Biggest Challenges for New Aesthetics Businesses

importantAt SkinViva Training, we’ve helped hundreds of delegates to start out on a new career. 

Training is the first step, but many people are quite concerned about the business side too – what practicalities need to be worked out and ultimately, whether it will be worth it.

We have listed the most common perceived challenges for someone setting up an aesthetics business for the first time.

SkinViva Training Survey

SkinViva Training carried out a survey of over 250 people, the majority of whom are already practising BOTOX/fillers. The survey included the question:

“What do you feel are the biggest challenges likely to be faced by someone setting up an aesthetics business for the first time? (Choose up to 3)”
