You can expect your skin to be red, textured, and possibly swell. After the treatment-something similar to a sunburn with a brownish tint to the skin as the day goes on. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve within a few days. Total healing time is usually 5-7 days, but you should be prepared for the full 7 days.
