How Long Should I Wait to Use an AHA Product After IPL?

I had full face IPL on Aug 11th and was wondering how long to wait before going back to my AHA and Ziana creams. Thanks!

Once your skin has healed completely, generally within 10-14 days (sometimes sooner depending on how strong/aggressive a treatment you had) you can return to using your regular products like AHA and Ziana. If you are having a series of treatments, we request that you stop using the products 3 days before you have a treatment.
