Post Pro Fractional - Oozing - Is It Normal?
Pro Fractional Therapy Aftercare
Thank you for your question a.ish. The Profractional Therapy treatment is outstanding for resurfacing the skin. Crusting and oozing are normal for the first week after a treatment. I have my patients use Avene thermal water and the Elta MD Intense moisturizer. Alternatively Vaseline and Aquaphor work well but some people find them a little greasy. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Recovery time depends on how aggressive the treatment was. After profractional, make sure that the skin is moisturized. Also to keep any spots that are light pink out of the sun. There's a risk of post- inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which means the spot turns dark brown. It's treatable but definitely better to avoid the sun. If the oozing alarms you then call the office so you can schedule a follow up appointment. It's best to see in -person, how the skin looks rather than a picture.

Yes, serum can ooze to the surface after an aggressive profractional laser treatment.
For specific questions like this and about your recovery in general, it is best to speak directly with your doctor or doctor’s representative – such as his or her nurse, or the physician on call for the practice. The internet is not the best venue for post procedure managment.
You will likely get many differing opinions from members of the RealSelf Community, but they have not physically seen or examined you. Nobody should know you or your unique set of circumstances better than your doctor.
If you feel you are not being listened to or you are doubting your doctor’s recommendations, then it is certainly within your rights to seek a second opinion and get the advice from another board certified physician. This should be done through an in-person consultation with a thorough evaluation, including a review of your history, review of all prior treatment and with a physical examination.
Obviously, if you think that you are having a medical emergency or other serious problem, you should call 911 and/or go to your nearest emergency room.
Best Wishes and Good Luck!
