Should My Skin Feel Dry After a CO2 Laser Treatment? I’m Pretty Happy with the Skin Tightening Up, but It’s Also Starting to Feel Dry. Is This a Temporary Side Effect, or Is It Something I Should Have Treated?
Shortly after treatment, in the first few weeks, it is entirely normal for the skin to feel dry and tight. We provide good emollients for the skin in these situations and the key thing is to not scratch, but keep the skin well hydrated, eat well, and get a lot of sleep or rest.
