Are given to themselves

The growing popularity of skin and hair beauty has led a large number of cosmetics companies, medical equipment and institutions such as the University Jihad, the Ministry of Labor and even some medical associations to hold courses and workshops on beauty and specialized skin care.

Courses such as clinical skin care (Ski-care), rejuvenation classes, mesotherapy, gel and Botox injections, laser training and… planned by companies, institutions, individuals and… for non-target groups, unfortunately the entry of non-specialists and even non-physicians And has provided technicians to do skin and beauty work. Based on the documents and relying on the training provided in these workshops, these people consider themselves competent to intervene in skin and hair affairs. They carry out their training for several hours without any clinical experience on uninformed patients, which results in injuries, many complications, and numerous complaints to the judicial and disciplinary authorities about the treatment. This trend is increasing dramatically.

A comprehensive university of applied sciences has recently been added to this group. Undoubtedly, if no solution is found in this regard, a tsunami of complications and complaints related to these unauthorized interventions in specialized skin affairs will soon start.

In this regard, reminding the following legal points can be helpful:
2) Pursuant to Article 3 of the Disciplinary Regulations for the Investigation of Trade Unions and Professionals, Medical Professionals and Affiliates approved by the Supreme Council of the Medical System on 6/6/, Medical Professionals can exclusively treat those patients whose training period Or have obtained the necessary documents from authorized centers approved by the Ministry of Health and Medical Education.

Therefore, due to having an “academic” aspect, the holding of these courses is in the exclusive competence of university departments, and the continuation of the process of miscellaneous trainings has severely questioned the university scientific trainings and the skin and hair assistant course.

Companies are only allowed to train after-sales device operators. As a result, they are not allowed to hold any workshops in the field of skin and beauty education, including how to inject gels and Botox, do lasers, and so on.
