How to treat skin post Dot laser surgery?

I had Dot laser surgery after a lower bleph . My skin is still swollen & bruised. Would a prescription for silvadene work to help with redness and bruising ?

I would recommend a gel or cream with some or all of the following ingredients:  aloe vera, arnica, vitamin K, bromelain, antioxidants (like vitamin C), chamomile extract, cucumber.

Some examples of great post-procedure healing gels or creams that can be purchased in many cosmetic surgery offices or on-line are:  Immuderm cream, Dermend cream, and Skinceuticals phytocorrective gel.
