Getting rhinoplasty in 6 days, open surgery. How long should I wait to get Pixel resurfacing on my face afterwards? (Photo)

My skin it's oily with ice pick scaring with minor boxcar scars. Some sun damage as well. Also what's the average amount of sessions a person will normallly get to fix these issues?

Interval before PIXEL

I would allow at least 2 weeks after surgery to allow any surrounding cheek bruising or swelling to resolve before PIXEL treatment, but that is only my opinion, so I would ask your surgeon who is doing the rhinoplasty.  Typically the acne scars require 4-5 pixel sessions to show meaningful improvement.
