Hi FUR_IS_4_ANIMALS. Getting unprotected sun exposure 2 weeks after laser treatment might lead to more swelling, redness, inflammation etc. immediately afterwards. Pigmentation that comes months after the CO2 is from new unprotected sun exposure, independent of the previous CO2 treatment. To get the longest lasting benefit of your skin resurfacing, you need ongoing protection and maintenance skin care. Your PS can guide you on how to do that. Best wishes,
