Questions to ask your technician during your first Laser Hair Removal consultation


1.What is the Laser Hair Removal education?

 The first thing you need to ask your technician is what level of education or training they have. There are different levels of education and not every technician is the same. You can get the esthetician that bought a Laser online and has very basic training. You can also get an esthetician that has taken a medical esthetic course that works at a spa that happens to haveana IPL . Then you can get a laser technician that is also a medical esthetician that has extensive training and education.

 2. Do you get continuous training for Laser Hair Removal?

It’s really important to find out is if the technician is getting new training on their lasers. And also ask if they are upgrading their equipment and information about their laser.

3.What type of laser are you using for Laser Hair Removal?

There are different types of lasers that are available. In general, it’s between an IPL and a True Laser. The difference between the IPL and True Laser is that IPL is more like a flashlight beam with its wider spectrum of wave lengths and is not as specific, whereas the True Laser pinpoints its target, whether it’s the color of the hair veins or pigment in the skin. The True Laser is a lot more specific and you get better results.

4. What Kind of support is available to me after Laser Hair Removal?

You always want to feel like your Laser Hair Technician is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your Laser Hair Removal process. You really want a technician that is well versed in customer service and enjoys taking care of their clients making sure they are happy, not at home wondering “is this normal?”.Sometimes it just takes a quick email to find out everything is normal. So, to keep your mind at ease make sure your technician is available for you.

5. What kind of guarantee do you offer?

If anyone guarantees that you will have 100% no hair regrowth in the future you should really question that. Hair growth is hormonal, if you change a medication, get pregnant, hit menopause have a thyroid issue in the future this can trigger a chance for new hair growth. If someone promises you something that seems too good to be true then you should question their knowledge on the hair growth cycle in general. Don’t fall for any false promises and make sure your technician is being honest with you on what to expect in the future of your hair removal process.

6. How much does Laser Hair Removal cost?

Be mindful when you see really inexpensive laser deals out there. Cheap never means good. If your laser facility is using the most advanced equipment, properly training their Laser technicians and have the appropriate staff i.e. Doctors, this adds up. You don’t want to end up in a place where you are not getting results.
