Laser treatment

If you use 3B/4 lasers for non-surgical procedures such as hair removal or tattoo removal, you will need a licence. This is under Nottinghamshire County Council Act 1985 (part VI). 

If you offer intense pulse laser treatments which are not covered by the Health and Social Care Act 2008 you will also need a laser treatment licence. 

The licence covers the premises where the treatments take place. Each person carrying out the treatments must also be listed on the licence as practitioners.

The laser treatment licence is in addition to a massage and special treatments licence
