Is it safe to have my aesthetician use a Lamp robe?
No, it’s NOT safe but not for the reason you might think. To remove something on the skin safely, you have to make an accurate diagnosis first. Aestheticians do not have any medical degree whatsoever. As much as I respect and love many aestheticians, they should NOT remove skin lesions without a prior skin exam done recently. I have personally seen skin cancers, including melanomas, misdiagnosed by well meaning aestheticians.
See a Dermatologist for a skin exam first and ask if it’s okay for your aesthetician to remove something first.
Hope this helps!! Dr. I
