Every Class 4 laser or IPL will have specific settings that will produce the optimum results for the treatment outcome and therefore expert certified training for all operators must be included in the purchase with the availability of ongoing training for new operators if required.
When choosing a Class 4 laser or IPL, ensure that you and your staff will have full training as this is a requirement set out in standards and by licensing authorities and should form part of any purchase. This includes the purchase of previously owned/refurbished devices or systems that do not meet the BS EN60825 – Safety of Laser Products directive standard as this is essential for best practice and may be a requirement for insurance cover.
Insufficient training may lead to personnel not being covered by against possible litigation.
