I recently posted about reinvigorating the Medical Spa Society. We are now seeking volunteers to serve on various committees including: membership, marketing and education.
If you are interested in getting involved, first join the MSS, and then e-mail us at email@example.com and let us know which committee you would like to join.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my career has been participating in not-for-profit trade organizations to help support the growth of the industry in which I do business. Please give back to the world of aesthetic medicine and you will be rewarded.

Acara recently spoke, exhibited and walked the tradeshow floor at the Medical Aesthetics show in NY. I have to say I was very pleased with the event. The show was well promoted and organized – the turnout on the show floor was great on Sunday and ok on Monday.
From an attendee standpoint, the quality of the booths were good, the medical spa and spa education was smaller than in previous years, but the quality of the speakers didn’t falter (including our own CEO and excellent speaker, Francis Acunzo, who spoke (and conducted a roundtable – shameless plug) on timely and substantive subjects. The business track included a good number of sessions related to recession proofing for medical spas and spas.
The medical spa section of the floor had good representation from some of the top vendors. The major med spa laser companies were there: Sciton, Cutera, Cynosure, Palomar, Candela, etc… Spa Finder, Universal, Iredale Cosmetics, Clarisonic and more. A few newer medical spa products that caught my eye were: MesoDerm and Canfield Scientific’s Reveal. So, if you are looking to add to your knowledge base or prospect list – the Medical Aesthetics Show in NY is definitely worth your consideration.

I just got back from IECSC in Las Vegas this past weekend. I was there speaking Saturday morning. My first talk was on “How to Open a Successful Medspa” and my second talk was on “How to Stay Competitive in the Medical Spa World“. I was very pleased to see both of the seminars very well attended by owners and managers from all over the country. If you are interested in listening to either of these seminars they are available from time-to-time in Webinar format, and there is a schedule of our webinars on the Acara website www.acaramedspas.com .
The Medical Spa Society (MSS) sponsors and arranges for all of the education at this event and they did a great job this year. There were top industry experts and physicians that shared with the conference attendees their knowledge, insight and experience.
If you are seeking to grow or expand your business or believe that you may have lost some of the initial excitement for your business, there is nothing better than attending an industry event to breathe fresh life into your business.

Over the past 25 years of being in the world of spas, wellness and retail health-care, I have found that much of my success has been derived from continual education combined with building long term relationships. Looking back at the many ways in which I supported this approach to business, I would have to say that being an active member of numerous trade organizations has been my number one strategy.
Joining trade organizations provides you with an opportunity to take advantage of their educational programs, attend sponsored conferences with active trade shows and link-up via the Internet for news and information. If you are seeking to succeed in the world of Medical Spas and Aesthetic Retail Health-care I would highly recommend that you join the Medical Spa Society (MSS). www.medicalspasociety.com
They offer complete educational programs including CMEs for medical professionals at two of the International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conferences www.IECSC.com and provide monthly educational Webinars that you can listen to live or streaming off their website. Here is the most recent Webinar (I personally presented this webinar) http://www.medicalspasociety.com/video_test.htm .
You really can’t beat the price of $300 per year and that offers the opportunity to receive 20% off on IECSC conference education.
