when you have laser only on certain spots should it take longer to heal than if you had your whole face lasered
Does it Take Longer to for a Full Face of Laser Treatment or Partial to Heal?

Fraxel spot laser treatments take the same amount of time to heal as a full face treatment.
Spot treatments take the same amount of time to heal as full face treatments. That is one reason it is usually recommended to treat the whole face if a similar condition occurs over the entire face. This is especially true if the face has extensive sun damage with a few darker freckles or age spots.
