Photofacial after liposuction

your skin should be ready for a photofacial now or at the latest in one more week. The photofacial's energy will not penetrate deep enough to interfere with the fat. The fat injections should not have interfered with the skin's barrier therefore, the skin shold not be more susceptible to injury from the photofacial.

We regularly use Sculptra in combination with lasers, photo facial etc.

Sculptra is injected deeply so we have never had an issue combining it with any light or laser treatment.
