Two weeks post erbium laser surgery: What face oils/creams should I use to help healing?

2. Will the quilt marks on my cheeks go away? What can I use to help this happen? 3. What about something like Map-15 Regenerator by Dermalogica ( has silicone-enhanced, powder-to-lotion magnesium ascorbyl phosphate)? 4. I welcome brand-name recommendations.

Thanks for your query. Erbium laser comes with a downtime. It generally takes 3-4 weeks for the marks to go away. The marks vanish without leaving any trace behind. Cicabio cream or neo skin cream helps in speeding up the healing process. Hope it helps.

I would recommend a combination of Melarase AM, Melarase PM, and Replenish creams to help the skin after an erbium peel. This will even out color and complexion.

Specialist advice after erbium laser

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Each Specialist will have their own advice and skin care. The marks should go away (Wish we had a photo to see the diameter and grids). Your laser physician should have gone through the after care with you, including the use of an emollient and cleanser. I like WSP or QV Intensive for 2-4 days, then swapping to Obaji Hydrate and Aqueous cream there after. Saline soaks can helps as well, depending on the density used. All the bestDr Davin Lim Laser and aesthetic dermatologistBrisbane, Australia.

I suggest you see an expert and speak to your physician, post operative skin care is essential after resurfacing treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.
