How Long Should I Use Antibiotic Cream After Fraxel?

I just had a Fraxel treatment done for an incision scar. I've been putting Polysporin on it as advised, and bandaging the area. How long should I do this for, and when should I start moisturising the area? Also, is Aquaphor the best moisturiser? Thanks!

Was it Fraxel restore or Repair? Your doctor should be the one to tell y ou how to dress your wound as they know how significant a wound they created. There are risks even with the over-the-counter antibiiotic ointments, such as developing an allergic contact dermatitis.
