THE NEW ZEALAND BOARD 

OF PROFESSIONAL SKIN THERAPIES


It is imperative that professional therapists belong to an impartial and expert organisation that can represent them; not only to be the voice for industry but also to provide independent advice, support, mentoring and guidance when it is needed.

EDUCATION





For years, professional therapists across sectors of the beauty and aesthetic industry in New Zealand have voiced their concern about the lack of representation of our industries issues to Government, local authorities and affiliated organisations.

Due to our industry having limited regulations or being self-regulated, it is constantly dealing with unqualified and poorly trained operators who can cause serious skin trauma and injury. Being aware of skin therapists operating with poor hygiene and at substandard practices, our concerns also extend to training educators and suppliers exaggerating their experience or qualifications and misleading the members of industry seeking training and certification. Members of the public and industry alike are blissfully unaware of how to compare highly trained experts from those who are not.

IMPROVING

OUR BEAUTY INDUSTRY

Proposed changes ahead from both the Ministry of Health (Writers of policy and law that filters down to local councils) and the Ministry of Education (Authority over registered polytechnics, apprenticeship schemes and training providers) - may have a serious impact on professional and ethical operators and educators in the near future. Other countries governments dealing with similar issues (UK and Australia for example)  have started a knee-jerk reaction, which saw doctors only being able to perform some treatments, if this happens in New Zealand, it could affect your business no matter how qualified and experienced you are.

It is imperative that professional therapists belong to an impartial and expert organisation that can represent them; not only to be the voice for industry but also to provide independent advice, support, mentoring and guidance when it is needed.
