Petitioning CA Board of Cosmetology

Remove the exclusion of LED light therapy equipment from the current interpretation of Section 991.

It is our position that modalities such as LED light therapy is safe, effective, and does not ablate or destroy live tissue.LEDs are not lasers and the two therapies are dissimilar in their purpose and operation. Unlike lasers, LEDs cannot ablate skin. LEDs produce low-power, non-coherent (diffused) light in a specific color at a specific strength, and no heat is generated in their use. In comparison, lasers produce high-power, coherent (focused) light that can be used to ablate the skin.This modalitiy should NOT be removed from a licensed estheticans scope of practice.

This recent interpretation of statute 991 invasive procedures has caused undue economic harm on existing businesses and is not neccessary for public safety.
