10 tips for setting up a cosmetic laser room

  1. Some laser machines have a massive floor space footprint so have a room large enough that you can put a laser, bed and stool in and still move around easily without tripping over. If you are going to teach your colleagues ensure there is enough space to have them in there as well
  2. Some lasers are portable or can be put on the bench top so have room for a moveable trolley or adequate bench space
  3. Make sure the power points are in multiple places so if you change the layout you do not have power cords as a trip hazard
  4. Either choose a room with no windows or have window coverings that are opaque and have no gaps
  5. Eliminate specular (mirrored) surfaces. Have no mirrors or if you do have a blind installed to cover it during treatments
  6. Install a sink for handwashing and client skin preparation and cover metal components with a towel before treatment. This is also accessible if you require water to extinguish a clothing/linen fire (never electrical)
  7. Have quick access to the correct fire extinguisher for electrical fire
  8. The door must have a laser warning sign displayed at eye level that says what the laser wavelength(s) are and what eye protection is required
  9. Outside the room have a hook for an additional pair of laser safety eyewear and a simple light (like a head torch light) mounted next to the door to indicate when the laser is in use
  10. The Aust/NZ Standards were written in 2014 and under review. If there is anything significantly different we will bring it to your attention so sign up for our newsletter or check out our blog regularly.
