At Home Vi Peel - Safe?

Home Peels a Bad Idea!
Peels can give quite dramatic results when done by an experienced practitioner. However, they can be somewhat unpredictable. If you develop a superficial infection it can make the peel go deeper and lead to scaring. Post treatment they require close supervision. Also, if you have a history of cold sores you can set off an out break which can lead to scaring if not properly treated.

VI Peel at home? Not a great idea.
First, you should have a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist who can evaluate your skin and tell you if a VI peel is even a good option for you. If they don't offer the VI peel, they may have another suitable option.
I would not advise buying products online (who knows if they're legitimate, if they're expired, etc?), and I would not advise a self-diagnosis.
