ALARMING! A recent petition says "The use of IPL and laser machines in beauty salons has grown dramatically over the past few years. ARPANSA reported around 5000 operators in 2012, and this would probably be closer to 15,000 operators in 2016, as virtually every beauty salon now performs IPL and laser hair reduction. Most of the operators are untrained.
ARPANSA reports that there are grave concerns for public safety with untrained operators. The public must be protected! Serious damage can be done to clients, and operators risk damage to themselves if they do not follow correct protocols." Whoa!
Government funding has been cut for the training 'SIB70110 Graduate Certificate in Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Hair Removal '.
