While it may not sound like a lot, three more surgeries (or big-ticket procedures) per month can make a big difference for your practice. It could mean the difference between you just sliding by or barely being able to cover your fixed overhead costs. Or, even worse, you having to dip into your savings to cover your expenses for a slow month!
Every hour spent on consultations is time that could be spent on treating patients and generating profit. Imagine doing 33 consultations in one evening with an outcome of 27 appointments.
Satisfaction and patient experience are the lifeblood of your practice, and they determine revenue growth. It is important that your team understands just how fundamental they are in the process of acquiring new business and building long-term relationships with your current patients.
Promoting skincare in your cosmetic practice includes many benefits to you and your patients, including serving as a new revenue stream that could account for 10% to 25% of your total revenues and convenience for your patients.

Even established, successful practices can have a hard time introducing and selling new products in today’s information-saturated world. Consumers are bombarded with services, discounts, offers and promotions for things they may or may not need everywhere they look. So, how do you get through to them? What will make them choose your product or service over the rest? What if you tried giving it away for free?
When it comes to the challenges of running a medical practice, most physicians will agree that price shoppers are among the most frustrating. With these types of consumers, it is as though training and expertise account for nothing. Like all that really matters is, “how much is this going to cost me?!” However, physicians also need to realize that just because someone asks about price, it doesn’t necessarily make them a “price shopper.”
With the over-saturation of cosmetic-based practices within all markets, practice owners are continually looking for new ways to maintain their patient base and keep them engaged. Just the simple goal of creating repeat facial injectable patients, or ongoing sales of prescribed skincare products, can sometimes be a daunting task.
