Buying a Medical Spa - What You Need to Know

Medical spas provide treatments that require the supervision of a licensed physician. These treatments include Botox injections, injectable dermal fillers, skin tightening, surgical fat reduction, laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments,and much more. Day spas, unlike medical spas, offer services aimed at relaxation and comfort including massages and facials.

In California, the supervising, licensed physical must own at least 51% of the business which must be licensed as a Professional Medical Corporation.

There are extensive laws that apply to the ownership and operation of a medical spa. Buyers are cautioned to obtain legal assistance when making an acquisition of a medical spa. The Medical Board of California website contains information that all potential buyers should read.

Insurance is a major consideration when opening a medical spa. Be certain to consult with an independent business broker who can shop for the most inclusive policy at the most competitive cost.
