Comment from AmSpa:


Opening any business involves numerous complications that are difficult to predict and prepare for, but opening a medical spa is significantly more complicated than creating most other types of businesses. After all, a medical spa requires high-level business acumen, a thorough understanding of local medical rules and regulations, and dedicated, properly trained employees in order to succeed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When opening a medical spa, you will need to consider developing a business plan, learning about compliance, and planning for the future. What else do you need to succeed? Comment below! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These topics and many more are addressed at AmSpa’s Medical Aesthetics Boot Camps. If you are preparing to open a practice, it’s certainly worth your while to attend one near you.

Comment from AmSpa:


Monday #medspalaw reminder for off-label use in medical spas .. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Off-label use can be a particularly tricky issue in medical spas, since non-doctors are sometimes the ones administering these treatments. Everyone in a medical aesthetic practice must understand that off-label use is a medical decision that is to be made only by a doctor. For example, a nurse administering an off-label pharmaceutical must be following a doctor’s order, and the decision needs to be established following proper delegation protocols. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If a doctor uses good judgment backed by research and is forthcoming with patients about why he or she wants to administer that drug in a manner that is not directly approved by the FDA, off-label use should result in no legal issues. However, obtaining patient consent is vitally important in cases such as these, so doctors should consult with their healthcare attorneys to verify that the consent they obtain will shield them from potential action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In many cases, doctors who provide off-label treatments are simply attempting to help their patients. Providing them the leeway to do so has led to important medical breakthroughs and changed countless lives for the better. As long as doctors take the proper precautions, off-label use is perfectly acceptable from a legal standpoint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What legal questions do you have regarding off-label use?

Comment from AmSpa:


Many states do not necessarily require a physician to be on site at the med spa while the treatment is being administered, provided that (i) the physician (or nurse practitioner or physician assistant) has examined the patient first, (ii) the physician is immediately available by telephone or other electronic means to respond to questions or emergencies, and, most importantly, (iii) the practitioner who is performing the treatment is trained, experienced, and qualified. But regardless of who’s performing the treatment, there should always be an RN on site, at a minimum, to oversee the procedures. Each state has its own set of regulations about on-site supervision. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ AmSpa members have access to legal summaries of the laws regulating medical spas in their state, as well as an annual complimentary compliance consultation with the @byrdadattolaw firm.

Comment from AmSpa:


In most states, only a physician or a physician-owned corporation can legally own a medical practice. However, non-doctors can participate in a medical spa via a management services organization (MSO) and, while such an arrangement still hinges on the medical practice of a physician, it allows others a very significant role in the day-to-day operations of a medical aesthetic practice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ MSOs have actually been used for many years by entrepreneurs to form management companies for medical organizations as large as hospitals and managed care facilities, so it makes a certain amount of sense that creating an MSO for a medical spa would be relatively common. However, it is very important that you consult an attorney who has experience setting up MSOs if you want to enter into this sort of arrangement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Members with AmSpa get a complimentary compliance consultation with the @byrdadattolaw law firm.

Comment from AmSpa:


❕Important news alert! According to the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH), vampire facials administered at VIP Spa in Albuquerque have caused the transmission of the HIV virus to at least two customers. The spa, which was operated by an aesthetician, was shut down in September 2018 after an inspection found that needles were being improperly handled and disposed of, creating the possibility of the transmission of bloodborne diseases. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In New Mexico, drawing blood and performing microneedling are both considered to be medical procedures and must be performed by an appropriately trained and skilled person under the supervision of a physician or nurse practitioner, including physician assistants either in collaboration with or under supervision of a physician, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and trained medical assistants. Aestheticians, such as the person who operated VIP Spa, are not licensed to perform or provide oversight for these procedures. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The medical aesthetics industry is thriving, but this is exactly the sort of thing that could kill it. All over the country, unqualified people are doing things they shouldn't be doing, not following the rules or being safe, and potentially causing incredibly serious health issues and even deaths. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Situations such as these are exposing the seamy underbelly of the industry, and while legislators struggle to catch up with the issues that are emerging, compliant providers may well get caught up in any kind of blowback that results from incidents such as these. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As we’ve discussed here before, we have to do better. AmSpa is currently working to develop a set of standards that will help the medical aesthetic industry govern itself and provide patients with reliably safe, satisfying treatment experiences. Stay tuned to this space to learn more about this effort and what you can do to participate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag an injector bestie who needs to read this! 💉 continue reading on the blog, link in bio!

“I would recommend this event for anyone who’s thinking of or even entertaining the idea, of starting a med spa, or for any plastic surgeon that has that little part of their business. Even if it’s incorporated into their whole practice, this is really important.” @doctorjane ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join us for our Medical & Aesthetic Boot Camp EXTRA June 1-3 in Asheville.
