You should not return to normal activities or work for at least 24 hours (preferably 48 hours) after undergoing the treatment. You will need to rest for one day to take care of the healed area. With the lighter fractional CO2 treatments, you will need three to five days of downtime.
After going through the treatment you may feel your skin to be sunburned during the first 24 to 48 hours. You should use ice packs and moisturising creams for 5 to 10 minutes every hour during the first 5 or 6 hours after the treatment. (Which we provide the after care cream for you). During first 3-6 days your skin will be pink and will peel between day 2-7. However, this time period may vary based on the depth of your treatment. After one week of treatment you can apply make up to cover the spots. However, slight bruises may develop on your skin which may take about 2 weeks to heal.
