Dr. Oz: Dangers of Medi-Spas
Dr. Oz kicked off his show by talking about the dangers of “medi-spas”, a new walk-in clinic trend that combines a spa with a medical clinic. These medi-spas often do surgery under the care of someone who is not a trained doctor. Some have been injured and some have even died.
Dr. Oz was concerned, so he sent investigative reporter Elisabeth Leamy to find out about these media-spas. These places offer everything from facials and pedicures to more complex procedures like liposuction, botox, and lasers. Women offer a lower cost and convenience, but there’s a serious downside: regulation is low.
