When medi-spas first appeared, spurred by advances in laser technology, they were largely unregulated. Now, many states are requiring medi-spas to be associated with a physician as an owner, supervisor or contractor. Offers are being made, and physicians of many medical specialties are responding. It may seem like an attractive proposition, but it comes with many provisos and administrative burdens of its own. This monograph is directed at physicians associated with or considering becoming associated with a medi-spa.
Upon completion, participants should be able to:
• Access state laws and state medical board rules about physician roles in medi-spas.
• Perform a risk assessment of a medi-spa.
• Institute policies and procedures to manage physician risk in a medi-spa setting.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
