Done electrocautery on face to remove warts, pigmentation. Will vaseline help to heal the wound faster?

Hi Doctor, I just had electocautery done to my face to remove age warts and pigmentation. on However, I was told not to wet my face for five days and put nothing on my face. I am a bit worried that it might leave a scar . I read that it is good to put vasaline on the wounds to make it heal faster, is that correct? Flo
