Frequently Asked Questions

What is a medical spa?

The American Med Spa Association defines a medical spa as a hybrid between an aesthetic medical center and a day spa” with four core elements:

  • The provision of non-invasive (i.e. non-surgical) aesthetic medical services;

  • Under the general supervision of a licensed physician;

  • Performed by trained, experienced and qualified practitioners;

  • With onsite supervision by a licensed healthcare professional.

What constitutes a medical treatment?

A medical treatment is a treatment that impacts or affects the living tissue of the body. For example, most states believe that any treatment that affects anything outside the dead skin cells, i.e. the epidermis, is considered to be a medical treatment. There is some confusion about whether certain treatments constitute medical treatments, such as microneedling and dermaplaning. Most states do recognize these as medical treatments needing licensed medical professional oversight.

If a cleansing or exfoliation procedure is part of a medical procedure and is within the scope of practice of a dermatologist, can the dermatologist delegate the ability to perform this medical act to another person?

The department does not define or regulate medical procedures. Medical procedures may be delegated pursuant to the laws and rules regulating physicians. Physicians should consult with the Texas Medical Board about what constitutes a medical act and to whom medical acts may be delegated.

What is Aesthetics?

Aesthetics is about the nature of art dealing with beauty. This term is commonly used when dealing with cosmetic medicine.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and riding the skin of fine vellus hair.

Does my cosmetology operator or cosmetology esthetician license allow me to perform dermaplaning?

No, neither your cosmetology operator license or esthetician license allows you to perform dermaplaning.  

Dermaplaning, also known as dermablading, uses an implement similar to a blade or scalpel to exfoliate the skin.

To the extent, if any, that a physician may delegate dermablading to a licensee, please contact the Texas Medical Board at 512-305-7030 or 1-800-248-4062.
