An untrained laser technician is like an untrained driver, and there’s not many of us who would get in a car with an untrained driver! So why give an untrained laser hair removal technician access to your precious skin? Ensuring you receive treatment from a qualified laser technician, who has the highest level of formal training, will keep your skin protected from damage, while also reaping the incredible visible results of laser hair removal or laser skin rejuvenation. Here are the top three reasons why you’d want your laser technician to have formal training.
1. They understand your needs
Qualified laser technicians have a more advanced understanding of how your skin and hair follicles will respond to the laser, which means they can provide the best advice to suit your needs. A reputable clinic will also offer an initial consultation, where they will assess your skin and hair type and provide you with a detailed treatment plan. A professional technician will let you know what to expect, how much it will cost and any pre- and post-care guidelines before conducting any treatment.
2. Lasers are medical-grade machines, not a gooey wax or mass produced razors
Medical grade lasers that have Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approval, such as the two Candela Lasers we use at The Cosmetic Clinic, are machines that need to be used carefully. These machines are not forgiving like shaving or waxing, so an unqualified operator can potentially cause major damage to your skin. A properly trained technician will fine-tune the laser settings according to your complexion, hair type and other relevant information in order to make sure your treatment is safe and effective. At The Cosmetic Clinic, all laser technicians undergo extensive training in laser safety and have to complete a specified amount of training hours before they can work unsupervised. Our team is committed to ensuring you get the best possible results for your skin and hair type.
3. Comfort is key
While laser treatments are tolerable by most, some may experience mild discomfort. A qualified laser technician will be able to adjust the laser correctly during your treatment if and when relief is needed, while still giving you the optimum results.
