Laser Hair Removal Regulations and You

regulations laser hair removalHave you been considering a new career in the exciting industry of medical aesthetics? Maybe you have been considering specializing in laser hair removal. Before you get started, however, you should be properly educated on the laser hair removal regulations in your state. Becoming a cosmetic laser technician can be quick, easy, and personally rewarding. Read on to find out more.

Regulations Depend on Your Area

Did you know that laser hair removal regulations change depending on your state? In most states, the requirements to become a cosmetic laser technician are the same. They are that you:

  • Be at least eighteen years old
  • Have a high school diploma or its equivalent

Some states, however, have stricter licensing requirements than others. Some states do not have any licensing requirements at all.

Why Laser Hair Removal Regulations Are Important

It can be dangerous to perform laser hair removal if you have not been properly trained, even if you are an experienced cosmetologist. Those with a cosmetology background may understand the chemistry of the hair. However, this is not enough to ensure a patient’s safety.

Furthermore, training ensures the best aesthetic results for the patient. For example, trained and licensed technicians can properly assess a variety of skin types. Cosmetic laser treatments use a wide array of lasers, and some work better with some skin types than others.
