You do not need to stop using renova prior to a peel. It can be used right up to peel time!!

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with what Renova is and a Vi Peel. If Renova is a skin bleaching topical agent then you should probably stop using at least 3 days prior to a peel. However, not familiar with these 2 specific articles your referring to so I can't say for sure.

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?
