A question re a CO2 laser and how to manage the recovery.
Here’s what to remember about CO2 lasers. Only do a CO2 laser with an office that gives you clear and written pre and post care instructions and who sees you in person at about Day #5 after your CO2 laser to make sure you are healing well. All of the questions you are asking are EXCELLENT……….but they all should have been answered by your doctor in your written materials and your in-person post procedure visit. This is what distinquishes between good care and marginal care.
Please, please call your doctor and have her/him answer these questions and see you in person. It’s impossible to give you good care without seeing you. I completely understand your frustration and your doctor needs to help you!
Here’s more on lasers and healing.
I hope you can get in soon! Dr. I
