Possible Changing of Licensing and Continuing Education

00Featured news

Recently there has been discussion between CTAO and the State Medical Board of Ohio. There is a possibility of change in our licensing and continuing education, from the State Medical Board to the Society for Clinical and Medical Hair Removal (SCMHR). Nothing has been finalized or decided yet, but this could mean more hours of continuing education, an additional exam with fees, paying more for continuing education and more.

We as Cosmetic Therapists are concerned about what will be happening with this change.

If you have questions of uncertainty like we do, give the State Medical Board a call.  (614) 466-3934

Physician Only Delegation

00Latest news

We have ran into a controversial issue regarding who can over see CT’s for Laser Hair Removal. As CT’s, we know that a physician must delegate to us. Some are saying a Nurse Practitioner has the right to over see us.

According to Rule 4731-18-03, Ohio Administrative Code, in order for a CT to perform Laser Hair Removal:

1. The physician must see and personally evaluate the patient to determine whether the proposed laser removal is appropriate.
2. The physician must see and personally evaluate the patient following the initial application of laser hair removal, service, but prior to any continuation of treatment in order to determine that the patient responded well to that initial application
3. The rule provides no role for a nurse practitioner between the physician and the CT.

If you are unsure about issues regarding your license, contact the State Medical Board of Ohio for further information.
