fractional non-ablative laser question

hello all,

i'm in the middle of a series of palomar starlux 1540 fractional non-ablative laser treatments. i had my first of three sessions back 3 weeks ago now. i was supposed to have my 2nd treatment this past tuesday however, it was canceled due to the laser 'breaking down' and I am rescheduled for next week. my third treatment is still scheduled for the original date.

my question is this - is it safe to do the final two treatments only TWO weeks apart? the dr. claims it will be safe but i don't know if he is only saying this to keep his schedule the same. i am just very scared that doing the last 2 treatments so close together might be dangerous.

any advice on this will be much appreciated!!!

Usually it is recommended you should wait 3-6 weeks between two treatments. My doctor tells to to wait for 4 weeks. I would suggest you postpone your third accordingly.

I will be doing my third in 3 weeks.
