Who Can Perform Microblading in Illinois?

Posted By American Med Spa Association, Monday, November 6, 2017

An exception exists for physicians providing the treatment. If a physician is performing microblading in the practice, that practice does NOT need an establishment license. However, if anyone else in the practice is administering the procedure in addition to the physician, the practice then DOES have to obtain its establishment license for body art.

The Department of Public Health also clarified that this procedure is not included in the scope of practice for aestheticians or cosmetologists in Illinois. This means that if you have an aesthetician or cosmetologist that is otherwise qualified to perform microblading, they must not represent themselves as an aesthetician or cosmetologist while administering the procedure.
