Fraxel Repair Safety for Patients with Immune Deficiency?
Doctor Answers (1)
I would not recommend Fraxel re:pair in immunodeficiency patient
There are 2 issues I'd be concerned about with the Fraxel re:pair in a patient with an immune deficiency. First is there will be a potential problem with healing. The second would be the risk of infection. I'd would defer to the Fraxel re:store or other non ablative laser resurfacing.
