Most patients require only a single treatment; however, a subset of patients may benefit from a touch-up treatment at a later date.

Recovery After CO2 Laser Resurfacing

After your laser procedure, you will be required to use a therapeutic cream (Aquaphor) for 5-7 days. Redness, tightness of the skin, and a sunburn sensation are normal side effects during the healing process. After the first week, you will notice a significant reduction in scarring, wrinkles, and age spots. Additionally, your body will continue to produce new collagen, further enhancing your results over the next 6-9 months.

Am I a Good Candidate for CO2 Skin Resurfacing in Westchester, NY?
