VI Peel with Sjogren’s Syndrome

 
Hi and thank you for your question! You do need to consult the doctor you are seeing for the Sjogren’s syndrome for the definitive answer, but it is not very likely that a superficial skin treatment such as chemical peels (including VI Peel) is going to affect the underlying Sjogren’s syndrome much. Some patients with Sjogren’s might have dry skin in which case more caution should be applied with opting for milder/lighter treatments and avoiding deep peels. Again, please check this with your doctor as well and good luck!
