Ask the physician who performed the procedure to change your topical ointment and prescribe short term antibiotic such as tetracyclene or doxycycline.
Acne and Fraxel Laser
The Fraxel laser is a fabulous laser for both acne scars, sun damage, and wrinkles. There are times when you can develop acne after the procedure. The acne can be caused by your tendency to develop acne or the product that you are using after the Fraxel procedure. Please contact your treating dermatologist about your acne flare since they may want to prescribe for you an oral or topical antibiotic.
