Med Spas or Medi-Spas combine the medical profession and spa industry to offer cosmetic surgery and anti-aging services. This interesting hybrid niche has been a growth industry during the last decade with over 2,000 Med Spas operating today in the United States. It’s projected that growth will continue as baby boomers age and demand for minimally or non-invasive cosmetic procedures are made possible by new laser equipment. Additionally, the market for aesthetic procedures among 18-25 year olds is also growing, especially for laser hair removal and tattoo removal. In fact, according to Marketdata Enterprises, an independent market research and consulting firm, revenues for Med Spas reached $1.94 billion in 2012, and will hit $3.6 billion by 2016.
Med Spa practitioners may include: physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners estheticians, laser technicians and dentists. Each has his or her own specialty and level of expertise, with the most requested aesthetician services including facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing & tightening, and other anti-aging treatments.
