Is Fraxel Laser Safe for Someone with Mitral Valve Regurgitation?

Doctor Answers 1

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.
