When Can I Exfoliate After Halo Laser?

Embarking on the transformative journey of a Halo Laser treatment is an exciting step toward radiant skin. As you prioritize the health and appearance of your skin post-procedure, the inevitable question arises: When can I exfoliate after Halo Laser?

After a Halo laser treatment, it is important to wait at least 7 days before exfoliating your skin. Exfoliating too early can irritate the skin and disrupt the healing process, potentially leading to scarring or hyperpigmentation.

Here’s a breakdown of the typical healing timeline after a Halo laser treatment:

  • Day 1: Your skin will be red, swollen, and warm to the touch. You may also experience some mild discomfort.
  • Days 2-3: The redness and swelling will start to subside, but your skin may still feel tight and dry. You may also experience some flaking or peeling.
  • Days 4-6: The peeling will continue and your skin may start to feel itchy.
  • Day 7: The peeling should be mostly complete and your skin will start to feel smoother. You can now start to gently exfoliate your skin using a soft washcloth or a gentle exfoliating scrub.

Here are some additional tips for caring for your skin after a Halo laser treatment:

  1.  Wash your face gently with lukewarm water and a mild cleanser twice a day.
  2.  Avoid using harsh soaps, scrubs, or astringents.
  3.  Avoid using hot water on your face.
  4.  Apply a moisturizer to your face several times a day.
  5.  Wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even if it is cloudy.
  6.  Avoid picking at your skin.
  7.  Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
  8.  Avoid tanning beds and direct sunlight for at least 6 weeks after your treatment.
