I have my second Fraxel treatment tomorrow. Last time I broke out 2 days after. Is there a way to prevent or minimize this?

Ideally, laser resurfacing using Fraxel or Fractional CO2 laser should be performed by or in consultation with an experienced board-certified dermatologist who can guide you via a combination non-comedogenic post-op wound care cream and prophylactic oral antibiotics.
