I had a CO2 laser done 4 weeks ago. I am really trying to figure out how to get rid of the waxy feeling?

I hate this waxy feeling that all of a sudden appeared on my face after a co2. It came around 2.5 weeks post. Can I get rid of this feeling and look...I can't stand this feeling and I can't wear any makeup because it makes it worse...

I would suggest seeing a Medical Esthetician who is trained in treating skin after a CO2 treatment.

Here at our office our medical esthetician always give our patients a post skin care treatment which

helps exfoliate the dry skin. 

Good luck to you.

Improving Skin after Co2--try fraxel, microneedling/prp, radiofrequency, sculptra

Skin quality can be improved with fraxel lasers, microneedling/prp and radiofrequency treatments. I also recommend Sculptra to rebuild collagen. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
