Birch Medical Spas, a medical spa services provider backed by Imperial Capital, has partnered with Elase Medical Spas, a Utah-based medical spa working to provide career opportunities for women and to help clients feel more confident.

Elase was founded in 2004 looking to empower its employees and clients through education, service, innovation and community. This partnership marks the first platform investment for Birch. The company aims to expand across the U.S. through similar partnerships with other medical spas. Carrie Brinton and Matt Brinton, co-founders of Elase, will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations of the company.

“Partnering with Birch will provide Elase with the expertise and capital required to accelerate our growth,” says Brinton.
