Is it okay to use Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% and Sulfur 5% Lotion before a Fraxel laser treatment?

I have an upcoming laser treatment for acne scars and I know you shouldn't use retin a prior but can I use this?

It is best to check with your treating physician what they recommend for pre and post care before a laser. I would not have my patients discontinue Sodium Sufacetamide 10% and Sulfur 5% before the Fraxel, but always best to check with your provider.
