Waiting Between Thermage, Accent XL and Fractional Resurfacing Treatments

How long do I need to wait between a Thermage/Accent XL procedure and a Fractional Resurfacing treatment such as Total FX?

Fraxel treatment after Thermage

I tell my patients to wait a week after Thermage for their Fraxel treatments.  Both lasers are amazing and between the collagen formation and the skin rejuvenation you should have great results. 

Time interval between Thermage and Fractional Laser treatments

Waiting 3 months or longer should be plenty of time between treatments. Always ask your treating physician for best advice.
