Some medical societies are speaking out about Dangers Of Unlicensed Personnel Performing Medical Cosmetic Procedures In Non-clinical Settings according to an article posted at Medical News Today. Personally, spas are for mud packs and hot baths. When I have my skin resurfaced or my lips botoxed I will be seeing a licensed medical provider.
Cosmetic procedures, including tissue filler injections, laser therapies, chemical peels and skin resurfacing, should only be done under the care of properly credentialed and trained medical professionals using only products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Over the last few years, there has been explosive growth in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, often performed in retail or spa-like settings.
