Recovery time after acne treatments
Your recovery time will vary based on the treatment delivered:
- Recovery time after Morpheus8 treatments: One of the advantages of a Morpheus8 treatment is the recovery time is minimal. Most people just return to their usual activities the day after the treatment. Your skin may be red or slightly inflamed for about a week or have minor swelling, but these side effects are negligible. Your skin will continue to heal for several weeks, continuing to improve in texture, tone, and quality.
- Recovery time after microneedling: Microneedling does not involve a long recovery time and typically takes only one day, although it could be a little longer. Avoid sun exposure, always wear sunscreen if you need to go out, and you can apply makeup after the tiny micro-injuries heal, typically within 24 hours.
- Recovery time after Tetra CO2 Laser: The Tetra CO2 laser system has revolutionized skin resurfacing. The device does not heat the surrounding tissues and does not require a long recovery time. Your skin could appear reddened for a day or two, like a mild sunburn. This device is a top-performer for acne scars, and the treatment comes with no downtime – just smoother, healthier, more evenly toned skin.
