An antibiotic such as doxycycline started a few days before your Fraxel laser treatment can help prevent an acne flare. Use a light textured moisturizer and sunscreen.
Post Fraxel Antibiotics to Prevent Acne
I use minocycline in patients who have the potential to flare after laser, needling or peels. I suggest a formal consultation with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Best oral antibiotic to prevent ACNE Post FRAXEL Laser treatment?
Best oral antibiotic to prevent acne after Fraxel is Morgidox--other doxycycline still good job but this does the best job. You should take it for three days prior to the treatment in after week after. Also use bis fine and a 4% hydroquinone. You should not use anything to oily or close it on your face during the healing process. Good luck!!
I would definitely consult your dermatologist before beginning any oral antibiotic. Many of my patients prefer Oracea and topical Bactroban for this purpose. Best, Dr. Green
