This past Friday I had a laser treatment on my face. This coming Friday I have an appointment for a Fractional treatment on my face. Is it too soon?
How Long Should I Wait Between Laser Treatments?

Waiting time for laser treatment depends - not all lasers are the same
It depends on the type of laser treatment that you have. With most fractionated lasers it is recommended that patients wait at least two weeks between treatments.
If your last "laser" treatment was very mild, then it might be ok to go ahead within one week, but I would advise you to wait at least two weeks between treatments. Certainly the skin needs to heal and be near its normal condition before repeating the treatment.
If you have the Fraxel repair treatment, then usually you only need one treatment. If a second treatment is requested or required, then it is done at least 4-6 months after the first treatment.
