Laser treatments are now an integral part of cosmetic health care in the modern world. Lasers are a non-invasive and cost-effective solution for a number of aesthetic needs and areas of the body.
From hair removal to skin rejuvenation and even eye surgeries, there’s no doubt that the advent of laser treatments has revolutionized modern skin treatments. That’s why we include lasers in our comprehensive Certified Aesthetic Provider™ (CAP) program.
Today, offering cosmetic laser / IPL procedures including hair removal, skin rejuvenation, fractional skin resurfacing, skin tightening, QuantaUSA multi-color tattoo removal and other emerging procedures is essential in order to have a successful aesthetic practice or medical spa.
IAPAM’s Aesthetic Laser & Body Contouring Certificiate represents the most comprehensive minimally invasive modality training for physicians new to the aesthetic medicine field.
Physicians and their medical staff are trained in the best practices for device-based aesthetic medicine treatments using lasers, light sources and radio frequency devices to grow their education and grow their practice.
You can complete this training as a stand-alone online self-study certificate or included as part of the IAPAM’s exclusive Certified Aesthetic Provider™ (CAP) program.
You will also learn about tattoo removal, another highly sought aesthetic medical treatment by patients who got tattoos – many as young adults – and now regret their decision.
Our comprehensive training covers the following:
Aesthetic laser treatments can be used to treat a multitude of cosmetic concerns with little or no down time. All lasers work by producing a single wavelength (color) of light.
In essence the laser produces a controlled injury to the skin that causes just the right amount of damage to promote new cell growth.
Laser treatment can smooth wrinkles and tighten the skin, making them highly sought after by patients who want to look younger. Laser skin treatments are effective at:
If one were to look at the statistics in the US, over 45 million Americans currently have at least one tattoo.
Of this group, 36% of them range between the ages of 18-25 years, while around 49% are between 26 -40 years.
A large majority of the population have black ink tattoos, and 70% of the total population who have tattoos are women.
It is clear that the potential patient population is huge. As the number of tattoos increases, so will the need for tattoo removal. In fact, 17% of the above population group regret ever getting a tattoo – this amounts to over 7.6 million people.
If you are looking to expand your practice and have more patients attend your clinic, then adding tattoo removal to your service is definitely the way forward.
The numbers are clear from the previously discussed statistics, and the potential to increase your patient base is big.
The average tattoo removal cost is $200, and each procedure takes around 15 minutes to perform. If you were to perform 3 – 4 procedures an hour, that could mean an additional $800 a day. The income stream just does not end there. Patients often need 6 to 7 sittings of treatments, making the average income per patient around $1200 to $1400.
Some centers that have already started offering this procedure are seeing an increase in monthly income of around $20,000.
