Laser Hair Removal

Good Afternoon   My name is Aracelis.  I am in the process of educating myself to get back into the Esthetics industry.  Can Estheticians perform Laser Hair Removal in Florida?

Hi Aracelis,

Michelle is correct! This info comes from the "Florida Board of Medicine". Here's another find from Google:

"In the State of Florida are allowed to perform laser and light-based hair removal only if they have active Electrolysis license, and have been certified as CME by the Society of Clinical & Medical Hair Removal, Inc. (SCMHR) and also have been trained in Laser Hair Removal or graduate from a combined program that includes laser hair removal as part of its curriculum."

Google is always a quick place to see what's going on! But your State Board is where you get your up-to-the-minute facts. No one can be up to date with each US State Boards. That would be a job in and of itself! lol Wishing you success! Lina

Dear Aracelis,

Currently, the only regulation that directly addresses laser hair removal is Rule 64B8-56.002, F.A.C., which states that electrologists can perform laser hair removal only under the direct supervision of a licensed physician who has been properly trained in hair removal.
