Aftercare for Laser treatment


What is the aftercare of a laser treatment, I had it couple of weeks ago, when it was a little painful and the burnt smell at the clinic, the staff told me DONT wipe with your towel, and DO put the vit C lotion on the wound and also I am eating as healthy for my skin.

what kind of laser treatment?

After a quick google I came up with the following from this website:

I have no idea what kind of laser treatment you had, but this covered for all laser treatments, and the site goes into detail for other kinds.

For all laser treatments:

The first two days after treatment, be extra careful to prevent injury to the treated area. Following treatment, do not shave for at least 24 hours or wait until any indication of irritation is gone.
During or between treatment, apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30. Avoid sun tanning and tanning beds until all redness and discoloration vanishes. (and probably not a good idea in general).
For 24 hours following treatment or while the treated area is still irritated, do not perform any strenuous exercise. Also, avoid hot tubs, and spas.
If you notice blistering or breakage to the treated area, apply
Aquaphor/Vaseline ointment and call us. To further protect the area, keep it covered.
To alleviate any temporary discomfort, swelling or redness, apply cold packs. You may also take Tylenol. If there is an irritated or raised itchy rash, Benadryl taken orally may help.
As long as the skin is not broken, you may wear makeup. However, apply delicately and avoid excessive rubbing, as it can increase irritation and the possibility of scarring.
