Central coast Dermatologist Dr. Chris Barnard routinely treats botched cosmetic procedures. He says, "I've seen laser burns, permanent scaring, missed skin care cancer diagnosis that really shouldn't happen."
But opponents argue that this new law is wrong and ask the question, is a lack of physician supervision at a medical spa really a criminal offense worthy of up to 5 years in jail?
One 'corporate' medical spa we've investigated is American Laser Skincare. They have 156 med spas in the United States, 25 in California. The spas listed in Pismo Beach and Santa Barbara show their 'Medical Director', the doctor to supervise and certify licensed staff, as Dr. Myron Reiff. Dr. Reiff's address of record is in Lake Forest in Orange County, a 3 to 5 hour drive south of Santa Barbara and Pismo Beach. A long drive away to offer onsite direction, oversight and inspection of American Laser Skincare patients on the central coast.
He also warns patients need to be the first line of defense. "Ask what the training is of the person who's treating them is. Who is the physician, who owns the facility and may I see the doctor."
We've attempted to contact Dr. Reiff repeatedly to ask if he is onsite for every treatment or just a 'Medical Director' in name and license only? Dr. Reiff did not return our calls and when we called his office number the operator told us quote : "he's in the field."
Doctors are allowed to keep on file a 'statement of delegation' saying the doctor certifies licensed technicians to perform cosmetic procedure such as laser skin treatments. But here's where it gets tricky and here is where some med spas may be cutting corners. Dr. Barnard says that's where a problem lies, each patient is entitled to a courtesy exam ahead of cosmetic treatments, but if no doctors White Nike Air Max 95
medical necessity or cosmetic. But as Central Coast News has learned that's not always happening and many 'corporate spas' are providing cosmetic services without the benefit of a Medical Doctor directly supervising treatment.
Last year Dr. Barnard was part of a successful legislative committee that sought to strengthen consequences against medical spa chains for violating the law by the practice of medicine without proper licensing or supervision. Due to their efforts and beginning January first, a new state law will make performing cosmetic medicine without a license a felony, with up to 5 years in jail and a 50 thousand dollar fine.

Monterey, Calif. Medical Spas have become the hot trend and a 10 billion dollar a year industry. Now the Medical Community sounds a warning and have successfully backed it up with a new law to further criminalize those practicing medicine without a license. The Center for Investigative Action uncovered a growing problem where unlicensed or unsupervised staff could literally scar you for life.

Even with this new law, Dr. Barnard says more has to be done to actually regulate who is actually onsite while your getting cosmetic treatment. "There's been no policing, no control and no downside, I believe this Air Max Command Women
Remember Deanna Sensil? A momentary lapse in judgement cost her dearly. "This is the one time I wavered and it cost me."
We also reached out to American Laser Skincare's corporate office in Farmington Hills, Michigan. We wanted to ask if their patients in California are examined by onsite doctors before injections or laser treatments? After at least two weeks and several phone calls and emails, we have yet to get a response from the company.

After 3 years Deanna Sinsel of Monterey is still receiving treatment from a Medical Spa laser skin procedure that damaged the pigmentation on her face.
The Medical Board tells us they've taken action against several individuals suspected of practicing cosmetic medicine without a license at medical spas from San Jose to Camarillo on the Central Coast. Most notorious is Martha Vasquez of Salinas, dubbed the 'vegetable oil killer', after injecting a client in the buttocks with cooking oil. The patient died after one week and now Vasquez is serving 12 years for manslaughter.

So our Center for Investigative Action went to work to find out if there are any Medical Spas on the central coast that could be skirting the law. What we found in some cases was troubling and corroborates what the Medical Community fears, the corporate practice of medicine is alive and well and gray areas exist that poses a risk to unwary cosmetic consumers.
