After laser treatment, a short time You can start applying the mask. Compared with other non-invasive lasers, picosecond lasers have higher power. Although there will be no visible damage to the skin surface, the effect on the dermis will cause damage to the skin barrier. You can wash your face a few days after the laser. First of all, you need to determine if the inflammation has subsided a few days later. If everything goes well, you can wash your face in about a week. However, due to individual differences, some people have more obvious inflammation, and the redness and swelling subsided more slowly, and it may take a little longer, and some people will not have obvious swelling until 10 days later. Some people may wash their face earlier because they are not very sensitive, even in 4 or 5 days. Regardless of the situation, there is no absolute requirement for washing or not washing your face. If there is a certain degree of contamination on the face, no matter what the situation is, you need to use some disinfection drugs to clean, such as normal saline or iodophor for cleaning, but it is not much different from washing your face. Gentle pulse light freckle removal is the kind of condition without scabs. Apply a facial mask on the same day to strengthen hydrating work. If it is the kind of strong laser or the kind with crusts, it is recommended to wait until the crusts are gone before applying the mask.
