Medical aesthetic procedures are not only becoming more and more popular; they’re also becoming increasingly embraced by the general public. Experts chalk it up to everything from the rise of virtual work environments and being constantly on camera to greater social acceptance of men’s desire to enhance their appearance to more and more celebrities talking openly about their cosmetic procedures.
Whatever it is, the demand for aesthetic medicine is booming, leading many nurses, doctors, and even dentists to recognize the market opportunity in a Botox-based business. While building a profitable business is the most obvious incentive for starting any new venture, there are multiple benefits to opening a Botox-based business that go well beyond increasing your ROI.
- Add More Fun Into Your Profession
If you ask enough aesthetics practitioners about their work, you’ll notice a theme that tends to run through their answers. This theme is fun—combining art and science in highly individualized ways; identifying the perfect combinations of products, approaches, and techniques to meet their clients’ wants and needs; and seeing the beautiful results, they can create all of this with the latest tools in their aesthetics toolkit.
- Work in a Healthier Work Environment
Aesthetic medicine is the only medical specialty where healthcare professionals work almost exclusively with healthy patients. Not only does this mean less exposure to pathogens in your work environment, it often means an atmosphere that’s much more light and upbeat than you’ll typically find in any other kind of clinical setting. (After all, what other patient population can you think of whose members routinely look forward to visiting their provider?)
- Escape Managed Care
Many sharp critiques have been leveled at the managed care model that has come to dominate institutional instantiations of modern medicine. Many researchers have cited the impersonal bureaucracy of managed care as running a high risk of demoralizing and dehumanizing healthcare providers and patients alike. The shortest way out of the managed care model for many nurses and doctors lies in pivoting their careers to aesthetic medicine.
- Flex Your Entrepreneurial Muscle
For those who have always had an entrepreneurial itch to scratch, opening a Botox-based business can finally give you the freedom to be your own boss. You get to build your business on your terms, becoming the architect of a venture that can be whatever you envision it to be. Who knows? You may find that you have as much of a business person inside of you as a medical practitioner.
- Make Your Patients Feel Like a Million Bucks
What other medical specialty can you think of where your patients can leave your office feeling more beautiful, more confident, and excited about their treatment outcome? Aesthetic medicine is truly unique in that it gives you the power to help patients feel wonderful on both the inside and outside.
- Create a Mood-Boosting Office Ambiance
One of the best things about starting a Botox-based business is practicing in an office ambiance that is about as far removed from a hospital or typical clinical setting as you can imagine. No more fluorescent lights, lackluster interior design, and lack of welcoming sights, sounds, and scents in your work environment. Instead, you’ll have a chance to create an environment that is beautiful, positive, uplifting, and even inspiring—which can do wonders for your mood!
- Channel Your Inner Event Planner
Because medical aesthetics fall in the category of luxury expenditures, you’ll love the chance you’ll have to host promotional events and build relationships with your patients. These events often have a strong social element and function like informal cocktail parties. Mixing and mingling are encouraged and expected, and value-added activities are typically part of the event. These activities can include introductions to new aesthetics products, product demonstrations, patient education, buy-2-get-1-free specials (especially during the holidays), or other incentives designed to elevate your brand, increase patient loyalty, and attract newcomers to your business.
