More aesthetic roadblocks - page 2

I called the board of cosmetologists and barbers to see if I could rent a space in a salon and sure enough I can't...not without a cosmetologist license. So how are you guys doing it? If I get my... Read More

    Question for this thread. I have 2 careers right now...have had a cosmetology license for 30 years, rent a station have a great clientele and make a great living doing this. About 15 years ago I decided to become a RN so I went back to school and accomplished my goal. I now do ortho nursing part time at a major medical center on weekends and do hair the rest of the week. I have always had an interest in both fields and I think this particular branch of nursing would satisfy both careers. I need to know where I could find more info on this subject. Any info out there will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Youre experience seems ideal for this industry...
    Go check the employement websites and find who's hiring in your area.
    After doing that, go to their website and learn about what procedures they do. Once your familiar and you find one that fits what you desire...
    APPLY!!!
    The larger companies (national ones) all have in house training, so your experience and "sales" ability at the interview is all you need to get the job you want.
    My only advice is start part time, so you can see if YOU will like it!
    ALSO, by keeping your hair position, you can show (at the interview) that you have a "clientelle" following and an avenue to PROMOTE their med services...
    THEY LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THAT!!!

    ;-)
    good luck

    Hi Healthyhere.

    Do you know anything about owning your own home business doing medical aesthetics in BC, Canada? I'm a RN and my goal is to eventually start my own business with IPL treatments at home. I'm just a little confused because some people are saying you need a medical doctor to over see everything. Is this true because there are tons of laser clinics out there who are run by laser technicians. I'm having trouble finding BC laws regarding this matter.

    Your a nurse, even if your doing some borderline esthetician procedures. You answer to the nursing board. If you want to have your own facility it's opened the same way a doctor's office is. You have to be HIPPA compliant, compliant with the city (meaning since your a medical office you can only be in certain offices zoned for medical use), you'll need a license to generate medical waste and you'll have to contract with a medical waste disposal company. You do not need to get licensed with the board of cosmetology as a salon unless you employ or are a cosmetologist.

    So, you need to find a place that is zoned for medical use.
    Get your city and county occupational license.
    Apply for a waste generator permit.
    Hire a waste removal company.

    It's not that difficult. You will need a medical director. If your doing medical grade peels pharmacy's will not sell to you without a rx. Some pharmacy's will not even sell to the MD if they are not a derm! If your microderm eqipment is rated medical grade you also need an MD. Performing medical tx without an MD is called practicing medicine without a license.
    Are you allowed to set up in your own home? Either do a visiting practice or fix a clinic in your home.
