Laser resurfacing procedure in dermatology involves creating superficial wound. Erythema, edema, and scaling are common and temporary side effects. We report three patients which were given topical combination cream containing panthenol, madecassoside, and niacinamide in multi-lamellar emulsion (MLE) following laser skin resurfacing procedure. The combination cream was given to two patients receiving Q-switched Nd:YAG (RevLite®, Cynosure®, Massachusetts, USA) laser treatment and one patient receiving fractional CO2 (Bioxel®, AMI Inc®, Seoul, South Korea) laser treatment. Erythema and edema diminish gradually in 7 days after treatment. This may be due to the anti-inflammatory effects of panthenol, madecassoside, and niacinamide. MLE also may contribute to repairing the damaged skin barrier after procedure, thus supporting the superficial wound healing. Topical combination consisting of panthenol, madecassoside, and niacinamide in MLE may ameliorate various side effects following laser procedures in dermatology. However, further research with better methodology and greater sample size is needed.
