Can derma pen treatment be done while on Xarelto?

I have DVT and am currently on Xarelto. Can I continue my once a month treatments with laser and derma pen?

I do lasers, microneedling/PPR, and skin care/peels on many patients who take blood thinners.  I suggest speaking to your physician.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Hello madjaid - Thanks for your question. As Xarelto is a full anticoagulation regimen, any bleeding that occurs during treatment would be difficult to stop. Treatments would not be recommended until you stop the Xarelto. You would be able to have chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and RF skin tightening treatments though.Good luck, Dr. Shah
