Laws for Esthetically practicing without a license

Asked over 1 year ago - Chicago, IL

If i do a license look up on an esthetically in the idler . com website and nothing to that name shows up . ( even when selecting cosmetologist ) . Does that mean they're practicing without a license ? can they get in trouble ? - If someone in their boo says they've been practicing for 2 - 10 years with a certain company / doctor ( as an esthetically ) and no license comes up ? - Say a person practicing as an esthetically ( doing chem peels / lasers ) in a chiropractic office hasn't renewed their license since 2007 , is this OK ? are they practicing under the doc's license ? - I was told once an esthetically applies for the state board they can practice for 6 months without a license , is this true ? What happens to someone when they practice without a license ?

    Answered . I don't understand what 'esthetically' means--its not a word.

    As a general rule, practicing without a license, in a field or jurisdiction requiring a license can get someone sued for damages by a person damaged in some way, or prosecuted by the authorities for disgorgement of profits etc. if fraud is suspected.

    Finally, not all websites contain all information they purport to contain. Its possible the website you went to is simply inaccurate.
