I had a "mini" facelift a little over two months ago and am wondering if it is safe to now have an IPL Photofacial or a chemical peel.

How soon can I have a photofacial following a facelift?
1-2 weeks following surgery is a perfectly acceptable amount of time to wait before having a photofacial. Good luck!
Mini facelift and IPL
It is likely safe to proceed. Many surgeons will do this at the same time as the surgical procedure.
How Soon After Facelift or Mini Facelift is It Safe to Have an IPL Photofacial for Rosacea?
It would be adviseable to wait up to 1 month before having an IPL after a traditional Face Lift or Minimal Incision Face Lift. The less tissue dissection versions, 2 weeks and 4 weeks for the more aggressive Face Lifts.

IPL Photofacial for Rosacea after Facelift
It was not necessary to wait 2 months after your mini-facelift to have an IPL Photofacial, so you can have the treatment whenever convenient.
