How Much Time Between Photofacial, Chemical Peel and Microderm Treatments For Asian Skin?
Doctor Answers (1)
Time between procedures
Photofacials and microderms can be done the same day or a few days apart, with about 3-4 weeks in between Photofacials. Adding chemical peels into the mix depends largely on the type of peel and the depth of it's penetration. Some chemical peels do not react well with IPL lasers and can make you photo sensitive. For the best answer on this, consult your providing office and have them help you with the timing, as they will know exactly what topicals they are using and how they should interact together.
