Most of the women who have undergone laser treatment are under the distress of causing permanent skin diseases. This is so as taking place as most of the untrained beauty therapists are operating lasers and intense pulse light machines.
In many fatal cases, these therapists are misguiding by diagnosing melanomas as pigmentation and dealing these with laser or ILP treatment that is proving to be much worse conditions resulting into skin damage.
Though these advance devices that are used for skin blemishes and removing hairs are proving to be fatal for skin health, there is no such legislation in NSW for their regulation. These are being misused and therefore need to be regulated and restricted to particular work.
These machines are not bind by any laws and so any one can buy them to broaden their business. This is also one of the reasons of its ill-effects that are handed over to untrained hands, resulting into scars, burns, and pigment loss problems in women.
Gabrielle Caswell from the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia has announced that presently every street and corners have got an IPL.
There is no such a statistics as most of the women feel embarrassed to come up with the problems and the main problem lies as women blindly believe that their therapists are trained perfectly, revealed Dr Caswell.
Dr Caswell shared his experience that women use to weep and say that they were so stupid without complete information how they got trap in insensible things that can damage their beauty instead of enhancing it.
There are shocking cases in which these devices hit our shores and ran out the door before anybody realized what was going on. 55 years old Pia narrated that how her therapist asked her not to approach the doctor and sit in front of air conditioner, when she complained of chest pain after IPL treatment on her chest. Therapist asked Pia whether she was hormonal, but soon therapist realized that Pia had been burnt due to the treatment.
When Pia suffered an excruciating pain, she did approach to doctor and learned that she had suffered severe burns. After that she was unable to bear any fabric on her chest nearly for months and she could not perform any kind of work as well as could not wear seat belt.
Pia demonstrated her worse experience and said that it was really ugly and she thought that everyone stared her chest instead of her face.
Such cases were also noticed for nearly four years in which some were also noticed by James Walter who was from Neutral Bay Laser and Dermatology Clinic. Meanwhile, just 200 have been recorded but believes to have thousands incident to occur unreported.
Dr Walter says the problem is mostly related with IPL, whereas for laser there is just one wavelength, the pulsed light machines have a spectrum of varying light energies. Laser also requires only one skilled technician to operate. There arises a risk of scarring and loss of pigment as also of blistering for women that have dark and olive skin when treated by untrained or less trained operator.
He also added that beauty therapist are provided on average only half an hour training on the use of IPL and therefore they lack of proper idea on what they are have to do.
It was learned that only Western Australia and Tasmania regulate the industry, but Queensland regulate only laser and not IPL. There is no such federal regulations and laws to restrict its use.
A special report tells that NSW Health Department is responsible for changes in Environment and Climate and they are waiting to link into a federal framework that is likely to be expected to be drawn up by Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.
