“Texas is a good example to use to get a good idea what med spa law is all about,” says Alex Thiersch, JD, founder and director of the American Med Spa Association. “Texas is one of those states where there’s a lot of opportunity, but you have to be careful.”
DALLAS (PRWEB) October 23, 2018
Researching the legal requirements for opening a medical spa can be daunting given the complexity of state laws, and the headlines of practices from Houston to Dallas that have been closed by the police for an array of non-compliant activity. AmSpa’s legal summary of Texas’ medical aesthetic laws provides compliance insight into:
- Who can inject Botox,
- Who can perform laser treatments (including intense pulsed light, laser skin resurfacing, and laser hair removal),
- Who can own a med spa,
- And much more.
“I joined AmSpa a few years ago because my wife is an attorney, however she doesn’t specialize in what we do and she’s very big on doing this correctly,” says Chris Bailey, owner of Ovation Med Spa in Houston. “Getting connected with AmSpa several years ago has been a great help just keeping track of what the rules are, and from there getting connected with ByrdAdatto to help even in a more detailed with our setup and our compliance has been really helpful.”
The summary, available for AmSpa Basic members, answers over 60 medical spa legal questions, and AmSpa Plus members have access to over 25 additional medical aesthetic legal answers. The online resource is a must-have for medical spa owners, medical directors, practice managers, and practitioners that are looking for medical aesthetics training in the law and a further understanding of the Texas Medical Practice Act. AmSpa’s legal summaries are powered by the Dallas healthcare, business, and aesthetic law firm ByrdAdatto. For more information visit http://www.americanmedspa.org/page/texas.
“Texas is a good example to use to get a good idea what med spa law is all about,” says Alex Thiersch, JD, founder and director of the American Med Spa Association. He cites the Texas laws regarding the corporate practice of medicine, telemedicine, and laser hair removal as examples of how the state is working to quantify principles in the industry that are often hard to interpret. “Texas is one of those states where there’s a lot of opportunity, but you have to be careful.”
