If you are a beauty therapist or non healthcare professional providing cosmetic laser/IPL
treatments, things changed for you in October 2010.
Cosmetic laser/IPL services provided by beauty therapists are no longer regulated
by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and we know this has left many beauty therapy
clinics wondering what they need to meet the Local Authority/Local Council requirements
for training, safety advice, risk assessments and protocols.
Local Authorities (your local council) have now taken over regulation of the non
healthcare care sector. In some areas of England there may be ‘Special Treatment
Licence’ requirements that you need to meet but where ever you open your clinic you
will need evidence of:
Safety advice from a recognised Laser/IPL Protection Adviser (LPA)
Treatment protocols by an Expert Medical Practitioner (EMP).
We can help you with all of these things - we have experienced tutors and Laser/IPL
Protection Advisers and our Expert Medical Practitioner (EMP), Dr Philip Dobson has
helped develop the new standards for non CQC registered clinics - so we know better
than most how to help you get started.
