Fractional Co2 Laser After Rhinoplasty

How many months after open septo/rhinoplasty (also osteotemy nasal bone), is it safe to have a totall facial co2 fractional laser treatment? Would 5-6 months be enough? Could a fractional co2 laser do harm/bad for my swelling and final nose results?

Typical rhinoplasty surgery will not impair your ability to heal from a fractional co2 laser.  I would assume that 6 months is more than enough time for healing from rhinoplasty.

I feel tis can be done very soon after rhinoplasty without altering the results at all as soon as 1 month.
