Spencer Fane attorney Ayesha Mehdi published an article in Health Care Quarterly focused on the medical spa industry as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Titled “Medical spas and compliance: Understand the legal risks,” the article discusses the key regulations medical spas need to follow to ensure they are in compliance with the laws for practicing medicine.
