Refinishing Treatments (for Male Facial Surgery)

After a skin-smoothing treatment such as chemical peel or dermabrasion, shaving should be postponed for about 3 weeks. As these procedures involve stripping away the surface layers of the skin, patients can expect their face to remain swollen, sensitive, and pink for about several weeks after the surgery is performed. Men who are uncomfortable with the idea of using camouflage make-up are usually happy that their beard growth can help conceal the redness of the skin during post surgery.
