What sort of skincare regimen should I follow after my laser resurfacing procedure?
The skincare regimen that you follow after a laser resurfacing depends on the type of resurfacing and how aggressive your treatment. In general, in the first week while the top layer of the skin is growing back, a mild ointment or cream is utilized to keep the area moist. During this week, the skin is washed gently with water to remove old skin and keep the area clean. After approximately 1 week, usually a gentle cleanser and moisturizer can be used and you can usually start wearing makeup to cover the redness of the new skin.
