Vi Peel for slightly darker Korean-American skin
AcneBlackheads & Whiteheads

Hi there,
I'm a 28 year old Korean-American and have slightly darker skin tone than most Koreans. I have acne scars and congestion in my forehead (kinda like whiteheads). I am wondering if a Vi peel is safe for my skin type. I don't take any medications and am not allergic to any prescription drugs. I do occasionally smoke (about 4-5x a day)but when I do the peel, I am going to quit... because this is a big investment for me and I don't want smoking to cause a delay in the heeling process.

Your expert advice would be greatly appreciated.

It's a good peel for darker skin as well as asian skin. The only thing to keep in mind is that Vi Peel is not a one time treatment. Most of the time you will need to do a few sessions for (more)
