Safe Acne Treatment While on Fraxel Laser?
- Asked by SCRD123 in Canada

Is there any natural vitamins or anything I can take to prevent acne through my treatments or anything topically I can use?
I want to do whatever I can to prevent any breakouts because I have to stop topical Retin A and I hear you can breakout after Fraxel
While it might be wise not to take Tetracycline or one of its derivatives during Fraxel treatment. There are a hosts of other treatments, both Rx and OTC.
Zithromax is becoming one of my top choices in patients for whom I cannot use a Tetracycline. Plus, due to its exceptionally long half life, my patients only have to take ten pills a month.
If you are female the anti-androgen, Aldactone, can be used as can birth control pills such as Yaz.
Topically, while it might be prudent to avoid the Retinoids (and I am not so sure about that), benzoyl peroxides, topical antibiotics, and aczone can all be used safely. OTC products which are apt: Benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acids, niacinamide, and sulfur.
