LIPS
•    If you are having lip procedure and have ANY history of cold sores, fever blisters, or herpes simplex, you are required to contact your physician to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks. Many physicians prescribe Valtrex (12 capsules of 500 mg each). These can be taken 2 x a day, two days before micropigmentation and four days after, or as the physician prescribes. This is not a guarantee that you will not experience a breakout, but it will reduce the chances. If you cannot obtain the medication, you should at least take LYSINE for a week prior to and following the procedure. Lysine is available over the counter at many drug and nutrition stores.
