Independent healthcare providers in England must be registered with the Healthcare Commission this includes Beauty Salons using laser or IPL or similar hair removal devices. To register, they need to demonstrate compliance with the Care Standards Act 2000 and associated regulations. The Healthcare Commission tests providers’ compliance at least annually by assessing each registered establishment against a set of National Minimum Standards, which were published by the Government for that purpose and set out the expected standards for different types of independent health services.
The Healthcare Commission does not recommend or endorse any orginsations but by being registered it does show that the orginsation meets the minimum standards of practice, including:
Check the Healthcare Commission web site www.healthcarecommission.org.uk and search for details of the clinic you intend to use. If it's not there then the clinic is operating illegally and you will be putting yourself at risk. Remember if they are not registered but perform treatments that require registration then their insurance may not cover them, as they are practicing outside the law!
