Over the years, beauty has steadily evolved along with technology. The ideal of perfection is now easier to attain and more accessible than ever, whether it’s perfect teeth, bigger lips, great hair, or flawless skin.
There are a variety of ways to achieve these, from plastic surgery to various hair and skin treatments. As a beauty therapist or Salon owner, the more advanced treatments you offer in your business, the more your customers will increase.
With IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and laser treatments, your customers can minimize/remove wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, unwanted body hair, and even tattoos with long-term results. But in untrained hands, these advanced beauty treatments can cause some undesirable side effects or injury.
Here’s where IPL and laser safety training comes in.
- Certification is a legal requirement for anyone who operates IPL/Laser equipment.
Your salon should not offer this treatment without The Laser Safety Officer’s (LSO) Certificate. The LSO is a requirement of the Queensland Government, overseen by Queensland Radiation Health, the Government of Western Australia Radiological Council, and the Tasmanian Government Radiation Protection Unit. The LSO certification is the first step in applying for your Laser License.
- You’ll gain credibility and confidence from your clients.
Trust is vital in any business, as is knowing how to safely and expertly operate potentially harmful machines like Laser and IPL machines. Many people have expressed fears and doubts about laser treatments, so having a recognised certification will assure them that they’re in safe and well-trained hands.
- Reduce potential risks and get appropriate insurance.
Although rare, accidents or unprecedented side-effects can happen. With a certification, you learn how to safely operate a Laser and/or IPL machine. This ensures you decrease potential accidents or litigations from occurring. You’ll also be able to acquire the appropriate insurance to protect you and your clients in case something unexpected happens.
It should always be a priority to keep the workplace safe for everyone! Employees should understand and be aware of all potential hazards and risks.
- You and your employees will gain skills and knowledge to apply in the workplace.
Throughout the course, you will learn how to uphold an even higher standard of safety in the salon and contribute to a safer, regulated work environment. As an LSO you’ll also be able to keep up with the ever-changing laser technology and learn about different kinds of lasers you can operate as you complete your Professional Laser Licence.
It’s important to stay on the leading edge of safety training and advancement.
Persistent motivation and integrity in enforcing laser and IPL safety policies will protect your team and your clients, while making a difference.
