Can facial aesthetics courses improve your practice profits?

Facial AestheticsAn increasing number of people in the UK are turning to facial aesthetics to combat premature signs of ageing. It is important to them to find practitioners they can trust, and a cosmetic dentist with whom they have already enjoyed successful treatment is generally regarded as a good choice of practitioner.

Before facial aesthetics became popular, cosmetic surgery was the only option for patients who wanted rejuvenated skin. With procedures such as face lifts costing a few thousand pounds for even the most basic treatment, this was prohibitively expensive to many people. The fact that all surgery carries risks – all be they minimal – also put a lot of people off treatment.

Non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers have grown rapidly in popularity over the past decade. Suitable for counteracting the effects of spending too much time in the sun without wearing adequate sunscreen, of drinking too much alcohol or of not drinking enough water, among other things, these procedures offer excellent results at a fraction of the cost of cosmetic surgery – and with no down time at all.

Recognising the need for more trustworthy and qualified facial aesthetics providers, the Botox Training Club provides accredited facial aesthetics workshops for dentists, doctors, and other medically qualified professionals.

All of these course include 6.5 hours of verifiable Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and all relevant paperwork (for indemnity cover and to set up a pharmacy account), with all models provided and the opportunity to review your model and, if necessary, top up their treatment after two weeks.

Adding facial aesthetics to your repertoire can significantly increase footfall and turnover at your practice. Dr Harry Singh, who teaches these courses, was a GDP who developed an interested in facial aesthetics. He treated his first patient in 2002 and has worked with more than 3,000 since that date.

Dr Singh now exclusively focuses on aesthetics and in providing accredited facial aesthetics courses to other dentists, doctors, and nurses. By following his methodology and example, you too could turn your focus entirely on to facial aesthetics treatments (which have very high turnovers) or simply add additional services for the benefit of your patients.
