Fractional treatment: Erbium and CO2 are very different. Which treatment did you have and why? I hope you are not on Isotretinoin while you got an ablative treatment; otherwise, it would potentially be disastrous. It should not take more than 3 weeks to complete re-epithelialization after a fractional treatment.
