Can I Do Fraxel Laser if I Have Bioalcamid Filler in my Face?

Fraxel Laser

Typically, this is not an issue, but you should first have an evaluation with your Board Certified Dermatologist and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  I like patients to wait until the filler is due to be replaced so I can do a more accurate evaluation of how much volume loss there vs. laxity and wrinkles.

Fractionated laser procedures and fillers

BioAlcamid is a permanent filler injected in the deep tissues and should not cause a problem with the erbium glass fractionated devices such as Fraxel Restore. I would avoid the CO2 device (Fraxel Repair) with BioAlcamid injections.
