Desonide Cream After Fraxel Restore?

I just had laser restore on the temples of my face. On one side I have live flesh, like an open wound where the fraxel hit. It never bled or anything and it doesnt hurt but im concerned. I called dr and said to put 0.05% desonide cream on. Will this help? I am concerned about developing scars. Thank

Fraxel Restore vs. Fraxel Repair. These are very different lasers and you didn't specify what energy levels were used. Only your doctor who did the treatment should recommend what would be best to use on your skin if it is not healing normally.
