"I am a licensed skin care specialist in New Jersey and New York. I also hold a manicurist license and have worked in spas, as well as medical offices.

The cosmetology board does not regulate or investigate medical offices because it is out of their jurisdiction. The medical board licenses and governs the medical field.

There are massage therapists doing facials as they claim they can perform massage anywhere!

LED is not invasive and is extremely helpful in the skin care room. Exfoliation/dermabrasion is a necessary treatment and very beneficial. LED treatments don't damage the skin and do not break the skin and are not invasive. Tanning beds are very dangerous! So who trains, inspects, regulates this industry? Do you find skin care therapists working in that industry. NO!
