Breakout After Threading Related to Fraxel Laser?

I had Fraxel Laser done about four months ago. For some reason, I find that every time I get my eyebrows or upper lip threaded, I break out in tiny red pimples. This never happened before I had the Fraxel done. Are they related?

Fraxel Laser, Break outs After Threading

Hi Clauds,

Sounds like they are related, but I don't know why.  You may ask your treating physician to give you a prescription for a topical wash like Brevoxyl-8 Wash to use before and after your threading.  Another option may be a topical antibiotic such as Cleomycin.

Good luck and be well.
