I had a large sunspot treated with fraxel 3 weeks ago.

Fraxel treatment recovery
Healing time after Fraxel
Most patients complete this process 5 – 7 days after a treatment on the face. (Off-face areas, such as hands/arms, where healing is slower, the process may take up to 2 weeks.)
Once the sloughing is complete, you may notice some pinkness over the next few weeks. Most redness resolves during the first week after treatment, but a rosy “glow” can remain for several weeks especially on body area.
I'd encourage you to follow up with your provider prior to your next treatment.
Fraxel for sun spots
I would keep your appointment and have your physician evaluate you prior to your next laser.
