I would wait one month before you get any other treatments. It takes one month for your skin to regenerate.

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).
