I developed a specific laser to use after Fraxel laser to help rejuvenate the skin and not have the skin clogged. You need to consult your treating physician who should have advised you on the proper products. Epigram is a prescription moisturizer that is excellent as well. Best, Dr. Green
We use a specific protocol of exfoliation, hydration, and moisturization along with protection after laser treatments. I suggest you speak to your physician. Best. Dr, Emer.
You can keep your skin moist, not greasy with CeraVe lotion, available in your local pharmacy. You must also avoid the sun and Neutrogena Clear Skin SPF 60 would be appropriate after Fraxel laser.
There are many good moisturizers that can be used after laser treatments. It is important to choose one that is gentle and non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging). I assume the person who treated you was not a dermatologist because anyone who knows skin would not recommend cocoa butter. Cocoa butter can clog pores and is also potentially irritating. I personally recommend SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream, Alastin Moisturizer, Teoxane rHA Serum, Ceravie or Avene. Make sure you are having your treatments done by someone who understands both lasers and skin.
