6. I have an upcoming appointment with Dr. Bowe in her office. What should I do to prepare for that appointment? Can I get a procedure done the same day?

Dr. Bowe recommends stopping Aleve, Advil, ibuprofen and fish oil supplements two full weeks prior to your appointment if you plan on having a procedure done that same day.  Tylenol is ok!  This will decrease your risk of bruising and swelling. If you are considering a laser treatment, she has to do a consultation first and usually will not perform the laser on that same day.
