The downtime is minimal after any type syringoma removal procedures. Usually you can resume your normal office activities straight after the cosmetic procedure. If you your job involves strenuous activities, it is advisable to resume work after the area has completely recovered from the procedure. This recommended is in order to minimise the risks of infections during the recovery period. Remember tht infections could lead to scarring.
The recovery period is usually a week. In general you can consider you have recovered once the scabs have fallen off by themselves and this usually happens one week after the cosmetic treatment provided that there had not been any infections.
