Pre-Procedure Instructions

  • Please eat something 20-30 minutes prior to your appointment. This keeps your blood sugar steady and helps you to be more comfortable and less sensitive
  • Avoid any form of caffeine 2-3 hours prior to your appointment. Caffeine is a stimulant and will heighten your sensitivity
  • If you bruise easily, we recommend taking Arnica before procedure and after. Arnica is available at most health food stores
