Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment can have a healing time between 4 days to 1week.  Immediately post Smartskin laser, the skin will have areas of pinpoint bleeding which dissipates after several hours.  It is important to keep the skin very moist with a topical emoliant and use aquaphor at night.  On the first morning, the face will be swollen, especially around the eyes.  Each day there after improvements will be visualized.  On day 5, patients can return to wearing makeup, and although there is some redness, this will dissipate over the next week.  Here are some healing day photos at 1 day post laser, 2 days and 1 week post laser.
