Ointment: It sounds like you may have some mild burns from the hair removal laser. Any cracks or blisters should be covered with antibiotic ointment and kept clean. Avoid any sun exposure until you are cleared by your treating physician to reduce any damage. The face usually recovers very quickly from this type of treatment.
