Body Scrub after Laser Hair Removal
Body scrubs can be safely used 72hrs post treatment. This will allow for any irritation to subside and reduce the risk of any adverse reactions. We recommend our patients to exfoliate 7-10 days post treatment.
Laser hair removal and body scrub
Body scrubs can be used very gently the next day if there are no signs of blisters (the latter should be very rare). If they are used too prematurely and abrade loose skin, then there might be an increased risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation or erosions could even be created.
