How Soon After Profractional Laser Can I Begin Using AHA Products? (photo)

Doctor Answers 2

3-4 weeks. Give it time.

It really depends on several factors, including how quickly your skin heals, the depth of laser, and your skin sensitivities. As a guide, 3-4 weeks. I would use every second night, and increase as tolerated.

Using products after ProFractional

Everyone is different, but I usually tell my patients to wait until they feel like their skin is "back to normal" until they restart their products.  Using a mild moisturizer or emollient helps to speed healing.
