Patients that are soon to have a laser tattoo removal treatment should not have a current sunburn. If you do, it is best to wait until your skin has recovered.
Be certain that you are not on medications such as Accutane, chemotherapeutics, or blood thinners at present or within the past 6 months. These medications, and several others, can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser. If in doubt, please ask us for a list of the aforementioned medications.
Pregnancy or Breastfeeding
We do not treat patients that are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or that are breastfeeding. Although there are not specific side effects that are known to affect you or your baby, it is best to wait until you are past these things.
