How to Maximise the Profits At Your Medical Aesthetic Clinic

How to Maximise the Profits At Your Medical Aesthetic Clinic

What can you do now to ensure a successful year?As we move into the second quarter of 2015, it’s time to get serious about your profits. If you are committed to maximizing your growth this year, you must have ZERO TOLERANCE for mediocre staff, sloppy processes and lazy practices that underwhelm your patients. Aesthetic patients today won’t tolerate being treated like second class citizens. They will give their disposable income to the practice that makes them feel special.

Remember there is always someone behind you who is looking at taking your place in the market.

Creating a successful aesthetic practice in times of economic uncertainty is a daunting challenge. Emphasising the patient’s experience, effectively using social media and the web, and an ego-devoid introspective analysis of the flaws of your practice are essential for any successful aesthetic practitioner to grow and be prosperous despite any shortfalls in the economy.

The core principles in medicine and business can, at times, be contradictory. However, the essential fundamentals of medicine are consistent with the best strategies in business. For example: doing the right thing, selflessness, and empathy – bode well in business also. However business is a competitive world and the success of any company is mainly measured in financial statements. We all know that cosmetic medicine is not a general medical business; aesthetic practitioners are selling an expensive luxury, not a health necessity. However, it is important to remember that aesthetic medicine is still, first and foremost, medicine, and beyond any other profession or business, practitioners have an enormous responsibility to always do what is in the best interest of their patient rather than themselves. No other profession is granted such responsibility or high standards. Success should be measured in the patients’ well-being and not just the bottom line.

Aesthetic practitioners have a responsibility to treat the patient first using the most responsible and most appropriate treatments while keeping in mind the luxuries of retail to keep consumer driven patients happy and to remain profitable. So how can practitioners practice this fine balance in a down economy and still thrive?

Most importantly, the ‘product’ has to be good. Regardless of the economy, only a business providing a good product will succeed in the long term. If the product is less than promised, the consumer may be fooled for a limited period of time by creative and expensive advertising, but eventually, the individual will catch on to the inferiority and the business will fail. In aesthetic medicine, the practitioner and staff are the product!

That means any service offered by the practice or persons who represent the practitioner must be aligned with the highest standards of quality. Their competency will be perceived as a reflection of the practitioner. Additionally, the practitioner will have to be well versed in the medicinal products offered and continue to perfect his or her technical skills.

If the product (practitioner) is no good, word spreads fast. This is true in any economy, but with the limited opportunities and increased competition, a practice cannot tolerate even a minority of disappointed patients. For an established doctor seeing a decline in business, now is the time to act fast and implement measures to ensure the practice thrives in the current downturn. Those seeing a reduction in business need to re-evaluate their current policies with an ego-devoid introspection and attention to the following formula so they continue to grow and prosper, as your competitors wonder what happened.

The following success formula will address all of the above and, if implemented, will keep your phones ringing, your patients buying and referrals coming to you. The point is to first check your mind-set. Are you buying into media pessimism? If you are, you are not going to be open to opportunities and possibilities so fix that first.

Microneedling For Acne Scars

Microneedling For Acne Scars


Posted on by Skin Health Hub • Skin Condition Topics

Although Microneedling has been around since the 1940’s, it has recently experienced resurgence in popularity – let’s explore the benefits of microneedling for acne scars.

Skin Health Hub Skin Conditions Microneedling For Acne Scars

Acne scarring occurs because depressions or pits in the skin have formed abnormally from the inflamed acne spot.

Micro needling technology uses either a mechanical device that incorporates surgical steel micro-needles in a wheel, which is used to roll over the surface of the skin in a patterned formation or a mechanical pen-like motorized devise which punctures and stamps the skin by needles moving in and out at a very fast rate of 1000 punctures per second.

Microneedling is highly effective repairing abnormal healing as the micro needles penetrate from between 0.25mm -2.5mm below the skins surface. This creates microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin. Micro injury targets the area where the dermal inflammation has occurred and breaks-up fibrous tissue to fill-in where there has been a loss at the site of the acne lesion.

In our article How To Remove Back Acne Scars we described eight of the latest treatment methods for treating acne scars: Dermabrasion, Laser Skin Resurfacing, Acne Chemical Peels, Acne Scar Surgery, Collagen Injections, Fat Transfer and Microdermabrasion.

We discovered that most of these treatment methods involved the removal of layers of skin to allow healthier skin cells to surface faster. Several treatments caused coagulation of tissue and the fast-tracking of collagen and elastin production to quickly move through the dermal layers to the epidermis which in turn plumps-out skin where indentations from scars have occurred thereby revealing smoother skin at the surface.

Like wrinkles, most acne scars are visible because they are lower or deeper than surrounding skin. Microneedling will even out the complexion and improve the appearance of scars.

One of the main benefits is that skin tightens and improves long after the treatment itself. Micro needling promotes inner healing of the dermis to tighten and smooth the skin as collagen begins to lay down in a more regular manner through the layers of the skin to the upper layers where smoother more regular.

Many men and women with acne scarring are enjoying the benefits of significant reduction of scar depth even after a single treatment and although results vary from person to person and it is likely that you’ll have to undergo several treatments to get the appearance that you are looking for.

The team at SkinHealthShop have a solution and provide two options of Micro needling home hand held devices that are FDA cleared and safe enough for you to conduct your own treatments in the privacy of your own home.

You can choose from: Scientia Derma Roller – a light-weight hand held skin roller with 192 surgical steel micro-needles which part the pores of the top layer of the skin without causing skin damage. Note: Different rollers are required with different needle lengths to be able to treat a wide range of conditions.


Scientia Derma Stamp – a light-weight hand held needling devise with adjustable needle dial for a multi-purpose use. Derma Stamp is the home hand held needling devise equivalent to the Professional only use – Derma Pen.

So now you can repair your acne scarred or surgery scarred skin when you purchase your own home microneedling for acne scars device and restore your skin so that it becomes more elastic, thicker, tighter, smooth and acne scar free.

DERMAPEN ™ is an extremely important part of the procedures performed in my office. I use it both as a tool to stimulate the natural regenerative processes in patients with typical photoaging of the skin but also as a tool in the fight against acne scars and stretch marks in conjunction with peeling Easy TCA ™. This method, called Pixel Peel, is my latest discovery. The treatment is not complicated and does not exclude a patient from engaging in daily activities for too long, and gives excellent results after the first treatment. We stimulate skin regeneration through millions of punctures made with DERMAPEN ™, in addition we facilitate the penetration of peeling Easy TCA ™ for enhanced therapeutic effects. This intensive and natural stimulation of the skin gives the best results with scars and stretch marks but I use it also for deep discolorations resistant to treatment with other methods.

Dermapen Treatments - A Great Way to Reverse Sun Damage

Dermapen Treatments - A Great Way to Reverse Sun Damage

Durban – The skin – the largest organ of the human body – accounts for six percent to 10% of your body weight.

But what if you weren’t a good girl this summer and didn’t listen to all the advice on sun protection?

Visible signs of ageing from sun damage can start as early as your 20s, but it is between 35 and 49 that the damage really shows changes in your skin. So the earlier you start with sun protection, the better your chances of looking younger for longer.

Studies have shown that repeated unprotected ultraviolet exposure, even for short periods at a time, breaks down collagen. In addition, as we age, collagen production in the skin decreases and the combined effect of sun and age has a detrimental effect on our skin.

So it’s all about boosting collagen in the skin.

Fortunately all is not lost – there are various treatments available to help counter the damaged and dehydrated appearance of skin. By stimulating collagen production in the skin, the elasticity will be restored and the plump appearance of the skin will return.

Dr Maureen Allem, founder and medical director of South Africa’s Skin, Body and Health Renewal, says you can reverse the signs of dehydration and sun damage with treatments such as PDT (photo-dynamic Therapy), Dermapen/skin-needling, Pearl laser, Limelight, Cosmelan and Dermamelan peels by mesoestetic, TCA (trichloracetic acid) peel and their own 3D peel.

Photo dynamic therapy (PDT):

To stimulate the deeper skin tissue of the skin, this treatment uses a combination of visible blue and red light, as well as invisible yellow light. The right light combination must be selected for each treatment to ensure optimum results.

It can be used to:

* Soften fine lines and improve skin tone and smoothness.

* Wound healing before and after plastic surgery and ablative laser resurfacing.

* Treat precancerous skin lesions.

* Clear up a skin problem without pain or downtime.

A series of treatments will ensure maximum results.

Skin Needling (Dermapen):

Dermapen/Skin Needling is based on the fact that the skin has the ability to heal itself. After our skins experience trauma like cuts or other physical trauma, old, damaged tissue is discarded and replaced with new, fresh, healthy collagen.

Skin needling is a safe and precise way to traumatise the skin to stimulate collagen, based on the above principal. It results in a smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

The Dermapen is moved over the skin to create tiny sub-cutaneous channels. Due to the vibration of the pen, no pain is felt. The body perceives this as mini wounding and the release of growth factors are stimulated to trigger the production of collagen and elastin.

Pearl Laser:

Pearl Laser Peel Treatment is a revolutionary technique for patients to treat the top layer of skin with light pulses in a pre-selected pattern, while the laser sends heat to the deeper layers of skin simultaneously to provide longer-term benefits. The Pearl is a great treatment for patients with any level of damage to the skin as it can be set to treat more superficial, as well as deeper, skin problems, depending on the patient’s needs.

The effects are immediately visible after just one treatment and, within about four to five days, new skin will have been formed and pigmentation, wrinkles, splotchy skin and skin texture will have been improved.

Limelight: This fourth-generation IPL device has specific programme selection. This means that specific programmes can be used and customised for specific conditions. Skin is rejuvenated and shows exceptional results with minimal discomfort.

Peels: A facial peel is a procedure that renews the skin by lifting dead cells off the surface of the skin and stimulates the regeneration and renewal of the cells underneath.

Depending on the result that is required, there are different levels (and depths) and types of peels.

You can quickly achieve substantial improvement in the appearance of superficial lines and uneven pigmentation, while making your skin look and feel softer, smoother and more radiant.

Acne scars and enlarged pores may become less noticeable, and acne breakouts may be reduced.

The skin is continually undergoing natural exfoliation. As one ages, the epidermal cell turnover slows down and one’s skin becomes dull because the topmost layer consisting of dead cells becomes too thick.

This dead layer can challenge the skin, causing whiteheads, blackheads, rough texture and uneven appearance of the skin tone. The dead layer can also retard the penetration of skin products. It is also a fact that this build-up of dead cells causes a cascade of challenges in the skin, especially with age, as the bigger the build-up, the slower and slower the skin renews itself, resulting in a vicious ageing spiral.

If one exfoliates regularly, new healthy skin cells are exposed to nutrients from the air, water and daily skin products.

These nutrients are then transported to the deeper skin cells where they are needed, improving circulation, texture, healthy collagen and elastin production.

DERMAPEN ™ is one of my favorite treatments. It gives excellent results in a relatively short time treatment while the patient doesn't have to give up more than 1-2 days. I use it as a combination therapy with acid-based peels, as well as other peels based on alpha-hydroxy acids. With this combination I have excellent results in skin tone equalization, improving the voltage, reducing the visibility of pores and fine wrinkles. In order to accelerate healing after surgery, we recommend applying for a few days a special cream IPLase Mask, which relieves redness of the skin and accelerates regeneration of skin soothing at the same time acting through activation of heat shock protein secretion. Full treatment includes 3-4 treatments but patients after the first treatment see a difference in the appearance of the skin that encouraged them to continue treatment. I would recommend DERMAPEN ™ mainly in patients with dry, sallow complexion with visible discoloration and wrinkles, and as an excellent and natural prevention of photoaging of the skin.

Banish Acne Scars and Wrinkles with Micro-Needling

Banish Acne Scars and Wrinkles with Micro-Needling

Treating Acne is one thing, but attempting to remove the scars you’ve been left with as a result of this skin condition is another – however, there is an effective remedy in the treatment known as Micro-Needling. Also used in the reduction of wrinkles, Micro-Needling works by creating millions of small micro-perforations on the skin - with needles of varying depths used to correct different issues. A full-face treatment lasts approximately 25 minutes, but Micro-Needling is suitable for other parts of the body including the stomach and neck or for cellulite and Stretch Marks. “It can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. It can improve Acne scarring. It can minimise any pigment or colour differentiation that you see on the skin and make it a more uniform confluent colour,” explained Robert M Kimmel, MD at US-based Keystone Cosmetic Surgery Center. Micro-Needling typically requires a course of at least three treatments in order for the results to be fully effective, and may need touching up once a year. What treatments have you undergone to get rid of unsightly Acne scars and wrinkles? Does the idea of Micro-Needling appeal?

Dr. Anna Piwek Discusses Success with Dermapen

Practitioners at the Time Clinic often use Dermapen™, particularly in patients with typical signs of aging and photoaging of the skin. This method stimulates the production of collagen, ramps up the repair process, improves the tone and elasticity of the skin, boosts blood circulation and noutrient delivery, and reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles. Even after the first treatment the skin is more supple, firmer and tighter, and after a series of several treatments fine wrinkles become less visible. I get excellent results in patients who receive combination therapy with nutritional preparations for deeper mesotherapy. Thanks to the presence of high concentrations of amino acids, skin cells are better nourished and respond quicker to Dermapen treatments than other.

Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery Announces the Introduction of Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma

Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery Announces the Introduction of Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma

Dr. Robert H. Burke and the staff of the Michigan Center for Cosmetic announce the introduction of microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) the latest innovation in nonsurgical skin rejuvenation. 

A single use, sterile treatment tip with 12 micro needles is attached to a micro vibrating handpiece and passed over the areas to be treated at controlled depths depending on the severity of the condition and the goals of treatment. This creates microchannels through the skin, providing a pathway for delivery of optimizing medications and growth factors to the formative cells which ultimately result in improvements in fine to moderate lines, color, texture, and volume of the skin. This can also be used to treat sun damaged skin, acne scars, scars from surgery or injury, and stretchmarks.

Adding your own platelet rich plasma through a process of drawing a small amount of your blood, and placing it in a centrifuge to separate out your own growth factors, then applying to the skin surface microchannels results in even more improvement.

“This is part of our holistic, natural approach to aesthetic skin care. Nothing is more natural for you than your own growth factors concentrated so that they result in more youthful and vibrant skin,” says Dr. Burke.

The Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery is committed to providing noninvasive and minimally invasive solutions to those seeking a more youthful appearance. “We strive to provide safe, scientifically based cosmetic surgical patient care,” according to Dr. Burke.

Dr. Burke, is a Clinical Professor at Michigan State University and an Adjunct Clinical Professor at the University of Michigan. He is principal investigator in FDA studies of silicone breast implants for Mentor and Allergan Corporations, and in IRB approved laser research projects with Erconia and Quanta laser corporations.
