About a Quarter of Plastic Surgeons Offer In-Office Treatments
A recent survey of physician incomes revealed that plastic surgery was among the top ten highest paid medical specialties. The average salary of a plastic surgeon was $321,000, and this was even higher for those who were self-employed in a group practice, with an average salary of about $383,000. Plastic surgeons made about twice as much as the lowest-paying medical specialty in the survey, making plastic surgery a lucrative choice for medical students to consider. Plastic surgeons had seen about a 1.3 percent increase in salary since 2012, reflecting the general increase in popularity of cosmetic procedures. While surgery made up the bulk of the average plastic surgeon's salary, about 22 percent of plastic surgeons also offered extra services in their office. This included less-invasive cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion, chemical peels, and cosmetic injections. The popularity of cosmetic injections, such as JUVÉDERM® ULTRA 3 injections, has been increasing in recent [Read more]
What are the side effects of Restylane Perlane and other Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers
Unlike facial fillers such as silicone, which could cause granulomas to form, and collagen, which required an allergy test, dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid are generally safe and well-received by most patients. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance normally found in your patients' connective tissue and joints, so it should not generally cause an allergic reaction or another severe reaction. However, even hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like RESTYLANE® PERLANE® can cause some side effects for your patients. One side effect all your patients will likely experience is some pain or discomfort at the injection site. This is an unavoidable consequence of using a needle to inject RESTYLANE® PERLANE® into your patient's dermis. However, this is easy to avoid by using an anesthetic. One option is to use an EMLA™ cream to numb your patient's skin in the treatment area. However, this may mean your patient has to wait for the anesthetic to take effect. You can also purchase som [Read more]
How to Introduce Cosmetic Injectables Into Your Medical Practice
There is great demand for cosmetic injectables, and the industry is booming. Most experts expect the popularity of cosmetic injectables to continue their growth in the coming years, and as more and more people opt for cosmetic treatments, more and more medical professionals are needed to provide the treatments. The popularity of Medspas and other dedicated cosmetic facilities is growing, and they seem to be popping up everywhere these days. However, many other medical professionals offer cosmetic injections, like TEOSYAL® GLOBAL ACTION, in their practice. This includes plastic surgeons and dermatologists of course, but a variety of other doctors from family doctors to other medical specialists are now offering cosmetic injections as part of their practice. Even dentists in some areas are offering cosmetic injections, as they improve the look of their patients' teeth and then expand that treatment area to include their patients' mouth and surrounding skin. The growing cosmetic [Read more]
Finding an Alternative to a Dermal Filler
When it comes to cosmetic treatments, everyone has their preferences. This goes both for doctors like you and your patients. The most common wrinkle-fighting products are usually either botulinum toxin-based wrinkle relaxing injections or dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. Each has their advantages and each has their treatment type that they work best for, but there are other products out there that can give similar wrinkle-reducing results but in a different way. One such product is SCULPTRA®, made by Sanofi Aventis. Unlike products like RESTYLANE® and JUVÉDERM®, which are made with hyaluronic acid, SCULPTRA® is made from poly-L-lactic acid microspheres. Sometimes SCULPTRA® is grouped in with dermal fillers, but it actually fights wrinkles in a different way. Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid instantly plump up your patient's skin when you inject them, smoothing out the wrinkles that way. However, SCULPTRA® does not instantly add volume and plump your pati [Read more]
Capitalizing on the Growing Facial Injectable Market
The cosmetic treatment market has been growing in recent years, and is expected to keep growing. In fact, in North America alone the facial injectable market is expected to grow to over $1.7 billion by the year 2017, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. There are a few different things driving this growth. For one, the population is aging as the baby boomer generation, the largest demographic group, reaches retirement age. This means that there are more older people in the world, driving demand for medical services related to aging, either essential or cosmetic. The medical field as a whole is expected to grow as the population ages, so any medical products and services that are needed by older patients will likely see an increase. This means that those in the business of providing medical products and services will be in demand in the foreseeable future. This includes you. After all, medicine is not only about treating illness and preventing death. Medicine i [Read more]
Using Cosmetic Treatments to Succeed in Business
The business world can be competitive, both when getting a job and when trying to land that big client for the firm. What people say and how they say it matters in the business world, but so does appearance. Most hiring managers would not want to admit it, but they would rather hire a young go-getter than an aging candidate. The older jobseeker may be out of touch with trends or may be prone to age-related illness, or so goes the stereotype. Even if this is not true, first impressions are everything, and if the jobseekers look old, they are automatically at a disadvantage. The same is true of clients, who may judge a prospective account manager by their appearance. To combat this unspoken age discrimination, many men and women are trying to get ahead in business by looking younger. When the smart suit and the slick hairdo are not enough, many turn to cosmetic treatments to gain an advantage. Since fine lines and wrinkles can betray their age, many patients opt for dermal fill [Read more]
Reversing the Effects of Smoking on Your Patient's Skin
Many people started smoking without knowing the effects that it can have on the human body, and even science is finding out more and more every day. Most people are aware now of the link between smoking and cancer, but they may not be aware of some of the other effects that smoking can have. Many anti-smoking campaigns now aimed at young women highlight what long-term smokers are starting to see in their own faces: smoking can affect your beauty. Even when your patients quit smoking, they are still left with the skin damage that all those years of smoking have caused. What are the effects that smoking can have on your patients' skin? Besides cancer, smoking can cause premature aging of the skin. Often your smoker patients end up looking much older than their true age, with many more wrinkles than their non-smoking peers. With cigarette smoke exposure, your patients' skin can be damaged by all the chemicals, becoming drier, saggier, and wrinklier. These patients need your hel [Read more]
Educating Your Male Patients About Cosmetic Treatments
Almost everyone has heard of BOTOX®, so often that is the treatment people think of when they think wrinkle treatments. Many women are aware of a wider variety of wrinkle treatments because they hear about them from their social circle. Men often do not have this knowledge simply because most men do not discuss anti-aging or any beauty-related treatments with their peers. Since cosmetic treatments are more taboo for men, they suffer from this lack of information. This is something you should keep in mind when male patients come into your clinic. Men will often come into your clinic thinking BOTOX® is their only wrinkle-fighting option, and sometimes they do not make it into your clinic at all because they are afraid of BOTOX® injections. It is important to let the men who come into your clinic know about your wide range of wrinkle treatment options, such as dermal fillers like RESTYLANE® With Lidocaine. However, it is also important to spread the message as much as possibl [Read more]
