Best Skin Care After Total FX Laser Treatment?

Thank you for your question. There are many formulas for skin care, and this depends on how deep the treatment was. We like to use a copper peptide and vinegar soaks for 48 hours, then a moisture cream, but there are many "right ways" to manage the skin after a peel. See a Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and they will offer you a complete package.You should not allow the thick crust to develop on your face. I suggest a cool to lukewarm shower, and get it all wet, then apply some petrolatum ointment. Once this is washed off, you may be ready for a moisture cream. I hope this helps!

Having been through multiple regimens, potions, ointments and the like, the least hassle, most cost-effective, and efficient is Aquaphor with multiple cleansing/reapplying seesions per day. I have tried proprietary ointments with special growth factors, high platelet plasmas, copper, peptides and my assessment is they only cost more.
