How Soon After a VI Peel Can I Shave my Beard Area?

I am a 37 year old male with normal skin. I had a VI peel four days ago and I'm wondering when I can start shaving again. I'm in my second day of peeling.

Shaving After Peel

You should wait about 10-14 days to shave your beard area, depending on your peeling. Be careful, the area will still be sensitive after the peel during shaving.

How Soon After a VI Peel Can I Shave my Beard Area?

You should wait about ten days after a ViPeel to make sure all peeling has subsided.  You can then shave at that time, using caution with sensitivity to your skin.
