I run about 10 miles every other day. I had a vi peel 5 days ago. What is the issue with sweating?
Why Cant You Sweat After the Vi Peel?

Sweating after the VI Peel
If you perspire after your VI Peel it creates irritation on the surface of the just treated skin. The salty components of your sweat causes a burning on the surface of the skin, causing undo discomfort and chances for complications. After the initial 2 or 3 days following your VI Peel regular exercise that causes perspiration should be OK.

Sweat and VI Peel
You don't want to exercise right after having a VI Peel because it can reactivate the peel and cause burning and itching to the skin. It can also cause water blisters that form on the skin from sweating. Patience will bring you a beautiful result so hang in there!
Vi Peel and Sweating
From my experience using the Vi Peel on patients, I have seen pockets of sweat develop in areas that were in the process of peeling. While unsightly, it did not affect the overall result of the Vi Peel.

My understanding it that you want to avoid sweating until you wash the peel off--at least 4 hours after application. In part this is to keep the product on the skin as well as to avoid conact with the eyes. Make sure you moisturize aggresively. I tell my patients to apply the moisturizer at least 4 times a day after a Vi Peel. I don't restrict sweating otherwise and have never heard a complaint.
