Laser and after care instructions

Thank you for posting your photos  I always tell patients not to go in the sun after having laser for sun spots for at least a few weeks.  Sun block alone if it is very sunny cannot protect your skin if you had a great deal of laser done for the sun spots.  It doesn't look as if you had Fraxel laser performed.  If you have any after care questions you should contact the physician who treated you with this procedure.
