  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners).

  • Do not tan 3 weeks before or 3 weeks after the procedure.

  • If you’ve had laser removal of previous work done by someone else, the treated area has now more scar tissue and can affect the outcome of the result. More treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
