Fraxel and saliva glands
Fraxel laser cannot penetrate deeply enough to affect the saliva glands. It is just a coincidence. Please see your physician to determine the cause.
Fraxel would not interfere with salivary glands
Fraxel Laser Cannot Cause Salivary Gland Damage
Just a coincidence. Fraxel penetrates at maximum only 1.6 millimeters into the skin, far too superficial to affect the salivary glands. Hope things are better. Good luck and be well.
