Generally, for such a procedure, time is an important factor. Normal skin treatment procedures take 3-10 days to heal but the bigger the treatment area, the longer the recovery time. Sometimes, the healing period can take up to three weeks to complete. It is recommended to use ice packs on the treated area to reduce any swelling or rise of slight peeling.
Also, a patient would need to adjust their daily skin care routine in accordance with the procedure. It is recommended to treat the area two to five times per day, using a vinegar-based or saline solution. Using a moisturiser daily does help in the healing process. Get the correct information from the doctor about which solution works best for your individual skin.
Also, it is important to apply new dressings to ensure the skin stays clean.
