Although my doctor says it is ok to use Retin A 2 months after my total fraxel, I read on an internet site that it could interfere with the collagen production from the fraxel. I follow all precautions including moisturizing and use of sun screen.
Can Retin A Interfere with Collagen Production from a Total Fraxel 2-3 Months After?

Retin-a is safe after fraxel
In fact, retin-a may augment the production of collagen and inhibit the enzymes that breakdown collagen in response to sunlight. Do not worry, retin-a is definitely safe.
