PRE-TREATMENT

  • If possible, do not take aspirin or other blood thinners 5-7 days before the procedure to prevent excessive bleeding. Non-aspirin pain relievers may be taken up to one hour prior to the procedure. 

        *That being said, Do NOT discontinue any medications that are prescribed by a physician or which are necessary for your health!

 

  • Just to be on the safe side, if you are pregnant or nursing, we recommend that you wait until after you're done nursing before we do the procedure.  

  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to the procedure to prevent possible excessive bleeding.

  • If you have a condition that requires you to take antibiotics before a dental visit, you must check with your doctor to determine if antibiotics are needed for permanent cosmetics.

  • Hair removal may be done prior to your procedure (e.g., tweezing, waxing, etc.). Permanent hair removal should not be done five days before or after the procedure.

  • If you're thinking about doing Botox, please either wait 3 weeks after this procedure, or have the Botox done 3 weeks prior. 

  • Certain treatments that can thin the skin in the procedure area, like  Retin-A,  must be discontinued for at least 30 days prior to the procedure. Accutane users must be off Accutane for at least one year.  Check with your dermatologist about specific medications.

  • Procedures cannot be performed over fresh sunburns, including those caused by tanning beds. You must wait until the burn heals.
