"Totally agree again Robert. It is essential training packages and courses recognise current industry practices. This is a requirement of the standards RTO'S adhere by. Dermal therapies are provided now by most salons, currently with non qualified therapists. This puts clients at risk and importantly puts our industry safety records back 10 years. Last year we saw a similar thing happen with the Laser course.SHB60118. The entry requirements are too prohibitive. RTO's have noticed a huge drop in enrolments, and many RTO's that used to offer the old course are no longer offering it. Again this course should be an entry level stand alone course with nothing to do with the beauty course, or at least be able to be completed in conjunction with diploma of beauty. That will ensure we have again qualified people performing these treatments. There is no legislation whatsoever in many states and minor legislation in other states so Skills IQ must follow current industry practice for client safety"

"Medical supervision is not required given the protocols already in place for the supply of topical anaesthetics. The supply of topical anaesthetics has been a complex issue for cosmetic tattooing that now has some well established processes that can and should be applied to skin needling. Most state and territory authorities do not seem to be focussing attention on skin needling, probably as it has only become 'big business' in recent years. Topical anaesthetics as Schedule 2 medicines (2 to 10% actives) can be supplied by a compounding pharmacy to the patient/client for use in a procedure. Most authorities are now allowing that patients can request assistance in application of these anaesthetics from their treating technician. No medical supervision is required. It is worth noting that skin needling covers a much bigger surface area than cosmetic tattooing and therefore the amount of anaesthetic available for absorption is more. Note also that shallow or superfical skin meedling, here defined as up to 0.5mm depth, does not need topical anaesthetic."

"This comment does not seem to recognise current industry practice, where the vast majority of these treatments are being performed at beauty salons and clinics around the country. Recognising current industry practice and driving engagement with accredited training will improve standards, reduce risks and allow skin therapy specialists to serve their clients well. To try and limit these procedures to medical practitioners would be highly detrimental to the beauty industry, drive up costs considerably, and put greater strain on the number of medical professionals available to conduct healthcare."
