What About Downtime?
Downtime is variable. Mild treatments may include a couple of days’ social downtime (where you’ll be red with possible slight swelling). More aggressive treatments mean more downtime. You will not be restricted from activity, but the redness and mild crusting will probably be obvious enough you will wish to stay home – or refrain from social activities.
Everyone heals differently and the level of treatment will determine to a great degree your expected downtime. Plan on 4 to 5 days social downtime with mid-level treatments or about a week for aggressive treatments with the highest density level of energy.
“Downtime” post-treatment effects include redness, some swelling, mild crusts, and some itching as the skin heals.
