How much time off work should I take after TCA Cross?

I have an outdoor job and am worried about pigmentation issues. At the moment I have 1 week off. Do you think that will be enough time for the scab to fall off and then can apply SPF as normal

Its getting into winter now which is why I waited but I normally spend 9-10 hours a day outside

depends on how deep your scars are. MY first session my scabs didn't come off until the 15th day.

The preceding sessions 6-7 days I was scab free, since it became less deep.

@cookingENG Wear a big brimmed hat, sunglasses, and a extra high SPF. You can apply SPF over treatment if it's a physical one and your gentle. Time to heal is different for everyone. You will have redness for a few weeks.
