I received a CO2 laser as a CosmetiCare Ambassador. One of the best cosmetic procedures that I did at CosmetiCare last year was to have a CO2 laser during my liposuction surgery. My skin has never been brighter, and it took years off my age.

Your Skin is Going to Shed

One of the things that surprised me the most about the recovery was how much of my skin peeled. A couple of days following the surgery, my skin turned a dark brown. Then it started to peel. Almost like a snake. It was a little messy and took about 1-2 days for the peeling to stop.

You’re Going to Need to Hydrate Your Skin

The most important thing to do after a CO2 laser is to use high-quality skincare products. Properly caring for your skin is key. I purchased a laser skincare kit from CosmetiCare before my laser. Alastin Skincare Procedure Enhancement System is the product that I recommend purchasing. The kit had everything that I needed to care for my skin following the procedure. You’ll want to care for your skin twice a day for weeks, and months following the procedure.

The Sun is Not Your Friend

It is essential for the first couple of weeks following the laser that you don’t go in the sun. I didn’t leave the house at all for one week. Then, when I did leave the house, I covered up. I would wear a lot of sunscreen. Also, I would wear a hat, sunglasses and a scarf.
