  • If you are on Immunomodulators such as Humira and Enbrel we suggest checking with your physician for individual guidance.
  • Retin A may sensitize your skin. We suggest discontinuing the use of these products 48-hours prior to your appointment.
  • Cold sores can be triggered by multiple internal and external factors including sun exposure, fatigue, stress, dental manipulation and any laser treatment directed at upper, lower lips and chin.  If you have medication we suggest you begin prophylactic treatment with an anti-viral the day of treatment and continue for 24-hours after.
  • For men, it’s ideal to come in clean shaven as we will avoid areas with facial hair. If that is not possible, the treatment area will only target areas without facial hair.
