Effective April 9, 2021, the Medical Board has adopted an emergency rule that allows physicians to continue to delegate laser hair removal to cosmetic therapists licensed by the Medical Board on or prior to April 11, 2021. This emergency rule will expire on August 8, 2021. During this time, the Medical Board will also file permanent rules to allow physicians to continue delegation of laser hair removal to cosmetic therapists after the emergency rule expires. This rule will not change the license status of Cosmetic Therapists due to House Bill 442. Effective April 12, 2021, Cosmetic Therapists will no longer be licensed by the State Medical Board.
