VI Peel: Worked For Cystic Acne, Esthetician Said I Got Burned, Should I Get Another One? (photo)

It has been about 10 month since my 2nd VI Peel, which did a lot of damage. The first peel was phenomenal and I had my second one a month after that. I have one more VI peel left and I am hoping and it would work like the first one and fix the issues shown in pictures. I went in for a consultation and the esthetician said the spots where I had the cystic acne shot with cortisone looks burned. After 10 months, Am I ready for another VI Peel to make my skin smooth again? What's going on?

Chemical peels


Chemical peels should be done only by those specialties that understand skin and diagnose problems of the skin, skin types and the appropriate treatment. Cosult a plastic surgeon or dermatologist for skin care.
