Hi guys,

 

I'm on the 5th day after my first session, and almost all of my pigment spots are still covered by tiny scabs.

Does it typically take longer than this before they naturally fall off? My 2nd session is in 2 days and I will put off shaving as long as possible since I don't want to disturb them. Any feedback is appreciated.

Go take a nice shower and those scabs should all wash away. And you're good to shave now, too.

Were you able to use shampoo without a problem by day 5?

Sure, but I still did it gently. You should've received a detailed post-treatment care sheet.

Anyone with questions can call HIS 24/7, toll free. They are well trained to answer these sorts of questions.

If you didn't receive a care sheet, they can email one.

I did, but I just wanted to see how people dealt with many remaining scabs. I want to err on the side of caution when shaving/washing because I know that removing them prematurely can increase fading. I'll post photos after my second session. Thanks!

as the bald ego said, a shower will naturally move a lot of the scabs, but i would also shower/shampoo lightly, as the care instructions suggests a light shower.  I would NOT purposely scratch off the scabs; just let them fall off naturally.

From my experience it's best to not do anything for atleast a week. No shower, no moisturizer. Your skin needs to heal and only time can properly do that. Putting stuff on your head (including chlorinated water from shower) might not be best idea.
This is just from own experience.
