You should be able to be successfully treated approximately 6 weeks after your rhinoplasty. Any specific concerns are best addressed by discussion with your rhinoplasty surgeon, who can make you aware of any problems they might see with you undergoing the Fraxel treatment.

Fraxel Restore or Fraxel Repair on a nose after a nose job

Fraxel Restore or Repair can be done probably three to six months after rhinoplasty to allow for less swelling and improved circulation to the skin of the nose. At times, depending on the extent of the surgery, your plastic surgeon may allow earlier resurfacing and if he or she does not do the procedure, let them communicate with the resurfacing doctor.
