Preparing For Your First Visit

We want you to have a great first appointment with us. Here are some important
things to keep in mind so you can make the most of your visit:

Pre-care Instructions: Your Safety Is Our Priority!

If your first visit with us will involve a treatment, we will share any relevant pre-care instructions that are required. Please follow these instructions carefully, whether that involves avoiding UV-exposure before a laser treatment or discontinuing certain skincare products like retinoids.

Paperwork: Your Time Is Precious

Follow this link to find all of the paperwork you’ll need to get started at our practice, from general intake forms to consents. Fill it out ahead of time and bring it in to save time before your appointment.

Medications & Skincare

Taking any medications or supplements (herbal and/or OTC) or following a skin care regimen? Take a picture of all the labels or bring them along with you so we can have a complete overview of what’s working (or not) for you.


If you are coming in for any cosmetic treatment please do not wear makeup to the appointment so we can see your skin in it’s natural condition. For body contouring treatments or injectables like Cellfina or CoolSculpting, wear or bring loose-fitting clothing. Ask our staff if you have any questions!


Let our team know if you’re planning on attending any special events or if you need to ‘look’ a certain way by a specific date so that we can help with proper scheduling.

Last But Not Least, Inspiration!

Our Instagram (@russakderm) is a great destination for all things new and exciting at our practice. Have a look, follow along, ask us about anything that peaks your interest – we’ll see you there!
