    Do u do the skin peels in the med spa or do u have a different site where u operate your skin care business? Where did u get trainng for the pure acid chemical peels? Thank so much for your information.
    I leased an office on my own - it was a promotional year lease through a big building in a great area. I had it painted and ordered the chair, steamer, light, and products through Dr. Fam who I trained under - he is at the Dallas Center for Advanced Medical Aesthetics. His Oct. class is full but I think he begins another class in January. He is fabulous! He only ususes pure acids and you'll learn why. I've now used them on several people and they are what he says. No side-effects yet very safe and successful.

    Hi i live in Indiana, about an hour away from Chicago. I am very interested in learning how to do various derm procedures, especially Botox. I would like to open up my own clinicand possibly have a M.D. to back me. Anyone have any ideas, suggestions, helpful information on this idea or about Indiana laws? Ashley

    You need to call or visit online your state board to see if RN's in Indiana are restricted from performing various procedures such as Laser. Then call the state board and ask if RNs are under direct or indirect supervision in your state. Indirect supervision means the MD does not have to be on site.

    Do you mean that no physican is required on site or no physician is required whatsoever? Thanks.

    If indirect supervision it means no MD on site, you will work from an established set of protocols the MD leaves for you. In a few states NP's can operate without an MD on staff. I'm not sure about Indiana.

    Yes, I understand this. My question was directed to cosmetic tatooist. And I live in WV. I have emailed the WV Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses to see what kind of supervision I would need. I'm just waiting to hear back. But in the mean time, if anybody knows the laws about this in WV, your input would be great. Thanks.

    Thank you for your reply. I contacted the Indiana state Board of nursing and basically, the laws that apply are very vague. They don't require a MD, they just state a nurse can do what she feels comfortable and trained in doing. I requested more infromation. Do you carry malpractice insurance? i can not find anyone that provides it to nurses! I am planning on doing Botox one day a week in 3-4 different salons. Is malpractice insurance necessary? I saw a post that stated they had a sign in their lobby that stated they did not have malpractice insurance. doe sthat even protect them from lawsuits?

    Have you checked with The Marine Agency about insurance? www.marineagency.com. Try that...good luck.

    CJE,

    Do you live/practice in Texas? I am a RN and according to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, I need an esthetician's license to perform chemical peels, microderm, etc...even though I have receieved advanced training in these area through a CE provider. Has anyone else figured a way around this or found it to be true?

    Thanks!
