Thanks for your query. You can get a laser done after a gap of 30-45 days from the day of procedure. If done early the heat does have a tendency o melt the filler. Hope it helps.

no hard and fast rule, but I prefer to do the resurfacing first, and
then add the fillers like Juvederm. Please see an expert. Best, Dr.
Dear jay306:It is hard to give you a precise answer unless it is stated exactly which CO2 laser would be used--there are at least two versions, and even some of the same versions, made by different companies, vary in their precise effects. Are you talking about the "fractional" CO2 laser or the "regular" CO2? The regular CO2 ablates (burns away) the epidermis but does not penetrate, so would not be expected to affect your injected filler. However, the "fractional" version of the CO2 does get as deep as the dermis and might influence the "filler" that has been injected into the dermis. So, you need to ask how superficial the Juvederm was placed, and check with a board-certified plastic surgeon who routinely uses these lasers about the type of CO2 laser which is being recommended, and its exact characteristics. (and, btw, a better laser for acne scarring is the Fraxel, and not the CO2).Good Luck!
