I am concerned about line like indentations on my face 8 days after co2 laser. Will they go away? (photo)

I am post co2 laser 8 days. My cheek has gone from bleeding the 1st day to brown stripes to the indentations in the pic. I am worried about the indentations. I am co thinking cold water/vinegar soaks and aquaphor. Performed by a plastic surgeon. Will dents go away?

I suggest speaking to your physician, you need to be on the appropriate skin care at this time to prevent any scarring or hyperpigmentation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
