The Vitamin A Infusion Peel
Written by Amanda Beisel   

Restore, Remodel and Rejuvenate

woman's face with  hands surrounding it When we hear the word “peel,” we tend to immediately think “chemical peel,” but in the past few years, new approaches to peeling and rejuvenating the skin have emerged. One of the most effective and innovative of these is the vitamin A infusion peel. This non-acid peel is transforming the way people think about peels.


The vitamin A infusion peel is a non-acid retinaldehyde peel that is boosted with powerful antioxidants and nutrients that help repair and remodel the skin. Retinaldehyde is the most potent and least irritating form of vitamin A. The vitamin A infusion peel is customized to meet each client’s specific skin needs and concerns. The skincare practitioner creates a custom blend of antioxidants and nutrients that is mixed with the concentrated vitamin A prior to application.

The vitamin A peel is extremely safe and tolerated well by all skin types. This diverse peel is not just used for anti-aging, it is also an effective treatment option for acne, rosacea, melasma and hyper-pigmentation. The practitioner customizes the peel to meet the skin needs of each client.


The vitamin A infusion peel works much differently than a chemical peel. Rather than peeling from the outer layers, it works from the inside out building healthy new cells that increase cell turnover causing the skin to shed the top layer. This is made possible using a concentrated form of vitamin A that is liposome-coated to help it easily pass through the skin barrier. Once the vitamin A has penetrated deep within the skin, it stimulates the formation of new, healthy cells and the magic begins. Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect:

  • Stimulates collagen
  • Increased capillary flow to help increase food supply to the skin
  • Thickens the dermis preventing the skin from thinning
  • Calms and reduces acne
  • Calms mild rosacea
  • Lightens hyperpigmentation and melasma
  • Reduction in fine lines and improved skin tone and elasticity
  • Normalized oil production


One of the best features of the vitamin A peel is that it is relaxing and rejuvenating. The treatment experience is similar to a facial but the results are clinical. You can take the treatment a step further with the addition of cosmetic acupuncture. Plus, if you have extended benefits for acupuncture, a portion of this treatment can be covered.
