Florida Medical Spa Regulations Pushed Through

 Courtesy: AestheticRN

Post on restrict aesthetic medicine in Florida to Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons exclusively.
Update on this bill is that it passed the first reading yesterday April 19th, it has to pass two more readings, one is today. It passed on the first reading 100% yesterday. What is really terrible about this bill is that it does not grandfather in business in operation. If it passes it will be effective July 2006.

I can't believe they won't grandfather in businesses in operation.
Regarding to restriction of practice to non-derm or plastic mds in FL, the Board od MEdical Examiners of Puerto Rico just succumbed to the will of derm lobbyists and passed regulations monopolizing their specialty. Every FP or GP with a medical spa or performing cosmetic procedures in their offices are now operating illegally! The American Academy of Family Physicians is now getting involved here.
I suggest that you contact the academy of every specialty affected by these types of discriminatory practices by the state boards and legislatures.
