What do I do if I want to find out more?
Our Clinic offers appointments during normal working hours throughout the week and a limited number of clinics at weekends. Please check with our Clinics what times Clinics are available.
Is laser treatment safe?
There is no published evidence to suggest that the treatment is unsafe. Furthermore, every precaution is taken to ensure the safety of the patient. Patients are required to wear approved protective goggles at all times.
What are the costs likely to be?
This will be discussed at the initial consultation, which Laserase offers entirely free of charge and with no obligation to undergo treatment. Treatment costs will vary between individuals according to the areas being treated.
Does the laser cause scarring?
Although there is a risk of scarring with any laser, in most cases, scarring is not a significant risk in our Clinic. Tattoo removal has become associated with scarring because the first lasers used for tattoo removal were very aggressive and carried a high risk of scarring In addition there are a number of methods currently commercially available which have been found to cause significant scarring. In order to try and reduce the risk, we carry out an assessment to try and identify high-risk clients and can even sometimes suggest ways of improving existing scarring.

The only significant DO is to opt for an organisation or clinic that provides MEDICAL laser treatments.
There are, however, many DON'TS when considering laser treatment and the Laserase network have probably seen them all.! Please always ensure that the Clinic you are dealing with is registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland and that the person treating is EXPERIENCED in the treatment they are performing.

You may not know that the Healthcare Improvement Scotland Regulations 2011 apply to all independent healthcare providers. This offers patients a degree of consistency across many parameters including:
• Safety and quality: Laser users must always put the client's safety first.
• Information: Laser users must provide clear and accurate information.
• Accountability: There must be an individual who will take responsibility for ensuring that regulations and standards are fulfilled.
• Consistency: A consistent standard of care must be provided.
With an independent regulator, patients also have access to complain to Healthcare Improvement Scotland should they be unhappy about our service. We would of course value the opportunity to address any of your concerns in the first instance. Should however you wish to contact Healthcare Improvement Scotland the address is as below
