How To Create A Successful Medspa Compliance & SetUp Program

It takes a lot of work to set up a med spa. You need a large amount of money, and you need to be sure that the business will be profitable in the long run. However, if done right, it can make all the difference between making money or losing it on your first day of operation. We are here to help you become a successful medical spa, clinic, or practice. We understand that compliance and setup can be challenging for new businesses, but we have the experience to guide you through this process.  In this article, we’ll walk through our holistic approach to compliance and setup so that you can create a successful program for your business!

How to Approach MedSpa Compliance and SetUp

A holistic approach to compliance and marketing considers all aspects of your business. It requires you to look at the entire picture, from your services to how you market yourself. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the benefits of using a holistic approach: You’ll be able to grow your company by focusing on customer satisfaction instead of just trying to meet regulatory requirements or make sure everything is done by the book (which is only sometimes possible). Your team will be more efficient when they know exactly what needs doing and where it needs doing it—instead of being forced into guessing or guessing wrong!

Compliance & Setup Program

The compliance & Setup program is an ongoing process. It’s not a checklist or not just about rules and regulations, but also about culture and behavior. The people who work in your medical spa are the ones who need to be compliant with your compliance program; if you want them to be.

Holistic Approach

A holistic approach to compliance and setup programs. Building blocks of a successful program, from employees to management.
  • Compliance is a holistic approach to healthcare. It involves everything from governance to technology, clinical operations to financial management.
  • Compliance and marketing are connected through communication channels like electronic health records (EHRs) or patient portal systems. They need each other to be successful in their respective roles as gatekeepers for patient information flows through the organization.
  • Compliance, marketing, and setup are all interconnected because they support one another by ensuring that data has integrity across all touchpoints between patients/customers/consumers/patients, etc.
To create a successful medical spa, clinic, or practice, we recommend a holistic approach to your compliance and setup program.
  • The first step to creating a successful compliance and setup program is to have a plan. The next step is doing your research, which will help you create timelines, set goals, and figure out what kind of people you need on your team.
  • Once you’ve done all this work, we recommend hiring people familiar with medical spas/clinics in your area or even beyond that so that they can understand their market better than anyone else.

Decide on the Services to Specialize In

The next step is to decide on the services you want to specialize in. This can be tricky, as many different treatments and methods are available. Some examples include:
  • Botox injections
  • Laser hair removal
  • Microdermabrasion (skin exfoliation)

Get Certificates and Be Approved by the Board

You’ll need a business license, tax ID, and bank account. The next step is to open the spa’s checking account. It’s essential to do this before you start taking clients so that they can pay you directly into your account. To get approved by the state board, you’ll need to submit proof that your equipment meets specific safety standards (such as being free from bloodborne pathogens) and an application detailing how much money you plan on charging per hour for services at each location.  This information will help determine if any rules might prevent multiple opening locations within city limits or county lines.
  • Create a business plan.
  • Develop a business plan.
  • Make sure it’s realistic.
  • Include your goals, objectives, financials, marketing plan, management plan, and human resources (HR) policies.

Acquire Equipment

The cost of equipment can be prohibitive. You should ensure you have the right equipment for each service you offer and client type.

Hire Qualified Staff Members

Hiring qualified staff members is the most crucial step in creating a successful medspa. It’s also one of the most difficult to do because there are many factors involved:

Passion for their work

The person you hire should be passionate about what they do and how they help people feel better. An excellent way to determine if this person has the right personality for your business is to meet with them at an open day or interview session.  During these meetings, ask questions like: “What makes working here special?” “How would someone describe your job?” “Why did you choose this career path?”


If they’re qualified enough to do their job well, having them on board can save time and money and improve customer service levels at every level within an organization (from top management down).  This applies especially when hiring doctors who specialize in naturally rebalancing hormones without pharmaceuticals or surgery required!

Open for Business

Once you’ve opened your doors, getting the word out about your new business is essential. This can be done through advertising in local newspapers, magazines, and radio stations, as well as social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram. 
  • Ensure your website is up-to-date with all the information about your services and who should call for an appointment at their earliest convenience!
  • Setup procedures are often tedious, but with the appropriate information, you can get your medspa up and running in no time.
  • The setup procedures for a medspa vary depending on the type of facility you’re establishing. However, steps must be followed to get your new business on the right foot.
Planning and ensuring you have everything you need before starting work is essential when setting up your business. This includes hiring staff members who know what they do and how they should act in different situations (e.g., when people come into the shop). 


As you can see, compliance and setup are just a few steps to creating a successful medical spa business.
