Standards of Practice

SCMHR strives to promote widespread adherence to common standards in the hair removal industry. We feel there are core standards that must be met for a hair removal practitioner to provide the best, safest and most scientifically-advanced services to clients. If your hair removal provider is a member of SCMHR, you can be sure your provider is adhering to these standards.

These important standards of practice include:

  • Compliance with government OSHA standards for use of lasers for hair removal
  • Strict use of eye protection and safety signage for laser hair removal providers
  • Having an appointed safety officer for your clinic or organization
  • Maintaining all proper medical records
  • Maintaining a protocol of high standards for the well being of the patient
  • Training all employees in the fundamentals of all laser technology used by the practice
  • Becoming nationally certified for hair removal
  • Having records of good standing in a national organization that promotes continuing education
  • Complying with all state licensing and registration requirements
  • Carrying malpractice insurance
  • Compliance with HIPAA rules
  • Compliance with SCMHR Code of Ethics
