TAKE ACTION: New Regulations May Limit Colorado Estheticians' Scope of Practice

Your action is needed! The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies – Barber/Cosmetology has submitted a proposal for new regulations that could affect the scope of practice for Colorado estheticians. Some parts of the proposed amendment, particularly the language that states estheticians would be “prohibited from performing a service and/or using an implement, device or product, or combination of same that penetrates or in any way affects a client’s skin that is beyond the stratum corneum,” could limit virtually all currently accepted modalities in the profession. The proposed amendment is available for your review on the state’s website. You can also contact Ofelia Duran at 303-894-7794 or [email protected] for more information, or to provide your feedback about the proposed changes.

Colorado skin care professionals are urged to attend the upcoming hearing on the proposed new regulations, so that the profession’s interests are represented in the proceedings. The hearing is set for Monday, October 1, 2012 at 10:00 am at 1560 Broadway, Conference Room 110A, Denver CO 80202
