Informed Consent for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment at Lüz by Laser Lounge

This consent form provides the necessary information to make an informed decision about whether or not to undergo intense pulsed light ( referred to as laser) treatments for benign pigmented and vascular lesions.

The laser energy targets brown pigmented lesions (sun and liver spots, melasma, freckles etc.) Red vascular lesions (capillaries, rosacea, spider veins, angiomas, etc.) to help improve general appearance while leaving the surrounding skin typically unaffected.

Individual results vary and no guarantees can be made that a specific patient will benefit from treatment or achieve any level of improvement. Several treatments are usually necessary to achieve maximum benefit.

Please Note:

  1. The use of topical vitamin A derivatives (RETIN-A, Retinoids) is contraindicated in all laser treatments and must be discontinued 2 weeks before and for 2 weeks after treatment.
  2. If you have been prescribed or have taken Accutane within the last 6 months, you MAY NOT receive treatment.
  3. Both Accutane and Vitamin A derivatives are direct contraindications for ANY laser treatment and can lead to severe damage.

Patients with the following conditions may not receive laser treatments: history of abnormal raised scarring or keloid formation, pregnancy or lactation, history of seizures, tanned skin, tanning bed use, or active sun exposure 4 weeks prior to treatment.

Possible risks, side effects, and complications of laser treatments include, but are not limited to:

  • Discomfort/pain during treatment, temporary redness, and swelling may occur.
  • Bruising, blistering, burns, scabbing, and infection may also occur, but are rare.
  • Undesired skin texture changes or undesired pigment changes such as hypopigmentation (skin lightening) or hyperpigmentation (skin darkening or discoloration) may occur. These pigment changes typically resolve in 3–6 months, but in rare cases may be permanent.
  • Patients with darker skin types have an increased risk of complications such as hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, blistering, scarring, and more variable results. Tanning is NOT recommended and sun exposure must be avoided 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after treatment.
  • Laser treatments may produce visible patterns within the skin. The occurrence of this is not predictable and is typically temporary but may be permanent.
  • Very rare risk of accidental eye injury if struck by any laser beam even though laser safety precautions and eye protection are always used throughout all laser treatments.
  • Recurrent viral infections such as herpes simplex (cold sores and genital herpes) or varicella (shingles) may be activated by laser treatments.
  • Hair follicles, tattoos, and permanent makeup in the treatment area may be altered unintentionally.

FILLERS AND IPL: 

  • IPL and other heat based devices can cause an immune response with certain fillers. Please let your laser nurse know if you have had fillers anywhere. This immune response can present as reddened, hardened, swollen area where the fillers were injected. This is most likely with Vollure, Volbella, and Voluma Juvederm products

A signed copy of this document is to be emailed/given to the client upon request. Original is to be filed in Client’s medical records. Arbitration Agreement CD0501Y8v2 

ARTICLE I: ARBITRATION Article 1.1: Agreement To Arbitrate: It is understood that any dispute as to medical malpractice by Client, including any party that would have standing to assert a claim on behalf of or in connection with services provided to Client, that is as to whether medical services rendered under this contract were unnecessary, unauthorized or lacking informed consent or were improperly, negligently, or incompetently rendered, will be determined by submission to arbitration as provided by State law, and not by a lawsuit or resort to court process except as State law provides for judicial review of arbitration proceedings. For purposes of this agreement, “Dispute” means any claim or controversy of whatever kind or nature including (without limitation) any claim or controversy regarding the formation, validity, interpretation and/or enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate and any claim or controversy by the Client asserting loss of consortium, wrongful death, emotional distress or punitive damages. Both parties to this contract, by entering into it, are giving up their constitutional right to have any such dispute decided in a court of law before a jury, and instead are accepting the use of arbitration.  Article 1.2: Procedure For Initiating Arbitration: Either party to this agreement may initiate Arbitration by submitting a Demand for Arbitration in writing to the other. The Demand shall contain a plain and simple statement of the nature of the Dispute and the remedy demanded. There shall be one Arbitrator who shall be a retired Judge of a court of record. The Arbitrator shall be selected by agreement of the parties on or before 30-calendar days of the date that the Demand for arbitration is deposited for delivery with a common carrier (as determined by a postmark or other equivalent writing imprinted by the common carrier). If the parties have not agreed to a selection of the Arbitrator, than either party may petition the appropriate Superior Court to appoint the Arbitrator and, consistent with CCP § 1281.6, the Superior Court shall appoint the Arbitrator, who shall have the qualifications stated in this paragraph.  Article 1.3: Law Governing Arbitration; Arbitrator’s Award And Enforcement. Without reference to its choice of law rules, the Arbitrator shall apply the substantive law. The Arbitrator shall render his or her award in writing and the award shall separately state the Arbitrator’s findings of fact and conclusions of law. The Arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties to the arbitration and judgment on the award may be entered by a court of competent jurisdiction. Judicial proceedings to confirm, amend, or vacate the arbitration award shall also take place. To the extent permitted by law, venue for such proceedings shall be in the county (or the federal judicial district) where the services were rendered. Unless the Arbitrator shall determine otherwise, the Arbitration shall take place in the county where the services were rendered. The Arbitrator shall have the authority to hear any claim and award any remedy that could otherwise be heard or rendered by the Superior Court of State or a federal district court Discovery shall proceed in accordance with State Code of Civil Procedure, §§ 1283.1, 1282.05, and, in addition, any party, may, of right, bring a motion for summary judgment or adjudication in accordance with CCP § 437c. The parties to this agreement agree to arbitrate in one proceeding all claims arising out of the same or a related incident, transaction or occurrence. Article 1.4: Small Claims Court: Notwithstanding the foregoing any party to this agreement may initiate and prosecute in the small claims division of the Superior Court any claim at law demanding an amount equal to or less than the jurisdictional limit of the small claims division. Notwithstanding applicable law, no judgment in an action initiated in the small claims division may be entered for an amount in excess of the jurisdictional limit of the small claims division.  Article 1.5: Severability: If any provision of this arbitration agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and shall not be affected by the invalidity of any other provisions. NOTICE: BY SIGNING THIS CONTRACT YOU ARE AGREEING TO HAVE ANY ISSUE OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE DECIDED BY MUTUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO JURY OR COURT TRIAL. 

I have read and agree to the terms/conditions listed in this agreement and understand that I have the right to receive a copy of this arbitration agreement upon request.
