Have you been trying to find a clinic to start laser hair removal but confused with all the different terms and claims that clinics are providing? Here are the main points you need to think about and ask when you choose a clinic to join for Laser Hair Removal London treatments.
What Technology Is Being Used?
Many years ago, there was a range of machines that were available that had no name, which usually meant that the efficiency of the treatments was not always guaranteed. Since then, the technology for laser machines has advanced with years of research and development taking place. Nowadays, there are many well-known machines, from Soprano Ice, Cynosure, and Syneron Candela’s gold-stand. For example, the Gentle Max Pro by Syneron Candela uses a dual-wavelength which means using the Alexandrite and ND: Yag, and it can treat fair skin types as well as darker skin types. With a course of treatments, you could find that you get up to 80% hair reduction.
What Are Safety Measures In Place?
Laser technology is 10 x more powerful than any at-home device and should therefore be handled with the highest caution and safety in place. At-home methods and many smaller laser hair removal devices would not require many steps that in-clinic laser hair removal would. When choosing a clinic, be sure to check out whether they provide the following, patch test before starting treatments, go through your medical history, goggles during treatment, and provider pre and post-care information to follow.
How Many Years Of Experience Is Available?
As with all laser treatments, there can be associated risks which is why it is crucial to find a clinic that has many years of experience in treating clients and a doctor within the clinic. Not only is their expertise essential, but you can look out for the training of their staff and practitioners. To perform laser hair removal treatments, you should at least have an NVQ Level 3 and undergo training with the clinic. If the clinic also provides many other treatments and a proven success rate, you can feel confident that you would receive an efficient service. You can also lookout for any client reviews, testimonials, and before and after results they share; if you see a clinic that doesn’t provide this, then you might have to dig a bit deeper and ask around.
How Many Branches And Where Are They Located?
Last but not least, you want to make sure you can find a place close to your house or work, so you don’t have to spend too much time travelling or worrying about running late. The best way to do this is to see if anyone of your colleagues or friends can recommend somewhere as chances are they will be based at the same place as you and have had good results so far. Another way to find out the best location near you is by checking on Google Maps, you can search for ‘Laser Hair Removal London’, and a list of the closest clinics around you would come up. Once you have found a clinic, you can consult with them to find out more and ensure they tick all the boxes above.
