Attention! If you tend to get cold sore you might get cold sore after the procedure as well. The stimulation from the needle can bring out blisters. It can ruin the procedure and make the healing process much worse. What is more it might result in pigment loss. In this case another touch up is required to fill in faded spots. It is usually a few days after the procedure that cold sore pain begins. Please remember that cold sores could happen to anyone at any time after the procedure. It is not a sign of incorrect treatment or lack of safety, it is the reaction of the skin to the procedure. It is often recommended to take medicine for at least 3 days before and after the procedure. If you suffer cold sores more often you can consider longer treatment.
