Certifications

In 2015, our battle against the pseudo-producers of diode lasers for hair removal has been given formal weight with the publication of an in-depth study document presented and distributed by Esthelogue.

As it was then, the goal of our brief continues to be:

  • How to defend yourself against false/counterfeit laser technology passed off as “Made in Italy” or “Made in Germany” and put onto the Italian market without any real certification or proof of quality?
  • How to defend yourself against false/counterfeit laser technology passed off as “Made in Italy” or “Made in Germany” and put onto the Italian market without any real certification or proof of quality?

Our Certifications

Esthelogue responds in detail to each of these: all our managers in Italy have received specialist technical training. Furthermore, from 1998 to the present, our diode laser technology MeDioStar NeXT has been certified by the following notified bodies:

Always be informed – this is only way to safeguard beauty centres.
From actual producers of laser technology, we have developed a list of ten useful questions to assess the reliability of a laser technology:

 

  1. Who is the actual producer of the technology?
  2. Do the producers of the technology also develop the main components? If yes, where are the laboratories located?
  3. If the producers of the technology import the components, where do the components come from?
  4. Do the producers of the technology have proven experience in producing laser devices?
  5. Do the producers of the technology have proven experience in producing laser devices?
  6. Do the producers of the technology have proven experience in producing laser devices?
  7. What is the “actual” power of the laser? (It may seem strange to you but many producers do not indicate that in the technical sheets).
  8. In standard mode at 25 J/cm², what is the pulse length? (If it is higher than 50 milliseconds, it isn’t good!) Note: The pulse length is the most important parameter and is fundamental to the effectiveness of the treatment and the safety of the technology.
  9. How many years has the product been on the market? How many clients have already used it? In how many countries in the world? (an important aspect for the safety and effectiveness of various phototypes)
  10. Does the laser have a certification issued by a notified body? (not just a declaration of conformity)

 

Good practice before making a purchase is to demand, in view of all the points above, a paper document
