Thanks for your query. Just for few days for the skin to get normalized. Stay hydrated, protect it from sun and keep yourself moisturized and take proper consultation with your treating physician before commencing for the next treatment. Hope it helps.

Hello, and thanks for your question. Without a photo, it's difficult to recommend a specific treatment plan. I recommend following up with your dermatologist. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
