Is there a possibility that I now have rosacea as a result of having CO2 laser surgery, or is this flushing part of the healing process and will reside once I'm healed?

It may be temporary
Vitrually all patients have temporary redness after laser resurfacing, but some more than others. It may come and go. It will worsen after exercise, sun exposure, hot showers, bending over, consumption of alcohol and rubbing with a towel. Every body has a different response. Plesae see your physician to see how they think you’re healing.
