Frequently Asked Questions
The increasingly popular VI Peel® is a skin-resurfacing chemical peel that stimulates collagen and increases cellular turnover to reveal smoother and more radiant skin. In just 15 years, over 10 million peels have been performed worldwide and VI Peel has been recognized by both consumer groups and industry leaders as the #1 peel.
Single-Acid peels inherently treat a limited number of conditions. For example, a straight TCA peel is amazing at combating the signs of aging. Unfortunately, obtaining impactful results requires a high percentage of TCA. Not only is it painful, but treatment will also be limited to Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-III.
Blended peels have the ability to not only address a patient’s primary concern but will also simultaneously address any secondary skin conditions he or she may have as well. At Success by Design, the VI Peel is a unique blend of 5 acids designed to target multiple conditions.
- Retinoic Acid: This powerhouse acid penetrates the skin, inhibiting melanin production and increasing cell turnover.
- Trichloroacetic Acid: TCA drives the blend deeper and targets signs of aging by boosting collagen and exfoliating the skin.
- Salicylic Acid: Salicylic acid prevents inflammation by killing bacteria, suppresses sebum production, and cleanses the pore lining.
- Phenol This is the secret weapon that numbs the skin, allowing for a painless application.
- Ascorbic Acid: A powerful antioxidant that reverses free radicals, evens skin tone, and helps prevent future damage.
- Hydroquinone is a skin lightening agent, that promotes providing potent melanogenesis inhibition.
- Kojic Acid: Found naturally, this acid aids in fighting discoloration and brightens the complexion. It is an effective melanogenesis inhibitor because of its ability to separate copper bound to tyrosinase and decrease the number of melanosomes and dendrites that can transfer the melanosomes.
- Hydrocortisone is an anti-inflammatory that soothes and reduces redness, and inflammation.
Though this type of therapy has been around for a while, there has been a great spike of interest and desire to undergo this procedure recently. Though the scientific name sounds daunting, the gist of it is that growing cells, as well as stem cells, secrete small vesicles called exosomes. The reason why they are so amazing is that they influence the cells that are around or come in contact with. You can compare these stem cells to directors of complex symphonies guiding all the different cells in the area to act in a coordinated manner. This procedure repairs and prevents the continued look of aging. Plus, the main ingredients for you, come from you making it the most personalized type of procedure as well as the type of therapy at the forefront of regenerative aesthetic medicine. If any of these cosmetic injections interest or sound right for you, please contact our highly trained cosmetic professionals and set up a FREE consultation when it works best for you.

Unlike other chemical peels, our treatments are virtually painless, require no skin preconditioning, and have minimal downtime. VI peels have vitamins and minerals which nurture the skin at the same time as it is going through the exfoliation process. These peels are practical, affordable, and give excellent results to patients in as little as one (1) week.
VI Peels are suitable for a variety of skin types and concerns. The VI Peel also comes with a take-home kit that includes Post Peel Towelettes, Post Peel Protectant, and VI Derm SPF 50+ to help with healing during the exfoliation process. According to ASAPS data, chemical peels are the 4th most performed noninvasive procedure in the US with over 1 million done each year.
If a series is recommended, the VI Peel is suitable to receive every 4-6 weeks as directed by your Practitioner. Your Practitioner will be able to create your own unique skincare plan for your skincare needs. You can also have the VI Peels quarterly/seasonally and receive four (4) peels a year for the maintenance of healthy skin.
For the week leading up to your treatment, you’ll be asked to stop using prescription retinoids as well as any products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids, like glycolic acid; beta hydroxy acids, like salicylic acid; or benzoyl peroxide.
You’ll also need to avoid waxing, electrolysis, depilatory creams, and laser hair removal for a week before the procedure. These ingredients and treatments can temporarily weaken the integrity of the skin’s protective barrier and make skin more prone to burning and irritation.
According to the Vitality Institute, VI Peels are suitable for all skin types and skin colors. However, if you have dark skin it’s still a good idea to get a consultation before your procedure to learn how best to avoid complications. People with dark skin have the highest risk of developing skin discoloration after a chemical peel.
The peel is intended to help address discoloration, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and pigmentation. The peel may make the skin tone appear lighter, but it is actually returning the skin to its natural tone by removing the damage.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak with a doctor before getting a VI peel. Due to a lack of research, chemical peels that contain TCA or salicylic acid are not recommended while pregnant. Pregnancy, estrogen use, and excessive sun exposure after your procedure are risk factors for developing dark spots after a chemical peel.
VI Peels are generally well tolerated. However, some people may experience side effects, such as:
- Burning pain
- Skin discoloration
- Allergic reaction
- Dry skin
At Success by Design, we specifically use Rejuvapen for our Microneedling procedures. Rejuvapen is a micro-needling system that creates micro-perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. As a result, your skin will shift its natural repair mechanism into high gear and cause it to start producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. This is why it is also referred to as collagen induction therapy.
As a result of the treatment, you will see that your skin becomes firmer and regains its original elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles will be visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated, and the overall condition of the skin improves greatly. Rejuvapen can also be used to enhance the absorption of bio-active ingredients such as growth factors that are applied to the skin during treatment, maximizing results.

This treatment is safe, and minimally invasive, and it is an outpatient procedure. That means that there is almost no downtime so you can get back to your regular life right away. With that being said, there are some things to know that will help you prepare and achieve the best results possible.
Here are some pro-tips you can prepare by following:
- Stop Accutane treatment 6 months prior
- Avoid retinoids and skin-drying products for approximately one week before
- Avoid anti-inflammatory medication 3 days prior
- Avoid laser treatments or sunburns for at least two weeks prior
- Avoid waxing, depilatories, or electrolysis for at least 5 days prior
- Do not shave on the day of treatment
If followed correctly, these steps will allow the least amount of irritation to the skin and help decrease the recovery time significantly.
After a collagen induction therapy treatment, there are certain steps to take to help the skin heal faster. Some things to pay attention to post-treatment are:
- Avoid sweating, strenuous exercise, and steam for at least 24 hours
- After a minimum of 4 hours, wash the face with a gentle, non-abrasive cleaner and pat dry
- Sleep on your back and elevate your head to lessen swelling
- Avoid tanning and excessive sun exposure for at least 2 weeks
- Use sunscreen SPF 30 or higher to protect the skin
There may be swelling and slight bruising after the treatment, which will go away soon. After the first few days, you will experience some flaking, so make sure to keep your skin extra moisturized with a quality serum, preferably one containing Hyaluronic acid. Another treatment session can be scheduled in 4 to 6 weeks’ time, to allow full recovery of the skin.
Though it’s useful to most, there are some people who are not eligible for this treatment. You may not have this treatment if you:
- Are pregnant
- Have a sunburn or inflamed skin
- Have a cold sore or skin infection
- Have keloid scars
- Have allergies to the products used, like lidocaine
- Have cystic acne
When it’s time for treatment, the provider needs to be informed of all medications you are taking, and any changes in your medical history. This will ensure your safety and encourage the best results possible.
What is Sculptra?
The only collagen stimulator that naturally restores collagen and lasts for more than 2 years!
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
How does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called Poly-L-Lactic Acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by our trained specialist. Sculptra® can take an average of 3 treatments performed every 4-6 weeks to achieve results. The number of treatments depends on how much correction you will require. It is custom-tailored to your specific needs.
What areas can Sculptra® injections be used?
Sculptra® is effective for treating moderate to deeper lines. It is used for these typical lines and creases that develop around the mouth:
- Marionette lines (extending downward from the corners of your mouth)
- Parentheses lines (framing both sides of your mouth)
- Nasolabial folds (running from your nose down to the corners of your mouth, also called smile lines)
- Chin wrinkles
Sculptra® is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, and re-volumize the cheeks and temples. It is not used to plump the lips. You may not receive the injections if you are immunocompromised, if you are allergic to the product, or if you are pregnant or nursing.
Collagen Is Key. BY AGE 45, YOU FACE UP TO 25% COLLAGEN LOSS. Sculptra can help stimulate natural collagen growth to help restore facial volume and fullness over time.
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
Sculptra may stimulate collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time. If you want to appear more youthful-looking — without appearing like you’ve had work done — then chances are Sculptra may be a good choice for you.
