Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
“We are thrilled and delighted to be a part of this program,” said Thiersch, http://www.thierschlaw.com, who often speaks on legal and regulatory issues related to med spas and laser centers. “The laws governing med spas are often unknown and are difficult to find. This program will provide the med spa industry with valuable information on what can and cannot be done in a med spa.”
Thiersch, who founded The American Med Spa Association (AmSpa) http://www.americanmedspa.org in early 2013, will give presentations on fee-splitting and med spa ownership (often referred to as the “corporate practice of medicine”), and will also speak on the laws related to non-competition agreements in the medical setting. These agreements, often referred to as “non-competes,” prevent former employees from working for competitors, and are becoming increasingly prevalent in the med spa industry.
Attorney Jeffery Cohen, http://www.thefloridahealthcarelawfirm.com, a health law attorney in Florida with extensive experience representing med spas in that state, will present on the specific rules and regulations affecting aesthetic practices in Florida. Cohen will cover topics such as who can own a Florida med spa, how much physician supervision is required, and which medical professionals can inject Botox. “Florida has unique laws when it comes to med spas,” said Thiersch. “Mr. Cohen’s presentation is a must for any current med spa owner or anyone looking to break into the industry.”
