How long do you have to wait between microdermabrasion and laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal

Microdermabrasion removes the surface layer of the skin and exposes the more sensitive cells beneath.  Various techniques are employed by different providers that may be more aggressive, and  your skin type may be more  sensitive to both the microdermabrasion and laser treatments.  I would recommend waiting at least a week before having any kind of laser tretment in an area which was treated with microdermabrasion.

Waiting period between microdermabrasion and LHR

You need to wait until the redness settles from the microdermabrasion. This shouldn't be but a day or 2.
