In brief: CeraVe or Cetaphil
The skin may be a little red or irritated after microdermabrasion so it helps to apply a light moisturizer such as cetaphil or cerave or aveeno (oatmeal) or eucerin lotion.
If you feel some itching or burning or irritation even after applying a moisturizer then you may want to try a Hydrocortisone cream (ie: cortaid). Some people may need something stronger which your doctor would need to prescribe for you.
