PHYSIQ is a new body treatment that uses four applicators to target stubborn areas where exercise and diet may not be enough. Treatments are fast and comfortable, and results are optimized without any downtime.

How does PHYSIQ work?

PHYSIQ targets tissues and muscle with its unique STEP technology. STEP programs are customized sequences of timed phases of deep heat and muscle stimulation. The deep heat phase from PHYSIQ’s super luminescent diode matrix (SDM) targets tissue while electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) creates muscle contractions to re-educate the muscle in the targeted area.


Common Questions

What should I except before, during and after my treatment?

BEFORE your PHYSIQ treatment, if necessary, you will want to shave the targeted area.  It’s a good idea to increase your water intake prior.

PHYSIQ has four independent applicators that can deliver both heat and EMS. Your provider will place up to four applicators spaced along the desired area and secure them with a PHYSIQ band.

DURING your treatment you may feel warmth at the applicator site and you will feel muscle contractions during the EMS phases. Should you feel discomfort, you may use the patient control button which adjusts the energy modulation without impacting the effectiveness of the treatment.

AFTER your treatment, it is important to massage the area with the PHYSIQ body lotion that was designed to complement your body treatment.  One bottle of the PHYSIQ body lotion will allow you to continue this massage, twice daily, between treatments. The area(s) may feel warm for a few hours post treatment. Strenuous exercise and activities that raise your body temperature should be avoided for at least 48 hours.

How long is a single treatment?

The length of treatment will depend on the area being treated but on average, treatments are thirty minutes.

Can I treat more than one area in a single session?

PHYSIQ has four applicators which may be used in sets of two on multiple areas in one single session. A maximum of three areas may be treated in one day.

How many treatments will I need?

The recommendation is 5 sessions with each session spaced one week apart. EMS may be used alone to maintain results after full STEP sessions. However, everyone is different so it is important for you to talk to your provider about those areas you’d like to target and your goals.

What makes PHYSIQ a virtually pain-free treatment?

First, the deep penetration of heat combined with sapphire cooling at the skin’s surface leads to only a minimal increase in the temperature of the skin. This allows the patient to be comfortable without sacrificing efficacy. Next, the cycling between heat and EMS with STEP ensures the optimal temperature is reached and maintained throughout the treatment Lastly, patients have a control button to make any adjustments for comfort without impacting the efficacy of the session.

VI Peel: What is it and how does it work?


What is it? How does it work? Is it for everyone?

We went to the experts on chemical peels at the VI Institute…
And got all of our questions answered.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is the application of a solution, such as alpha hydroxy acid, beta hydroxy acid or trichloroacetic acid. They range in intensity from low-grade (or light) with minimal downtime to aggressive (or deep). The lighter the chemical peel, the more frequently they can be performed. The more aggressive, the more side effects and length of recovery time one can expect, though the reward may be greater.


How do chemical peels work?

A chemical peel stimulates exfoliation to remove the outermost layers of skin. Our skin exfoliates naturally (in fact, you’re shedding a ton of old skin cells as you read this), but as we age, that exfoliation process (aka, cell turnover) slows and old cells are slower to fall away. Exfoliation instigates your body’s cell turnover process to encourage new cells to the surface, and those cells are fresher, plumper, and help give skin a noticeable smoothness. 



What skin type are chemical peels best for?

A chemical peel is best suited for helping skin shed stubborn discoloration, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and post-acne scarring, as well as stimulating new collagen production. Chemical peels can help with the look of wrinkles, as they lift away dead skin cells that can make a wrinkle look more intense. Though a chemical peel may not completely resolve sagging skin issues, it can help tighten the look of skin due to new collagen production.


What are some potential chemical peel side effects?

Chemical peel side effects can include anything from flushing during treatment to sustained redness after the treatment, swelling, crusting, and peeling. (NEVER pick scabs or skin that begins peeling, as this could cause intense pain and permanent skin damage.) A chemical peel for darker skin tones may experience darkening or lightening of the skin, which is why a chemical peel should only be performed by a dermatological professional who has a thorough understanding of skin care products and the Fitzpatrick skin types. In addition, you can opt to get a chemical peel that is proven safe and effective for darker skin tones, like the VI Peel, the world’s first painless and skin tone inclusive medium-depth chemical peel.


How Many Times A Year Can I Have A VI Peel?

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 skin care plan for your skincare needs. You can also have the VI Peels quarterly/seasonally and receive 4 peels a year for the maintenance of healthy skin.


How Many Peels Do I Need To Start Seeing Results?

Everyone’s skin is a little different, and the number of peels needed for desired results varies from person to person, and from skin condition to skin condition. While just a single peel will achieve significant skin rejuvenation (think less pigment, smoother skin texture, and brighter, glowier skin overall), in general, we recommend a series of 3-6 peels for optimal results. Make sure to consult with your healthcare professional to find a VI Peel treatment frequency that’s right for you.


Does The VI Peel Burn?

The VI Peel does not burn! You may experience slight warmness and tingling in the beginning, but this should quickly subside. Besides the warmness and tingling, VI Peel treatments are virtually painless.


Is The VI Peel Safe For Darker Skin?

Yes! ALL VI Peel treatments are safe and effective for ALL skin tones. Inclusivity is central to our brand and mission, and all Vitality Institute products are created for and with skin of color in mind.



What Will I Look Like Right After The Peel?

Immediately after the peel, your skin may look slightly tan and glowy. You will not look much different and should be okay going about your regular daily routine.


How Long Will I Peel?

In general, you can expect to start peeling on or around day three and peel for about three to four days afterward. Each person’s peeling experience is a little different, and some may peel for more or fewer days, depending on the condition of the skin. If this is your first VI Peel, it’s also normal to peel for a longer period of time.


Can I Wear Makeup After A VI Peel?

After the VI Peel solution is applied to the skin, no makeup or any topical products can be applied for the first 4 hours, including sunscreen! At the 4 hour mark, you can apply makeup after you’ve completed the “Four Hour Post Treatment” steps.



What’s the best post-treatment aftercare routine for chemical peels?

  • Soothe, soothe, soothe! Ask your dermatologist to recommend a professional-grade, super-soothing balm with 1% Hydrocortisone and anti-inflammatory ingredients like Ginger Extract, as well as hydrating ingredients like Glycerin for soothing skin irritation. Our top pick? VI Derm Post-Treatment Repair Cream that’s not only within your skin care budget, but is proven to visibly reduce redness and blotchiness in 2 days.*
  • We can’t say it enough: SPF is your BFF. Your barrier is trying to renew itself and needs all the defense it can get against damaging UV light. Reach for a gentle, hydrating medical-grade SPF, like VI Derm SPF 50 Daily UV Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen.  
  • Follow a gentle skin care routine that includes fragrance free cleansers and moisturizers. Wash your face with cool water, not hot, as it can help with soothing skin irritation and tempering redness.
  • Moisturize. A chemical peel can be drying, and moisture will help keep skin balanced. Moisturizing can also help comfort and soothe during the reparative peeling stage.
  • Don’t do anything that builds heat in the body, from steam rooms to intense exercise.
  • Don’t exfoliate.
  • Reach out to your dermatologist if you have any issues, concerns, or pain.

Reveal Naturally Radiant Skin With SkinPen

Beautiful skin is within your reach with

SkinPen Precision!

This exciting treatment can improve your complexion, reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and reveal smooth healthy skin.

How Does SkinPen work?

SkinPen creates millions of controlled microchannels in the skin. These microchannels jump start the production of collagen and elastin which encourages the release of growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells.  SkinPen is designed to help activate the body’s natural healing response into remodeling the skin while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact, which results in continued cell turnover for months following your treatment. 

What Can I Expect at My SkinPen Treatment?

SkinPen is a simple, comfortable, and effective treatment for skin rejuvenation. Most people see results in as few as three 30-minute sessions.
