I have an elevated ANA level but with no diagnosis of an autoimmune disease. Am I still a candidate for Fraxel laser treatments?
Fraxel Laser Advisable Despite Elevated ANA Level?

Check with your physician
If the level of the positivity of the ANA is very high then possibly there might be a slightly greater chance of poor healing. If you take prednisone or other corticosteroids for the ANA (which I doubt as you stated you have no diagnosis) then that could interfere with healing and increase risk of post laser infection.
