Side Effects of the Procedure

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to a moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to the touch on the area treated. The skin’s redness will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment. Within 24 hours, the surface of the skin will typically appear and feel more normal. After 3 days, the skin is often healed, and your normal appearance is fully restored. For the first 3 days, it is important to avoid sun exposure and sweaty activities, such as vigorous exercises.
