Exercise after Active FX laser resurfacing
After an Active FX treatment, I usually recommend waiting two weeks before resuming exercise. At the very least, a patient should wait until after peeling has occurred, which is usually around a week.
Exercise after Active FX
Thanks for the question.
I would consult with your physician regarding activity restrictions. For my patients, following an Active FX, I allow them to return to regular activity at around the 2 week mark once the skin is fully re-epithelialized and well healed.
