How Soon Can I Apply Make Up After a Vi Peel?
Doctor Answers (2)
Makeup is ok after the Vi Peel
Wait to apply make up after Vi Peel
I recommend that you wait until you wash the peel off, at least four hours after application, before applying make up. In my experience, patients who apply make up immediately are more likely to develop irritation and hyperpigmentation--perhaps from the rubbing required for removal.
