Post treatment Clarification Please

In previous post I notice people saying that the skin should be kept dry after a treatment. Well my electrolysist told me to put cold wet compresses for a couple of days on my skin afterwards, to help the pores close up. Also she said that the more I do this the faster my skin will go back to the way it was. Is this a good idea? She also puts a cream on at the end of the session. Should I tell her to stop? Or do all electrolysist do this?
