Burn after laser

Thank you for your question pbrar. Laser and IPL treatments can provide outstanding results for skin rejuvenation. But it is important to use the appropriate settings and carefully follow aftercare instructions to avoid complications such as burns and blisters. Ointments such as Vaseline and Aquaphor work well for wound care. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
