is used as a barrier to keep the air away from your skin while you grow new

can be used.
How long is the
healing process varies from patient to patient but will generally take from
two to four days. The procedure can be performed on Thursday or Friday and
you can return to work the following Monday. Immediately following the procedure
you will feel as if you have a bad sunburn. You will have minor sloughing
and itchiness the following day. By day two, redness will begin to fade and
by day three any redness can be easily covered by makeup.
