Laser Hair Removal is a medical cosmetic procedure performed to reduce or stop unwanted hair growth with a medical device. Lasers used to remove hair must be cleared or approved by the FDA. In the State of Florida, Laser Hair Removal must be performed by a licensed Electrologist or physician. Before the Laser Hair Removal procedure, a patient must always be assessed by a licensed doctor. Laser devices used to remove hair are very powerful and can be dangerous even in the hands of trained professionals.
Burns from a Laser Hair Removal procedure is a serious injury.
In Florida, only a licensed physician (doctor) or a licensed Electrologist can legally perform laser hair removal or light-based (IPL) hair removal procedures. A doctor must always directly supervise any Laser Hair Removal technician (licensed Electrologist).
