Healing after laser treatments
Thank you for your question bellelewis1. Healing after an ablative laser treatment on the body can take up to two weeks. For my patients I recommend using an occlusive product like Vaseline or Aquaphor several times a day to speed up the recovery time. Since these can be greasy, many people prefer to apply them on a wet skin surface. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
