Fraxel Restore Treatment for Pimples?

If I have a pimple, one pimple, not big and not painful at all, that unfortunately appears on the day of a fraxel restore treatment, will I be able to do the fraxel treatment?

Fraxel restore should be fine with a single pimple. however, you should be on a regimen for acne flares and longterm management by your dermatologist

You can have Fraxel with a pimple.  Hopefully, your treatment is with a dermatologist who can also treat your pimple.

As infections are extremely rare with the Restore system, you should be fine to proceed with your treatment.  Best wishes

Yes, there should not be a problem with having a Fraxel treatment if you have a pimple on the day of your treatment.

Thank you for your question. Fraxel treatment or any laser treatment should be avoided on an area where there's an active acne lesion or open skin to prevent further injury and spreading of any infection.  I would recommend being treated under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist for safest and best treatment option. I hope this helps.
