CA recently announced on their Facebook page that LED is considered out of scope.
Here is a link to their post, CA Board Facebook Page Your comments here will help.
There is also a petition that you can sign. CA LED Petition
Associated Skin Care Professionals is recommending that CA estheticians get involved and educate the board about the safety of LED and to show up at their board meeting on Oct 21 in San Diego, CA.
Here is a link to their website for more information. CA Board Website
Thank you, Susanne. Please keep posting this. Is there a way to draft a statement from those of us who are not able to attend the Oct. 21 meeting?
I think the restrictions they put on Estheticians are understandable but also could be avoided by closer regulations for ongoing education for the esthetician practice. I also have my Real Estate License and have to take CE's every year I accumulate a certain amount before I can renew my License or I cannot practice RE not one day after my Lic expires. I know there is some sort of system but it's not regulated enough. When I first started I feel it was but I've been an Esthetician for 15 years and I have continued my education but never been asked to submit my credentials,............ Just saying.
