After you get a photofacial, how long do you need to wait if you also want to get microdermabrasion or a chemical peel? What is the recommended series (and time in between) of combining photofacials and microdermabrasion? Thanks.
Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peels After a Photofacial

Microderm After Photofacial
I often combine microdermabrasion and photofacials. Sometimes we pre-treat with a microderm immediately before a photofacial to treat difficult areas; or we separate them by about a week. I'd don't recommend chemical peels, unless directly overseen by the office performing your photofacials, as many are light and photo-sensitive and can cause problems.
