It is important for laser hair removal machines to be FDA and Medical CE certified because they ensure that the device is safe, effective, manufactured to a high quality, compliant with laws and regulations, and instills trust in patients.
What does it mean to be FDA approved?
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is a United States federal agency responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices (the category that laser machines fall into, even if they are used for cosmetic reasons which falls into its own category). The FDA evaluates and approves medical devices for sale in the US, and certifies that they meet certain safety and performance standards.
What does it mean to be Medical CE Certified?
Medical CE certification, on the other hand, is a European certification process that ensures that medical devices sold within the European Union meet certain safety, health and environmental protection requirements. The CE mark on a product is a declaration by the manufacturer that the product complies with all the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation.
