After Vi Peel Treatment No Peeling Process on my Cheeks or Forehead, is It Normal?

I had vI peel 4 days a go. I have just some peeling around my chin. No other parts of my face peel yet. Is it normal?

No peeling after Vi peel

Usually one peels significantly after a Vi peel. If you did not use the pledgets at home, however, there will be significantly less peeling. On the other hand, peeling can vary each time one gets a peel.

Make sure to apply all towlets that was provided when you did the vi peel, also trying not to wash your face with warm water, no scrubs or moisturizer, this can slow the peeling process. Everyone reacts differently when doing a treatment, give it a few more days and ask your medical advisor if the area still has not peeled
