Hi, I would like to know how long I would have to wait after a hydra facial to go for Fractional CO2 laser treatment? Thanks!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear Wan,

Thank you for your question. I agree with Dr Israr.

Hydrafacial, if done using the full protocol, involves Cleansing, Peeling and Extraction in addition to Hydration.

Peeling and extraction can take between 7-10 days for full recovery.

Apart from using Time as a decision point, do consider other signs such as skin redness, dryness and peeling. If you have any of these signs, it means that your skin has not fully recovered and it is too early to go for your Fractional CO2 Laser.

Hope that this helps!

Regards,

Dr Justin Boey

Hi Wan,

It depends on what sort of “facial” are you talking about. If the facial has extractions, eg. dermabrasions (meaning the top skin layer is mildly damaged ), it’s best to wait 7-14 days for the skin to reform and repair before undergoing a fractional co2 treatment.
 

This is to prevent uneven penetration of the CO2 laser, which will increase the chances of PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) and scarring.
