I acknowledge that I might experience a scratchy, stinging sensation during the treatment. This sensation will subside during the post-treatment protocol.
I acknowledge that if I suffer from acne, the condition may temporarily look worse after the treatment, but will improve after additional treatments.
I understand that if I fail to use sunscreen, I am more susceptible to sunburn and hyperpigmentation. Exercise should be limited after the treatment for 24 hours.
I acknowledge that I have not been on Accutane for acne therapy during the past six months.
I acknowledge that I have not been using Retin-A for the past two weeks.
I will discontinue the use of Retin-A for 1-3 days after therapy.
I acknowledge that facial telangiectasia (small blood vessels) is sometimes more apparent immediately after the treatment when the skin is thin and will diminish after re-epithelialization (build up of dead cells).
I agree to remove my contact lenses prior to the procedure (if applicable). I acknowledge that if I am prone to cold sores (herpes) around the mouth or facial area, I may need a prescription for Zovirax from my medical doctor prior to having the treatment and avoid all treatments during breakouts.
I understand that my physician and/or the operator use tools that are either disinfected or disposable.
I acknowledge that my skin might experience temporary tightness, redness, or slight swelling which disappears in a few hours depending on my skin’s sensitivity.
