Who Should Be Performing Your Laser Treatments?

Every state has their own rules and regulations when it comes to who is allowed to run specific lasers and machines. As far as Ohio is concerned they have very strict rules (for good reasons).

Laser Tattoo Removal- MD or DO ONLY! Any laser that can remove a tattoo should only be run by a physician and not just an “on-site physician” they should perform EVERY treatment!

Laser Hair Removal- Ohio requires a physician to perform the first 2 treatments and following those treatments a nurse is allowed to continue the treatments under a physician.

CoolSculpting- This was a grey area in Ohio for a little while but as of now you must have a level of education as a nurse, in a physician led office.

It’s important to make sure you are getting the proper care during these procedures. Do your research and know you are in the best hands possible!
