Lasers are shielded from electromagnetic waves, and the Fraxel does not use x-ray. Regardless of its safety, it is prudent to avoid elective cosmetic treatments during pregnancy and breast feeding as studies are not done on pregnant or lactating and nursing mothers.

Fraxel safety and breast feeding

Fraxel energy is absorbed in the skin and will not have an impact on breast feeding.  There is no reason to fear safely breast feeding immediately after a Fraxel treatment.
