I am flying in on February 5th from California to have my 3rd session of microdroplet silicone injections with you (around areas of my nose & nostrils). I also booked an appt. for a Fotofacial @ Luminaire 1.5 - 2 hours before the Silicone procedure, so my questions is: Will it be safe for me to do both the same day with no down time in between? I did notify the staff @ Luminaire of the situation regarding my concerns and such, but they informed that there shouldn't be a problem. I wanted to ask you directly because you would know better than anybody else !
thanks for the business but no. you must do the silicone first. if there is any swelling caused by the laser, it will make things very dangerous for me to read, especially since our margins of errors continue to diminish and that is why i have you sitting up with tangential light and no creams to make sure i read everything with dead-on precision. you can do it after me but not before me. sorry. sml
Thank you for your prompt response, Dr. Lam! You saved quite a bit trouble of not knowing what I would've gotten myself into. I will call in first thing tomorrow morning to cancel the Fotofacial and perhaps book for another day. I look forward to seeing you & your staff in February
