5 Tips For Successful Aesthetic Practice Of Nurses

Posted by DavidHarley on October 2nd, 2016

The career in cosmetic medicine for nurses can be highly satisfying and rewarding. It is an exciting venture which offers innovative and interesting skills which you can practice to become an accomplished aesthetic nurse. The field also requires you to utilise your already learned and mastered nursing skills to their full potential.     

Once you have got the proper education and cosmetic nurse training, you can either opt to work under the supervision of a cosmetic doctor at some aesthetic clinic or can operate your own independent aesthetic clinic where you can offer various non-surgical aesthetic treatments. But opening and running your own clinic successfully is not as easy as it sounds. Here is some useful advice for you to start and maintain a successful independent cosmetic clinic.

1.    Get the proper training: according to the recent reports of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the non-surgical cosmetic injectable procedures such as Botox and Dermal fillers accounts for a large number of non-surgical aesthetic procedures. The figures are almost similar for the UK.
Therefore having a strong knowledge, practical background and cosmetic nurse training in these procedures will do more good for your aesthetic practice than a superficial knowledge of the 18 different but uncommon aesthetic treatments.

2.    Reputation counts: the simple idea behind building a strong reputation is to build a strong and positive relationship with your clients. They will keep on coming back to your for the repeat treatment after 3-4 months and will also make recommendations to their family and friends. The word of mouth plays a significant role in the development of a successful practice. Personal referrals about the quality of your work will bring loyal clients to your aesthetic clinic.

3.    Make preparations: Although there is no need of having a business background to start your independent aesthetic practice, you need to develop some basic infrastructure and gain experience before you finally began your aesthetic practice. To do this you need to:

•    Get cosmetic nurse training from a reputed aesthetic training institute
•    Have registration as a self-employed
•    Contact a good insurance company for cosmetic insurance
•    Get the necessary equipment and supplies
•    Create a robust and efficient consent system
•    Do planning in case any problem arises
•    Work in real clinical settings to gain experience

4.    Keep on improving your learning: once you have gained a solid knowledge and practice in the foundation injectable skills, you can advance and diversify your skills, further. Investing in your learning and cosmetic nurse training is the best thing you can do to boost your career and profession. You need to nourish and flourish your skills in order to survive in this highly competitive industry. Attain every opportunity to polish your skills by attending workshops, conferences and enrolling in advanced aesthetic training courses.

5.    Become a good listener: one of the signs of good communication is active listening. When patients come to you for treatment, they may show signs of worry or apprehensions about the treatment. They will only be expressive if you will be welcoming and open to them and rephrase what they are trying to say. Always give a sufficient time to a comprehensive patient consultation. Also give a post treatment follow up in order to improve your relationship with your patients and to improve your learning.
