How Do I Pay My Med Spa Providers and Staff Legally

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 19, 2018

By Alex R. Thiersch, JD, Founder/Director of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa)

Proper medical spa payment and compensation structure is one of the lesser known legal issues that successful medical spa owners MUST be familiar with. From a business standpoint tying employee pay to performance assures that a medical aesthetic practice can remain profitable while also allowing providers to maximize their earning potential. In retail, salespeople are often incentivized with commission—they receive a percentage of the sales they make that meet certain conditions set by their employers. The rationale is that when salespeople are given the opportunity to earn more money, they will work harder.

However, a medical spa is not a retail outlet. 

Despite its superficial resemblance to a salon or traditional spa, a medical spa has to play by a different set of rules and answer to different authorities, because its employees administer medical treatments. And in most states, if medical spa owners are paying employees commission, they are engaging in an illegal practice known as fee-splitting. It is important for medical spa owners and operators to understand this issue and its consequences in order to avoid big trouble.

The controversy

In most states, a patient who receives a medical treatment—such as many of the services provided at medical spas—is required to provide payment to a physician or a physician-owned corporation. (This doctrine is known as the “corporate practice of medicine.”) If these physicians or corporations give a percentage of that payment to a non-physician who was responsible for securing the patient’s business, they have engaged in fee-splitting.

AmSpa members can check their state legal summary to see if their state observes the corporate practice of medicine.

This practice is somewhat common at medical spas, and it typically doesn’t represent any sort of shady attempt to practice unlicensed medicine. The physicians who operate these establishments simply wish to reward the people who bring business to the practice. However, the fact remains that in many states it is illegal to engage in this practice, and doing so places both parties to the transaction at risk.

The consequences

If physicians are found to be engaging in fee-splitting in a state in which it is illegal, they could face the suspension or revocation of their license, as well as a significant fine. What’s more, the staff members who receive the commission payment are also subject to a fine. So if you are an aesthetician, registered nurse, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or laser technician who is being paid commission, it is certainly in your best interest to find out if fee-splitting is illegal in your state; if it is, stop receiving these payments. If you are a physician who is giving commissions in a state in which fee-splitting is illegal, you should cease doing so immediately. 

This does not mean that medical spa employees cannot be awarded extra compensation, however. Physicians can establish structured bonus plans–such as the medical spa compensation plan in the AmSpa store–that can provide employees incentives and are perfectly legal in the eyes of authorities. These types of programs can be very lucrative for employees, and they will prevent all involved from incurring crippling penalties that can alter lives and end careers.

Also, if your medical spa engages in the practice of giving gift cards to clients, be advised that this can also be viewed as a form of fee-splitting, because these cards represent payment that is not made directly to a physician or physician-owned corporation. 

An exception
Viewed through an impartial lens, it would seem that using a deal site such as Groupon or LivingSocial to drum up business would represent a form of fee-splitting. This is because medical spa vouchers sold through these services—from which the service receives a percentage of the sale, a lot like a commission—can be used by customers to purchase medical treatments. However, several states have enacted laws that permit this, provided the medical outlet maintains a high level of transparency during the process. Again, check with your local health care attorney to find out the specifics of the regulations regarding deal sites in your state.

It is worth noting, however, that even if using deal sites in the manner described above is legal where your business operates, some in the industry consider such arrangements to be unethical. As such, you may be better off negotiating a flat fee with Groupon or LivingSocial instead of paying it a percentage. It is always better for a business to try to stay away from morally questionable practices, even if you are forgoing some money by doing so.

Med Spa Marketing: Testimonials & Reviews Are the Only Way to Market Your Practice

Posted By Administration, Saturday, April 14, 2018

By Alex R. Thiersch, JD, Founder/Director of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa)

When finding and attracting patients to a medical spa practice, the best med spa marketing tools you can ask for are reviews and testimonials from existing patients. Positive reviews don’t just grow on trees, though. You have to actively cultivate them in your everyday processes throughout every part of your business.

I love the above cartoon because it’s so true. People are most vocal when they are angry and unsatisfied, not when they are happy. Think about it: If you have a positive experience somewhere, chances are you’ll leave happy, maybe tell your spouse or a friend, and then you move on. Even if you think you’ll circle back and leave a review complimenting the good service, let’s be honest—chances are you won’t. It just doesn’t work that way psychologically. Even though we know we should do the right thing and post a positive comment, most of the time it doesn’t happen. You blink and a week has gone by, and next thing you know—out of sight out of mind.
 
But if you have a bad experience? That’s a different story. After some truly bad experiences, I’ve actually sat down and written letters to management. Not just an email or a post on a site, but an actual letter. On paper and stuff. People are much more likely to be vocal, motivated and industrious when they’ve had a bad experience than when they’ve had a good one. Again, it’s psychology. And in the med spa business this is even more important because we’re dealing with peoples’ appearance, and let’s be honest—there are some craaaaaazy people in this industry.
 
This is why it is so crucial that medical spas make collecting positive testimonials and reviews a part of their processes and systems. The best medical spas are not just diligent about this, they’re downright militant. Every person on the staff is part of this process, from the providers to the front desk staff. If a patient mentions that he or she is a happy and satisfied, it is the duty of the entire medical spa to ensure that a testimonial is taken and the patient knows exactly how to access the practice’s Yelp, Google+, Facebook, and RealSelf pages.
 
And you absolutely must get both testimonials for your website and positive reviews on all the applicable review sites. Testimonials on your website are a must because everyone—even if he or she is given a glowing verbal referral from a friend—will go to your website before they book. That’s just a fact. Positive reviews increase the likelihood that you’ll book a patient, because patients also always check out your reviews; perhaps more importantly, the more positive reviews you have, the less likely a negative review will stand out. And if you’re in business long enough, you’ll get a bad review. That’s also a fact.

Keep in mind that, while reviews and testimonials are very important, med spas are subject to strict advertising requirements and you need to be careful with what you post. Also, HIPAA/patient privacy is a potential issue with respect to reviews. Both should be dealt with carefully and med spas should always have a healthcare attorney take a look at their website to make sure they are being fully compliant. As a reminder, AmSpa members receive a complimentary 20-minute legal consultation with our partner law firm ByrdAdatto.

So to my medical spa friends, it’s vital that you create a specific process for getting testimonials and reviews. Don’t just tell your team it needs to be done—establish a protocol and hold them accountable. It’s part of their job, after all, and if you don’t do it, the entire practice will suffer. Use the front desk staff as the gatekeepers—no happy patient leaves without providing a referral. Track the number of referrals each team member gets, and reward each month’s top performer with a spa treatment, dinner, or night out.

Closing the Loop: Valuing and Selling Your Medical Spa

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, April 4, 2018

By Alex R. Thiersch, JD, Founder/Director of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa)

When a medical spa opens, its owners are probably not immediately thinking about selling it. However, medical spa owners and operators should always consider the value of their practices, so that when the time comes that they do want to sell, they can get more out of it than they put into it.

“When you’re looking at anywhere between a $250,000 and a $1 million investment to start up a med spa, I think it’s important before you go into that type of investment—whether you’re borrowing the money or financing the money or taking it out of savings or whatever—you really need to look at a return on investment and you really need to look at what your exit strategy is going to be,” says Louis Frisina, a medical spa industry pioneer who currently works as an investor, entrepreneur and business advisor, and who will be presenting “Closing the Loop: Valuing and Selling Your Medical Spa” at AmSpa’s Hawaii Next! Level Leadership event in Maui, Hawaii, on June 13 - 15, 2018. (Editor’s note: See the whole agenda and register here: http://www.americanmedspa.org/general/custom.asp?page=HINextLevel2018) “The whole concept behind [the presentation] can be summed up in one line: What am I doing today to position my company for sale tomorrow?”

Frisina has worked in the world of business finance for more than 30 years, and has been on the cutting-edge of aesthetics industry entrepreneurship for almost as long as the industry has existed. “Closing the Loop” will help medical aesthetics industry professionals consider how what they do with their practices make them more or less attractive to prospective buyers.

“I’ve visited close to 2,000 aesthetic medical practices around the world in the past 20 years, and I have been—and continue to be—involved with what I call the best practices out there; the top one or two percent in the country in terms of medical spas and also aesthetic medical practices, which could be a med spa that’s bolted onto a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist,” Frisina says. “With all of the experience that I’ve had, I’ve been able to figure out what best practices do to earn top dollar some years later when they’re ready to sell.”

The first part of the presentation will cover the characteristics of attractive medical spas.

“If you want to position your practice today to optimize the most that you can get in the future, you’ve got to be looking at what best practices did,” Frisina says. “Those marketing, operational, and human resource activities and things that they’ve done in their med spas that have led them to get the best price they possibly can.”

The second section of “Closing the Loop” will help medical aesthetics professionals determine what their businesses are worth. If a medical spa invests in the things discussed in part of the presentation, they can command a higher sale price than those that do not.

“They’re running it like a business and they’re optimizing their business for success today,” Frisina says. “When they’ve done those things, they’ve basically created a scenario where they will get the best price when and if they’re ready to sell.”

The third and final section of the presentation looks at a medical spa’s value from a prospective buyer’s point of view. What you see as your practice’s value might be very different from what a buyer sees.

“Because I’m on the side of both buying and selling companies, from the point of view of a buyer like me, acquiring on behalf of a client, what am I looking at?” Frisina explains. “This involves a bunch of financial information that I require—I look at three years of historical tax returns, I look at a number of financially related issues relative to their income statement, relative to their balance sheet. Because, ultimately, if I’m going to pay them a price for their practice, I have to get that money back at some point, hopefully over a five-year period of time.”

AmSpa’s Next! Level Leadership event will take place at the The Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in Maui from June 13 to 15, 2018. Click here to learn more and register today.

Medical Spa Success Means Facing Your Fears

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 30, 2018

By Alex R. Thiersch, JD, Founder/Director of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa)

I have a mantra that I say to myself often—“Do that which you are afraid to do.” I didn’t always think this way; in fact, facing my fear is something I struggled with at the beginning of my career and had to take steps to overcome. Everybody has fear, but if you walk toward the things that cause you to be afraid, you can go farther than you previously imagined.

In AmSpa’s latest Medical Spa Insider podcast, industry experts Louis Frisina and Tim Sawyer spend some time talking about how they overcame fears early in their careers, and how it was one of their keys to success. “What happens with anything in life that you fear,” said Sawyer, “once you conquer that, that becomes your nirvana. Because you walked in fear of it, you overcame it, and now you own it.”



Most of the time—in business and in life—you will find success if you can overcome the things that make you afraid. People often are afraid to open their own businesses, because they’re scared of the financial investment and relatively high rate of attrition. They’re scared to pursue a particular marketing angle because it costs too much money or it goes against traditional marketing tactics.

Sometimes, when you have an idea or are presented with an opportunity, you begin to pursue it and fear takes over. It causes you to pause. You have a gut feeling that tells you that the direction that frightens you is the right way to go, but for whatever reason, you’re disinclined to make that commitment. It’s that one second when you’re getting ready to step into uncharted territory and you suddenly second-guess everything that you know to be true. When you’re in business, you need to overcome that fear. In my experience, most success comes on the other side of it.

Entrepreneurs who can recognize the moment when that fear takes place tend to be more successful than those who can’t. Many times, people are so egotistical or ignorant that they don’t even identify this moment when it occurs, so they blindly move in a different direction. A good businessperson, on the other hand, will understand that it’s a project worth pursuing, even though he or she is a bit afraid of the commitment it will require, and take the necessary steps to actually work through it. 

This can be the difference between success and failure, and it’s a very thin line. Those who waver just a bit and wait to see how things develop before pursuing a course of action likely will never convince themselves that there’s a good time to act.

In almost every industry, you can identify the people who have the guts to walk toward the thing that frightens them. They put in the time and work it takes to overcome the fear in their minds and the objections of others, and in many cases, they end up becoming much more successful than the people who were telling them to give up on a particular pursuit.

At AmSpa’s Boot Camps, we teach medical aesthetics professionals how to succeed in this industry. Facing your fear is a big part of that, because there is so much competition that you really need to be determined and take that scary step into the unknown, because if you’re in it, you need to be in it to win it. You can’t go halfway, because there is no doubt that if you don’t pursue a new and exciting direction at your medical spa, one of your competitors will.

Click here to learn more about our upcoming Boot Camps and to register to join us at one. We can’t make facing your fear any easier for you, but we can help you learn how to recognize turning points and address them with the confidence you need to move forward in the medical aesthetics industry.

AmSpa Member Spotlight with Rejuvenate Med Spa Founder, Christina Imes

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 23, 2018

 

AmSpa Founder, Alex Thiersch, interviews Founder and Operator of Rejuvenate Med Spa in Oak Brook, IL., Christina Imes, about how she opened her med spa after attending one of AmSpa's Med Spa & Aesthetic Boot Camps.

Get to know Rejuvenate Med Spa Founder, Christina Imes

"When I was a little girl I loved to play board games all the time with my friends. Before they would arrive I would take all the pieces out of the box, and have the game ready. I'm not one for reading directions entirely, so each time we played the game would be different. I basically made it up as we went. Each slide, marble and ball trap in the Mouse Trap game representing whatever I wanted for that day. Each little carload of pink and blue pegs in the game of Life meaning something different every time we played. Of course, some of my friends had played these same games at their homes, and they did read the directions thoroughly. I was typically able to convince my friends that my way was better, and besides I was in charge.

Not until recently had I thought about how much one can learn about their personality from owning and running a business. Many of my employees would be able to tell you for example that I make decisions quickly (very impatient); I have a hard time admitting I'm wrong; and I'm much more of a big-picture thinker. Oftentimes personality traits are divided into good and bad. I realize that sometimes traits can be described as bad for some and good for others. 

In the 2 ½ years that Rejuvenate Med Spa has been open I will tell you that impatience and the need to be right all the time are not so great for my business. Impatience led me to purchasing a $3,000 software program before totally doing my due diligence. The software turned out to be garbage, and the investment was a waste! I hired an esthetician not long ago even though my business partner told me he thought it was a mistake. "No, no I said. You wait and see. She will be great." I too had a sinking feeling it wasn't going to work, but my ego got in the way. Fortunately I did fire her after only a couple of months. However, once again money wasted.  Weaknesses are hard to run from when you own a business. They weave themselves into every aspect of your business if you're not careful, and become glaringly obvious when they affect the bottom line.

With 2017 just ending, I was writing down my goals for the med spa. I began to look back at the mistakes I made in 2017, and realized they all stemmed from my individual, distinctive character. My class at Goldman Sachs pushed me to hire people who are good at things that I find challenging or unrewarding, but I need constant reminders to be conscious of these behaviors that can be detrimental to my business. Personality traits define us and can be very challenging to change. Some psychologists believe personality characteristics largely stop changing around the age of 30. 

I surround myself with friends and employees who hold me accountable, and feel comfortable enough to come to me when I do something they don't love. I won't say I always agree with them, but it definitely helps knowing I have people in place who care about the success of my business as much as I do. Revenues in 2017 were up 40%, so we are doing something right! Yoga and meditation have also been excellent tools for me in learning to release the patterns of the past.

I hope my fellow scholars are able to find tools that allow you to stay focused on your strengths. I also wish that your businesses continue to prosper no matter how many little pink and blue pegs are in your car."

Med Spa Best Practices: Measuring and Tracking Your Success

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 21, 2018

By Alex R. Thiersch, JD, Founder/Director of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa)

Success in the medical aesthetics business depends on a number of factors, from effective marketing to efficient employees to reliable equipment. However, if a medical spa is not properly tracking everything that is going on at the practice, it is impossible for its owners and operators to truly understand what is going on there.

Good medical spas track everything. Simply put, if you can’t track, you can’t measure; if you can’t measure, you don’t know what’s working and what’s not; and if you don’t know what’s working and what’s not, you can’t make informed decisions when it comes time to determine what to do next.

Essentially, if you don’t understand how and why something is working, it’s not really working for you. There’s no way its success can inform your future decisions, because you don’t have enough information to tell you what’s actually going on.

For example, say an aesthetician is earning significantly more money than other employees, despite the fact that he or she is providing exactly the same services as everybody else in the practice. Is it something he or she is doing differently than everybody else in the practice? Is it related to the hours he or she works? Is it just plain old dumb luck? If you’re not tracking everything that happens at your practice, you have no way of knowing, and that puts your business at an enormous disadvantage.

Some of the factors tracked by top medical spas include:
Dollars per hour per treatment per provider;
Dollars per hour per provider;
Margin per treatment per provider;
Return on investment per provider;
Return on investment per equipment;
Conversion rates; and
Return on investment on email campaigns, marketing campaigns, social media.

This might seem like micromanagement, but I promise you that no effective business, medical spa or otherwise, leaves these aspects of their enterprise up to chance. For example, if you find that the laser equipment you purchased isn’t providing the return on investment you’d expected, you won’t be tempted to spend more money in that area of your practice because you’ve discovered that it probably isn’t worth it. 

Likewise, if you find that a direct mail campaign is significantly more effective than a Facebook campaign despite the former costing much more to conduct, you can allocate your marketing resources in a way that brings your practice the maximum possible return on its investment.

At the American Medical Spa Association’s Medical Spa & Aesthetic Boot Camps, we spend virtually the entire two days showing attendees different ways to track and measure all aspects of their businesses, including retail sales, medical treatment, and marketing. Join us at our next Boot Camp, which takes place at the Marina del Rey Marriott in Marina del Rey, California, on April 7 and 8, 2018. If you can’t make it to L.A., consider joining us at one of our other Boot Camps this year—we’ll be in Denver in May, Dallas in July, Boston in September, Nashville in October, and Orlando in December.

Your business can’t improve if you don’t know what’s working and what’s not. You have to track, measure, review, change, and repeat. AmSpa can help, so we hope to see you soon.

Long-Term Medical Spa Market Research: Generation Z

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 7, 2018

By Alex R. Thiersch, JD, Founder/Director of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa)

The industry impact of Millennials as medical spa patients is just beginning to be felt, as “The Selfie Generation” currently accounts for about 20% of aesthetic patients. As this demographic ages it promises to offer a lot of potential clients as the growth of social media has led to increased comfort with the idea of medical aesthetic treatments, causing the average age of first treatments to plummet for many procedures. For all of the possibilities presented by this age group, the digital natives of Generation Z present even an greater opportunity in the long run.

Generation Z is typically defined as beginning with people born in the mid-to-late 1990s, so the oldest Zers are currently in their late teens. It may be difficult for many of us to imagine, but most of Generation Z cannot remember a time before 9/11. They grew up in a world where the U.S. has always been at war, where a crippling recession caused by corporate greed cost millions of people their jobs and livelihoods, and where deep-seated political turmoil is a fact of life. 

They’ve been raised on technology and know how to use social media more effectively than anyone else, but while Millennials are (probably unfairly) seen as being more passive and self-interested, Generation Z seems determined to fix the problems caused by those who came before. It also is worth pointing out that Generation Z is a larger group than the Millennials.

Of course, it also should be noted that they also have very short attention spans, and their independent mind-sets can sometimes lead to problems, but these quirks are part of the package and, sooner or later, everyone is going to need to learn how to deal with it.

In the context of the medical aesthetic industry—and every other business, quite frankly—it is important to learn what matters to Generation Zers. Today, the majority of marketing is still directed at Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials, and for good reason, since these groups are the ones that are earning (or have earned) money to spend. But in the very near future, Generation Z is going to be flexing its financial muscle and, when it does, it’s going to make an enormous impact on the economy.  Therefore, it is up to businesspeople to do whatever they can to find out how best to market to Zers.

Unfortunately, that information isn’t necessarily available yet, since Generation Z is only now beginning to enter the workforce en masse, but medical spa owners and operators should at the very least be aware of the seismic shift that may be on the way and do whatever they can to keep track of emerging trends in Gen Z business. AmSpa will of course be following this story from a medical aesthetic perspective, and you should check out publications such as Inc to learn about broader business trends.

Businesspeople underestimate these young people at their peril, so be sure to learn all you can about them.

Letter From the Director: Thank You!

Posted By Aly Boeckh, Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Updated: Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Alex Thiersch here, director of AmSpa. I’m back from AmSpa’s first ever Medical Spa Show and, after sleeping for 3 days straight, I wanted to reach out to all of you and say THANK YOU to each of you who attended. The turnout and feedback we received was absolutely overwhelming and I couldn’t be prouder of everyone who turned up to show their support. Anyone who was there can attest to the fact that the energy at the meeting was palpable. And the most exciting thing to me wasn’t the speakers (which were incredible), the diverse and engaged exhibitors (all of whom brought their A game), or even the absolutely incredible facility (Aria has to be one of the coolest resorts in the US). 


No, the thing I was most proud of was you, the attendees. How incredible was it to FINALLY get everyone in the industry together, in one place, for an event that was dedicate solely to med spas? We had nearly 250 med spas represented from all over the country (even Canada, Chile and Africa!), from all different walks of life, representing an incredible array of innovation, technology, grit, and entrepreneurship. And again…the energy, the excitement about the future, and the goodwill of all who were there was truly overwhelming. I’ve been to many conferences, and I have to tell you I have never experienced a group of people so engaged with one another, so excited to be part of something, but most of all, so nice. This industry is on rocket fuel right now, and so long as all of you continue to pour your heart and soul into growing into a profitable, safe, compliant industry, I promise that we at AmSpa will put all of our resources to bear to support each and every one o f you. I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it, so thank you, each of you, for your participation in the meeting.

I did want to plug our Boot Camps since many of you have asked about them. For those of you who haven’t been, AmSpa has been putting on Medical Spa and Aesthetic Bootcamps for three years now. These are different from the Medical Spa Show in that they are two days of extended, intense training in an MBA-style format. We limit the number of attendees and offer extended periods for our speakers to teach – 60 to 90 minute sessions, minimum. Many of the incredible speakers you saw at the show are there to teach you everything they know about how to run a profitable aesthetic practice. Regardless of whether you are open, getting ready to open, or just thinking about opening, I can’t recommend enough coming to a Boot Camp. But beware – it’s an intense two days, and you will leave absolutely exhausted, filled with information, but incredibly pumped up to move forward. And if anyone has any doubts, we are more than happy to refer you to over 300 satisfied customers who have attended, any one of whom will be happy to discuss their experience. 

We’re kicking off our Boot Camp season in Rosemont on March 10-11 (this is the city that O’Hare Airport is located in Chicago, so it’s super easy for anyone in the country to get to … it’s being held at the Hilton Rosemont, which even offers a shuttle to and from the airport), and have six other dates planned. With our increased membership and the attendance at the Medical Spa Show, these dates are already filling up and they will sell out. So check your calendar and sign up right away because we don’t want anyone to miss out!

Thanks again to all of you, and we look forward to a strong and successful 2018!
