Can I Wash my Face One Day After Fractional Co2 Procedure?

Washing your face after co2 laser resurfacing


Yes, I would encourage washing of the face - lots of water and just a little of a very gentle cleanser like purpose(r).  To clean the face it is more a soaking and gentle wipe then scrubbing especially in the initial days.  You should contact your surgeon to go over his preferred method of post op care and stick to his/her routine.
