Laser hair removal is one of the best ways to remove unwanted hair on the face and body. It has been available and experimented during the 90’s and is now ever popular in the world of dermatology. A lot of people are still wondering about the safety of laser hair removal. Just like any other cosmetic procedure, it does have some associated risks, but of course, they can easily be avoided. Here are some things to check on to ensure the safety of laser hair removal procedure:
- Dermatologist – You need to consult with a dermatologist first to find out if you are a candidate for laser hair removal. Sometimes, this method is not effective depending on your skin type and color as well as your hair.
- Laser technician – In some cases, the dermatologist will not be the one to administer the laser hair removal. If a technician will be administrating, you should learn more about his or her background. Is the technician qualified to use the equipment? Is he or she experienced in laser hair removal?
- Equipment – Do your research to learn more about the equipment used for laser hair removal. The best ones are usually the newest and should be recognized by the dermatology community. If the laser is a bit old, it might not be as efficient in doing the job.
- Clinic – It’s a bit dodgy but some service providers are now offering laser hair removal inside your home. It’s still best to get laser hair removal procedures in a clinic or medical facility. Check on the clinic where you will be having your laser hair removal. Is the place hygienic? Are other cosmetic and dermatological procedures done in the clinic? Is the staff highly-prepared in assisting during procedures or giving care and advice, before and after the laser hair removal?
