Recent statistics from the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa) are indicative of the continued growth of the medical spa industry in the United States. AmSpa, an organization created to provide comprehensive, relevant and timely legal and business resources for medical spas and medical aesthetic practices throughout the United States, has experienced significant increases in both membership and traffic during the first six months of 2016.

“The AmSpa organization has experienced a 20% growth in its memberships, as well as a 32% increase in its web traffic since December of 2015,” says AmSpa founder and director, Alex Thiersch, JD. “This surge of interest in AmSpa is indicative of the expansion and advancement of the aesthetics industry as a whole. New technology, younger patients and a desire to avoid surgery, among other motivations, have led to an explosion of new consumers in the medical spa industry.”

Thiersch also indicates that this boost in consumer interest has resulted in an industry on track to reach new levels in the coming months. “We’re seeing hundreds of millions of dollars from entrepreneurs, non-core physicians, and investors pouring into the industry. The number of medical spas and laser centers grows every day, with entrepreneurs from many disciplines wanting a piece of the pie,” says Thiersch. “The medical spa industry isn’t like most other cash-and-carry businesses, however. Medical spas are considered medical entities and, as such, it is critical that they operate both legally and safely while still appealing to clients and bringing in profit.”

Because medical spas are a specialized business type, according to Thierch: “These new market entrants need significant training.”

This is where AmSpa comes in. As the No. 1 leader in medical spa and medical aesthetics education and resources, one of AmSpa’s core missions is to keep business owners up to date with the information they need to succeed in a legal, compliant and profitable way through its nationwide boot camps and workshops.

“Not only do we strive to provide a solid business foundation for new and existing medical spas, our main goal is to ensure the industry is compliant and safe,” explains Thiersch. “Attendees of our boot camps will not only leave with the necessary tools to build and operate a profitable medical spa, they’ll also know how to do it the right way.”

AmSpa will host two medical spa boot camps this fall featuring crucial information for those in the medical spa and medical aesthetics business. Known for offering the latest, cutting-edge education, AmSpa workshops are sought out over the country as top industry events to attend.
