Confused about when to evaluate/seek further treatment after Laser Resurfacing? Having undergone ablative/non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing four weeks ago I'm wondering when is the best time decide whether I should undergo further treatments to further improve my acne scars? Is it best to wait 6 months? or is there an advantage to having some type of treatment before then?
How Long Should I Wait Between Laser Resurfacing Treatments?
Doctor Answers (1)
Wait six months after ablative fractional laser before more treatment
There is continued improvement for six months in collagen build-up after fractional ablative laser resurfacing so you should give your skin a chance to benefit from the procedure before having more done.
