Dr. Szerman’s Guide: Master Post-CO2 Laser Care for Faster Healing & Avoid Mistakes!

Hi everyone, Dr. Szerman here!

Today, I’ll share some essential post-CO2 laser care tips to ensure a smooth recovery and avoid common mistakes.

Hydration is Key:

  • Skip washing your face with water for 8 hours after treatment. Water can irritate sensitive skin.
  • Apply a healing cream with ceramides and paraffin every 2-3 hours (8 times a day) to create a protective layer and prevent moisture loss.
  • Regular moisturizers aren’t enough – these special creams helps your skin heal faster and reduces pain.

Sunscreen and Sensitive Skin:

  • Avoid scheduling appointments right after your procedure to minimize irritation.
  • Skip sunscreen for the first 2 days – even sunscreen can irritate your skin CO2 Laser Care.
  • Test a small amount of sunscreen on your face before applying it more broadly. Discontinue if it irritates.

Medication and Pain Management:

  • Take an antiviral medication for 7 days starting 1 day before your treatment to prevent herpes outbreaks.
  • I typically prescribe an analgesic 1-2 hours before and 4-6 hours after treatment for pain relief.

Soothing Techniques:

  • After 8 hours, use a cold gauze pad with saline solution or chamomile tea to soothe the skin.
  • Avoid hot environments – opt for air-conditioned or well-ventilated areas.

Chemical Exfoliants:

CO2 Laser Care
  • Stop using acids like hydroquinone or retinoic acid 3 days before your treatment.
  • Wait an additional 3-5 days after your skin heals completely before resuming these products.

Boost Your Results (Optional):

  • Consider using a facial mask containing beta-glucan and collagen after treatment. This can significantly improve results and speed up healing.


  • Follow your doctor’s specific instructions closely.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask questions – we’re here to help!

By following these tips, you can ensure a comfortable and successful recovery after your CO2 Laser Care treatment.
