Yag laser after peel
Wait Time Between Vitalize Peel and Yag Laser Treatment
Downtime after a chemical peel varies depending on the patient's skin and the type of peel. I would recommend waiting to have the Yag treatment (or any laser treatment) until your skin appears to be back to baseline (pre-peel) conditions. If your skin is still peeling, crusted, raw or pink (or red) in any areas that were peeled, it is too soon to be having a laser treatment. Make sure to stay out of the sun and hydrate your skin with bland emollients for optimal recovery from the peel.
