Finding a good laser professional is an integral part of getting a perfect laser hair removal job done. There are hundreds of laser clinics popping up all over the country and it can be a difficult task to determine which laser clinic or professional is the right one for you. A competent, qualified and well-trained laser professional can give you the hair-free look you yearn for, whereas an incompetent and unqualified person can ruin the job.

In the process of choosing a laser professional, many people get tricked by false claims and promises of completely pain-free, 100 per cent permanent or very cheap laser hair removal. One should beware of laser clinics that offer hair removal at extraordinarily cheap rates as compared to other clinics; as such establishments are not usually reliable as regards to safety and efficacy of the laser procedure.

How to Find the Right Laser Professional

‘Ask Around, Look Around and Shop Around’ is the key for success in finding a good laser professional or clinic. You should be diligent in this quest, as any carelessness or negligence, on your part, could end up costing you and leave you with damaged skin! You should also ensure that any practitioner that you chose has the relevant BTEC qualifications or equivalent in light-based treatments.

‘Ask Around’

Firstly, throw any hesitation aside and ask friends, family and relatives for any information about a good laser professional in your city or area. ‘Asking around’ is the best way to get information about a laser professional as personal recommendation is the best way of ensuring you get a good one.

The ‘inside story’ you get about different laser professionals in this way, will be extremely valuable in guiding you for your choice of an expert laser professional. Ask about the results achieved, cost of treatment and level of satisfaction with the laser professional or clinic.

Your GP or skin specialist are probably the best people to ask as they may also know a competent laser professional in your city and their advice, in this regard, would carry considerable weight.

‘Look Around’

Look in the local directory, yellow pages or city guides for laser clinics and professionals. The internet may also provide website listings or a directory of laser professionals in your city. Once you select a few laser professionals, go to a laser clinic to get an idea about the work quality and expertise of the professional.

Do not hesitate to ask patients undergoing treatment at the clinic about their opinion and experiences with the laser professional. You should ask whether the laser professional is qualified, experienced and currently certified or registered with the appropriate professional organisation. He should be well-trained to perform the laser procedure. You should also observe the level of hygiene, safety and care employed by the laser professional and his staff.

‘Shop Around’

Now, you can compare the different laser clinics you selected, to see which laser professional is the most adept and trained, offers the best services and adheres to the highest standards of quality, care and safety. You should also compare the cost of treatment between the different laser clinics and see if it is commensurate with the qualifications of the laser professional and the services provided.

These steps will enable you to make a wise decision in finding and choosing a laser professional, one that you would not regret!
