I juz had my first VI peel. I have a wheatish brown indian skin color but i had lot of breakouts last month resulting in hyper pigmentation on all those breakouts, i felt sick when i look myself in the mirror, so i decided i meet my dermatologist for a fraxel treatment but she told me that kind of laser treatments are aggressive and my skin is not in that worse condition to pick laser(No wonder cost was around 2000$/sitting).hence she suggested me the VI peel, i am praying that the hyper pigmentation (one of the side effects)doesn't occur to me.
My doctor first cleansed my face, observed keenly on my dark spots, she applied alchohol, then applied 3 chemicals on my face, the frst two sting on my face,forehead and jawline,but the last chemical(retinol)had a cooling effect on my skin, she applied on my neck and face. Its been 3 hours now. I applied lots of sunscreen and protected myself from the sun.I need to wash my face in 3 more hours.then then applied the sunscreen. Today is Wednesday, hopefully i should start peeling from friday after noon. and go intense on saturday and sunday. I am prepared to hibernate for this weekend. Lets hope for the best.
I will keep you updated on my experience.
