The use of laser resurfacing for cutaneous rejuvenation has become an important tool in the modern dermatologist's armamentarium. To ensure a successful outcome, proper preoperative and postoperative skin care is essential. Incorporating cosmeceuticals into the perioperative skin care regimen can promote a better overall patient experience by hastening postoperative healing, reducing common side effects, and enhancing overall rejuvenation. This article aims to explore the use of various cosmeceuticals in conjunction with laser resurfacing procedures. In particular, the overall mechanisms of action behind each selected therapy will be discussed, followed by a brief discussion of the existing literature on each agent's use with laser resurfacing. Theoretical considerations and a limited body of evidence suggest a potential benefit for the use of these agents in conjunction with laser resurfacing procedures; however, further placebo-controlled studies are needed to truly confirm these benefits.
