OTHER PRECAUTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS FROM OUR MEDICAL TEAM.
This section is for your information only. If any of these apply you may still be treated.
These are not contraindications:
If you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding, please notify Skin Laundry staff. Prior to receiving any Skin Laundry Signature or Carbon Laser treatments, Skin Laundry recommends that pregnant and/or breastfeeding clients notify and receive clearance from their OB/GYN physician. While Skin Laundry treatments have not been associated with an increased risk of adverse reactions in clients who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding, nor would they be expected to, it’s best to consult with your OB/GYN prior to undergoing any cosmetic treatment. Thermo Fractional and Ultra Duo treatments are not performed during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
Those with a history of cold sores should be aware that they may be triggered by heat/light and prophylactic antiviral medication is recommended.
Those with known keloid scarring may have increased risk of keloid formation. Hypertrophic or keloid scars will be avoided during treatment.
For bearded clients, it's ideal to come in clean shaven or with only up to 2 days stubble, as we will avoid areas with facial hair growth.
