I am hispanic (Olive skin), with nevus of ota on 1/4 of my face. I am hyper sensative to pigmentation (bruise easily). I want to know if Vi Peel would work for me. Also, is ViPeel safe to use over the lower and upper eye lid?

Vi Peel on Olive skin

Vi Peel is a topical application of a cocktail of weak acids. There is no bruising involved in this procedure. I have used Vi Peel on many Hispanic patients with no side effects. However, I would not use it on the nevus. I routinely apply the peel on the upper and lower lids.
