- appliances for control of hair growth and
- appliances for skin and beauty care incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS). Appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS) either heat up hair follicles or skin tissue to produce thermal effects or to produce photo-biological effects from specific wavelengths. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account:
- persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction or
- children playing with the appliance. The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this standard be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication. Key words: Cosmetic, Beauty Care, Lasers, Intense Light Sources
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2010.
