If you washed your face aggressively, you could cause increased redness. My suggestion is to continue following your post operative instructions. I suggest vinegar soaks 3 times daily to my patients. My patients also use Bioshield and Aqauphor ointment. I suggest calling your physician if you're concerned. Best, Dr. Emer
