Sun after Vi-Peel
Being in the sun following a Vi-Peel can be dangerous, especially less than one week out. I would recommend avoiding the sun all together, if possible. However, if this is an event that you must attend then I would take extra precautions wearing a 50 sunscreen that is a broad spectrum with UVA and UVB protection. As with any peel it's best to consult with your skin care specialist on advice for post procedure instructions.
