radiation treatments using intense pulsed light and laser technologies to reduce unwanted hair on the face and body.

In this role they make complex, independent judgements in consulting with clients and analysing their skin and hair characteristics, designing
and evaluating intense pulsed light and laser hair reduction treatment programs, selecting and using appropriate technology, and applying
it within the context of safe client and operator practices and in compliance with regulatory requirements.

Ongoing technological developments in this area of practice require the use of broad knowledge and the identification, analysis and
evaluation of information from a variety of sources to build personal capability.
