If you suffer with cold sores, you should be symptom-free prior to a treatment to avoid the risk of spreading. Discuss with the technician if you have any of the following: Severe rosacea, dermatitis, skin cancers, bruise easily, inflamed acne, Hepatitis C, AIDS, or using blood thinners or Accutane.
If you use Retin A products or any skin care products that irritate the skin, you should discontinue use 2-3 days before and after treatment.
There is no concern if you are pregnant or nursing. If you use sun beds, do not tan for 2 weeks after a session.
If you are planning to have injectables such as Botox or fillers, it is recommended to have them 2-5 days after a microdermabrasion.
