The VI Peel consists of a synergistic blend of five acids that no other peel offers:
TCA – Trichloroacetic Acid for penetration, deep scar healing;
stimulates collagen growth;
Retin-A – acid derived from vitamin A to combat wrinkles;
Salicylic Acid – this beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is an exfoliant;
Phenol – has antiseptic and anesthetic properties;
aids in skin penetration;
Vitamin C – ascorbic acid has antioxidant and mild exfoliation properties

Those with allergies to any of the ingredients above and women who are pregnant or nursing should not undergo a VI Peel.

Pre-Peel Skin Care
For one week prior to receiving the VI Peel, the best results are achieved by having a consultation with a skin care professional to discuss the peel pre- and post-peel home care to acheive the best results from the VI Peel and to maintain those benefits.

Post-Peel Skin Care
The VI Peel has just given you the equivalent of multiple peels. So, for a week or two following the peel it’s best to avoid exfoliating products like glycolic acid and retinols. Avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the sun, and we recommend you use a sunscreen at all times.
Resist the temptation of pulling your peeling skin off – it’s important that you let it peel naturally. Manage your appearance instead with the included post-peel kit and an oil-free moisturizer. Do not use topical Hydrocortisone Creams, such as our Aloe-Cort cream, as they will stop the peeling process.

You deserve to be beautiful!

I think most of us would prefer a faster metabolism?  When we exercise, our bodies require more energy and our metabolism increases in order to supply it.  Remember a slower metabolism means more of those calories you take in are going to be sitting around waiting to become extra pounds. *Various studies have shown that certain “foods” can assist in a metabolism boost.

Some foods that have shown to be a boost for the metabolism:

Coffee – A quick boost, consider adding a little extra caffeine to your diet. A cup will give it a quick kick into high gear that can be helpful during the day.

Green Tea -Most will say this is a healthier alternative to coffee. Chemicals known as catechins found in green tea are believed to stimulate your metabolism.

Citrus Fruits – Researchers say that foods rich in Vitamin C, such as oranges, tangerines and grapefruit contain natural metabolism boosting properties that also make your immune system stronger.

Hot Peppers– Capsaicin is the ingredient in peppers that gives them their heat. Research shows that this compound actually stimulates your body’s production of adrenaline which kicks your metabolism into high gear temporarily. Throwing some jalapenos at your sandwich or some hot peppers in your scrambled eggs could help you burn more calories.

Dark Green Vegetables – High in fiber with high levels of vitamins and nutrients our bodies need to be healthy. Spinach, mustard greens and collard greens are good examples

Spices – Cumin, Ginger and cinnamon are all good examples. Adding a decent amount of these spices into your meals can give them more flavor and can help increase your metabolism.

Lean Protein – Protein is harder for the body to digest than carbohydrates, and because it requires more energy the result is more calories. By including lean protein in your meal, you’ll be giving your metabolism a boost when you eat. Try to  include chicken or turkey breasts and fish.

Whole Grains –  Fiber isn’t as easy for the body to digest. It takes more energy resulting in fewer calories available to be converted into fat cells.

So I guess the idea is to stay active and make wise food choices! ? Oh yes of course…

Water– Drink your water! It helps the body flush out excess sodium and toxins. A German study showed that drinking water helped boost the metabolism by 30 percent. Drinking enough water to stay well hydrated also helps to keep you from mistaking thirst for hunger, and can prevent unnecessary calorie consumption and binging.
