Safety of laser resurfacing for rheumatoud arthritis patients

Obviously, you should consult with your rheumatologist, making sure your rheumatoid arthritis or autoimmune condition is in remission. As it is, our body produces an equivalent of 5mg prednisone daily. You should be getting prophylactic oral antibiotics and antiviral anyhow as part of your laser resurfacing using Mixto, Active Fx, Fraxel Repair, etc.
