  • Avoid skin irritants for several days before and after treatment (i.e. products containing tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, vitamin C/ascorbic acid, astringents, etc.).
  • Notify the clinic if there have been any significant changes to your health or medications after completing the consent form or after your last appointment.
