What should I expect after the treatment?Leave a Comment
Your physician has designed an after-care regimen to address the common side effects associated with laser resurfacing and will include specific instructions to minimize these effects and hasten your healing. Localizes swelling may be present in the treated area and can be addressed with cool compresses and keeping the area elevated. Redness may persist for several days, depending on the depth of the treatment, but will resolve over time. It is important that you avoid sun exposure, especially while your skin is healing. If you must go outdoors, it is recommended that you cover your treated skin, wear a hat and use sun block of SPF 30 or higher after skin has healed.
