Excruciating pain, scarring, infection and possible blood borne virus contraction! Urgent calls for standards (again)...
Today's Canberra Times has well known laser expert Dr Mary Dingley quoted as saying that in Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania licensing is a well established precaution whereas almost anyone can own and operate one in other states and territories, including the ACT. This follows a report where a number of ACT patients have made complaints about the treatment experience and outcomes of their laser skin treatments. We know that quality, accredited education is a part of the patient solution. At Bravura Education we encourage all therapists regardless of state/territory legislation to complete one of our accredited, online laser safety courses.
