Getting through a week after DOT CO2 laser
Complications will include pinpoint bleeding and burning pain which both resolve quickly after the procedure. After an aggressive treatment with the DOT fractionated CO2 laser, you should expect to be beet red for 5 days, then light red/pink for another week. You will keep some pink color to your skin during collagen remodeling, which takes place for a few months afterwards.
My patients wear breathable makeup on day 6 or 7 followed by their own makeup at day 12-14. Sunscreen is essential for 4-6 weeks after treatment for great results.
