Aah, the fallibility of human memory...Studies have shown that within days of a treatment clients will quite literally forget what they looked like before an injection.
I know I've been guilty of this, I've also been accused of raving about the phenomenon. Since we tend to talk so often about our aesthetic software and the absolute necessity of a good cosmetic timeline, we thought it prudent that you to hear an actual client weigh in on its impact...
Were excited to share the following feedback from a patient who recently experienced the Aesthetic Record White Glove Treatment for the very first time.
eBay kicked off its business with the sale of a broken laser pointer. Microsoft started with a tiny office populated by a college dropout and a few other unknown software technicians.
What does this have to do with the aesthetic business and your spa software?
The Aesthetic Business can give you some hectic days. Setting up a secure process for client permissions and questionnaires can quickly become the bane of your med spa!
Expectations are evolving in the aesthetic medicine field. Businesses that offer "White Glove Service" are out-pacing their less tech-savvy competitors.
Both Allergan and Galderma offer a rewards program for clients that utilizing their products.
One way that many of the TOP medical spas cater to their clients is by creating client accounts for BD & Aspire, upon their first visit.
As a provider, taking a simple step to track clients points before an after procedures gives a client an extra level of care that boosts retention rates.

Bad marketing plans for med spas are probably a big part of the reason that Allergan had to pay a Kardashian to move whats actually a revolutionary product.

Pass on your Aesthetics Knowledge
As a medspa owner or aesthetics practitioner, you know that we have turned a corner in our ability to change a simple face into an extraordinary one. Of all the procedures that we perform, the liquid nose job may be the most dramatic.
Friends and family notice the change in appearance and attitude immediately and your client's reactions are priceless. Still, it pays to be hyper-aware of the impact a new nose can have and plan accordingly.
When it comes to solid medical aesthetics training, microblading often slips through the cracks. Leaving clients struggling to hide shoddy work or spending a fortune cleaning up a mess that never had to happen in the first place.
Is there still a demand for medical aesthetics training in Botox?
British plastic surgeons who have been fighting a quiet battle to maintain their share of the aesthetics market recently received some discouraging news. According to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps), 2016 showed a 40% drop in the number of procedures performed by its members. It was the lowest in nearly ten years.
Former Baaps president, Rajiv Grover blames the growing trend in part on people seeking out specialists that perform these procedures within their normal practices as well as the unfortunate state of the economy.
Still, there can be little doubt that the ease and lack of downtime offered by injectables will continue to erode the cosmetic surgery industry for years to come. Clinics and spas that have chosen to add aesthetic injections to their menu of services have found that Botox training is less of a one-time certification and more of an area for continuing education.
Are You Ready for Medical Aesthetics Training in Sculptra?
As a member of the synthetic polymer family, Sculptra is longer-lasting than most dermal fillers and this can leave practitioners wondering if it's a worthwhile risk for their clinic or spa. Since a few bad treatments can quickly erode a practitioner's reputation, it makes sense to study each treatment carefully before deciding what to provide.

Despite overwhelming client enthusiasm for before and after photography we often see practitioners that are hesitant to take the leap into building their own portfolios. Thankfully, aesthetic software has progressed to the point that before and after photos and even client timelines are all but built into the platforms, leaving us little excuse to drag our heels.
Of the reasons we often hear regarding the absence of a good portfolio, a basic trepidation about the process typically tops our list. This series is intended to help both novice and veteran spa and clinic practitioners stay competitive in the ever-growing aesthetics industry.

This was actually part of a Facebook post that included the unfourtunate young womans first and last name. With a quick glance it looks like an attack from an angry ex, but this was an act of aggression from a former friend that worked for a clinic where the 21-year-old had recently been treated.
This patient care technician had snooped through Frances confidential files and then actually aired the information on Social Media. These kinds of nightmare scenarios are a blow to both patients and healthcare professionals, and they leave many people questioning the security and respect given to their private medical records.
