Can I use other products besides Vaseline and aquaphor after a CO2 laser?

I paid for two fractional CO2 laser sessions to treat acne scarring. I did the first one and love the results so far, but the aquaphor caused clogged pores, blackhead and a breakout. I was wondering if borage oil and sunflower oil can be used instead of Vaseline or aquaphor?
