Exclusionary criteria for light therapy includes, but is not limited to:
UNPROTECTED SUN EXPOSURE, OR USE OF TANNING BEDS OR CREAMS IN AREAS TO BE TREATED.
This applies to all hand pieces. Protected sun exposure means wearing protective clothing, or the daily use of an SPF 30+ or greater sunscreen. Patient should be advised to discontinue tanning four weeks prior to treatment, during the treatment course, and 4-6 weeks after treatment. This will reduce the chance of skin colour changes and development of new pigmented lesions.
There is no clinical evidence at this time of foetal harm from a light-based system, but the results of the treatment may be erratic or unreliable due to fluctuations in hormonal levels, hair growth cycles and physiological conditions.
Patients with menstrual dysfunction or hyperandrogenism should be referred to an endocrinologist for evaluation and possible treatment. These patients tend to have hirsutism secondary to their disease, which may respond to medical treatment.
USE OF MECHANICAL EPILATION LESS THAN SIX WEEKS PRIOR TO TREATMENT FOR PATIENTS
This includes plucking, waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, or sugaring. Patient should also refrain from these practices during the treatment course.
Confirm any allergies to medications, latex, foods, or other substances that may be used during the course of treatments.
HISTORY OF SEIZURES
Flashing lights may trigger a seizure.
Both prescription and non-prescription. Be sure to include herbal and natural remedies as these may cause photosensitivity. Patient should not be taking Accutane, anti-coagulants or St. John's Wort. for patients taking a photosensitizing medication, perform test spots 24 hours before treatment.
HISTORY OF KELOID & HYPERTROPHIC SCAR FORMATION
Although scarring is rare, picking or pulling off scabs or crusting can result in scarring. For this reason, it is recommended to proceed with extreme caution for treatment of patients with a known tendency to form keloid or hypertrophic scars.
Active infections and immunosuppression compromise the healing ability of the body. Reschedule the patient when infection is cleared.
Treatment should only be done on in-tact, healthy skin, with the exception of acne affected skin.
HERPES I OR II WITHIN THE TREATMENT AREA
Patients should consult their primary care providers for medical evaluation and possible prophylaxis.
TRETINOIN (RETIN-A, RENOVA)
Although tretinoin use in the area to be treated is not absolutely contraindicated, it is known to make skin more sensitive and prone to exfoliation. The patient is better advised to discontinue the use of exfoliating creams and other exfoliating products two weeks prior to, and during, the entire treatment course.
ORAL ISOTRETINOIN (ACCUTANE) WITHIN THE PRECEDING SIX MONTHS
Accutane changes the underlying structure of the skin, which may cause unreliable results. It may also increase skin sensitivity to light.
Areas with tattoos are unable to be treated.
