A Delray Beach spa owner is facing a charge of practicing medicine without a license after city police said she agreed to give an undercover officer a testosterone injection without being certified to do so.

Jennifer Aspen owns Mermaid’s Skin and Wellness, which offers services such as IV drips and Botox and hormone injections by “certified & licensed professionals,” according to its website. Yet a Florida Department of Health investigator found that Aspen – the spa’s only full-time employee – is a certified nursing assistant and not allowed to administer any of those treatments, said Brad Dalton, DOH spokesman.
