Should I moisturize after intense pixel laser?

My technician said not to put anything on until day 7. Today is day 3 I am taking tomorrow off work but have to go back tuesday. What do you recommend? Moisturize or not. She said skin repairs faster without moisturizer

Pixel laser is a good treatment choice for pigmentation, fine lines, acne scars, and enlarged pores . Pixel Laser benefits include: great results on mild to medium wrinkling, little or no downtime after procedure and quick treatment sessions. Besides sunscreen, during the next 5-7 days after your laser treatment, you may use a non-irritating moisturizing cream or Aquaphor ointment. These skin care products will soothe your skin , resolve redness and speed up healing time.
