Cosmetic Therapist (CT)

Cosmetic Therapist Renewal

Online Renewal


Cosmetic Therapists are required to renew their licenses biennially to maintain an active certificate to practice. The Board utilizes a “staggered renewal” process for its licensees. It is based on the first letter of the last name. See the staggered renewal chart here.

Ohio licenses may be renewed online at elicense.ohio.gov. You may view your renewal status online here.

 

Before Completing Renewal Application

Applicants will be required to complete the renewal application in its entirety and pay a non-refundable fee. Applicants will be required to upload any required documents because of an affirmative answer provided in the Questions portion of the application, license specific certifications and to have a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover).

 

After You Apply

Following submission and payment for your renewal application you will receive an email confirming submission and payment.

If you need to contact the Board, please email license@med.ohio.gov.

 

Late License Renewal


Late renewal is applicable if the license has lapsed for less than two years.

 

License Restoration


An individual should apply for a restoration application if their license has been inactive for two years or more. A license may be restored upon an applicant's submission of a restoration application, the restoration fee and submission of criminal background checks. Please note: The Board may require additional training or examination, or both, of any applicant who for the two years or more immediately preceding the date of application has not been engaged in clinical practice. To restore a license, log into the eLicense portal: eLicense.ohio.gov. You also need to complete an employer recommendation form.
