CPP Launches Network of Physician-led Medical Aesthetics Clinics Across US

November 24, 2022

CPP is a partnership designed to provide physician owners with an alternative to private equity. 

Cosmetic Physician Partners Inc. ("CPP") is pleased to announce its official launch in the US with the closing of its 10th medical aesthetics clinic. Led by Dr. A. Jay Burns, Dr. Joel L. Cohen, Matt and Kathy Taranto and Dan Schacter, CPP is a partnership designed to provide physician owners with an alternative to private equity. 

CPP provides superior financial upside to its partners, an array of deep expertise through centralized services (HR, IT, Marketing, Recruiting and many more), savings on procurement through scale, all the while allowing each partner to retain control over their clinic.

"As consultants, there was only so much we could do to help individual clinics," explains Matt and Kathy Taranto, owners of Aestheticare, one of the largest medspa's in the US, and founder of Mint Aesthetics, a medspa consulting and training firm who has served more than 2,000 clinics across the US, in a news release. "By creating CPP, we can do so much more with our deep support infrastructure, better shared economies of scale and best practices, all while providing our partners superior financial upside."

"I am blessed to be a part of this partnership," says Dr. Burns, a past president of American Society of Lasers in Surgery and Medicine. “I have worked with private equity before, and was initially reluctant to join any PE group, but this is significantly different.   Owned by owners for owners, CPP provided me with support in the areas I needed with the amount of control I wanted. Better yet, the people we have brought on are incredible. I have been in the industry for 30 years and it's the most fun I have had since I started. The management team's expertise allows my clinic to run more profitably and efficiently so I can focus on clinical issues benefitting my patients, which is my passion." 

"CPP just makes sense," says Dr. Cohen. "Having run my practice for over 18 years, saying I have a high bar would be an understatement. CPP has built an incredible team that has taken a considerable amount of work off my plate allowing me more time to focus on research, our clinical partners, my patients and my family. Better yet, clinic performance is improving, and my staff loves the CPP support team!" 

"We truly are privileged by the caliber of clinics joining CPP. Not only have our results exceeded expectations, but we have built a strong owner community where our partners play a big role in the overall success of CPP," adds Dan Schacter, President of CPP. "While the waitlist to join CPP grows, our partners keep telling us that joining was worth the wait. CPP was built to help our owners better run their practice, and so far, we are doing just that."
