AmSpa Launches State Laws & Regulations

Posted By American Med Spa Association, Tuesday, July 16, 2013

AmSpa is excited to announce the formal launch of state-specific laws and regulations on its website. In partnership with local health care attorneys in over 30 states, AmSpa’s website now offers members  summaries of state-specific laws and regulations affecting med spas and laser centers across the country.
According to Alex Thiersch,  Founder and Director of AmSpa, "med spa owners and industry professionals have complained for years about a lack of information relative to what med spas can and cannot do.  It was often impossible to locate even basic information on regulatory issues because the laws in each state are confusing and difficult to find.”
But now, Amspa’s state law summaries, found here, provide the answers to questions such as "who can own a med spa”, "who can inject Botox,”  "does a physician need to see every patient prior to treatment?” and many other relevant industry questions. AmSpa has partnered with attorneys who are familiar with the laws in each state and the state law summaries are posted in an easy-to-understand format, using common sense language without confusing "legalese.”
AmSpa currently has summaries of 8 states posted on its website – Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, and Wisconsin – with over twenty more states currently in development. Most, if not all, will be summarized within the next thirty days. Industry professionals can click on their particular state and find a list of commonly asked regulatory questions, dedicated resources such as local industry news, legislative updates, and webinars prepared by industry professionals in that state.
