Stop Estheticians from Performing Laser Surgery!

Your voice is needed!
Act Now to Stop Estheticians from Performing Laser Surgery!

Patient safety is at serious risk in Oregon. Your voice is needed to help prevent possible future harm. The esthetician lobby has a significant presence and has introduced legislation that will allow non-physician estheticians to use FDA-regulated medical devices, lasers, to perform complex surgical procedures that fall squarely within the practice of medicine. Additionally, the legislation would create an independent laser esthetician board, which would have the power to expand scope of practice of laser estheticians without any oversight from the Oregon Medical Board.

Estheticians practicing medicine without the requisite medical school and residency training is a direct threat to patient safety. There are currently 14,000 licensed estheticians in the state who have been contacting their legislators and asking them to pass this legislation to help their bottom line. In order to protect the high standard of surgical care in the state, we need to inform Oregon’s legislators that laser surgery should only be performed by surgeons who have received a core medical and surgical education.

Woman’s Death From Butt Injections Ruled Homicide

The death of a woman who sought to enhance her curves via a risky black market substitute to plastic surgery has been ruled a homicide near Dallas.

Wykesha Reid, 34, died in February during her fourth visit to a Deep Ellum salon, where she received the buttocks injections. The ruling by the Dallas County medical examiner creates the possibility that authorities will charge Denise “Wee Wee” Ross, 43, and Jimmy “Alicia” Clarke, 31, in Reid’s death.

Clarke and Ross already have been charged with practicing medicine without a license in a case where a woman claimed she was harmed by shots in her rear end, according to NBC Dallas.
