What the AMA Wants You to Know About Medical Spas

Are medical spas safe? Could your cosmetic surgery be conducted the same way your facial or massage is conducted?

Maybe. However, the American Medical Association (AMA) wants medical spa customers to know that certain procedures, particularly invasive procedures and those requiring anesthesia, are actually the practice of medicine, not cosmetology ,and as such as should only be performed by trained medical experts.

Before you get any treatment done in a medical spa it is important to consider the training and supervision of those performing your treatment. A recent meeting of AMA delegates indicated that further rules, regulations and recommendations could be forthcoming in this area.
