SPA+CLINIC’s New Issue Is Out Now!

We blinked and all of a sudden, it’s May! Time is flying by at a rapid speed, which was particularly apparent to me when I realised that it had been five years since we celebrated SPA+CLINIC’s 20th anniversary, which means, we’ve already reached the next milestone: 25 years of SPA+CLINIC! If it were a marriage, it would be our Silver Anniversary, which is, of course, a reason to celebrate! Having a magazine in print for a quarter of a century is no small feat these days, and I am proud that we have landed on your desks continuously – even through the pandemic. We are excited to host a 25th anniversary event this September to celebrate our milestone with brand partners and some of our dear readers – stay tuned for more information to come to see how you can get an exclusive invitation.

The magazine has seen the industry it is written for change and evolve dramatically over the past 25 years, and it feels like we’re in the middle of another big shift right now. One of the biggest accelerators of that change is of course the new guidelines introduced by AHPRA and the TGA since July of last year. Australia is now one of the strictest countries in the world when it comes to advertising non-surgical aesthetic procedures, and there a whispers that the crackdown will continue and include more kinds of treatments soon. On page 94, read our summary of the updated TGA guidelines, and if you’re curious to learn how other countries are doing it, head to page 90 where we take a look at Germany’s strict regulations. 

Our cover story is celebrating another brand’s milestone: BTL’s 5th anniversary in Australia. In only five years, the device company has established itself at the forefront of innovative technology and has won over many Australian practitioners as loyal brand partners. Read more on page 50. We also look at the changing landscape of aesthetic clinics, with MECCA recently ‘entering the game’ with their MECCA Aesthetica clinics (page 40). Yes, there is more competition than ever, but that just means you have to focus on your point of difference. Demand for aesthetic and wellness treatments isn’t slowing down so there is ample opportunity out there for spas and clinics.

I hope you enjoy this issue, and please come say hi if you see us at any of the upcoming conferences.
