Post Treatment Guide CO2 Laser Treatment

It is very important to follow these guidelines to ensure the healing process is not interrupted.


  • Wash your hands thoroughly prior to contact with your face.

  • Your skin will be very sensitive to cleaning agents, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, or anything else with a fragrance or detergent for the next few days.

  • Avoid application of any topical lotion, antibiotics, shampoos, etc.

  • Do not pick, scrub, or irritate the skin, as this can lead to scarring.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise, swimming, or hot tubs until your skin is healed.

  • Avoid direct contact with animals and animal waste products.

  • Follow the additional guidelines found in your patient packet.

When Should I Expect to See Results?

The worst appearing day will be 48 hours post-op, following which you will see gradual improvement. Improvement in texture and color is generally seen at 10-14 days. Improvement in wrinkles, scars, and skin tightening may take 3 months or longer.
