Cosmetic Injectables & Laser Training Can Impact Your Business

Are you ready for a boost in your business? Many skin care specialists have found that the added benefit of laser technology has made a huge difference. Cosmetic laser technology has been on the rise for the last decade, especially with leading treatments like laser hair removal. Clients are seeking longer, more permanent results prefer the advanced technology that cosmetic lasers can deliver. But this is also good news for laser technicians and skin care specialists.

Cosmetic laser technicians and skin care specialists can benefit from offering these in-demand laser services to clients. Price points for these treatments tend to be significantly higher than esthetic treatments like facials or waxing–and with good reason. Services like laser hair removal, IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation, and radiofrequency skin tightening tend to show faster, better results that are long-lasting–or even permanent!

Medical spas, skin care clinics, and other skin and beauty businesses have begun to offer cosmetic laser treatments alongside esthetic services. There are even some esthetics treatments that go hand-in-hand with certain cosmetic laser services for a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Selling these as a package is a great way to benefit business and give clients the absolute best treatment possible.

As an added business benefit, dermatologists, nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals can add cosmetic injectable treatments to their area of expertise. This includes services like Botox, dermal fillers, sclerotherapy, and more. Clients enjoy these nonsurgical, no downtime treatments because treatments like Botox and dermal fillers are capable of wiping away signs of aging from the face yet still revealing naturally-appearing results.

But how much of an added benefit are these treatments? Is training worth it? On average, laser hair removal can cost a client anywhere from $50 – $500 per treatment (this depends on the size of the area being treated). Also, these services often require more than one treatment to see results. If one client wants $200 worth of laser hair removal on her legs and they require 10 treatments, that’s $2,000 in your pocket. Another example: Botox usually takes 30 minutes to perform and costs an average of $500 per treatment! Plus clients will usually come in every 3 – 5 months for a touch up since Botox and dermal filler treatments are not permanent.
