In brief: Follow instructions

Your doctor will tell you exactly which products you need to use after the procedure and how often to apply them. Avoid picking and touching your face.
Do not stare in the mirror and scratch. Avoid alchol, wine, beer, liquor, vit e, fish oil, aspirin, blood thinners, ibuprofen, naprosyn, (naproxen) and steroids since they cause bruising and bleeding. Avoid the sun, outdoors, wear sunblock, & use a hat.

In brief: Quicker recovery

Happens with: 1) fractional treatments, rather than full-field treatments 2) more superficial treatments, rather than deeper treatments 3) facial resurfacing, rather than off-the-face treatments 4) non-ablative treatments rather than ablative ones.
