The British Medical Laser Association are set to launch ‘Essential Standards’ for the safe use of laser & light sources in non-surgical aesthetic applications at the forthcoming BMLA Annual Conference.
It is estimated that Non-surgical interventions such as treatments with Laser and IPL devices, account for 90% of all cosmetic procedures undertaken in the UK and contribute to 75% of the market value.*
The BMLA “Essential Standards” are specifically written to offer a clear and comprehensive set of industry standards for the use of non-surgical aesthetic application of Laser and IPL. In the absence of regulation, these standards provide the entire sector with the required guidance needed to implement best-practice and improve both patient and operator safety.
The BMLA Essential Standards will be formally launched at their 35th Annual Conference to be held in Manchester (17th – 19th May). To finds out more about the BMLA Essential Standards and the Annual Conference, visit the webpage: www.BMLAConference.co.uk
