What to expect during recovery?
This isn’t any recovery where the patient needs to stay in bed or miss work or something like that. Following these procedures, the skin is usually red; it’s as if the patient has a mild sunburn. This can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the strength of the laser chosen for treatment. These are easy-to- tolerate treatments whose results build as the body increases collagen production as a response to the laser energy.
One thing that is true with any of these procedures is that your skin needs to be protected from sun exposure for a period of at least two weeks afterward. This is because the laser or IPL energy can break down some of the skin’s natural protection against the sun’s UV radiation. Applying 30+ SPF sunscreen or wearing protective clothing is necessary for a couple of weeks.
