After facial laser treatment of IPL, V-Beam and Blu-light, my face is peeling rather alot! I want to know why I shouldn’t use an exfoliate or a buff-puff face scrubber to get rid of some of this shedding dead skin that is driving me crazy. Or can I use them gently?
Why is It Important Not to Scrub Your Face After Laser Treatments?

Avoid rough cleaning of lasered skin
You should be gentle after laser treatment of your facial skin so as not to traumatize the tissue which could lead to hyperpigmentation, erosions and possible scarring. Gentle cleansers and wiping and good emollients are important.
