I was hesitant about this peel because it's pricey, but it's totally worth the $$$. I am already scheduled for my 2nd Vi Peel! I wanted to do the Vi Peel because I've been having acne issues over the last year that has caused me so much suffering and has left blemishes that have lasted for months. I am also half Asian with sensitive skin so my Esthetician said I would be a good candidate for this particular peel.
I know the results vary, but I wanted to report my positive results: The Vi Peel is applied in about 5-10 minutes. On a scale of 1-10 the discomfort level was about a 2. It felt like a hot minty tingling on my face. The 1st and 2nd day my face was a bit tanned looking & really tight like a thin plastic mask was covering my face. I started peeling on the 3rd day just around my mouth and in the corners around my nose... I continued peeling on the 4th & 5th day pretty much all over. Don't peel it off, let it come off in the shower! On the 6th day in the shower it just all came off. It felt like globs of dead skin were just shedding off. By day 7 it was petty much all finished except a little peeling left on my neck and hairline.
After the peel my skin was glowing! The even tone is amazing & I love that my pores are now tiny with such a smooth overall texture. I can't believe that it erased the brown spots left from pimples! It looks like I just took a few years off my skin.
About a week after the peel finished my acne returned :( I saw a dermatologist and I am now on medication for my "hormonal" acne I've been experiencing. I've noticed a small improvement already with the medication already, but I'm staying patient for the full results. I was tolled this peel is great for acne, but in my case I think the meds might be a better route since hormones are at the root of the problem. Others might get a better result for clearing their acne with the Vi Peel?
I'm scheduled for my next Vi Peel and I'm SO excited to see even more results! Best wishes everyone on the journey to finding beautiful skin.
