 The confusion that has arisen regarding licensing is clarified below. At The Treatment Room we purely specialise in Laser hair removal and this treatment (as carried out by a Beautician )recently became exempt by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) In October 2010. Establishments where treatments are carried out by a doctor within a private clinic outside of the NHS will have to be registered. Any other treatments such as acne or laser pigmentation removal will have to be registered. Our therapist is insured to carry out laser hair removal treatment and has been trained by Lumenis  to carry out  laser hair removal treatments only. A medical protocol has been devised by our off-site doctor. Our maintenance contract and queries handled by our Laser Engineers. A laser assessment has been carried out regarding our specialised laser room. The laser protocol has been written by our laser protection adviser as well as Lumenis. This enables us to provide a truly professional and a safe environment to carry out laser treatments. We have been carrying out laser treatment for the last 7 years and have closely followed the legislations and the changes happening within this field. 

Legislation is as follows which can be be found on www.CQC.com( Care Quality Commission website)•

Providers of non-surgical lasers an Providers of lasers and intense pulsed lights currently registered under the CSA 2000 for non-surgical cosmetic purposes. Providers of lasers and lights used for non-surgical cosmetic aesthetic purposes, such as hair removal by a healthcare or non-healthcare professional (a beautician for example) and currently registered under the CSA 2000, will not be required to register under the Health and Social Care Act 2008. They will, therefore, no longer be subject to regulation by the Care Quality Commission from 1 October 2010.

Any queries, please contact me via email or call Razia 07939013974.
