How Long Do You Have to Wait After Receiving a Vi Peel to Get Levulan PDT? face (acne)
Recovery from a Fi Peel
I would wait 3-4 weeks after all healing or about one month if healed within one week. Complete epidermal cell turnover requires about one month. Good luck.
Recovery From Vi Peel
I recommend that you wait at least a few weeks after your Vi Peel before getting PDT. Typically a Vi Peel requires about one week of healing, but I still advise you wait a little longer before subjecting your skin to a treatment with a light source. One's skin is more sensitive after a peel and you want to avoid any undesired side effects from the PDT treatment (if done too soon).
