Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
The American Med Spa Association (AmSpa) announces its one day comprehensive medical spa program focusing on legal and regulatory issues for Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York in Philadelphia on September 20th.
This program was specifically designed for physicians, medical spa owners/managers, nurses and/or others that work within the aesthetic industry. A concierge staff training track will be held simultaneously for aestheticians, front desk professionals, laser technicians and spa managers so that staff can be included in this one of a kind industry workshop.
The workshop will provide up-to-date information on Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York laser and medical spa regulations, insight from successful med spa owners on building a successful practice, and cutting edge information on marketing and branding a medical spa or aesthetic practice.
One highlight of the workshop will be a roundtable of successful med spa owners entitled “The Secrets of My Success.” This exclusive session will allow attendees to hear from some of the most successful med spa and laser center owners/directors on what they did to succeed in their practice. Also made available for attendees is the CME monograph Risk Management for the Practice Physician, an enduring material certified nationally for 5.5 Category I CME hours.
The main goal of the program, according to AmSpa's Founder, Alex Thiersch, is to help med spa owners and prospective owners maximize their profits. “We’ve created the most dynamic program available for medical spas,” Thiersch said. “Attendees will hear from some of the most successful med spa owners around on how they built their practice from the ground up.”
AmSpa, a National Association of med spas and medical aesthetic industry professionals, has presented legal and regulatory updates at numerous conferences across the country. “There is a vast need for information on what medical spas can and cannot do,” said Thiersch. “The reception we have received has been overwhelming, and we have plans for Southwest and Midwest regional workshops this fall”.
A consistent compliant heard by AmSpa is the lack of formal instruction available for support staff. The staff training class during this workshop was formed in direct response to those concerns. Training front desk staff, aestheticians, assistants, and support staff on how to answer the phone, discuss products with patients, get clients in the door, turn consults into treatments and up-sell. In addition to basic instruction, participants will run through role-playing sessions involving phone calls, difficult clients, and product sales. This is the type of training the industry has been clamoring for and you don’t want your staff to miss out!
“We’re very excited to offer this workshop,” said Alex Thiersch, Founder and Director of AmSpa. “The addition of staff training to the much-needed updates on medical spa law will make this, we believe, the most unique and valuable workshop in the industry.”
The cost for attending the workshop is $225; AmSpa members receive a $30 discount. Click HERE to register or call (312) 981-0993.
