The day of treatment patients will be red, stingy, and possibly swollen as if they have a sunburn. For several days after the treatment special care will need to be given to the treated area which includes application of ointments. Overall social downtime is approximately 2 weeks, however special care will need to be taken in regard to sun exposure and facial treatment to ensure the optimum outcome. Dr. Barber will go into greater detail about the downtime at the consultation.
