Whether you’ve already decided or just researching, the first things you’ll consider is where to get laser hair removal? And that’s without a doubt one of the most important decision you’ll have to make. And one that you should definitely spend your time researching properly.
Why do I say that?
After all laser hair removal is a medical procure; one that requires expertise and experience from the provider. Laser hair removal should be a safe treatment for you to have, but from my over 20 years experience I know how fast things go bad. With so many salons and beautician providing a wide range of laser treatments and alternative machines like ipl, you’re bombarded with choices. They may present a great deal, but not necessarily are the safest option for your skin.
The amount of botched treatments and adverse reactions I’ve heard from patients coming over from other Clinics, made me really focus on educating patients about laser hair removal, the dangers and risks of it and point out what you should research before committing to the “best deal” out there.
Here are my TOP 5 CRITERIA you should be considering when deciding where to get laser hair removal?
Always enquire about the qualification of your practitioner
Medical cosmetic laser devices should only be operated by a qualified and trained professional.
Always question whether the Clinic uses IPL or Laser
IPL’s are commonly mistaken for a laser even though it doesn’t technically contain a laser. It uses flash lamps that emit light making it less specific for hair removal. This general light may target various components of the skin. These could be water, lymph and melanin in the hair, which means the hair isn’t its main target.
Do your research on the most suitable laser for your skin type. And insist that they only use the most suitable laser for you.
A Medical grade laser is designed with direct wavelengths to specifically target the melanin in the hair. As a a result your treatments would be more specific and more effective. At Skin Perfection we are using one of the most popular lasers from the Medical Aesthetic Industry which is the Cynosure Elite. This specific laser combines two optimal wavelengths in one system: the 755nm –Alexandrite laser and the 1064nm –Nd Yag laser, allowing our highly experienced practitioners to adjust the laser specifically to your skin type.
Always enquire about treatment protocols. And only agree to treatment after a successful skin test was carried out.
Many of my patients who come to me from another Clinic have encountered serious skin damage after their treatment without a skin test. If patch test isn’t required it should be a very big red flag and indicates protocols aren’t in place or simly being ignored.
Choose an establishment regulated by a professional body.
Special treatment license by the local council certifies the establishment to carry out specific skin and laser treatments in a safe and controlled environment. To qualify for this the Company has to meet a number of safety requlations.
So which laser hair removal is the best?
