Laser considerations

Speak with your Laser Technician prior to treatment if any of the below concerns relate to you


  • Can not be performed during pregnancy or while undergoing treatment for skin cancer

  • Can not treat over tattoos or permanent makeup

  • Medication precautions:

    • Accutane - last dose must be a minimum of six months prior to treatment​

    • Gold therapy - may cause blue- grey discoloration

    • Anticoagulants - increased chance of bruising

  • No self tanners 2-4 weeks prior to treatment

  • Vitiligo - may cause de-pigmentation

  • Herpes - pre-treatment with an antiviral may be indicated

  • Diabetes/ Neuropathies - may impede wound healing and decreased sensation or numbness

  • History of keloid or hypertrophic scarring (should do a test patch prior to treatment)

  • Tan skin or darker skin types have an increased risk of complications and/or pigmentary issues - Not treated as aggressively so may require more treatments for desired results

  • Do not treat questionable skin lesions - these should be evaluated by a specialist prior to treatment
