Pre treatments for Vi peels?

Hi. I am currently using Clindamycin (1%) and Benzoyl Peroxide (5%) topical gel, and Adapalene cream (1%), can I undergo Vi peel or Vi peel precision plus? Do I need to stop using these topical creams before the peel? Thank you!

VI Peels

Thank you for your question. In my opinion, topical medications, especially retinoids such as tretinoin, adapalene, Retin-A, Differin, etc., should be stopped 3 days prior to a VI peel or VI Peel Precision Plus. They can be resumed once your skin is done peeling. I highly recommend you consult with an experienced and certified technician or physician regarding your questions and concerns. Take care and good luck.
