Recovering from a Laser Treatment

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Chicago ILIf you love skincare then you probably have a good amount of products to help you target your concerns. Eye cream, wrinkle cream, and acids can all help fight signs of premature aging. But what do you do when you need something a little extra?

Laser resurfacing treatments can help erase scars, hyperpigmentation, and deep wrinkles that can’t be helped with products. We offer a few different laser treatments, so you can find the best one suited to you. Keep reading to learn how to treat your skin after you’ve gotten one of our deeper resurfacing laser treatments, such as the CONTOUR TRL treatment.


Listening to your skin and babying it is important after a laser treatment. Following instructions after your treatment is key to getting the best results. That being said, keeping your skin moisturized is very important. Bring a moisturizer with you to work to make sure your skin is properly protected. You may even want to add an occlusive moisturizer to the mix for a few days as your skin heals. Ask us if this is a good option for you.

Avoid Makeup

Going without foundation for a couple days can help your skin recover from a deep laser resurfacing treatment better. If you can’t go without makeup, then opt for a light mineral makeup. Ask us about timing regarding when you can wear foundation and other skin makeup.

Don’t Pick

We recommend leaving your skin alone and letting it heal as it will. Pushing too hard on the skin, scrubbing, peeling, or picking at the skin can leave you with sub-part results. If you are the type to pick, try to find something to keep your hands busy for the first few days while you heal.

Wear Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen after a CONTOUR TRL treatment will help you have the best results. Preventing signs of premature aging is important, as this is what the laser treatment is designed to treat in the first place. Following our after-care instructions are important and will keep your skin looking beautiful!
