Avoid sun: Avoid sun exposure, stay indoors. Apply lots of moisturizer (ie: Aquaphor, Vaseline, Cetaphil or CeraVe lotion or cream) until skin completely healed. Aquaphor can cause acne but can be soothing for raw or cracked or burned skin. Avoid makeup or sunscreen until skin completely healed. Use SPF 30 or higher with zinc oxide, hat, sunglasses. Start bleaching cream after skin completely healed.

Healing time: Ablative procedures remove a layer of skin allowing new skin to grow in its place and involves healing time. This can be done via laser, chemical acid, or mechanical dermabrasion. Nonablative procedures do not remove the skin and do not involve downtime or healing time. These procedures include lasers, microdermabrasion and other procedures which are more gentle on the skin.
