Hello . Thank you for sharing your pictures . The reaction from the photo is normal after Profractional treatment . It is recommended to apply cold compressed every 1-2 hrs , 24 hrs post treatment , to help with the swelling and redness . The pimples are normal. The reactions will take up to 5 days to resolve.
Continue with the aquaphore ointment . Hope you feel better .

Thank you for your question.
Everything you are describing is completely normal and expected. The little white bumps are just a reaction to the open skin and Aquaphor blocking the pores, you may develop more as you continue to heal. You can use cold compresses to help soothe and decrease the swelling. I would continue to wash your face and reapply the ointment as needed throughout the day as you feel dry and the skin feels tight. Good luck with healing.
