If the redness and peeling on the face after the procedure come into contact with the sun, there is a risk of pigment, that is, the formation of spots on the face. It is not enough to use sunscreen in the days after the procedure, so we recommend that patients do not go out for 3-5 days after the procedure. While dark-skinned people are more affected by conditions such as regional pigmentation or pigment loss, light-skinned people are the more fortunate group in this treatment.
