Unfortunately, if you are darker skin toned (Fitzpatrick V- VI ) or have any of the following, this procedure is not suitable for you.

- Conditions that affect healing, such as diabetes or an autoimmune disease.
- Prone to keloid scarring (raised scar)
- Poor circulation
- Cardiovascular conditions, epilepsy, or cancer
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
