Apr 02, 19 How Do I Take Care Of My Skin After Laser?

If you are searching into getting any laser treatments done, typically the best time of year to do one is during wintertime. The skin is generally less exposed to the sun, which can easily undo what a laser just fixed.

Skincare after laser resurfacing please note that the sun can still do damage to your skin in the winter months, but people are less likely to spend time in the sun unprotected. Some patients are experienced slight redness, swelling, or stinging similar to sunburn after laser skin treatments.
