ARPANSA drafting national laser and IPL framework

February 06, 2017

The ARPANSA Radiation Health Committee met in November 2016 to discuss the future of cosmetic laser and IPL use in Australia. They have established a working party to develop national uniformity for minimum education (likely to include an accredited laser/IPL safety certificate), training, terminology, equipment, patient care and injury reporting.

The vast majority of those consulted in the lead up to the establishment of the working party expressed a need for some type of structured education for new entrants into the field of laser/IPL skin treatments and a minimum laser safety certification makes great sense for beginners as a foundation from which to build their career. Certainty around terminology, the import, sales, servicing and staff training for specific laser and IPL equipment, best practice for patient care and the reporting of injuries will also be valuable elements in raising the standards of cosmetic medicine and keeping the public safe.
