Medspa Legal & Legislation > Who can give acoustic wave therapy for cellulite reduction in Texas?

I'm an unlicensed medical doctor in Texas, I have received training for acoustic wave therapy, this is a class 1 medical device none invasive by FDA my questions are:
1-who can give acoustic wave therapy for cellulite reduction?
2-what kind of licenses are required to operate the device
3- do i need a medical director?
4-what kind of license or permit i need for the location?

Thanks a lot

Unlicensed medical doctor?

Yes, acoustic wave therapy, is not consider as a medical procedure! now would you pls take a look to my questions? thanks

Dear Robert: "Acoustic wave therapy" is not a recognized modality by the CDRH or the FDA. If you are talking about a form of ultrasound energy it is probably going to fall into one of the regulated FDA categories such as "ultrasound diathermy" or a similar category. The state of Texas also regulates the use of "medical devices". This is complex. You need to consult with a licensed attorney if you want to stay out of trouble.
