Are You Considering Laser Hair Removal to Remove Your Unwanted Hair?

  • September 25, 2015

According to CBS News, there were 919,802 Laser Hair Removal treatments in the US in 2011. That’s a lot of hair removal!

And it seems like every other day or so there is some kind of online deal for laser hair removal. It’s the latest and greatest treatment out there. It’s a little scary, the prices make me nervous because you usually get what you pay for.

It’s just kind of crazy when you think about it – who is doing these treatments? Are they certified? Is the business offering the deal licensed? There are some important things you should consider when looking to get Laser Hair Removal.

Important Tips to Know About Laser Hair Removal

  • Laser Hair Removal requires more than one treatment. It’s impossible to know how many treatments it will actually take, but it’s safe to guess more than one! Since no two people are alike you may take more, or less treatments that someone else getting the same treatment. Even with the highly skilled technicians at Caddell’s performing your procedure you may need to return for touch ups.
  • USE A CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN.  Using an untrained or uncertified technician increases the risk of complications. Complications are few and we’ve noticed that problems that arise from Laser Hair Removal are usually a result of poor work, which is why these online deals are scary to me. This is a medical treatment and do you want to just go to the cheapest clinic?!
  • Make sure you get a consultation before you start treatments. A skilled medical professional should review your medical history to help make sure your treatments are successful. You should go through your health history at your consultation including a discussion on your medications.

What should you look for in the Laser Hair Removal Clinic?

  • Clean Environment. Make sure the laser is clean! The laser treats all parts of the body – ALL PARTS!
  • Does the clinic use hospital grade wipes in the treatment room?
  • AGAIN - CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS. You need to be able to trust your technician for many reasons. Some will use lower energy on the laser, which may provide you with a less painful treatment, however the laser won’t be as effective and you’ll require more treatments.

Trusting the technician and knowing that they are setting the laser appropriately for your skin type and hair follicle is key. This is why using a well-known clinic, such as Caddell’s Laser Clinic, is better than a random online coupon. The technicians at Caddell’s are highly trained and certified and have a variety of lasers at their disposal to use on different skin pigments and hair types.
