A local business advertises laser hair removal with “all procedures performed by licensed nurses and aestheticians.” Every time I hear the ad I find myself wondering, do licensed aestheticians actually take courses in aesthetics? How much do you have to know about beauty and truth to get a license? Is this the skill philosophy majors fall back on if their philosophy shop fails? And how do you get on the certifying Board? I did find a web page for The University of Aesthetics (“an educational oasis”), but I’m curious, do aesthetic standards vary from state to state or is there some sort of federal regulation?
There are lots of questions that need to be answered before submitting to laser hair removal. Caveat emptor.
