Safe to Use Affirm Co2 Fractional a Second Time on Face?

I had Affirm co2 laser done to my entire face (excluding eye area) in April this year. I was told they could not do my eye area. Since then, the clinic has gotten a new Affirm Co2 laser machine which can laser the eye area. I'd like to have my eye area done to help with wrinkles & tightening. The doctor says to get an all over even look to my face he would want to target my eye area aggresively, and again laser my face ...but on a lower setting. Is this safe to laser my face again so soon?

Affirm CO2 laser second time?

Absolutely yes, it is safe to have another fractional CO2 laser treatment on your face.  I do about 200 treatments a year, and about 25% are second treatments.  I've even done a third treatment on a patient with acne scarring to try to get really good results.  I use it on eyelids also with very good results and no problems in many cases.  Hope that helps!
