What is the recuperation time following the procedure? I have freckles on my face and am required to work partially outdoors during the day. Is there a time period when I cannot be in the sun?

The recuperation time is minimal, but UV protection is a must because sun exposure for the week after the procedure can lead to tracking (ie the spots when the laser hit can tan and it will look like tan squares on the face). Additionally, the spots (or ones just like them) will come back with more sun exposure. Many people who are outdoors a lot will wait til the cooler months to get their treatment, when the sun isn't as strong, and I would recommend a floppy hat and really good sunscreen for you on a daily basis.
