Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes it can still go on even after 2 weeks.

The behavior of individual skin to pixar laser is not predictable.

Some individuals may shed more than usual. But it does not make the procedure a failure.

You should see gradual improvement over next 2 weeks.

You can apply topical hydrocortisone ointment twice daily to slow own the peeling.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
