What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are the fourth most performed noninvasive skincare treatment in the United States. At Defy Nature in New London, we specialize in Vi Aesthetics chemical peels. Vi Aesthetic peels are different from other chemical peels. This line of peels requires no skin preconditioning, is almost painless, and has a minimal downtime after the procedure. Vi Aesthetic peels are also made with vitamins and minerals which nourish the skin long after the procedure is over. Many patients report seeing results in as little as one week, but 2 to 3 treatments are recommended to get the full effects of a chemical peel.
Chemical peels can be performed on the face, hands or neck. A chemical solution, usually a mix of naturally exfoliating acids like BHA and AHA, is applied by a certified technician from Defy Nature. Once the chemical solution has fully affected the skin, the old skin at the treatment area begins to peel off and new, glowing skin appears.
What are chemical peels used to treat?
Chemical peels can be used to treat a number of common skin problems, such as:
- Uneven skin tone

How long do results last?
Depending on the patient, their skin type, and previous medical history. Many patients who receive a chemical peel report seeing results for months or even years after their initial treatment.
