How long should I wait before having a Facial or lightly Ablative Laser after my facelift?
A lightly ablative laser can be performed at the time of the facelift. If the facelift was completed without a laser then I would recommend waiting 2-4 weeks (for the swelling to resolve), but much depends on the techniques used during the facelift, your healing progress and what "lightly" means.
I hope this helps.
