It is completely normal to have dryness after a Vi-Peel, as skin is in healing process. It will resolve once the skin is healed.

I am having slight redness after my VI peel. I just had it yesterday, but my face is already starting to turn slightly red. Why is this? I put sunscreen on and used the post-peel protectant 4 times, as well as the Vaseline-like lotion I was given to prevent tightness and dryness. I am a little concerned. Could it be an allergic reaction, or perhaps from the food I've been eating?
