The best skincare after Fraxel or post laser?
Ideally, your dermatologist would give you very specific post laser care instructions and even provide the products post laser that you need to use. Post laser skin is very sensitive to both sun and to chemicals in skincare products for about a month after lasers like Fraxel or fractionted CO2 lasers, for example.
After IPL/photorejuvenation, laser hair removal, or other gentle lasers…. not as much but it’s always a good idea to stay away from the sun for a week or two after these also and use bland products for 1-2 weeks.
Everyone is a little different but a good basic, non irritating regimen should include a very gentle cleanser (organic and no chemicals), a very emolliant, thicker moisturizer (or Vanicream or Cerave creams) at least twice a day and a bland sunscreen (or Vanicream Sunscreen) in the morning also.
