As with any procedure, it is important to contact you dermatologist or aesthetician to verify any current skin conditions you may have that could be exacerbated by the treatment. It is also important to alert of any skin care products in use, like a retin-a or a chemical exfoliant, as they may cause a reaction or damage your skin if used before or after the treatment.
