Are you’re a doctor, dentist or nurse? Does working in a solely clinical or NHS environment not have the same draw for you that it once had? Are you struggling to make your practice work financially?
Then, listen up, because now might be the time to take a step to the side and consider whether a small career change could be right for you. More and more medical practitioners are considering a move to private, aesthetic medical practice, with a focus on facial aesthetics.
So, what is the attraction of offering facial aesthetic treatments?
Well, let’s start with the elephant in the room…It’s true that as more and more doctors, including GPs, nurses (both prescribing and non-prescribing), and dentists, both NHS and private, general and cosmetic dentists, are discovering that their practices can be significantly augmented financially through the addition of facial aesthetics to their treatment repertoire.
Patients who once came to your clinic for a single reason, usually a non-elective, medical reason, are suddenly drawn back for a private, elective, cosmetic offering designed to make them feel good, look more beautiful and address their ageing concerns. But it’s not just your existing database of patients coming through the door who will take up these services; suddenly, you will have a whole new patient cohort opening to you, who are crossing your threshold specifically for the facial aesthetic treatments that you offer. By learning this new skill, training to deliver botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers, to start with, you can significantly boost your bottom line, and perhaps reverse any financial concerns that plague your current practice and leave you with sleepless nights.
Of course, if you’ve never heard of facial aesthetics then it can seem like a whole new, somewhat daunting world. Facial aesthetics, a subsection of aesthetic medicine, refers to a group of non-surgical, minimally-invasive cosmetic interventions which are aimed at counteracting the signs of ageing apparent in both men and women from the age of thirty onwards; including lines, wrinkles and a loss of skin elasticity. Non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments incorporate options such as cosmetic injections, including dermal filler and botulinum toxin (Botox®) injections, as well professional skincare, energy-based devices and chemical skin peels, to name but a few.
Regulation, and more specifically the lack of statutory legislation, means that such treatments, particularly cosmetic injectables, are being performed by those who are not medically qualified, often with undesirable results. Increased public awareness means that discerning clients are seeking out medical practitioners, including dentists, doctors and nurses, to administer these treatments. Let’s face it, if you’re a dentist, you have the background learning and training in relation to the anatomical landscape of the head, neck and face, as well as increased awareness and prescribing rights required to deal with any unfortunate complications. All that you now require is the specific treatment training.
Now is a great time to get started in facial aesthetics. The BTC, founded by dentist Dr. Harry Singh, run a series of training courses and workshops dedicated to learning both how to administer treatments in a safe and professional manner, but more importantly (perhaps!) how to maximise your profits and create a successful business by incorporating facial aesthetics.
Dr. Singh has been carrying out facial aesthetic treatments for sixteen years, having decided to concentrate solely on this aspect of his clinic since 2002. Harry discovered that he was performing more facial aesthetic treatments than dental treatments in his daily practice and he hasn’t looked back since that realisation.
