How Long Should I Wait Before Getting IPL After I Had Fraxel Laser?
Doctor Answers (2)
Wait 4-6 weeks from Fraxel treatment befor having an IPL
It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for new skin cells in the basal layer to migrate to the surface following inflammation. Follow up post fraxel is paramount prior to having other laser treatments.
IPL after Fraxel
Fraxel may cause some redness after the procedure and you should be completely healed before IPL. I would like about three months, but there are individual differences. Important to check with your doctor.
