How long do I need to abstain from sun exposure prior to getting dermabrasion ? I will also be getting liposuction too.

Pre op for dermabrasion and liposuction
Hey Vladimak! I do not require my patients to avoid sun all together prior to treatment/procedure. I make sure that they prep the skin at least 2 weeks, if not 1 month, prior to their surgery date. I like to make sure they are using a Retin A, Vit C and E and a bleaching agent. Post procedure, you will need to make sure and stay away from as much sun exposure as you can. I like to do the in the fall due to patients being less likely to be outside. If you do have to get outside, use an adequate sunscreen, sunglasses, scarf and hat. Hope this helps and good luck with your treatment.
