I read about the treatment below to heal damaged skin. It involves using a laser, and then applying a cream. Wow, the healing process here takes 6 long months.

When the Fraxel or Pixel laser is used, small holes can be tethered across the outer layer of skin, which can stimulate production of cells to heal faster. Occlusive agents like vaseline prevent gas exchange, causing oxygen levels to fall and preventing skin cells from initiating their protective mechanism. Epionce Medical Barrier Cream helps to reform the outer layer barrier quickly, allowing gas exchange and deep healing. Chronic inflammation deep in the skin inhibits immune function, making one more susceptible to infection and allergies. Patients using this cream were found to heal much faster, and after 6 months their skin appeared almost normal.

I have no idea how good this cream is, but the key ingredients are:
•Rose Hip/Safflower/Avocado Complex
•Meadowfoam/Beeswax Extract
•Date Extract
•Essential Fatty Acid, Sterol and Ceramide Precursors

It mentioned that it does not have preservatives like most moisturizers.
