To: the Department of Business and Professional Regulation
I am writing you today on behalf of the majority of Florida Estheticians. We are upset and disappointed that our livelihoods are being regulated yet again. We have studied hard, passed exams, taken extra courses, paid thousands of dollars for extra certifications, additional insurance and equipment all while ensuring sanitation and safety precautions and protocols are met and exceeded. Also while trying to rebuild after COVID, adhering to all the PPE and new protocols, who is going to pay us back for all that time and money spent?! Many of us are certified and trained in microneedling, dermaplaning, microblading, plasma, etc... and for some of us these services are our main source of income and it has cost A LOT of money and time to provide these services safely! I hope you will reconsider your decision to regulate these services away from us. Thank you for your time.
