Medical Spa Resources

Medical Spa Financing offers financing services for medical spas.

These include Working Capital Programs, Leasehold Improvement Financing, Facility Financing, Practice Acquisitions, and other financing assistance to healthcare providers in the acquisition of existing facilities.

"According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, non-surgical procedures in 2004 increased 51 percent from 2003. The big winners are procedures perfect for Medical Spas: Laser skin resurfacing (up 363%), Cellulite treatments (up 193%), and Hylaform/Restylane fillers (up 659%).

This is a very lucrative business, with the potential for impressive cash flow. It is also a business that is capital intensive, and the best way to manage the high startup costs is to utilize the flexible financing available. The MediSpa industry, perhaps more than any other, is one where you must control your capital costs in order to maximize your monthly cash flow." (from MedSpa Financing website)

From that site:
"A medical spa is a facility that operates under the full-time, on-site supervision of a licensed health care professional. The facility operates within the scope of practice of its staff, and offers traditional, complementary, and alternative health practices and treatments in a spa-like setting. Practitioners working within a medical spa will be governed by their appropriate licensing board, if licensure is required."
