Using Retin -A after a Vi Peel
In my practice I usually tell patients that they can resume application of Retin A or other retinoids 1 week after a Vi Peel assuming that the peeling has stopped at that time. We usually advise patients to stop the retinoid 3 days before a facial. Always check with the person who is treating you.
We usually tell our patients to wait at least 2 weeks before starting Retin-A. Each practice is different you should ask the doctor that applied the peel.
