While you’re bombarded with great laser hair removal deals across London, there aren’t many articles about the dangers of choosing the wrong laser. Even though laser hair removal should be a safe procedure, it’s still a medical treatment. And so you want to make sure your practitioner knows what she is doing. Below I’ve summarised everything that will help you decide which Clinic to choose and know exactly where not to get laser hair removal from.
Things can go wrong
There is no shortage of Clinics, but little do they tell you their lasers may not be the safest fit to your skin type. Even worse their so called “lasers” are in fact only IPL machines.
Where not to get laser hair removal
Do not get laser hair removal if a Clinic uses IPL ( intense pulsed light). Even though they’ll advertise it as a medical laser.
The two are not the same. While intense pulsed light is a component of different colours, it will target various parts of the skin. Such as melanin, hair, lymph and water. Medical lasers only have one target and that’s your hair, hence why its so much more permanent. And also gives you superior results.
Do not get laser hair removal from a Clinic that is not regulated by a professional body.
Special treatment license by the local council is certifies the establishment to carry out specific skin and laser treatments. All that in a safe and controlled environment , where the Company have to meet a number of safety regulations.
Do not get laser hair removal from a Clinic that doesn’t have good patient reviews.
Always seek proof from patients that had dealings with the Clinic and read up on the reviews before committing to the treatment. Check out their social media profiles and see what testimonials / results/ before & after pictures they have to show. After all you want to be assured that you get the best value for your money. So why not do your research and feel confident with your choice?
Do not get a treatment if a Clinic is ready to treat you without a patch test.
This should be a massive red flag and a clear indication that your money to them is more important than your safety and well-being. Cynosure have very clear and strict guidelines about patch testing before laser hair removal and if a practice ignores this, they simply shouldn’t be offering medical treatments at all.
