Immediately after the treatment, the area exposed to the laser light will be red and sore. Redness will dwindle within a few minutes after the end of treatment. Most patients’ skin is completely calmed overnight and the next day they can use standard products for skin care and make-up.
Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 7-10 days after the treatment, do not apply soap directly to the treated area if your skin is not calmed, and do not rub the face during the first few days after the treatment. Avoid toners, various serums, facial peeling and heavy make-up until your skin is completely calmed. You can apply ice to the problem area to help you be more comfortable and to speed up recovery.
