About the board
On July 20, 2015, Gov. Kate Brown signed House Bill 2642. This bill created a Board of Certified Advanced Estheticians (Board) within the Health Licensing Office (HLO) to oversee the safe practice of advanced nonablative esthetics and to ensure that individuals who are practicing advanced nonablative esthetics are qualified to perform services on the public. Licensing in advanced esthetics began July 1, 2016.
The law requires that the Governor's Office appoint all nine members of the new board. HLO will work with the Governor's Office to obtain interest forms for board membership. Membership is made up of the following:
- Five estheticians certified through the Board of Cosmetology with at least three years' experience practicing advanced nonablative esthetic procedures. (Once certification of advanced estheticians is in effect and when deemed appropriate by the Governor's Office, five certified advanced estheticians will be appointed.)
- Two physicians or physician assistants licensed under ORS 677 or nurse practitioners licensed under ORS 678.375 to 678.390.
- Two public members who are residents of Oregon
- In addition, the section manager of the Radiation Protection Services section of the Oregon Health Authority, or the manager's designee, will serve as a nonvoting ex officio member.
