Medical spas have experienced great success in the South Florida market, and there are ever-expanding opportunities for new franchises to open. If you’re planning to launch a new site, there are several construction and aesthetic considerations to keep in mind.
Preparing to Launch a New MedSpa Franchise Location
Franchise construction projects frequently mean there are certain brand and design guidelines that must be adhered to maintain consistency from location to location. When selecting a general contractor for your MedSpa, it’s important to find one who is experienced working with franchise operations.
Our work with the Body Details franchise has enabled us to complete MedSpa renovations in five different franchise locations throughout South Florida. In some properties, a primary focus had to be on correcting code violations. In others, we addressed both code corrections as well as converted the entire space from top to bottom to match the franchise design and aesthetic.
To be successful with a franchise MedSpa construction project, it’s important to pay attention to these areas:
- Code requirements – Medical spas walk the line in terms of building code requirements in Florida. Despite occupying the medical world, MedSpas are not required to adhere to Florida’s AHCA-based code. That said, MedSpas are still required to meet all Florida building code requirements for commercial properties (and then some).
- Treatment rooms – Treatment rooms in MedSpas may service everything from facials to laser treatments, and the ambiance and needs of the room will differ depending on the services performed. One way to remain dynamic to client requests is to design your individual treatment rooms in a way that can accommodate multiple treatment options.
- Lighting – Lighting can be one of the trickiest things to get right in any home or business, and the challenges are further compounded in a medical spa environment. Too much light can make a treatment room feel blinding and sterile. Too little light can make it difficult to safely and accurately provide treatments.

- Climate control – The climate control needs of MedSpa franchises are more varied and nuanced than other types of commercial buildings due to the type of treatments performed. For example, laser treatment rooms must strike a delicate balance when it comes to room temperature. Getting the temperature “just right” often proves more challenging than one would think.
