Consent to Perform Laser Hair Reduction
I understand that the service requested to be performed on me by Ease Medspa & Wellness Group is purely elective, and that the following problems may occur with the laser hair removal procedure:
- There is a risk of scarring.
- Short term effects may include but not limited to: reddening, mild burning, temporary bruising, blistering, or excessive swelling. Hyper-pigmentation (browning) and Hypo-pigmentation (lightening) have also been noted after treatment. These conditions usually resolve within 3-6 months, but permanent color change is a rare risk.

Herpes simplex virus infections around the mouth can occur following a treatment, also known as activation of cold sores. This applies to both individuals with known or un-known history of herpes simplex virus infections in the mouth area. Please inform us if you have ever had a problem with cold sores.
