Hello Ladies. Just a few reminders... When making your appointment, please refrain from blood thinners for 3 days prior. This includes alcoholic beverages. If you are on a serious blood thinner such as warfarin, please consult your physician, but don't stop these important medications. Bleeding inhibits the process. Think about it.. do you think the pigment will be in-bedded as your are bleeding? Crusting will be heavier and the result will be diminished. Remember, Vitamin E and St. John's wort are blood thinners. For specific questions, please call 239-898-9560.
