Protecting your business in the complex medical spa industry
The beauty supply industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that has been booming since the early 90's. Millennials and baby boomers alike are investing in raw, organic, and ‘clean’ products to support their long-term health.
The medical spa industry continues to grow at a rapid pace. Given the speed of growth, businesses operating in this space face unique challenges.
Medical spa businesses must keep pace with consumer demand for services, this requires a unique mix of professionals under one roof. Medical spas might include core and non-core physicians, nurses, entrepreneurs, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
Services provided by salons and spas include techniques from the medical, cosmetic, natural and holistic health spaces. Acne treatments, floatation therapy, waxing, botox, nutrition services, hair and skin care, physiotherapy and more can be available. Additionally, products used in the medical spa can incorporate everything from natural to synthetic ingredients.
Due to complex and strict regulatory requirements, the industry is working together to evolve the profession safely and profitably.
