I did the VI peel for melisma on both cheeks and it was also combined with a laser treatment for the melisma. I am Asian with olive skin and was told that BBL would not be safe for my skin so we opted for the VI Peel with IPL.Day 1 (THURSDAY); I left the peel on until I went to bed. I actually went out to dinner that night with a hat on because you really couldn't see the orange tint of the peel since I am already olive skinned. That evening I did the towelettes and at 1 AM, I sat straight up in bed from stinging and could not sleep the ret of the night.Day 2; not much going on except for the towelettes at night again and some stinging but I could sleepDay 3; uneventfulDay 4 some peeling around chin and by the evening, I was peeling big pieces around mouth and chin and I could see peeling start on forehead but not like the mouth areaDay 5 and 6: on day 5 most of my face peeled and then day 6 there was minor peeling.Day 7; I woke up with NO melasma on my face at all and only two tiny little spots left to peel and the most beautiful skin I have ever seen. I have never had skin this smooth and perfect before. WOW. I would do this again but it is not a "no down-time" solution. I did not exercise nor did I go to work. I did run errands with a big hat and sunscreen and dealt with strange looks but I did my best to stay out of the sun. I used the post peel protectant like crazy and a face oil to keep everything moisturized. For the first few days I also used hydrocortisone for the itching. I drank lots of water and pretty much watched Netflix. I do not see how you could work and return to normal activities like the advertisement says....maybe if you worked with two people but I work in a corporate office setting. I don't think I need to do it again unless the melisma comes back. I had only minor stinging during application and after the evening of Day 1, I did not have any other discomfort other than some minor itching in the early days.

I had a VI peel at a medspa. I followed the provider's post instructions perfectly. I did not peel at all. I contacted the medspa and was told that some people don't peel. It is very rare, however. I was and still am very unhappy. I did not even experience tightness. Waste of money for me. Perhaps more positive experience for others, but waste of time, gas, and money.

I got my VI Peel online at www.skincareandpeels.com . I love my results so much! This is an amazing Peel and I recommend it to everyone. It was so easy to do and only $160 . I previously spent $400 on one at a spa. Never will do that again.

I was lucky enough to get this peel for free when I worked for a derm years ago, and it made my (at the time, almost perfect but blackhead and whitehead-ridden skin) absolutely flawless! It burns, but not as bad as a Jessner's peel and I onky peeled on day three for two and a half days. Once the peeling was finished, what was revealed was clear, smooth, poreless baby skin! I have had bad results with other peels, but I would do this again in a heartbeat!

I'd done 3 times of the regular VI peel last year. This year, I moved on to the VI Precision Peel, which is 25% stronger. Do note that VI Precision is NOT the same as VI Precision Plus. I'm documenting down my fifth peel, with before and after photos. I hope this can help give you an idea on what to expect and help you understand the timeline of events so that you can plan your days better.

This review is for the regular VI peel. I have not had the precision plus VI peel (much stronger) or the VI peel for acne (also stronger). The stronger peels would be too much for my sensitive skin. I believe the stronger peels may have been used in some of the poor reviews on this site, but I cannot be sure. If you have sensitive skin, opt for the original VI peel, you won't be disappointed!! I had this peel for the first time in May at a board certified plastic surgeons office, by a talented licensed esthetician over the long Memorial day weekend. I had it done on a Friday afternoon, and was back to work on Tuesday. I had this done as I have been struggling with adult acne and wanted better skin tone and clarity. I love this peel, It really helped to clear my skin, took care of some dark spots, and made my pores appear smaller. The skin starts to really peel on days 3-4 and is mostly done on day 5. I had some itching/ burning, but using the creams that come in the post peel packet really helps. I also took some ibuprofen to help any inflammation that may come up. I went back to my regular skin care regimen 10 days post peel, including skinceuticals and some IS clinical products. I am on day 3 of my second peel right now, done at the same office. This time I had it done on a Tuesday afternoon, and worked on Wednesday (no peeling on day 2 really). I have off and do not return to work until Monday. This time, I had a bit more of a prickly itchiness on the first and second nights. Benadryl and the cream that came in the packet really helped with this. DO NOT PICK or rub the peeling skin at all! Hands off of your face! When you wash it, use clean hands, gentle cleanser, and pat dry. Do not use any of your normal facial products for 10 days post peel. Sunscreen all the time during the day, even if you will not be outside much. I plan to do a total of 4 of these peels this year, and then do 2 next year. I have some acne scars I am working to get rid of. The first peel really diminished them nicely, faded some sun/ age spots, made my pores smaller, and cleared up the acne I had. I have sensitive skin, very light, and some freckles. I have not had any issues with this peel, other than the bit of itching and burning that should be somewhat expected. Once again, I am so happy to have the opportunity to do this!

DIsaster!I recieved the VI Peel for Acne. I also have some hyperpigmentation and some very early fine lines on my forehead.Not only did the peel do NOTHING for my fine lines/hyperpigmentation, it made my skin break out horribly. I usually suffer from very mild acne (in fact, my skin was completely clear when I got the chemical peel) and afterward I had an entire face (and NECK) of acne. Getting the peel was easy, however. It burns for only a minute and then the skin fully peeled off within a few days as promised. However, I basically paid $300 to look really terrible for a few weeks and get additional acne scarring and there has been NO IMPROVEMENT in my skin whatsoever.Really disappointed.

Got the vi peel last week. Had the peel applied Wednesday afternoon, went to dinner Thursday with a bit of a bronzed look and skin was a little tight but not too uncomfortable, then started peeling Friday through Monday. I would say the worst peeling was Saturday and Sunday, but by Monday was looking much better.Overall I am so glad I did the peel. I am half asian half spanish and am a 3 on the Fitzpatrick scale so have sensitive, naturally tannish skin, and was extremely nervous it would further aggravate the hyper-pigmentation and orange-peel texture from a botched laser debaucle six months ago. The esthetician assured me it'd be fine for my skin, and she was right. After the peel the texture of my skin seems to be going back to what it had been before the laser, and the hyperpigmentation has gotten better (my face and neck still dont match but instead of being 5-6 shades darker than my neck, it's more like 2-3 darker now which is progress). Before this I should mention that I tried a number of things to reverse the laser damage: obagi nu derm, vitamin C masks, retin-A, psoria gold, facials, scrubs, nothing to let skin heal - but nothing really worked. My skin still looked like it had a permanent windburn with goggles, and the actual skin turned darker, dull, and dead-looking like a tan rubber eraser at the end of pencil. My original skin texture had always been smooth, but after this Fraxel episode it had taken on an orange peel/golf ball texture with visibly rough surface -- so bizarre and distressing! And no matter what topical stuff I put on, it didn't seem to help; i think the top layers of my skin were literally dead and wouldn't absorb anything since it was essentially one large dark-ish scab stretched across my face. Really, really terrible. Anyway, and obviously, I've been nervous ever since to do anything else remotely invasive, but the esthecian was great and told me it's safe for my skin type, and that it's even ok to do once every four weeks (which seems aggressive bc it does take off a few layers of skin), but I'm definitely going to do it again in 3 months to continue to try to reverse the orange peel texture, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation damage of the fraxel. The acne scars I had are still there too and look pretty much the same, but that wasn't my goal anyway -- I was trying to improve the texture, which it really did. Can't wait to do the next one!I got a pretty good deal but normally the peel at the medi spa costs $350. I would pay that now knowing how much it helped the texture of my skin. Hope it helps and good luck!
