Skin Care Routine After Pearl Laser?

I'm into my fifth day after Pearl Laser and my skin looks great. What is a good skin care routine and/or products I could use from the healing point on?

Melarase creams after fractional laser

Fractionally ablative lasers require prompt and thorough aftercare. We use healing ointments after the procedure that can quiet the amount of inflammation. Once the skin has epithelialized, I would recommend a topical skin brightening protocol (we use Melarase) to lighten and even out skin complexion.

Suncreeen and doctor's call

I'd trust your treating physician. In general, I recommend a sunscreen + antioxidant combo in the morning, and a retinoid + peptide or GF cream or gel evenings.

Your doctor knows your skin best, and can make specific brand suggestions.

Good luck.
