Recovery & Results
After your procedure, your skin will appear “frosty,” due to dehydrated skin cells treated by the laser. These skin cells will flake away within the next few days following your procedure, leaving smoother, more youthful skin in its wake. The skin may be red and sensitive (resembling a sunburn); as well as, have some mild swelling during this part of the recovery, which usually lasts 3-4 days. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun (or ultra-violet light) after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed and apply sunscreen to treated areas for protection. Once the peeling is over and the redness has subsided, you will probably feel comfortable applying makeup and returning to your daily routine. Results will be apparent once the skin has healed. Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, however, the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient.
