Vi Peel Experience Not Bad At All - Orlando, FL

Day 1: Yesterday, Monday afternoon, had a Vi Peel for the first time. Was much easier than I expected. Slight burning when the solution was applied. On a scale from 1 to 10, it was maybe a 2.

During the evening, my face was itchy, but applied some 1% Cortisone cream and it was fine. Woke up 2 to 3 times during the night because of itchiness. Not bad at all.

Day 2: Today, Tuesday. My face looks like it has a bad sunburn, just as the office told me it would. A little itchy, but again, not too bad.

Should be peeling on Wednesday or Thursday. I'll post more info at that time.


Day 3:  Wednesday, last evening I was able to...

Day 3:  Wednesday, last evening I was able to go to my ballroom dance class, cautioned, however, by the Doctor's staff, not to let my face sweat, which I didn't.  Last night was uneventful.  Applied the last post-peel towelette to my face, which I also did on night 2 and forgot to mention.  This morning, I noticed that I was beginning to peel around my mouth area.  The most important instruction is not to touch your face or pick at the dead skin.  So far, so good.


Day 4, Thursday:  My face is really peeling...

Day 4, Thursday:  My face is really peeling today.  I made sure to actually cut the hanging skin from my face instead of pulling it.  Very itchy.  Applied a light coat of Cortison cream and it takes the itch away.  Not too much to say.  No pain or discomfort at all.  So far, so good.


Day 5, Friday:  Most of the peeling has...

Day 5, Friday:  Most of the peeling has finished.  My skin feels tight and is a little blotchy, which is to be expected.  My neck and around my eyes are still peeling.  Skin is slightly itchy, but cured with the Cortisone cream. 


Day 8, Monday:  Virtually all the peeling has...

Day 8, Monday:  Virtually all the peeling has ended on my face.  Just a little peeling left on my neck.  Now the healing starts.  My face is not red at all...just a little dryness around my mouth.  It's very important to wear a strong sunscreen, which I'm doing.  I had a brown spot just under my eye before I had the peel, and I've noticed that it is much lighter....not totally gone, but a definite change.  My skin is very sorft.  It's my understanding that it will take a couple of weeks for all the healing to occur.  I'll follow-up in a few days and give you the final result.


Friday, Day 11; final post:  Well, my skin is...

Friday, Day 11; final post:  Well, my skin is totally healed and looks really great.  It is so soft and I have a follow-up with Susan, my teriffic anestetitiion, on Monday, which will be one week since my peel.  I can't wait to see the before and after pics.  I'd highly recommend the peel and my Dr.'s office.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

The office was extremely professional. The anesthetion explained everything that she was doing and was very informative. I felt extremely comfortable during the procedure.
