Can anyone shed some light on setting up a Med Spa in SC? And what can or can't an RN or an Aesthetician do when the doctor is NOT on premises? ANY help is greatly appreciated!

I could sure use some guidance on this as well. I called the board of nursing before moving here and thought that I was "clear" and understood that if I wanted to do Botox or fillers etc, I needed a physician "accessible". When I asked to clarify accessible, I was just told again, accessible and that they weren't attorneys. I decided not to do Botox etc. but to stick with facials and micro needling. I've been working for 2 months independently and doing really well. NOW, the board of cosmetology says I need to go to esthetician school or get a medical director within 5 miles... This because basically the laws are so vague. I'm so frustrated and confused!!!

I am currently a RN looking to possibly open a spa after getting my Esthetician license (still trying to find a part-time program that fits my current work schedule.) I'm trying to find out what exactly a Registered Nurse Esthetician can do that a regular Esthetician can not. Any idea where I could find this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. North Carolina is also an option giving I live on the state line.
