Glycolic Peel in Between Laser Hair Removal Sessions?

Can you use 30% Glycolic Peels in between laser hair removal sessions? My Laser treatments are spaced at 6 week intervals.

Yes, Glycolic Peels Would Be Fine

A 30% glycolic peel is fine after laser hair removal. This peel removes superficial layers and does not penetrate deep to the hair follicle. I would recommend waiting a few days or a week to allow the tissues to recover some before doing the peeling.
