Stratamed gel after fractional laser?

I've done fractional laser to treat my acne scars month ago, then my DR subscribed Stratamed gel 10g combined with Zarotex & Contractubex daily, because I still have very tiny acne scars and redness, Are there any precautions I should take while using this combination and how long to use it?

Products after fractional laser

Thank you for your question Ayamorgul. Stratamed and Contractubex are products that can help with scars. Zarotex is a retinoid (tazarotene) available in Egypt. It stimulates collagen formation, which can help with acne scars. For my patients I recommend avoiding retinoids for one week before and after a fractional laser treatment. Please consult with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Fractional laser and gel

Yes, I sometimes do prescribe Stratamed gel after fractional laser, especially for keloid scars. Use your Specialist guide, as we all have different post op care. Use this for as long as YOUR specialist has asked you to. If I am treating keloid or hypertrophic scars, 6 months use.  Other applications, varies.
