Medical Spa Laws: 2022 Legislative Session

AmSpa believes that it is important to the medical aesthetic industry to have a clear, easy to follow legal framework without unnecessary costs or burdens. Therefore, we support efforts that reduce non-compliant and untrained practices, efforts that responsibly expand licensed scope of practice and autonomy, and efforts that streamline and reduce regulatory burdens on medical spas.
