Do I need a beauty diploma to do laser? Do I need a beauty qualification to do IPL?

The short answer is "No" except in Western Australia where they changed the regulations for just laser recently. 

Our students are relieved when they learn this as they say that they have no interest in makeup, eyelashes, waxing or nails and want to be confident and competent in using energy-based devices for hair removal, tattoo removal, pigmentation, capillaries and skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.

The AS/NZS 4173:2018 Safe Use of Lasers and Intense Light Sources in Health Care expect that anyone who engages with or uses Laser or ILS equipment be trained in safe use of the laser or ISL equipment.

Personnel expected to receive training include:

  1. laser users (which includes doctors, dentists, nurses and other health professionals)
  2. laser safety personnel
  3. laser team members (for example, engineers, technicians)
  4. laser system service personnel
  5. incidental personnel (for example, students, family members, medical photographers)
Regular training in the following aspects must occur:
    1. basic light physics
    2. laser safety
    3. laser-tissue interactions
    4. applications and dosimetry affecting the use of lasers
    5. operating procedures
    6. set up
    7. intraoperative monitoring
    8. use of all equipment.
