  • No Sun or Tanning prior to the procedure or after the procedure for at least 4 weeks.
     
  • Avoid direct shower water on the treated area after the procedure.
     
  • Do NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
     
  • You have to be off Accutane for at least 1 year.

 

  • Avoid alcohol or caffeine prior to the procedure this will minimize any oozing or swelling after the procedure.
     
  • Getting a procedure while on your menstrual cycle can make you hyper-sensitive at the procedure site.
     
  • Avoid extreme exercise (sweating) directly after the procedure, at least 3-7 days. Sweat is salt water and will fade the pigments prematurely.

  • DO NOT RUB, SCRATCH OR PICK AT THE TREATED AREA, let any scabbing naturally exfoliate off....picking can cause scarring or loosing pigment.
