Should my skin be red after laser skin treatments? Question:
During the recovery period after skin resurfacing, is it expected that my skin would be red and irritated until it heals completely?
Recovery after laser skin resurfacing depends on the depth of the treatment performed. Recovery can be anywhere from no side effects to some red skin that looks like a sun burn. Red and irritated skin does not really result. Usually, for the deeper treatment, you will look red like a sun burn but not irritated.
