As long as laser is conducted by a fully trained and qualified therapist and the correct after care advice is followed, the likelihood of burns would not occur. Laser is completely safe there are no long-term side effects.
Certain precautions should be taken by a therapist when you come in for your treatment.
Make sure the therapist is using the correct machine settings which suit your skin colour.
The client should also make the therapist aware of any medications they may be taking at the time. A cooling system should be implemented in the treatment.
If you suffer from sensitive skin and perhaps are prone to flare ups, then extra cooling should be conducted. Therapists can apply a natural soothing ingredient such as Aloe Vera on to the skin after to cool the area down.
