Making the decision to use laser treatments to remove unwanted body and facial hair is a wise decision. With the variety of clinics, spas, and medispas in the Vancouver area, it is important to shop around and compare services, quality of procedures and experience of the staff.
Pricing is often seen as an important factor for many people seeking laser hair removal. While there is nothing wrong with looking for the lowest price, cheap or discounted services are often using poorly trained staff and outdated equipment, which increases the risk of skin damage during the process.
Before asking about pricing, focus in on the following three important questions to ask before booking an appointment.
What Type of System Do You Use and Why?
The staff should be able to provide information on the type of laser hair removal they use and why they recommend that particular system or treatment option. Be very wary of services providing limited information on the process offered.
Will I Be Seen By A Medical Doctor and Trained Staff?
A medical aesthetic clinic should always have a licensed medical doctor on staff. They also use highly trained staff and the laser hair removal processes used are based on best practices and the current research on skin care and effective, low risk procedures for all patients.
What Are The Risks?
With any type of aesthetic treatment, there are always some risks associated with the process. For individuals at Vancouver medical aesthetic clinics, the doctor and trained technicians will ensure the safest possible process is selected based on your skin and medical history.
The team will also describe the process and let you know if there are any possible risks. The best clinics will be using state of the art machines and the risks are extremely low and very rare, particularly with highly trained technicians using the best equipment.
