I have had so many peels over the years: TCA, Jessner's, glycolic, Blue Peel (will never do that one again - OUCH!), all of the SkinMedica peels, and I have to say that the Vi Peel is by far the BEST one I've ever experienced! I will continue to have these 2 or 3 times a year to keep my skin looking fresh. If you can just stop yourself from trying to "help" it off and let time take it's course, the results are incredible. I tend to want to pick, so it was hard for me not to, but my aesthetician told me to spray my face with water any time I wanted to touch my face, and that made all the difference. I would recommend this to everyone that is concerned with sundamage, wrinkles, acne/acne scars or just wants their skin to look better and tighter in general.

Thanks for the peeling pics! I'm going to get this peel tomorrow and I'm a bit scared since I'm fair skinned too. You have great eyes!

I am also from Columbia. Where did you get your peel done?

Thanks for sharing your photos. For day 3 - is that the 3rd day after (not counting the day the procedure was performed)? What does day 1 and 2 look like? I'm trying to decide what day of the week is best to get this done. Thanks!

The day of the peel and the first 48 hours, I looked just fine - actually, slightly tan. It was at the 48 hour mark that I started to peel. I'd say if you want to look good BY the weekend, then do it on a Monday. If you want to hide out OVER the weekend, then do it on a Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning. That has been my experience anyway.

Thanks for being so brave and posting! I appreciate you showing the peel days. You look great on day 5! I have my first peel on Thursday after work, then I go on travel for work on Tuesday. I should be fine by the right? No peeling?

Wow, you were seriously peeling on day 3 & 4! Thank you so much for posting those pictures so we could really see what its like. Were you wearing face makeup in your day 5 picture?

You have gorgeous eyes by the way! :)

Thanks Megan! Yes, those really are Days 3 & 4. I followed the directions to a "t" with the towelettes, post-peel protectant and sunblock. I think the distilled spray water really helped a LOT! Day 5 photo is just a tiny, tiny bit of Oxygenetix foundation (barely any) mixed with Oxygenetix moisturizer...so to give it a little tint - and of course mascara and lips. Can't go anywhere without those. :)

Haha, I rarely leave the house without mascara so I definitely hear you there!

Wow, I can't believe how much of a change there was between day 4 & 5! Are you noticing any other changes now?

Overall, my skin continues to improve. Way fewer breakouts and pores are smaller. It just looks and feels better. I can't wait to do another one.

How long will you be waiting between peels?

I usually get some sort of peel every couple of months but this was the first Vi Peel I had ever had. I think I'm not going to do any others except this one from now on since the results were so good.
