Staying in town post laser treatment
It really depends on the depth of your treatment. From your photo, it doesn't appear that you have much textural damage ( wrinkles), so if you're just having the reds and browns treated, you won't have broken skin and could go away 2 days later. For deeper treatments, I'd suggest you stay in town and indoors so no sun exposure. Best to discuss with your treating specialist dermatologist. Don't make the mistake of not seeing a specialist- either a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. We are the only specialists in the cosmetic field. Good luck!
