New Medical Spa Regulations for Arizona & Texas

Arizona Medical Spa Regulation Update: Esthetician & IPL Laser Technicians

Arizona requires all training providers be registered with the state to provide training to comply with their requirements. The program shall provide a provisional certificate to the applicant verifying the successful completion of the didactic training.

An esthetician who has been using laser and IPL devices before the effective date of this amendment to this section may continue to do so if the esthetician applies for and receives a certificate pursuant to this section before October 1, 2010. Arizona state legislature requires a laser technician who wishes to perform cosmetic laser procedures and procedures using IPL devices to successfully complete 40 hours of didactic training as required by agency rules at a certified training program.

Texas IPL & Cosmetic Laser Regulations Update

The Texas Legislature has passed legislation in House Bill 449that establishes a regulatory program for laser hair removal. The Department of State Health Services is charged with implementing that program. The legislation requires every laser hair removal facility to be licensed by the department. It also requires that each individual who performs laser hair removal procedures, except physicians, be certified by the department. By September 1, 2010, every laser hair removal facility must be licensed and each individual who performs laser hair removal must be certified.

However, the adoption of the laser hair removal rules and implementation of the laser hair removal program has been delayed for a number of reasons, including the request from state leadership for each state agency to submit a plan to reduce budgets by 5%, as well as implementing an agency hiring freeze to help address the state's budget situation. Work on implementation, however, does continue forward.

I am sad to inform all that i wasted a lot of money attending NALA workshops in Az. I heard of the new AZ regulations. Then i called the regulatory board(after the fact) and found out they are not even listed on their approved list! Stupid me i guess. Some hokey hormone therapist runs what he calls a "school" buyer beware on this one. The ownership and staff just opened up this school this year and i will be shocked if their doors are open in 2012. They do laser classes and have tried to knock off some of the bigger schools in country but maybe they will figure it out in a few years... they really a bunch of hype with no substance unfortunately. I heard half their classes were canceled this year due to no attendance. Maybe i should have done more homework
