Recovery Time and Results
After your treatment, you may experience itching, swelling, or redness, which some describe as a sunburn. This should pass by the next day.
Once these side effects disappear, you can continue regular activities, including makeup application. You will notice the pigmented areas getting darker. This is entirely normal and part of the healing process. These areas will rise and flake off, and the healthy new skin underneath is revealed. It’s important not to pick at these areas, but allow them to fall off naturally. Once revealed, the new skin underneath will continue to improve, with final results appearing in 1-2 weeks.
For some patients, results may be seen after one treatment. Others require more than one treatment to get the final, ideal results they desire. This will depend on your skin type, the severity of your skin damage, and whether your condition is vascular or based on sun damage.
Once treatments are complete, you can expect your skin to be smoother, more radiant, and glowing, without pigmentation concerns.
