Abstract: Building your ideal staff not only helps your business, but also makes the job of management easier.

Q: What is the ideal staffing model for a medical aesthetic practice or medical spa?
A: Depending on the laws of your state, medical spas and medical aesthetic practices can take on a variety of staffing models. Ultimately, best practices indicate a facility should have a supervising physician on-site to oversee mid-level providers and estheticians. Preferably, the on-site physician should specialize in the type of treatments being provided, such as those a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist offer.
One of the keys to creating a successful medical aesthetic practice is finding and keeping a talented and happy staff. Avoiding heavy staff turnover will allow you to retain clientele, and a stable environment that produces consistent results will also assist in attracting new patients.
