Do NOT deregulate license requirements for people providing bodily services to the public!
This petition had 1,466 supporters
FL License requirements for Facial Specialists are already one of the lowest in the Nation, 260 hours. Further deregulating will open access for quicker and easier certification without complete knowledge or experience. This profession works closely with the body's largest organ and first line of defense when it comes to infectious disease (the skin). Proper training demands an understanding in aspects of biology, physiology, chemistry, and disease control, among many others! Eliminating training hours endangers the general public's safety and well-being. In addition, it stands to potentially saturate the job market for this industry and greatly devalue the profession. It is exceptionally frightening to think of someone being allowed to "play" on human skin of all ages with acids, various combinations of chemicals, machines using electricity, and tools with blades and needles (to name a few) without proper foundations for understanding; Skill-sets which undoubtedly need longer than 260 hours to hone.
