I had a fractional CO2 laser treatment under eyes two weeks ago. I like the results, but am thinking I will need a bit more tightening. How long must I wait before repeating procedure on a lighter setting? Thank you!

Repeat Fractional Laser Treatment
There is no absolute answer to your question. Immediately following treatment, your skin will look great due to slight swelling. As the swelling subsides, it may appear that wrinkles or laxity reappear. Then as months go by, the appearance will improve as new collagen is laid down.
Now, to answer your question - I would advise waiting at least several months.
