I am a 52-year-old man interested in laser skin resurfacing. How long must I wait after the procedure to start shaving again?
Usually shaving can begin following complete reepithelialization. We have the patient’s utilize a special facial cleanser as a shaving lubricant rather than shaving cream for the early time period. Usually you need to wait 8-10 days to shave. This time is variable based upon the depth of the laser resurfacing and the individual healing time.
