Medspa Legal & Legislation > Laws Requiring Medical Directors in Oregon

Which board governs the requirement to have a medical director in Oregon - Medical, Nursing, other? I can find some reference to the responsibilities of a medical director but not mention of the requirement to have one and the specific language of that requirement. I'd like to find that information in writing.

Who and what criteria decides what a medical spa is?

Can a spa owner or device (radio frequency) owner use the device if they are not a licensed esthetician or medical professional?

You're asking a lot of different questions here Linda but I'll try to help.

Who oversees licensing in Oregon? Well that would be both the state and the medical board. The other issue you'll have is medical malpractice insurance, which is going to belong to a clinician.

There's no agreed 'criteria' for what a medical spa is. In really just a made up name that only has meaning in marketing. In some cases it's a day spa that has a doctor come in once a month and inject Botox, in another it's a multi-physician plastic surgery practices with surgical suites that offers scented water.

But there is one truth: If you're doing anything medical you're going to have to have a licensed clinician and malpractice insurance.

On using RF devices: That depends. The answer is always NO unless they are doing so under the direction and supervision of a physician. What that supervision entails depends upon the state where you're located.
