    Avoid aspirin, nurofen (ibuprofen), and ant-inflammatories or blood thinning medications such as Plavix ONE WEEK BEFORE your appointment.
    Paracetamol or Panadol are not included in this group and should be taken as an alternative pain killer to aspirin in the preceding week.
  •  Avoid fish oil supplements, garlic tablets, ginger tablets, evening primrose tablets, St John’s Wort, gingko biloba, multivitamins containing Vitimin E or Vitamin E tablets for ONE WEEK BEFORE your appointment.
  •  It is preferable the patient avoids alcohol for the day before and the day after the procedure.
  •  Avoid strenuous exercise and swimming after your procedure for at least or as directed by the Doctor who treated you.
  •  Do not have treatment if you have an infection at or near the site of the treatment or an active herpetic lesion or cold-sore.
  •  Do not massage the area treated unless instructed by the Doctor who treated you.
  •  Use ice after treatment to reduce initial swelling.

  •  Avoid extreme heat or cold (wind chills or solariums, sun bathing, saunas) for at least four weeks
