Read and follow all instructions carefully for the best outcome!

Pre-Treatment Instructions:

  • Discontinue skin irritants 1 week prior (retinoids, salicylic acid, hydroquinone, glycolics) and avoid sun exposure/tanning. No accutane within 1 year.
  • Arrive with clean skin void of lotion, oil, makeup or self tanning agents.
  • Please let us know if you are prone to cold sores so that prophylactic medications can be given.
  • Fill all medications at the pharmacy, prepare cool compresses (frozen peas in small Ziploc bags), and vinegar soak solution
  • Arrive without contact lenses and bring glasses in the event that we place ocular shields for treatment close to the eye.
  • Bring a large hat to protect from the sun.
  • Coordinate a driver if you plan to take medication for pain/anxiety

Immediately Post-Procedure

  • Some discomfort/heat/throbbing or headache is normal for the first few hours or days. The most significant discomfort is the first 30-60 minutes post treatment! Swelling is expected, is worse in the morning and improves as you sit up or walk around.
  • Rest and sleep with your head raised on 2 to 3 pillows for the first few days.
  • Apply cool compresses to the area on top of a thin towel or fabric, 15-20 min every hour to soothe discomfort if needed
  • For full face or other large treatment areas: Apply vinegar soaks 3 times a day for 15 minutes until you begin to peel.
  • Take medications as instructed.

If you have excessive bleeding or pain, call the office at (310) 777-8880

Post-Treatment Expectations & Instructions:

  • AVOID: high heat, sun, blood thinners/alcohol, touching the skin
  • Treatment side effects may include: discomfort, excessive skin redness, swelling, changes in skin texture, change of pigmentation (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation), and less likely, scarring, and infection.
  • You may begin cleansing and skincare the next day.
  • Avoid picking, peeling, scrubbing or exfoliating! This can cause scarring.
  • Avoid exercise initially. You may resume light exercise after 5-7 days and intense exercise after 10 days.
  • Avoid dusty environments, dirt, or chemical contact such as hairspray to skin.

Post Procedure Skin Care Instructions:

  • Post-procedure products may be applied as outlined below or recommended by your provider. We recommend the Alastin Post Care Kit $270 (plus tax).
  • You may wash your face the day after the procedure. Remember to treat the skin gently, avoid scrubbing/exfoliating, trauma or high heat to the treated area.
  • SPF is required daily to protect the skin from sun damage, pigmentation and scarring
  • We recommend avoiding makeup as it wont sit well on peeling/dry skin. Once healed, we recommend light, breathable makeup such as Oxygenetix Foundation $66 (plus tax) or SkinBetter ToneSmart Compact $75 (plus tax)

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
