Hi All,

I have had HIS treatment at the Manchester Clinic in the UK.

To cut a long story short I had treatment at a certain competitior of HIS and the first session faded a lot. I subsequently went to HIS for my second session which I am very happy with.

#### who I am dealing with in Birmingham has recommended that I get laser treatment to correct my hairline. I am skin type 4-5. Initially no patch test was offered. Is it standard practice to perform laser treatment on SMP with no patch test? Is this not dangerous. 

Every other laser centre I have spoke to in the UK INSISTS I do a patch test regardless of whatever treatment I have had specifically because of my skin type.

If anyone has any advice or similar experience please advise.

Hi Ed. No response. I also asked for the consent that would probably need to be filled in. It’s extremely worrying for me that every other laser clinic in the country who I contacted in the country have insisted on a patch test for my skin type.

This shows a disregard for wellbeing in my opinion. It’s not safe to do laser treatment on me with first testing how I might react. 

These machines scar and burn people. They also do not necessarily even work on my skin type.

Just an update in this:

i was informed by #### that patch test is not essential for my skin type because the area is too small, the power settings so low and becauses I am borderline 4-5 so it should be ok. Along with this I was to SMP removal bears more resemblance to permanent make-up removal than tattoo removal.

I have not had laser treatment yet so I cannot comment on this further.

I also found out elsewhere that there are other types of lasers (very expensive top end) such as PicoWay and others.... that are highly suitable for dark skin and give very quick removal results.

Also I would like to add, the delay in the response was because #### was actually off work on the afternoon I emailed him. So really there was nothing to worry about!

Here is some background to this thread. I received some bad treatment elsewhere. I am currently in the process of getting my treatment corrected at HIS by one of their excellent practitioners! 

I seem to have the ear of the CEO of the other clinic now. So we will see what comes if it!

Second session with Danny in Manchester is now complete. The results are looking very good! I went into a barbers yesterday to get a beard trim. The lady who trimmed me up didn’t have a clue even though it’s scabbing and she was 2 inches away! lol
