States are Starting to Strengthen Medical Requirements for Skin Care

Every now and then we hear a horror story about a skin rejuvenation procedure gone wrong. A chemical peel burns someone badly. An overdosed Botox injection causes a face to go immobile. A tattoo removal doesn't work. Although these cases are rare, they occur. And the main reason that they occur is because the person who does them really isn't qualified to be doing them. That's why it's important to make sure that you find a doctor who is medically trained to complete your procedures. Wouldn't you think that anyone performing medical procedures, even non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures, must have medical training? You'd think so, but you'd be wrong. Many states don't have laws in place about these procedures yet because they're so new that the existing legislation doesn't suit the procedures. But states are starting to catch up to our styles. Many states are beginning to recognize the importance of requiring medical licenses for people practicing medical procedures like Botox injections and LipoDissolve treatments. You can learn a little bit more about this changing legislation here. But until the laws are tight enough to keep you safe, you should double-check that you're working with a qualified doctor.
