Why do doctors tell you to stay out of the sun after you've had your face lasered?

In brief: Adding injury

Laser treatments precisely pulse intense light to areas of wrinkles and other skin imperfections.
You don't want to blast the treated area with more sun exposure afterwards because your skin is now more sensitive to light -- at least until healing occurs.
