Thanks for the question. Your skin takes 28 days to heal from a chemical peel. Getting the Vi peel too soon may result in adverse reactions. A good rule of thumb when dealing with chemical peels is to err on the side of caution. Be patient and give your skin time to heal. Best wishes. 

Fully re-epithelialized

As long as your skin has fully re-epithelialized with no redness and two weeks have passed, you're ready!
