I started breaking out in my early 30s. Never had trouble with acne before. WHY NOW!! I went to a few dermatologists and finally found one that was empathetic with my change in skin. I have tried countless of creams, facial cleansing routines (high grade pharmaceutical and botanical), diet changes (gluten/lactose free), vitamins, antibiotics, retinoids....... nothing helped like the VI peel. I finally was at my end of help when I decided to sign up for the i pledge contract to start accutane. My derm didn't think my acne was THAT bad but my scarring and new acne made me feel that i would never see clear skin again! I then chickened out after reading more on accutane. So i went back and asked if anything else would help. She advised me of the VI peel. I had my first one last october. Since then, IM HOOKED. My skin became soft, supple, even, pores non existent and my acne.. MUCH BETTER. I still have the occasional few that come around the monthly cycle but what a difference it has made. I now get one done every 3-4 months to keep acne under control and scars limited. I highly recommend it. Don't pay too much for it though.. VI peels can usually be purchased for around 150-200. Some places charge more. research medusas around you and derms also provide these as well. consider a 4 day downtime. What i usually do is not work the first, third and fourth day. Second day of peel you look taut and tan. no peeling. good luck!!
