Time to Rest and Recover: What to Expect?
Our advanced laser device produces a specific type of energy that gently penetrates the skin by being absorbed by the water in the cells. After your treatment, you can expect your skin to appear reddened, and swelling is normal. Your skin requires about 10 days to two weeks to heal in most cases, after which you can start wearing makeup again. For less extensive treatments the recovery time may be shorter. After your treatment, it is imperative that you avoid any sun exposure, always wearing sunscreen and a hat when out of doors.
