FDA-Approved Label vs. Off-Label: What Does It Mean?

34790757 - wrinkle reduction, the lion

If you’ve done research online for certain MedSpa or cosmetic procedures, you might have stumbled across the term “off-label.” In the US, prescription drugs require an FDA approval to be prescribed to patients, but these drugs are often prescribed for uses outside of the FDA approval guidelines for that drug—that’s where the term “off-label” comes from. Per WebMD, “Off-label” means the medication is being used in a manner not specified in the FDA’s approved packaging label, or insert.”

Why does the FDA allow off-label use?

After the FDA approves a drug—which is an extensive process where the FDA evaluates the safety, effectiveness, and indication for a drug—healthcare providers can generally prescribe the drug for an “off-label” use if they come to the determination that it is medically appropriate for a particular patient. A practitioner might choose to take such an approach if all other prescriptions have failed or if the patient would benefit from the off-label use, as is the case with many cosmetic and aesthetic procedures.

What cosmetic treatments are considered FDA approved vs. “off-label?”

Botox is FDA approved for the crows feet and glabella area (the area between the eyes) to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, Botox is often used in the forehead, nose, lip, jaw, chin, and underarm areas, as well, meaning these are “off-label” uses for the prescription.

Likewise, some fillers, such as Juvederm, Voluma, and Restylane, are FDA approved for use in the nasal labial folds, lips, and cheeks, but are also used in the chin, bridge of the nose, and under the eyes.

What do I need to consider if a practitioner uses “off-label” practices?

Many MedSpas and clinics offering cosmetic services will apply treatments and prescriptions for both their FDA-approved and “off-label” uses. Doing so serves the client by offering the benefits of a prescription, such as Botox or fillers, to fully meet the patient’s goals. What you want to be sure of is that you’re working with a reputable provider that knows what they’re doing and has conducted several of the procedures you’ve been prescribed.

Unlike Other MedSpas, DermaTouch RN Passes the Savings on to The Client!

If you look at the prices at many MedSpas and Aesthetic service providers, they are definitely not for those on a budget. For many, cosmetic procedures are considered luxury services that very few can afford. But that’s not the case with DermaTouch RN.

 Who Legally Can Inject Based on The Texas Medical Board RULE §193.17?

34790755 - wrinkle reduction, the lion

Not all MedSpa and Aesthetic Centers are created equal. In fact, you want to do your homework and have at least a basic understanding of who can perform certain cosmetic procedures in Houston under Texas law. With so many MedSpa and Cosmetic procedures being offered to supplement income for certain health and beauty establishments, you want to make sure you walk through the door of a reputable and safe establishment that knows what they’re doing, and you want to make sure they’re following the legal code of requirements.

So this might seem a bit boring to some, but please bear with us, as it’s important to at least know the basics when it comes to who can or cannot legally inject for cosmetic procedures before any practitioner puts her or his hands on you.

What is the Purpose of Texas Administrative Code RULE §193.17?

As outlined in Texas Medical Board RULE §193.17 – Nonsurgical Medical Cosmetic Procedures

“the purpose is to establish the duties and responsibilities of a physician who performs or who delegates the performance of a nonsurgical medical cosmetic procedure… These procedures can result in complications, and the performance of these procedures is the practice of medicine. This rule shall not be interpreted to allow individuals to perform procedures without a physician or midlevel practitioner being onsite, or a physician being available for emergency consultation or appointment in the event of an adverse outcome.”

Who Can Legally Inject for Cosmetic Procedures in Texas?

Per the Texas RULE §193.17, a midlevel practitioner, in addition to a physician, can inject with a written order. A midlevel practitioner is defined as “a physician assistant or advanced practice registered nurse.” Procedure is defined as “a nonsurgical medical cosmetic procedure, including but not limited to the injection of medication or substances for cosmetic purposes, the administration of colonic irrigations, and the use of prescription medical device for cosmetic purposes.”

In other words, nurses can inject with a written order. A doctor or midlevel practitioner must see the patient and then write an order that is good for a year to allow for future H&P (history and physical examinations)—a review of current prescriptive drugs and over the counter medications of the patient to assure continued safety of treatments rendered.

When is it illegal to inject in Texas? 

Per the definitions above, only a physician or midlevel practitioner—a physician assistant or advanced practice registered nurse—can inject for cosmetic procedures such as fillers, Botox, and any procedure that requires numbing injections, and so forth.

However, delivery of prescriptive drugs must be part of the individual’s scope of practice. Anyone who is injecting that falls below the level of a nurse is practicing illegally, even if employed by a physician. It’s tough for the medical board to police all of the physicians who utilize illegal practices unless they are turned in to the medical board by another organization or individual.

Who Do You Prefer for Your Filler or Botox Injections?

All things considered above, having a licensed, qualified physician or registered nurse backed by experience is the preference when it comes to conducting and overseeing cosmetic procedures; and don’t be fooled, in some establishments, the registered nurse has more skill and experience than the physician does when it comes to injections, so ask about experience.

DermaTouch RN has a highly trained staff backed by years of experience in cosmetic procedures, including Founder and Director of Nursing, Renee Moschitto, RN, BSN, and Medical Director, R. Scott Yarish, MD and Board Certified Medical Surgeon. DermaTouch RN’s treatment and care for the patient is unprecedented for MedSpas today, with national recognition from patients.
