Am I Required to Wear Sunscreen Everytime After Fraxel Facial Rejuvenization??

Hi.3 days back i had had a Fraxel done on my face for facial rejuvenization for mild acne marks,slightly uneven skin and skin tone. I stay indoors all the time and dont go out. I have a very sensitive and oily skin. Am i required to wear sunscreen everytime from morning till late at night or only when its sunny outside or i can skip both as i dont go out at all ? I have also heard even the TV, tubelights and aptop monitors can cause UV exposure? How should i carry it off? Thank you. Manish

You must wear sunscreens after Fraxel Laser

Your doctor's office should have instructed you to wear sunscreens.  You should wear sunscreens whenever you are outdoors during daylight, whether it is cloudy or sunny, for at least several months after your treatment.  I wouldn't worry about moniters.
