What is the recommend time frame to get a facial around getting laser hair removal?

For example, I want to get a facial one day before laser hair removal (only my lip). Is this recommended? If i wanted to get the facial with extractions afterwards, how long should I wait?

Facial after Laser Hair Removal

This should not be a problem. I recommend getting the facial 24 hours before or after laser hair removal treatment. If you have any concerns I suggest contacting your treating physician.

There is no need to wait longer than 24 hours after treatment. If you're concerned, I recommend asking your Dr or avoiding the lip area during your facial. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Facial after LHR for lip

There is no need to be worried about this. If done properly, recovery from LHR is hours. Plan for facial at anytime before or after. If needed, can just avoid the lip area.
