CT Joins States Requiring More ‘Medical’ In Med-Spa Staffing
Those who visit a medical spa in Connecticut for Botox, hair transplants or other cosmetic procedures can be assured they will see a licensed medical professional there, which hasn’t always been the case. Previously, consumers complained that med-spa procedures were sometimes performed by unlicensed providers, but a recently enacted state law has placed stricter requirements on the businesses. The law, which took effect Oct. 1, requires all medical spas to employ – either on staff or by contracting for services – a physician, physician assistant or advanced practice registered nurse (APRN). It also mandates that one of those medical professionals perform an initial physical assessment of every med-spa client before any procedure is done.
