Do I Need a Lawyer to Start a Medical Spa Business?



“Do I Need a Lawyer to Start a Medical Spa Business?”

If you’re opening a medical spa, you definitely need a lawyer because you want to make sure what the guidelines are and what the compliance is for each state in the country. For example, if you’re opening in Florida, the compliance is dramatically different from another state.

In some states a non-doctor can own a spa, and in others they cannot. You need to know who can do injectables, or who can operate a laser and who cannot. You want to make sure you’re doing everything by the book. And even if you’re opening up a day spa, you still need to make sure that you have all your legal documentation, all your employment agreements, proper licensing, etc. There are so many legal documents that are needed, so you definitely need a lawyer to help you.

We get this question all the time. We work with a law firm and lawyer who’s very familiar with the medical spa and day spa industry. We can help you and guide you to understand the laws in your area to make sure that you are doing things by the book.

Allison Avila is the attorney we recommend, and who we refer clients to. I’m super excited to be working with Allison because she has all the legal documentation that you need.

We have all the consent forms, all the agreements, and everything that you might need all in one document. We have partnered with her to offer members of our community all the legal documentations they need to make it easy on them and save them time and money.

You can reach out to Allison. She works with Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani. This firm operates in all 50 states. No matter where you live, you’ll be able to contact Allison and she can give you all the guidelines you need. So that’s the great thing about working with a company and group of attorneys like her and her firm. They’re very familiar with the medical spa and spa industry and they can help you!

Once we have the product with all the legal forms available to purchase, you’ll be able to find it in the shop at The forms will be available on a USB. You can download them, customize them, put your logo on, and you’ll be ready to use them.

Don’t make the mistake of not checking with an attorney before you actually open because you want to make sure that you have everything in proper positioning and you have dotted all your I’s and crossed all your T’s.

You can also reach Allyson by phone (914) 777-2211 or by email at and she’ll be able to help you.

I hope I answered your question, Robert. If you need any business help, you can always reach out to us and we’re more than happy to help you.
