The peel application takes less than 20 minutes. It is easy, quick, and painless. The most challenging part of the peel process is ensuring you are following all of the post-peel instructions and downtime care. We will break it down for you in this blog post!

The Peel Application
We request that you come to your appointment makeup-free. If you wear makeup, we will send you to the restroom to cleanse your skin with Revision Skincare Cleanser. Before we begin we will use prep pads to ensure we've removed all excess makeup and oils from your skin. This will help the peel to penetrate deeper. Then we will start the peel process. We make 4-5 full passes around your face with the peel solution. We will use firm pressure during the application to help the peel penetrate into your skin. Between each pass we allow the peel to dry and make sure there are no areas that are reacting or showing us signs we need to discontinue further application. The peel will feel cool and slightly tingly. We hand our clients a handheld fan to use -- it helps distract and the cool air feels comforting during the peel application. When finished, your skin will have a light brownish tint. You can wash your face for the first time 4 hours after the peel is applied and the tint will go away at that time. The peel is perfect to pair with neurotoxin, and we can easily do both services in one appointment! To combine the two services when booking on our website select new or returning client for a toxin appointment and then just above the calendar there is a box that says "Add to your appointment...VI Peel". Happy Booking!
