Dos and Don’ts After Laser Skin Care

Dos and Don’ts After Laser Skin Care

Posted: March 31, 2016

Bonakdar Aesthetics offers our Orange County and Corona Del Mar patients an array of laser skin care options that can help with anything from sun damage to sagging skin.  These state-of-the-art services are incredibly popular because they provide patients with painless, beautiful results without the need for scalpels, sutures or downtime.

Dr. Monica Bonakdar offers a wide range of high-tech cosmetic solutions, such as Fraxel and CO2 lasers, for treating loose, wrinkled and discolored skin. Laser skin care treatment is a comfortable and effective alternative to invasive surgery, and the results are both immediate and progressive.

Dr. Bonakdar will guide you through every stage of your laser skin rejuvenation process, from your initial consultation to your cosmetic procedure and post-treatment care. With nearly twenty years of experience, you can be sure you are getting expert care and superior results.

Every patient is different. While Dr. Bonakdar will provide specific post-treatment care instructions based on your unique situation, here are some common Dos and Don’ts to consider following your laser skin care treatment:


  • Apply a cool pack to the treated site as needed during the first day or two following treatment.
  • Clean the treated area two to five times a day with saline or other solution recommended by Dr. Bonakdar.
  • Apply skin care treatments and moisturizers recommended by Dr. Bonakdar to assist your healing process.
  • Use physical sunscreen that is formulated for sensitive, rejuvenating skin.
  • Elevate your head with an extra pillow at night.
  • Stop smoking.  Smoking complicates the healing process.


  • Pick at skin. Picking at skin or scabs can cause scarring. Scabs should be treated with a lubricating cream until they come off naturally.
  • Use Retin-A, Benzyl Peroxide or glycolic acid for several weeks. Dr. Bonakdar will give detailed instructions on how to best care for your skin throughout your recovery.
  • Tan or get chemical peels throughout the treatment series.
  • Get fillers or other injectables within two weeks before or after your treatment.
  • Cause trauma to the treated area. This may mean avoiding hot baths, massages or vigorous exercise for the first few days following treatment.
  • Fail to closely follow all of Dr. Bonakdar’s instructions for a successful recovery.
