How Long Does CO2 Laser Resurfacing Take To Heal?

By December 14, 2023 No Comments

CO2 laser resurfacing is an outstanding procedure that can completely revitalize your face. CO2 laser resurfacing delves into the deeper layers of tissue to create and stimulate collagen and bring vibrancy to the skin. While CO2 laser resurfacing is not a surgery, it is an in-depth process that takes time to heal. So, how long does CO2 laser resurfacing take to heal? 

After your CO2 laser resurfaces, you must take some downtime for a few days to promote correct healing. The treatment area will be immediately bandaged, and you will be instructed to wash your face multiple times a day. Keeping out of direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen is essential to keep the delicate skin safe while it heals. You should take a week of downtime to allow the face to recover.  

It can take a few weeks to a month for the redness to completely disappear and the skin to go back to normal. During this time, you should avoid harsh products or heavy makeup.  At Seattle Plastic Surgery, Dr. Santos can help you find the right products and skincare routines to help your face heal so you can enjoy your rejuvenated skin.
