I had a vi peel and on day three I started peeling. I thought the instructions; don't pull at the skin, meant if it was tough to
Thanks for your question. Although it is tempting to "help" the skin off you really need to allow the skin to come off naturally. Peeling the skin too soon can cause damage and make the recovery longer than it needs to be. It is important to apply the post peel protectant and sunscreen multiple times a day. It is a good idea to contact the office where you had the peel and relay this information with them so they may assist you with any complications from peeling the skin off too soon. Best wishes.

Peeled skin off before it fell off after Vi Peel
Most people have an urge to peel at the flakey skin post peel. The new skin that has been exposed to the environment was not ready. It is unlikely you caused any damage but your recovery time may take a little longer. Call the office where you had your Vi Peel and ask for a "post procedural" serum such as NeoCutis Bio Serum to use with the post peel moisturizer that came in your take home pack. Using this serum under the provided moisturizer will repair, ease discomfort and add essential support to protect. Make sure your not leaving the house without SPF 30.
