AVOID alcoholic beverages for 24 hours before your appointment. Alcohol can thin the blood and increase bruising.
AVOID anti-inflammatory, blood-thinning medications in the two (2) weeks before treatment. Examples of blood-thinning medications include NSAIDs (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen) Omega-3s, St. John’s Wort, Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, etc.
Schedule important events 7-14 days after treatment. It takes some time for the results to fully settle in and you may have some initial bruising, although it’s unlikely.
Reschedule if you have any active skin infections (e.g., cold sores and rashes).
