Get Involved in TN Medical Spa Legislation TODAY!

Urgent Tennessee Update

Reported by Mona Sappenfield, CEO/Founder, Mona Spa and Laser Center

Described as a "runaway grease fire", the medical spa legislative issue in Tennessee is heated again.

The Cosmetology Board is taking the position that it will "read" my proposal and discuss changing cosmetology laws for modern esthetics at the August 6 Cosmetology Board meeting in Nashville. If your business is affected by erasing estheticians' occupation beyond facials and waxing, then you should request to speak at this board meeting. The board's position today is that it does not want to have anything to do with regulating lasers.

Estheticians are NOT represented on the Tennessee Cosmetology Board. You need to get active or "get educated in another career" as the chairman stated to me on Monday.
