Default sent heads out for refresh/milling, should i be using a special head gasket?

Might be a stupid question, but i figured it can't hurt to ask to avoid a potential disaster...
I sent out my heads (04wrx). they repaired and resurfaced them. Should i be using a special (thicker?) head gasket or is oem just fine? I know the amount they take off is very minimal but still, are things "closer" together now that it's been shaved? do i need to compensate for that?

There is a factory tolerance and I am sure you are within that based on your comment. We would recommend the factory Subaru head gaskets, and they are what we use on 100% of our builds for the last 17 years now. Reliability is our #1 goal at Crawford Performance.
