BLT “Numbing Cream”
Prior to your cosmetic appointment/procedure, your provider will send a prescription Coastal Pharmacy. One week before your cosmetic appointment, you will need to call and provide payment in the amount of $20.00 @ 757-800-1601 and verify any pertinent information, which will include the office the procedure will be performed. Once this process is complete, Costal Pharmacy will deliver the medication to the given office.
If this process is incomplete, the office has the right to reschedule your appointment. Although this is not what we would choose to do, but we want you to be comfortable during your procedure.
Numbing cream needs applying at least 30 minutes prior to your schedule appointment. We ask that you arrange to arrive allowing the numbing time.
Certain cosmetic procedures can cause bruising. If you bruise easily, we recommend you plan accordingly for any social or important events. In most cases bruising, will dissipate within 5-10 days post procedure. Pariser Dermatology does sell a product, “Inhance” to help speed recovery.
We also recommend for those that bruise easily, to discontinue certain medications prior to treatment.
- 7 days prior to treatment – Aspirin, or aspirin containing products (Excedrin, BC/Goody Powders) NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Motrin Aleve, Advil, Naproxen, Midol)
- 3 days prior to treatment – St. John’s Wart, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Bilbao, Fish oil, Flaxseed oil, Coenzyme Q, Cayenne Pepper, Ginger, Licorice extract, Green tea, Ginseng, Red yeast, and Garlic supplements.
If the following medications are for medical reasons, please DO NOT DISCONTINUE.
Avoid drinking alcohol 2-3 days prior to treatment and 24 hours after
Eating fresh pineapple 2-3 times daily for 1-2 days, pretreatment, may help to reduce bruising
