Do you notice your skin aging? Does your skin have blemishes and uneven tone? Our practice offers the VI Peel, a special chemical peel that diminishes visible signs of aging and sun damage. You can expect long-lasting results with this peel.
WHAT IS VI PEEL?
The VI Peel is a gentle but powerful medical-grade chemical peel that treats the following: wrinkles, lines, blemishes, scars, sun damage, pigmentation spots, uneven skin tone, melasma, rosacea, large pores, and other skin imperfections. This peel is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Customers use it on the face, neck chest, arms, back, and legs. It’s also safe for the under-eye area. The treatment is painless and requires very minimum down time. What’s the secret? The formula itself. It is a blend (Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), Tretinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C, and other minerals) that safely works to remove the damaged layers of the skin and promotes the renewal of cells. It makes the skin surface smother, clearer, and firmer, and it gives people a more youthful and radiant appearance. The VI Peel stimulates the production of collagen, and it can be used in combination with other treatments.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A VI PEEL?
Anyone who is looking to improve mild to moderate skin damage (reduce blemishes, remove scars, freckles, spots and sun damage, acne) and reverse the signs of aging may be a great candidate for the procedure (especially customers of fair to medium skin color). Our practitioners will help determine if you are a good candidate. Originally, the Peel was created as treatment for acne patients (who may be as young as 12 years old). Anyone who enjoys good health and will follow post-treatment instructions will appreciate the procedure. If you are pregnant, take medication, or recently received another treatment, consult with our specialists regarding the timing for the procedure.
WHAT IS THE VI PEEL TREATMENT LIKE?
VI Peel is relatively painless; some sensitive types may experience some burning or tingling sensation that is typically tolerable without any pain medication. A cooling device may be recommended. During the peel, we cleanse the skin and then apply the solution with a special applicator. The solution dries quickly and customers can resume activities immediately. The solution may not be washed off for another five hours. The whole procedures typically does not take longer than 20 minutes.
WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE?
There is no down time after the procedure. Peeling effect lasts about two-three days and may be easily managed with the post-peel recovery kit that VIP MediSpa will provide you with. For the next one-two weeks, you should avoid any skin exfoliation, avoid sun exposure, and touching or pulling of your skin as it heals. The peel works the best if you let it peel naturally. Once the skin has finished peeling and is fully recovered, patients see visible improvements in their complexion. The skin appearance will continue to improve during the next four-six weeks. It will become firmer, clearer, smoother, and younger-looking.
HOW MUCH DOES VI PEEL TREATMENT COST?
Unfortunately, most major insurances do not cover the peel. Our spa offers financing options and a variety of payment methods (cash, check, and major credit cards). Schedule your free consultation by calling our office at (503)513-5533. Our providers will discuss your treatment plan and suggest affordable pricing for the procedure.
what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"
"Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"
"Dr. Max and staff are the best! I love the results of SmartLipo so far so good and I will be back for more!"
"Dr. Max, Sonja and the entire staff make my visits feel relaxed and welcoming. I am so happy with my results! Dr. Max is a perfectionist, which is exactly what I wanted. He is caring! Never condescending. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the procedure or Dr. Max to anyone."
"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
"VIP MediSpa has been wonderful. The Staff are pleasant and very helpful. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I’m very happy with the results from all my procedures and can’t wait to do more. Max is great and makes me feel comfortable about my decisions I have made. I recommend VIP to my friends and family."
"I joined the VIP MediSpa during the Grand opening and everyone was so nice! The location and décor are perfect! The service 6 months later is still first rate! I would definitely send my friends and family to them! Thank you so much!"
"I have had laser hair removal, microdermabrasions, laser treatment for hyperpigmentation and BOTOX® and have had wonderful results from each. The doctor and staff are professional yet have a fun sense of humor that makes my trips here fun and enjoyable. I will definitely keep coming back!"
"Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."

It was obvious to me that I had chosen the right place to have my ‘work’ done, as this is a very clean and beautifully designed facility. The staff members are very gracious and knowledgeable and the equipment is top of the line.

"I can now wear clothes I haven’t worn in a few years. I put on a pair of work slacks I hadn’t worn since before, and they fell down after I buttoned them! I also am loving that it gave me more incentive to take care of myself better, eat healthier, and exercise more. I am 43 going on 27."
