Multi-state Executive Legal Guides

AmSpa's Multi-state Executive Legal Guides provide an overview of medical spa laws across the country. Deciding which states to open in or expand into can be a challenge given the vast differences in regulations, but these quick reference guides are your solution.

New in 2024!
Executive Legal Guides now include compliance overviews on lasers and telemedicine. They also include the full Treatment Delegation Table, outlining who can perform treatments in each state.

A Legal Compliance Digest for Your Multi-state Expansion

As your brand scales it can become difficult to chart a path through the legal landscape of multiple states. For medical aesthetic practices with a regional or national footprint, use these guides to understand the general legal framework wherever you plan to grow.

What's the difference between an executive legal guide and a legal summary?

These Multi-state Executive Legal Guides are designed for those investigating opening or expanding into multiple states across the country. They are annual subscriptions that do not require an AmSpa membership to purchase and offer a snapshot of the compliance landscape in a particular state. There is no limit to the number of Executive Legal Guides you may purchase.

AmSpa's state-by-state legal summaries are designed for our members to be able to take a deep dive into the laws and regulations in their state. The legal summaries are a resource for medical spa practices to operate in a legally compliant fashion, and answer 31 (Basic) or 103 (Plus) legal questions. Members get one state for free and can purchase summaries for up to 3 additional states.
