I Had the Vi Peel Done but It Doesn't Seem to Have Peeled That Much? (photo0

By the End of the Second Day I Began to Notice Flakiness. I kept it very moist adding Eucerin to keep the dryness down. Was just wondering why I never saw sheets coming off like what I've seen online? Did it not work? I see a little freshness but really nothing more than you'd get with a facial. I use retin a on a regular basis, maybe that's why? My face is still crazy itchy even after moisturize and Benadryl. thoughts?

Keeping the skin moist can stop the skin from peeling from how it was suppose too. I usually inform patients to stay out of the sun and making sure they apply SPF, trying not to use a moisturizer cause it can stop or slow the peeling. If the skin is really dry and itchy you can apply a small amount of hydrocortisone. Best of luck
