Recently, Vivier created an innovative product targeting fine lines and wrinkles with an ingredient called Polyamine-DAB. It can help restore skin firmness and fullness, and it plays a role in the prevention of hypertrophic scars. One of Vivier’s most famous products is its vitamin C serum made with L-ascorbic acid, which is the purest form of vitamin C and the only type the body can absorb. This anti-aging serum contains vitamin E and peptides as well as the L-ascorbic acid to reduce and prevent signs of aging.

Chemical Peels

At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery, we also offer chemical peels, procedures in which we apply a chemical solution to your skin to remove the top layers. The skin that then grows back is healthier and smoother. You can have a chemical peel on your face, hands, and neck. Chemical peels can help treat many conditions, including:
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Melasma
  • Skin redness
  • Uneven skin tone
There are different types of chemical peels. A light, superficial peel uses mild acids like alpha-hydroxy to exfoliate. This type of peel penetrates only the top layer of skin. It works well to treat wrinkles, acne, and dryness. A medium chemical peel uses trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to reach the middle and outer layer of the skin. It is a highly effective option for treating wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tones. A deep chemical peel fully penetrates the middle layer of skin, usually by using phenol or trichloroacetic acid. It can be a good choice for treating deeper wrinkles and scars. The best candidates for chemical peels are people with mild skin imperfections looking to enhance their overall appearance. Those who have a history of irregular scarring, skin that is more sensitive than normal, or who have a naturally dark complexion or skin tone are not the best candidates. If you have used Accutane in the past six months, we will ask you to wait before a chemical peel. To decide on the best type of chemical peel for your needs, we will assess your skin at your consultation and see what works best.

Preparing for a Chemical Peel

To prepare for a chemical peel, you must stop using retinol products for at least 48 hours before the procedure. We recommend you use a glycolic acid lotion to improve treatment and stop exfoliating, waxing, or hair bleaching. If you get a medium or deep chemical peel, which requires an anesthetic, you also need to arrange for a ride home.

Recovering from a Chemical Peel

Recovery can take four to seven days for a light chemical peel, while a medium peel can take five to seven days. Recovering from a deep chemical peel can take at least two weeks.


We offer Latisse to help you grow the lashes you want. It is a treatment option perfect for people who cannot grow hair around the eyes, have thin and few eyelashes, or are experiencing the loss of lashes because of an illness or stress. The active ingredient is a prostaglandin analogue, which helps stimulate hair growth. We apply this solution to the end of the lashes to help boost their growth, thickness, and length. It is an option that also works for people who use contact lenses.
