What is the recovery like after a laser skin resurfacing procedure?
Messy, but there is little or no pain. It is messy because we cover the skin with an OTC preparation called Aquaphor until the lasered skin peels and is replaced with new skin. This takes 7-10 days depending on the depth of the re-surfacing. Your skin may be a bit pink at this point. You may need a steroid cream for a week or so after the first week. You can usually wear make up at 2 weeks.
