Do ProFractional lasers breakdown fillers? I am getting ready to have a laser treatment in one week and I am wondering if I should wait to do filler?
Do Lasers Cause Filler to Degrade Faster?

Laser and Fillers - Which first?
We perform the laser treatment first regardless if it is an ablative procedure or a non-ablative laser treatment. Most manufacturers of filler products have suggested that heat (ex: tanning booths, excessive UV exposure, lasers) can degrade the product much quicker...not good if you were the one that just invested in a syringe of product. We recommend doing the filler procedure 2 weeks after an ablative procedure (if completely healed). Non-ablative (no downtime) lasers usually may be done before the injection procedure or one week after the filler placement.
