Body contouring is a growth industry globally and is estimated to be currently worth $3.5 billion at the end of 2022. Ever since the pandemic a lot more people are focusing on improving their lifestyle and their body.
If you’re looking to start a body contouring business in Texas, then it is a good idea to look into whether you need a licence or not. So what are the body contouring business licensing requirements? If you are feeling confused about the answer to that question – and you’ve started some research to find the licensing requirements. So why is it so difficult to find the answer? These treatments are fairly new concepts, and they also do not penetrate or pierce the skin making them low risk.
There is no federal licencing requirement and non-invasive body contouring is classified as a “miscellaneous personal service” in the US. So at a national level there are currently no requirements. Next you need to check your State requirements.
In Texas a great place to start your research is the Texas ebook on Business Licenses and Permits. You may also find Business Start Up Information – Guides and Resources helpful as well.
Most of our clients are based in many different states and many different countries. Our students often tell us that based on their research a licence is not required for their state and they were only able to find the information over the phone with their relevant state department. Often, you will only be able to find if it is regulated or prohibited and no information available for if it is ok to provide.
We do not know why it is so hard to find this information, however it seems that because its non-invasive it may not be a real concern for the feds or most states.
