The Healing Process
Immediately following treatment you will experience some swelling and redness. If your doctor uses advanced modes during the procedure, the area treated will appear red for a longer period of time. In most cases, this issue resolves in one to three weeks. During that time, with the exception of the first few days post-treatment, you may apply makeup to tone down the redness. Normal activities may be resumed, in most cases, within 5-7 days. Laser energy micro-ablates tissue leaving small micro-wounds bridged by healthy tissue. Your body’s natural healing process stimulates the creation of new tissue and collagen for a younger more youthful appearance of the skin.
