The best advice? Do your homework. In the laser world, bigger is generally better. If you see a laser or IPL which is small enough to sit on a beauty trolley – chances are it won’t be powerful enough to do the job. Portable or ‘home lasers’ are even worse. You only have to see how many second hand home laser kits are being sold on eBay to realise these machines don’t deliver the results. For fast, effective and safe results, choose a clinic which specialises in cosmetic laser treatments like we do at Laser Chic. Lastly, always ask what laser qualifications your laser consultant has apart from the basic training provided by the laser manufacturer.
