Alex Thiersch spoke at the first International Master Course on Aging Science (IMCAS) Americas 2017 conference in Cancun, Mexico held from March 24, 2017 through March 26, 2017. More than 700 people from 50 countries attended the event dedicated to bringing together plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and other aesthetic practitioners from across the Americas to share knowledge and techniques on this growing field.
He gave three talks regarding the legal realities of owning, operating, and working in a medical spa (medspa) which included:
- Ten things your aesthetic attorney should tell you about your practice;
- Pros and Cons of becoming a medical director for a med spa; and
- Caution with Social Media: what you need to know from a legal point of view
The medical aesthetic industry is growing rapidly around the globe with new procedures and treatment advancements continuously coming out. While technology often outpaces the law, it is important to set up your practice as compliant as possible to be confident that you will be on the right side of regulations.
