Sunscreens that are best suited for post laser resurfacing are those that fulfill the following 3 main criteria:
1) SPF 30 and above (adequately protects against UVB which causes redness and sunburns)
2) PA +++ (adequately protects against UVA which causes pigmentation
3) Minimally irritating as the skin after laser resurfacing tends to be sensitive; pure physical sunscreens may be less irritating compared to chemical sunscreens.
Many international sunscreen brands will have a product that fulfills these 3 main criteria. Hope this helps you find the right sunscreen to use after your skin resurfacing!
