I had the Vi Peel/extractions done today at Gina's Skincare in LA. I have acne and scars. My skin has been problematic for the past 9 months or so. I did have acne as a teenager but it went away with birth control pills. I stopped the birth control and about a year after is when the acne started up again. I have tried many topical creams including prescription ones from my dr. Nothing has worked. I am hoping this peel will help.
I will try to post photos for you from each day. So far, my skin is terribly red. It looks and feels like a bad sunburn. It isn't supposed to peel for a couple days so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it works out o.k.
I am on day 7 of the Vi Peel now....
I am on day 7 of the Vi Peel now. The healing process has been irritating and scary over the past week. My skin went from very acne prone, having inflamed, recurring pimples, scars from pimples whether I would squeeze them or not, and regardless of what products or diet plans I have used/tried (I have tried many), my skin has been relentless. Now on day 7, I am thankful that I did it. My skin has improved so much! It started peeling on my neck 2 nights ago. My neck is still peeling and a few spots on my face are still peeling. Overall, I am very happy with it. I will do this again in the future, however, I will make for sure that I take a week off from work and have plenty of food stocked at home so I can all together avoid going out and embarrassing myself while the peel is doing its thing.
