Laser HRH require you to complete a Medical Questionnaire before you commence treatment at our clinic. Each time you return for subsequent appointments you will be asked to fill out a Returning Client Form, which asks you to confirm if the details recorded on your original medical questionnaire are still current & up to date. It is your responsibility to inform the Laser HRH technician of any health or medication changes throughout the course of your treatment. Failure to do so may result in complications.
