Benefits of a VI Peel in San Francisco

Clearer, Glowing Skin

Your skin will be reset by the chemical peel, and you will be able to see your skin has smoothed out and looking refreshed.

Smoother Skin

Our VI Peel in San Francisco has ingredients that help produce elastin and collagen, which will smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

Goodbye Bumps!

Some of the ingredients in the chemical peel will break down any bumps on your skin caused by keratosis pilaris.

Improved Acne

Since chemical pees reduce oil production and help kill bacteria in the skin, VI Peels can help reduce acne and acne scarring.

The VI Peel Process

Step 1: Consultation

During your complimentary consultation, we’ll look over your skin and determine if an IV Peel is the right treatment for your skin concerns.

Step 2: Treatment

We clean the skin, and the follow with a chemical solution. You may feel some tingling, but it should otherwise be painless and comfortable.

Step 3: Next Steps

You leave with the chemical solution on your face, and wash off the residue after about 4 hours. You can expert your skin t start peeling after 2 to 3 days, and it will continue to peel up to 6 days after treatment.

"I am hooked. My skin was glowing, so smooth and continues to glow post-treatment."

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. …

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I’ve been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I’ve been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. …

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. She is very knowledgeable about products and treatments. I had a bunch of skincare questions and Monica was really informative. I know there are other advanced procedures at Elinea such as Botox, injectables, etc but for me and for now, I am happy taking small steps in my journey to great skin. Elinea is a warm and beautiful new space in the Castro. I am booking my next skincare treatment now!

I've been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. The next day, I looked seriously five years younger. My skin was taut, supple and super hydrated...many fine lines were minimized. I'm definitely going to get this treatment again. Monica knows her stuff.
