SAD Lamps: Seasonal affective disorder (sad) light therapy mimics outdoor light. The devices are designed to filter out uv light but the amount of uv light emitted is variable. I would not recommend using the sad lamp after a co2 laser resurfacing until the doctor that did your treatment says it is ok !
