Have you been thinking about training in facial aesthetics but are still not entirely decided? If you’re a medical professional, the non-surgical cosmetic sector offers great opportunities for a fruitful and rewarding career. Today we will be sharing 8 reasons why our delegates choose to train in this industry to help you decide.
Greater Income Opportunities
It’s well known that the private sector pays well, and with non-invasive medical aesthetic procedures accounting for approximately £13 billion ($16.7bn) per year, with that number expected to rise 4.5% over the next 5 years, the demand for cosmetic injectables has never been higher. With such high demand from clients all over the world, the possibilities for increasing your income are infinite. Derma Medical also offers a Complete Guide to Aesthetic Business for Medical Professionals course which will teach you all the tools you need to set up and run a successful business in this industry. It’s not uncommon for aesthetic practitioners to earn £1,000 + from one busy clinic working for a cosmetic clinic.
Choose Your Own Working Hours
Let’s be honest, shift work can sometimes mean you miss out on important events with friends and family, and your sleep patterns can be all over the place. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to choose when and for how long you work? By training in cosmetic injectables you will be able to have the freedom of choice as to which days you choose to see clients and at hours that suit your lifestyle. There are also many options as to how you operate your practice, which we expand on here in our blog post on 4 ways to supplement your income in aesthetics.
Expand Your Clinical Skills
There’s a real sense of satisfaction in learning a new skill that you can apply to your career, and as a medical professional who has completed years of training, it’s clear that you have a thirst for knowledge. Being able to diversify your expertise gives you a wider range of career options and adds an opportunity to apply these new skills by working in a new and exciting industry. By completing our courses, either individually or as a package you will receive certification of attendance which will allow you to obtain your cosmetic indemnity insurance and begin practising straight away. We do also offer the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine for those who are looking to acquire a new qualification. On top of this. Most of our courses are CPD accredited.
Add Variety to Your Career
Doing the same job, day in and day out can become tedious for anyone in any profession, luckily for medical professionals there is the opportunity to use your medical qualification to learn an entirely new skill and use that to add some variety to your work. Whether you choose to practise aesthetics part-time alongside your job at the NHS or you decide to work in aesthetics full-time, every day will be different, creating the perfect, bespoke look for your clients.
The pressure on medical professionals is huge. Long shifts with minimal time to take breaks along with emotionally and physically demanding tasks makes for a stressful day-to-day work life. Working in either your own or an already established clinic allows for a calmer environment seeing one client at a time with scheduled breaks allows you to take the time you need to create the result your client is looking for. Work days can be shorter if you desire, so you can spend more time at home with your loved ones.
An Opportunity to be Creative
The facial aesthetic industry is where science and art come together. Being a skilled injector is as much about having an artistic eye as it is your clinical knowledge. The opportunity to be creative in your job is something many people look for. The satisfaction of creating a truly bespoke look for your client using your cosmetic injector skills is second to none. Dermal fillers have come a long way in recent years, with new and exciting ways to effectively use this product to alter a person’s appearance that in the past, would have required surgery. With dermal fillers you can sculpt a person’s dream cheekbones or create a chin that will perfectly balance your client’s profile.
Create Lasting Relationships with Your Patients
A good injector will always get repeat business. Anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments are not permanent, so you can expect to see your anti-wrinkle clients every 3-4 months, and dermal filler patients every 6-12 months. It’s incredibly important to take the time to create lasting relationships with your clients, so that they feel like they are safe in your hands and trust your advice. If you take time to nurture these relationships, not only will it make your days more enjoyable and feel like you’re catching up with old friends, but it will make for a sustainable and successful business.
A Rewarding and Enjoyable Career
All the above points all boil down to the fact that working in cosmetic injectables makes for a very rewarding and enjoyable job. Not only does it allow for a better work/life balance, but it gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, and earn a great income whilst doing so. Whether you choose to supplement your income with aesthetics or you choose to make this a full-time career, there is no doubt that this industry is an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable one.
