If laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) systems are not used properly, they can cause:
- Serious eye injuries
- Skin burns
It is compulsory for your clinic to ensure that your laser and IPL systems are used safely by your staff on your clients especially for the following treatments:
- Laser or IPL hair removal
- Laser or IPL skin treatments
- Laser or IPL skin rejuvenation
- Laser tattoo removal
It is the responsibility of a laser specialist who has the relevant knowledge and skills to carry out the laser and IPL hazard analysis as required by the Spanish Royal Decree 486/2010 that recently laid down the minimum requirements for the protection of workers from risks arising from exposure to laser and intense light radiation. After the initial analysis, the laser specialist will decide on the appropriate procedures to follow and precautions to use in accordance with standards and guidelines relevant to cosmetic laser applications.

All those steps will be carried out quickly to ensure your staff and clients are safe and your clinics comply with current legislation and relevant standards.
