Laser hair removal in the UK: Keeping you safe
Is laser hair removal in the UK safe?
Having laser hair removal in the UK has been complicated this year by the pandemic. With so many unqualified practitioners offering this treatment, you may have already heard about a session that didn’t go well. Combined with Covid-19, this might have you questioning whether laser hair removal is safe and if it’s wise for you to undergo the treatment at the moment.
Whether you’ve had laser hair removal before, or if you’re a total newbie, we understand these concerns. That’s why we’re sharing what we’re doing to ensure your laser hair removal treatment is safe with us.
Doctor-led medical clinic
Let’s start with a little honesty. Can laser hair removal go wrong? Yes, IF you get laser hair removal from someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. With little regulation, there’s no requirement for someone to be trained. Some therapists decide to offer it as an additional treatment with little to no experience.
The laser hair removal machines used in clinics are very different to those that are approved for home use. The laser is much stronger, and settings need to be adjusted accordingly. The colour of someone’s skin or hair also needs to be taken into consideration.
However, Therapie Clinic is a doctor-led medical clinic, and all our staff are highly qualified and experienced. We use the latest technology, and our professionals are fully trained on how to use them safely and correctly. With millions of successful treatments delivered, we know what we’re doing.
Before and after laser hair removal
But we go further to ensure you get the best laser hair removal results. For example, we include a consultation before and after your laser hair removal treatment. Often considered an extra, we see these as an essential aspect of your treatment. In fact, if a laser hair removal clinic does not insist on these, then it should be a red flag.
During your initial consultation, we check your suitability for treatment as there are certain things you need to do beforehand to ensure the success of your treatment. For example, it’s essential that you are tan-free whether it’s from the natural sun or a bottle!
We also discuss what you are wanting to treat. Popular options include laser hair removal for the bikini line or legs. It is also an opportunity for us to discuss your treatment plan going forward. A course of treatments is required if you want your laser hair removal to be permanent.
The post-treatment consultation allows us to cover the laser hair removal aftercare advice. This is crucial for you to follow to get the best results and avoid unwanted laser hair removal side effects.
What about Covid-19?
Finally, we know you’re probably concerned about Covid-19. However, as you would expect from a medical clinic, we have comprehensive procedures in place to keep you safe. This includes your pre-treatment consultation taking place online to minimise contact. We also have social distancing and screens in our clinics, and our medical professionals are using full PPE. You can find out more about our Covid-19 precautions here.
