I had a Fraxel Dual treatment and they did not wash my face before the treatment. The nurse began to apply the numbing cream and I asked if I should wash off my make up and she said that they would do it when they washed the cream off and they never did. I was just wondering if it could decrease the laser's effectiveness.
Fraxel Dual--Can make up interfere with the effectiveness of a Fraxel treatment?
