How soon after fillers can you have a laser facial?

How soon after injection of fillers can laser skin resurfacing be performed?

Thank you for sharing your question. There is no need to wait for laser skin resurfacing following injection of fillers. Often the combination of both procedures are performed at the same time.  Make sure your doctor is experienced with both treatments. Good luck, 

Laser and Fillers

Laser resurfacing and fillers can be done on the same day! Typically i advise my patients to have fillers first as to numb the skin slightly prior to laser. Our fillers, such as Juvederm, contain a numbing agent to allow a more comfortable experience. Be sure to always consult with a board certified plastic surgeon

Same day.

Thanks for this question. Lasers and fillers can be combined and performed the same day. Best wishes, Dr. ALDO

Lasers and Fillers

Lasers will not affect the fillers and can be done even on the same day.  I recommend getting a formal consultation with a laser expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Lasers after facial fillers

You can have lasers the same day as fillers. Lasers only penetrate about 1.5mm. Most fillers are placed deeper than this, particularly if placed by cannulas. However, Infini (and some other RF) gets deep enough to affect fillers that are placed in the dermis. If the fillers are placed deeper than the dermis, Infini is fine to use.

These are often done in the same visit.

Anything that is labeled a "laser facial" is probably mild enough to permit fillers and botox at the same visit.  An example of this type of treatment would be service with Clear + Brilliant by Solta.  Ask your physician injector their opinion.  Remember, medical spas were there are no physicians doing a good faith examination are illegal in the State of California.  Contact the California Medical Board regarding their rules for medical spas.
