Dentist Turning To Cosmetics
While you may be working hard to offer the latest in cosmetic dental treatments, from laser teeth whitening to invisible braces, you might be wondering whether there are any other areas where you can expand.
That's why many dentists are now offering a range of aesthetic and laser treatments that are simple and highly sought after. Here are a few procedures that you could provide from your dental practice to boost your patient numbers.
Botox and injectables
Many men and women now use Botox and other injectables on a regular basis, and they often want these treatments carried out in their lunch break. Because they are quick, convenient, and don't involve any recovery time, they can be carried out on a regular basis and many people who wouldn't consider traditional plastic surgery use them to stay looking youthful.
Offering services such as Botox in your practice has many advantages. Treatments are short and straightforward, and as they are regularly given, it can become a good source of income. Injectables such as Botox used to be able to be administered by anyone who had done a short course, but countries such as the UK are now cracking down on these operations.
You now have to be a medical practitioner who can give prescriptions, i.e. a doctor, dentist, or nurse prescriber to provide Botox. Because dentists have medical qualifications already, it, therefore, doesn't take long to learn to administer injectables and fillers. With fewer people now offering these in-demand treatments, now could be a good time to offer them at your surgery.
Laser Hair Removal
Another treatment that's very popular is laser hair removal treatments.
Therefore, it's an easy thing to market and sell to potential customers, and it'll no doubt bring lots of new people through your door.
Laser hair removal has dramatically improved over the years, and our machines, have excellent safety features and allow you to offer effective result driven treatments that work!
Either if your choose an IPL, Diode laser or Nd: Yag machine for laser hair removal, it can also be used to smooth out discoloured skin caused by melanin and vascular pigmentation, therefore giving you another service you can offer.
Those who carry these treatments will need training, and since dentists already have lots of clinical experience, they will find the training easier than non-medical staff.

Laser Tattoo Removal
Around 14% of people regret getting one or more of their tattoos, and with the number of people getting inked on the rise, tattoo removal will no doubt be big business in the future.
People want their tattoos removed in a safe and clean environment; it makes sense to offer these services in a dental practice where people know the staff are trustworthy.
With tattoos getting more complex and colourful, it's important to get the most up to date equipment such as the inkaway Nd: YAG Laser. Over the course of a few treatments, ink is broken down and fades, eventually removing the tattoo.
These machines are easy to use, with a qualified & experienced medical professional carrying out the training course. If you invest in one of these devices, you will enjoy a two-year warranty, so you know they'll cope with daily use and be as reliable as possible.
