Tonya was very nice and not pushy at all. She knew exactly what I wanted and knew to make sure I knew that my results will be what I hope for. It could take a few sessons to get rid of a deep wrinkle. I likes her I say yes

I wanted fillers for nasolabial folds but I was so scared! Tonya put me at ease completely and I decided to go for it. The experience was absolutely excellent and I’ll be a client for life. I love the results and had absolutely no issues with the fillers. She was honest and kind about everything. The building is extremely clean and hygienic. I picked because of she is a nurse practitioner and the reviews were so high and now I see why! I’m sure this procedure is cheaper somewhere else but I only wanted to trust my face and health to someone with actual medical training. Tonya did not disappoint. They also have great deals for new clients!

I did microneedling with Maria and she was fantastic! Microneedling was not an easy procedure (it’s pretty painful), but Maria was so professional, kind, and calming! Highly recommend!

    The office staff is super accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Tuggle and Tonya Tuggle are both wonderful at what they do. I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!

  • Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

    I recently relocated from CA. I was nervous to find a new place for lip fillers after going to the same person for several years. Tonya was absolutely amazing! She is extremely knowledgeable and instantly made me feel comfortable. Tonya exceeded my expectations. I’ve received so many compliments from friends and family. The entire staff were friendly and professional. I will definitely become a loyal client. Thank you Tonya and team!!!

Albuquerque is the most populous city in the U.S. state of New Mexico. Its nicknames, The Duke City and Burque, both reference its 1706 founding by Nuevo México governor Francisco Cuervo y Valdés as La Villa de Alburquerque. Named in honor of the Viceroy of New Spain, the 10th Duke of Alburquerque, the city was an outpost on El Camino Real linking Mexico City to the northernmost territories of New Spain. The 2020 census found the population of the city to be 564,559, making Albuquerque the 32nd-most populous city in the United States and the fourth-largest in the Southwest. It is the principal city of the Albuquerque metropolitan area, which had 916,528 residents as of July 2020.

FAQ

The American Med Spa Association defines a medical spa as a hybrid between an aesthetic medical center and a day spa” with four core elements:
(1) the provision of non-invasive (i.e. non-surgical) aesthetic medical services;
(2) under the general supervision of a licensed physician;
(3) performed by trained, experienced, and qualified practitioners;
(4) with onsite supervision by a licensed healthcare professional.

AmSpa is an organization that was developed in order to keep medical spas and medical aesthetic practices in the United States operating safely and compliantly. AmSpa’s goal is the help the medical spa industry provide you with the treatments and procedures that you want and need while minimizing any risks you may experience due to unsafe practices.

However, it is important for you to take your medical spa safety and wellbeing into your own hands. Take the initiative to inform yourself about the medical spa treatments available to you before you make your appointment—check out our Medical Spa Treatment Directory for this info.

Do some research to make sure the event is safe and compliant. As a general rule, most medical boards don’t exclusively require Botox or fillers to be administered at the doctor’s office.

Provided all the proper protocols and safety measures are in place, they often can be performed anywhere, including at a private residence. Unless you have already been treated at the medical spa (MedSpa) before, you should see a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant before you receive the treatment.

If you are invited to a Botox party held by a nurse you have never met before (who is not accompanied by a doctor, Nurse Practitioner (NP), or Physicians Assitant (PA), this is a huge red flag that the party is being held illegally and that proper medical protocols are not in place.

Remember, you should see a doctor, NP, or PA first before you are treated.

It depends on your state, but as a general rule, yes, that’s perfectly fine. Most states allow RNs to inject Botox and fillers, with a few important caveats.

1) You should always see a physician (either MD or DO) or a mid-level provider (nurse practitioner or physician assistant) before your first treatment. This is not only true for injectables but all medical treatments, including laser treatments and microneedling. If you go to a new medical spa and are treated by an RN without ever seeing either a Medical Doctor(MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Nurse Practitioner (NP), or Physicians Assistant (PA), the medical spa may be breaking the law and does not have proper medical supervision in place.

2) The RN must be properly trained, qualified, and experienced. And don’t simply take their word for it—ask for their license number (all nurses are registered with the state), ask to speak to their supervising physician, and ask for references. These should be readily available.

It depends on your state, but as a general rule, yes, that’s perfectly fine.

Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA) are called “mid-level” providers. This means that they can do many of the same things that a doctor can do provided they are properly trained and experienced. They can see new patients, make diagnoses, develop treatment plans, and even prescribe medication.

Most states do not require the doctor overseeing the NP or PA be on-site, although there are often distance and documentation requirements. As long as the NP or PA is properly trained and experienced, there should be no problem with the spa being staffed by an NP or PA.

But don’t be shy! Ask about the NP’s experience, ask about his or her overseeing doctor, and ask to see all supporting documentation if you have questions. All of this should be readily available and, if it’s not, that’s a red flag you need to take into consideration.

No. Botox is considered a medical treatment, therefore, prior to your initial treatment, the medical spa should offer you an in-person exam by either a doctor, a nurse practitioner (NP), or a physician assistant (PA). While each state treats each procedure differently, we recommend that only an RN, NP, or PA practitioner perform Botox or injectables.

Much confusion exists over who can perform laser hair removal and the laws vary drastically from state to state. A number of states have developed specific laws regarding laser hair removal, so you are strongly encouraged to research your state’s laws relative to this treatment. However, most states have not addressed this issue.

As a general rule, most states consider all laser treatments, including laser hair removal, to be medical treatments. Prior to your initial treatment, the medical spa (Med Spa) should offer you an in-person exam by either a doctor, a registered nurse (RN), a nurse practitioner (NP), or a physician assistant (PA). Once the in-person exam is complete, most states (but not all) allow anyone with proper training, experience, and supervision by a medical professional to perform laser hair removal.

Most medical spa procedures are considered medical in nature. Because of this, most states require, and AmSpa recommends, that prior to your initial treatment, the medical spa (Med Spa) hould offer you an in-person exam by either a doctor, a nurse practitioner (NP), or a physician assistant (PA).

This is an important question as medical treatments trigger specific requirements:
1) face-to-face consult with a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant, to name one–that non-medical treatments do not.

Medical treatment is a treatment that impacts or affects the living tissue of the body. For example, most states believe that any treatment that affects anything outside the dead skin cells, i.e. the epidermis, is considered to be a medical treatment. There is some confusion about whether certain treatments constitute medical treatments, such as microneedling and dermaplaning. Most states do believe these are medical treatments and it’s always better to err on the side of caution. It’s never a bad thing when a doctor performs a treatment or is on site.
