It may vary but usually not before 2 weeks after treatment
Fraxel offers different levels of treatment so the healing times will vary depending on how aggressive the treatment is. It is best to directly consult your provider about when the best time will be to receive a facial. It is also important to let your facialist know that you are receiving a series of Fraxel treatments.
Fraxel treatments and post op care
Fraxel is a fabulous treatment for fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage. I see all of my Fraxel patients two weeks after each Fraxel treatment. If you are completely healed two weeks should be the correct amount of time to resume your facials. I would definitely check with your treating physician.
You should probably wait around 30 days before having a facial after a Fraxel treatment. That being said, I'd recommend talking to your dermatologist about it, as different types of Fraxel treatments have different effects on the skin.
Depending on what type of Fraxel you received you may be able to have a facial as soon as 1 week post treatment as long as it is not a nonchemical based facial and your provider gives you the green light. Have a wonderful afternoon,
This is a good question, without a definitively
right answer.The Fraxel is a great
treatment for facial resurfacing, treating wrinkles and skin laxity with very
little downtime. And patient satisfaction is generally quite high.The healing after a treatment of the Fraxel
laser happens relatively quickly, with only redness and mild swelling lasting
for more than a few days.Notwithstanding this impressive safety profile, I recommend conservatively
that patients avoid facials for at least two weeks after the procedure, and for
at least one week before. Also, there are many possible interpretations of a
“facial”, and it would be beneficial to let your doctor know what type of
facial you are interested in doing.
