Vi Peel: Q&AAsk a Question
Melasma Darker After Two Vipeels and Prominent in Areas I Hadn't Noticed Were Problems Before
The second peel made some of the melasma "pink" but soon became dark brown. My upper lip which had faint patches of melasma are now dark like a moustache. Why is it worse now than before peels? I am a 45 year hispanic with a darker complexion. Vipeel was my last hope. I have tried everything now except laser.
