Aloe Vera Use

Aloe vera is used to soothe the burining feeling of laser treatment. I only recommend the use of aloe vera if the skin is not penetrated by the laser. It is okay to use with an IPL laser.

Aloe vera use with laser

It is only used after a laser procedure to help soothe the burning feeling. I don't recommend it on most people because it can seep into the laser holes and cause problems. If the skin is not penetrated, it is fine to use, such as with IPL or Excel V laser. Cooling it prior to use is also helpful.
