Prednisone after Fraxel
Many patients who have Fraxel for wrinkles or scars at high settings are also prescribed Prednisone to help with any swelling. Please consult with your treating physician for verification but it is routinely prescribed.
Prednisone can be safe after Fraxel
Taking low doses of prednisone after fraxel laser treatments short term can be safe, and may even be prescribed to reduce swelling immediately after the procedure. Long term high dose steroids should be avoided becuause they reduce the healing process. The dose you have been prescribed should not impeed the healing from your treatment. Good luck!
