Can Restylane injections be followed by laser rejuvenation the same day?

If I were going to offer Restylane (R) injections and Laser rejuvenation on the same day, I would do the laser treatment FIRST and follow with the injection. This would prevent any laser effect on the Restylane if it were injected first.

Yes, I have done this without problems many times.

It depends on the type of laser treatment. Nonablative laser treatments like photorejuvenation are fine on the same day. However, same-day fractional laser treatments are not recommended, due to the skin being compromised and swollen after the laser treatment.
