Covering a wound with a moist bandage (not wet) specific for the purposeis best for wound healing. I used Elastoplast routinely in my practice.
A moist bandage like Elastoplast will help prevent scab formation, which can delay healing.
To best prevent scar formation, use Retin-A or a retinol product like Bare Skin Care Rejuvenation Serumon the scar starting TWO WEEKS AFTER IT IS HEALED.

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
