Can I wear a face mask after my chemical peel?
YES! Let’s get right to the point, putting on a face mask after receiving a VI Peel will not affect the outcome of the peel. By the time the treatment is over, the acids have penetrated as deep as they are going to go, a mask will not interfere with the performance of those acids.
Can I be out in the sun after my chemical peel?
As a rule, treat it like a sunburn: avoid sun exposure, avoid sweating and avoid heat.
During the peeling phase you must avoid sun exposure. Even after the peeling has subsided your new skin will be sensitive to UV light. Protect your investment and reapply your sunscreen when outdoors.
How long will my skin peel?
Days 3, 4 and 5 are the typical days of peeling. By day 6 most exfoliation has subsided.
Typically, peeling begins on the third day, starting around the mouth then peeling outward. The forehead and neck will be the last areas to peel.
The amount of visible peeling you will experience varies greatly. You will peel as much as your skin needs to peel
