how important is
« on: October 12, 2018, 03:20:21 pm »
how essential is facial hair removel before FFS?

while i am going to a new skin speciallists with medical grade lasers where i have to use specially made lignocaine ointment for pain management. i start this next month (the cheaper places were very inneffective) and have a max of 6 sessions (once per month) and the remainder killed with electrolysis. 

I will test this ointment on my arm skin first to see if i have any reactions to the medication (dont want to damage the face).

the reason i am asking is i am thinking of paying for and scheduling my FFS surgery sometime in july - august next year and wondered if total hair removal is a must before ffs ? i have to schedule it then to try to avoid heyfever season, which affects me severly...

I don't think hair removal is required before FFS however you many not be permitted to shave for several weeks after surgery. I don't know exactly how long that would be but it's a question to ask your surgeon.
