CAUTIONS

  • You should not take aspirin, ibuprofen or anti-inflammatories from 3 days before. Do not drink alcohol from the night before your procedure. No coffee, or exercise stimulants with caffeine (like BioPlus) on the morning of your procedure.
  • Retin A and Retinols should be stopped 7 days before, and should not be used for 3 weeks after procedures. Using these too soon can cause the pigment to fade.
  • You should stop taking all vitamin supplements at least 3 days before, and very important to stop taking any Omega 3 supplements, Vitamin E supplements 7 days before, as these thin the blood and can result in excessive bruising and pigment migration.
  • Don't plan a facial, peel with acids, fibroblast or microneedling within 7 days before your procedure, and 2 weeks after.

If you're unsure, it's best to consult your doctor for approval well before the time.
