Peel Every Other Day? Skin Care Product Tips

August 12, 2008
Hi Dr. Rivkin

Thanks on behalf of all MMH'ers for guiding us and providing useful info and your time:)
I have light brown/olive skin with acne pigmentation/scars with a spot or two every now and then, and I've had a VI peel about 3 weeks ago with satisfactory results. My Aesthetician said I could do a light peel every other day at home to keep the results.

This sounds a bit weird, is it not harmful for the skin to peel it so often? Do you agree with the Aesthetician? If so, would you please tell me what peel is best and what prcentage so when she gives it to me I know I am doing the right thing.

Thanks v. much



hi,
i agree with you.
that is too aggressive.
i would speak to the doctor there to see what kinds of home products they recommend - there's lots of good products. but you should not be doing a peel every other day.
we use IS clinical, skinceuticals, pevonia and glo minerals as our primary ines.
you should be using a moisturizer, a good gentle cleanser, a sunscreen (perhaps as one product with the moisturizer), and an antioxidant like prevage or CE ferulic (skinceuticals). a topical retin-a at night is not a bad idea as well. every once in a while (like every 2 weeks to a month) you can go in and have a microdermabrasion or a light peel at the esthetician's office, or even do a light peel at home.
hope that helps
