Comment from American Med Spa Association:


It’s good that we’re getting these questions because it shows that medical spa owners and practitioners care about remaining compliant ( #ComplianceisCool 👍🏼) but because technology moves faster than the law, it’s sometimes difficult to determine what the answers are. However, we can use what we know about similar treatments and technologies to determine the most prudent course of action until government agencies make their rulings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Simply put, the #AquagoldFineTouch is essentially a #microneedling device, so a lot of the issues we’ve addressed in recent years regarding are likely also going to apply to it. Every state that has looked into has found it to be a medical treatment, so a good-faith exam must be performed before the procedure, and if a doctor is not administering the treatment him- or herself, it must be properly delegated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortuna for practices that would like to use unlicensed practitioners to perform #Aquagold Fine Touch procedures, this takes them out of the scopes of practice for estheticians and LVNs. In addition, the fact that #Botox and fillers are being administered raises the question of whether or not this represents an injection and, therefore, if it can be administered only by a registered nurse or, in some cases, a nurse practitioner, physician assistant or physician. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The only conclusion we can draw with any sort of certainty is that Aquagold Fine Touch will be regulated in much the same way as microneedling, both in terms of medical board rulings and FDA approval, which has become a bit of a sticking point for microneedling products recently. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Additional mixing different drugs together, as many doctors do with the Aquagold Fine Touch device, may represent a violation of pharmaceutical regulations, as many IV bars are finding out. Does a practice need to be registered as a pharmacy and have pharmaceutical oversight? Can nurses do it? Can LPNs? Who is qualified, capable and allowed to do this under the law? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📞👨🏻‍⚖️Give us a call if you’d like to learn more about the laws in your state: 312.981.0993.

Comment from American Med Spa Association:


It's a hairy situation in New York! Most states view laser hair removal as a medical procedure that requires proper training and physician supervision. However, in New York laser hair removal is entirely unregulated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At some point in the past, the medical board declared that lasers, when used for hair removal only, are not the practice of medicine, so they don’t oversee who does it. And there’s no other regulatory body, so laser hair removal remained unregulated. Essentially, anybody can go buy a laser, open up a shop, and start doing laser hair removal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This relates only to laser hair removal—other uses of lasers in aesthetics are considered to be medical in nature and therefore are regulated by the state medical board and require physician supervision. In the years since the board declared that it did not consider laser hair removal to be medical, the state has attempted to close this loophole, but its efforts have as yet been unsuccessful. On January 18, 2019, a new bill that would create a laser hair removal licensure procedure was filed in New York. This would create a situation similar to Texas’ LHR law, which allows licensed individuals to operate largely independently, though they are required to submit to periodic oversight by a physician. Do you think this new bill will pass? Stay tuned to AmSpa for more details as this story develops.

Comment from American Med Spa Association:


Let’s talk Dermaplaning in TX! #MedSpaLaw ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the state of Texas, estheticians and cosmetologists are permitted to perform #microdermabrasion procedures as long as they only remove dead skin cells. However, Texas #estheticians and #cosmetologists are not allowed to perform dermaplaning regardless of the layer of skin effected. The reason is that using a bladed implement on the face is considered shaving and only barbers are licensed to shave the face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most states have at least some restriction that limit or prohibit esthetician’s and cosmetologist’s ability to dermaplane. Some strictly limit the depth of skin that can be affected. Some make it a medical procedure and require that it be performed under medical supervision or by medical practitioners. What’s the law in your state? Comment below! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👨🏻‍⚖️📞 Give us a call if you’d like to learn more about the laws in your state!

It is presented by Maegen Kennedy from @FleekBrows who has been training people to perform this technique for several years. She is a board-certified physician assistant and licensed tattoo artist whose experience in the field can help newcomers understand the ins and outs of the microblading process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎉 FLASH SALE!!!
