Is there any downtime following an CO2 fractional laser treatment?

The CO2 laser is an ablative treatment, which means along with sending energy below the skin to stimulate collagen production, it removes the top layers of old, dead skin cells. Following a CO2 laser treatment, your skin will feel sunburnt, and for up to a week, it will peel. After about a week, your skin will be pink, but you can start wearing makeup. Although you can physically return to normal activities in a day or two, plan to give yourself at least a week before going out in public. Within two weeks, you should be back to your regular life, but you will need to stay out of the sun for at least a month following treatment.
