Both. The practice of cosmetology is within TDLR’s jurisdiction, and the practice of medicine is within the Texas Medical Board’s jurisdiction. An esthetician is only authorized to perform cosmetology services at a facility licensed by TDLR as a cosmetology salon or facial specialty salon. Therefore, if an esthetician performs acts under an esthetician license at a place of business, then the business must hold a TDLR cosmetology salon or specialty salon license. Please consult with the Texas Medical Board to learn about their jurisdiction in regulating the practice of medicine.
