Can Bleaching Cream Be Used Up Until the Day of Fraxel Dual?
Doctor Answers (1)
Hydroquinone use before Fraxel treatment
I recommend using hydroquinone (prescription-strength bleaching cream) up until the day of a Fraxel treatment unless the cream is irritating the skin. If you find some irritation with the use of hydroquinone, then discontinue a few days prior to treatment. You may resume using hydroquinone two weeks after your Fraxel treatment.
