Laser Hair Removal Techniques You Should Be Using

Understanding Different Skin Types

Understanding different skin types is key to delivering an effective and safe treatment and diagnosis to a client. The skin type of a new client should always be one of the first considerations when looking at the next steps of their treatment – this goes for all laser treatment procedures including, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, and vascular lesion treatment. Different skin types will all react differently toward exposure to a laser. Without the correct match of treatment to skin type you will not only fail to deliver effective treatment, but also risk damaging the treated skin area. It is important to make sure all of the practitioners in your laser clinic understand how to treat skin types correctly. Why Does Treatment Effectiveness Vary with Skin Type? The type of skin your client has is one of the largest factors to consider when assessing the treatment you will give. The general rule when it comes to skin type is the lighter the skin complexion the more effective treatment and the less side effects there will be. Older laser treatments have been known to cause discolouration and damage to dark skin types, however advancements in laser treatment have reduced this. Darker [...]

Hiring Tips for Clinic Owners

The staff you hire in your clinic are one of the most important considerations, right up there with your laser device. The staff will not only be the faces of your company, but they will be responsible for providing the service to your customers, so making good choices when hiring is vital for your clinic’s success.
