Fraxel Timeframe - Help please

Hi guys,

I have had c02 approx 5 months ago, and have slight demarcation lines, and a waxier completion.

I have 6 Fraxel sessions booked in to start in a few weeks to help with surgical scars and old acne scarring.

Do you think there is any danger considering i am 5 months out of c02, can it make anything worse? or is fraxel ok and 'light' enough to commence on straight away?

Any help guys would be great

Thanks

CB

sounds risky. what does the doctor say?

fraxel can be pretty harsh at higher levels.

They seem to think it sok... but I have my reservations.

I just dont know what to do.

Can anyone offer any help?

For what it's worth, my plastic surgeon said that it would be a minimum of nine months to a year before I could have any other laser procedure done. I had three laser treatments in a short amount of time (PSR3x2 and then co2) and I have a lot of lingering redness because I didn't let my skin heal enough in between. So it could be a mistake to get fraxel so soon, but who knows.
