Hyaluronic Acid Injections Done by Cosmetologist?

Can a cosmetologist with magisterium tytle from a university (aesthetic cosmetology) perform hyaluronic acid injections? hyaluronic acid is not a drug or toxin like botox and just like tatoo artists or beauticians performing permanent make up they touch skin with needles. Please provide answer by refering to supporting law regulation that forbids such treatments to be performed by cosmetologist (sorry if my grammar is incorrect - english is not my native language)

While laws vary from state to state.  As of this writing I do not know of any state that allows cosmetologists to inject Hyaluronidase.

Nooooooooooo, these should be handled by licensed and trained physicians only! (Some trained nurses do injections too, but always under the licensure of a physician.) No one else should do these types of injections, period.
