It's important that you continue to stay out of the sun for the next few weeks. I would aggressively apply sunscreen (30+ SPF, broadspectrum) before leaving your home and reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours.
The redness and sandpaper likely feeling of the skin are normal after the treatment. The recovery time depends on the treatment settings used but by about 7-10 days, most patients report having basically recovered although they often note a pink color to the skin and sensitivity to certain topical skincare products for a few weeks after this point.
