Laser Hair Removal and Electrolysis

 What to Look for and Ask: 
  • You have the right to ask the Personal Service Worker (PSW) to explain how they clean and disinfect their equipment before the service begins.
  • The business must have a sink with liquid soap and paper towels for the PSW to wash and dry their hands.
  • The PSW must wash their hands before they touch you.
  • A new pair of disposable gloves must be used during electrolysis or laser hair removal.
  • Needles must be pre-packaged and sterile; and should be opened by the PSW in front of you. The needles are to be used only once, and then thrown out into a special container (sharps container).
  • Before being pierced with a needle, your skin must first be disinfected using an antiseptic solution, such as 70% isopropyl alcohol or an iodine- based solution.
  • Razor blades used for laser hair removal are to be used only once, and then thrown out into a sharps container.
  • The tip of the hair removal laser must be cleaned and disinfected before it touches your skin.
 Safe Healing
  •  If the skin becomes painful, red or inflamed after electrolysis or laser hair removal, see a doctor.
