Drug-induced photosensitivity is caused by the light’s reaction to the medicine being taken. Most reactions occur when the skin is exposed to UVA and UVB rays (sunlight).
Although Cynosure lasers and light-based devices do no emit these types of wavelengths, we highly recommend you proceed with caution and perform test spots prior to treatment to determine client sensitivity and/or suitability.
Before proceeding, it is important to have a medical director assess your client’s skin to determine wait time. Cynosure recommends treatment of healthy, non-irritated skin. In cases where the topical treatment has caused skin to be dry, red, flaky, or otherwise irritated, patients should stop using the product 1-2 weeks prior to any laser treatment.
Gold therapy is typically given either orally or by injection to treat arthritis. The laser energy causes a chemical reaction which results in a permanent bluish/gray skin discoloration called chrysiasis. Therefore, any client with a past or present history of gold therapy is contraindicated and treatment is not recommended.
