After the treatment

There is always an erythema and a feeling of warmth. A slight oedema, as well as a temporary bleaching are visible around the treated area. The appearance of small crust from the second day is frequent. These small crusts result from the coagulation of the epidermal proteins and disappear within a few days without leaving a scar. Do not try to remove them.
Temporary hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation is sometimes observed during the weeks following rosacea treatment.
It is important that the treated area is not exposed to the sun in the month following the treatment.
