Undergoing Other Laser Treatments After Fraxel

If one gets 5 Fraxel Restore treatments done and tries to do other procedures such as Pearl Laser, Deep FX, or Pixel Laser, will those additional procedures harm the skin after the Fraxel treatments?

No harm using ablative lasers after non-ablative treatment

It is not uncommon for ablative lasers (Active/Deep FX, Fraxel Repair) to be done after fractional non-ablative such as Fraxel Restore. Patients often want the more dramatic improvement that they can receive with ablative lasers.
