Is Fraxel Laser Safe for Someone with Mitral Valve Regurgitation?

Fraxel is Okay in Patients with Mitral Valve Regurgitation


Hi Tracie,

You should probably take prophylactic antibiotics before your treatment, and definitely call your internist and/or your cardiologist to discuss your individual situation to get their clearance for the procedure.  Good luck and be well.
