Canada & Mexico
Canada and Mexico have some of the most relaxed laws when it comes to laser tattoo removal. Currently there are no restrictions from the authorities on who can provide tattoo removal treatments. No medical background is required to perform laser treatments for unwanted tattoos. However, due to the potential harm that can be done to clients, we believe that it is irresponsible for anyone to practice without proper training and we strongly suggest that all potential providers become educated and certified through a respected and experienced laser educator.
United States of America
Since every state in the U.S. has different laws stating who can fire an aesthetic laser we highly recommend you contact Lorenzo personally so he can explain the requirements and how they pertain to you. For the most part, there are only a few states that require you to have a medical background or an on-site MD. Florida, California, Texas and North Carolina have the strictest rules and regulations, making it nearly impossible to practice tattoo removal without being a licensed Medical Doctor or Nurse. It is always a good idea to contact your local medical board and or the Radiation Safety Licensing Branch for a full description of the law, since either one is usually in charge of regulations.
