Photofacials and Proactiv
It is safe to have photofacials with intense pulsed light while using Proactiv. Stop the Proactiv the day before your photofacial and resume it 2 days afterwards, or wait longer if you have any crusting.
Thank you for your question.
You should have no problem getting a Photofacial while on Proactiv. There is nothing in their solution that should make you more sensitive to the procedure, or, make the procedure less effective. In fact, Photofacials may have a beneficial effect on acne that may enhance the results that you are getting from Proactiv.
Hope this helps!
