Post-Treatment Care Tips for Patients Undergoing CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Naturally, the treated area will be very sensitive after the laser CO2 treatment. You should do everything you can to protect it from harmful elements. For instance, when you are heading out of the house and exposing yourself to the sun, you should apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 50. Only apply sunscreen that a dermatologist, like Dr. Sara Lea Salas from Baja MediSpa in Tijuana, will recommend for you so you won’t get a negative reaction. Put On Oil-Free Makeup Once you start to see signs of healing, you can go back to using makeup. This will cover up slight redness on the treated areas. Just be sure to get oil-free variants to help along the healing. Opt for green-based makeup as well to disguise the redness.
