Aestheticians and Lasers:
Look towards the end of this document from the Board of Cosmetology under the heading of “Aesthetician”. The underlined area states specifically “a licensed aesthetician may not operate a laser under any circumstance or for any service”. As of 3-10-09, there is no update or change from this decision of the Arkansas Board of Cosmetology that I am aware of.
At Arkansas Laser Solutions, the only person who handles the Lasers happens to also be the only Fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery in NWA. Fellow status is the highest level of recognition for ASLMS members, and makes them eligible to assume a leadership role in the Society through elective office.
