Crusting after laser resurfacing
Thank you for your question bellelewis1. IPL and resurfacing treatments can be used to address sun damage on the chest. Multiple treatments are often required. The skin may be dry or crusty after a treatment. This usually resolves within two weeks. For my patients I recommend using the Avene thermal spray water and an occlusive moisturizer such as Vasline or Aquaphor several times a day to speed up the healing process. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
