Am I a candidate?

Candidacy for laser or light treatments are determined by many factors, including the skin’s response to UV light. Prior to treatment all clients will undergo a consultation where a certified laser practitioner will gauge your skin type and determine if you burn/tan easily and if treatment is suitable for you.

-Skin cancer

-Pregnancy (Including IVF)

-Use of photosensitive medication and herbs for which 300-294 nm light exposure is contra-indicated

-Diseases which may be stimulated by light 300-294nm

-Prolonged exposure to sun or artificial tanning during 3 to 4 weeks prior to treatment and post treatment

-Active infection of herpes simplex in the treatment area

-History of keloids or hypertrophic scarring

-Diabetes (insulin dependent)

-Excessively fragile and dry skin
