Skin care following CO2 laser treatment

Hello Babybliss, thank you for your question. I would recommend discussing this with your surgeon first. For my patients, I recommend avoidance of all non-prescribed skin products until the redness disappears - especially any aloe or lotions.

I have a very strict regimen for skin care, I suggest you speak to your physician and see what they recommend.  Aloe vera isn't typically the best for skin healing.  Best, Dr. emer.
