Is it safe? Any chance of scarring at all? What is the true down time? I have kiloid scars from scabs I picked when I was 12 years old. Haven't scabbed like this since then but I am just interested in the risks. I am 48 and considering this peel.

The Vi Peel is a relativley low risk peel that can even be used safely on patients with darker skin. The usual downtime is about a week.
