No: You have to give it time, apply physician directed skin moisturizers. Adding another laser treatment to a healing area will lengthen the recovery time. I usually reccomend a fractional co2 laser for resurfacing as it significantly decreases the recovery time. Allow your skin to heal fully before undergoing another treatment.
