Board for Barbers and Cosmetology; regulation of laser or light therapy technicians. Requires, effective July 1, 2008, the licensure of laser or light therapy technicians by the Board for Barbers and Cosmetology. The bill defines laser or light therapy as the nonabrasive photo-rejuvenation of the skin or the removal of hair by selective photothermolysis, using laser or light therapy devices. The bill also increases the membership of the Board for Barbers and Cosmetology by adding a laser or light therapy technician. The bill also limits the current exemption from licensure for nurses by requiring them to be performing activities as part of their official duties in a medical facility under the responsibility of persons authorized by the laws of the Commonwealth to practice medicine and surgery or osteopathy or chiropractic.
