Is it alright to have Excel V 1 month post facial contouring surgery?

Can I have Excel V laser performed for my facial redness/flushing 1 month post facial contouring surgery (cheekbone reduction, jaw reduction, rhinoplasty )?

Laser following surgery

Redness is common from the healing process after surgery and may exacerbate an underlying tendency to flush. Treating with a vascular laser such as the Excel V is effective and safe to use after surgery. In fact, treating surgical scars early can improve the scar and speed healing.
