Hi Amp,

Check with your treating physician before using any products on your skin after Fraxel repair.

Most patients can begin to wash with Brevoxyl 8 Wash by the third day after treatment. Cutagenix or SkinCeuticals recovery product are alternatives to Aquaphor in acne prone patients. Do discuss with your doctor.

Good luck, be well, and enjoy your younger and clearer looking face.
