Pre-Smoothbeam® Instructions

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  1. Avoid sun exposure or tanning for one month prior to treatment. Tanned skin can increase the chance of discoloration.
  2. To prevent bruising, avoid taking aspirin for 10 days prior to the procedure. Do not take ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil or related products like Aleve, Naprosyn) for 5 days prior to the procedure. Avoid alcoholic beverages for 2 days prior. You may take Tylenol, which will not affect your laser results.
  3. Do not scrub or traumatize the skin to be treated. Do not use Retin A (tretinoin), Renova, Tazorac or glycolic acid products for 2 days before treatment.
  4. A topical numbing cream will decrease discomfort from the procedure. Topicaine, a very effective anesthetic gel, may be purchased in our office. Apply a layer of Topicaine 30 minutes before your appointment to your facial skin or the areas to be treated. Repeat this application 10 minutes before your procedure. Do not use more than a 30 gram tube of Topicaine a single day.
