Tuesday, July 02, 2019

​Permanent rules were adopted on June 28, 2019, by the Board of Cosmetology and were filed with the Secretary of State's Office for an effective date of July 1, 2019. The permanent rule prohibits standard estheticians from performing laser hair reduction as it is now in the scope of practice for certified advanced estheticians. The Board considered public comment and the hearing officer report making no changes to the originally filed proposed rules.
