On day 9 of my Vi peel and I don't see any improvements with brown spots or acne. This flare up was caused by a reaction to a mirena device which was removed 5 months ago but I'm still dealing with face issues. I'm Caucasian, 32, and have never had acne or brown spots before. Mirena destroyed my nice skin. Any help on this? I thought the Vi peel would help.

Expectation management with Vi Peel
It sounds like you may have melasma, a condition in which brown patches appear on the skin often as a results of hormonal therapies such as mirena. This can be tough to treat. One Vi Peel is not going to completely take care of it. There are a number of treatment options and combinations for this problem, including peels, hydroquinone, brightening agents and sunscreen. I would advise seeking the care of a board-certified dermatologist who can advise you and offer both prescriptions and procedures rather than someone who only offers peels. Good luck.
