5 Reasons For Adding Skincare to your Medical Aesthetics Business

Save 10% on skincare coursesMany BOTOX® and dermal filler practitioners initially start small with a core offering of injectables only, but there are some good reasons for adding skincare treatments alongside injectables.

SkinViva Training Academy now offers skincare courses alongside its well-known medical injectable treatment training.

The company first added skincare courses in 2021 after seeing feedback from delegates who were struggling to find high quality skincare training elsewhere. Many had stories of poor quality delivery with training geared to beauticians lacking rigorous medical qualifications. So if you were wondering whether to try skincare course, there is now a selection available at our Manchester training centre.

SkinViva Training Academy’s skincare offering is based on treatments that offer noticeable results. These are not simply ‘pampering’ facials, but offer improvement to the condition and appearance of the skin. Since launching, the range has expanded and there is now a range of 6 half day courses for delegates to choose from:

5 Reasons For Adding Skincare to your Medical Aesthetics

For medical practitioners, offering BOTOX® and dermal fillers is a good way to build on medical training with marketable skills. Those with more experience then tend to pursue more intermediate and advanced procedures to expand their business, but skincare is also a good route to consider alongside your medical injections. Here are 5 reasons why skincare works so well alongside injectables:

  1. Better results
    Injectable treatments tend to troubleshoot specific lines and wrinkles, or work on revolumising areas to restore a youthful appearance or improve the shape. Skincare treatments work on the condition of the skin, stimulating healing and renewal responses that boost collagen and therefore lead to fresher, younger looking skin. Alongside injectable treatments, this means a better overall result – and great results is key to happy clients!
  2. Client retention
    Offering your clients skincare services means that they don’t have to go elsewhere. This is not only convenient for your client, but also means that there is less risk of them deciding to go elsewhere if they were able to find a practitioner who did both types of treatment in the same clinic. By adding skincare treatments, you’re giving your clients another reason to stay with you. This is also a benefit to your business, as it’s a lot cheaper to retain clients than to advertise to find new ones!
  3. Increase turnover and profits
    Charging for additional services means additional income for your business. Adding on skincare is a natural extension for your clients, but it means you’re also able to increase the average transaction for your patients.
  4. Natural renewal
    Skincare treatments work to trigger the skin’s natural healing and renewal responses. How this is done depends on the skincare treatment. It may be through intense exfoliation to strip away dead skin cells, or through mesotherapy, microneedling or radiofrequency. These offer ways to stimulate skin cell renewal as well as collagen and elastin production. It taps into the body’s own natural resources and this really appeals to clients looking for natural ways to manage the ageing process. You may find you attract new clients who are specifically looking for advanced skincare treatments as they don’t like the idea of injectables.
  5. Your reputation
    Having a rounded offering with a varied choice of treatments looks far more reputable than offering just a handful of injectable options. It demonstrates that you’re able to recommend what’s best for the client as an individual, rather than simply what you have available. It is a sign that your business is established.
