Economy May Be Sluggish, But Botox Sales Continue To Rise

Economy May Be Sluggish, But Botox Sales Continue To Rise

Botox Upward trendNo matter what you think about the state of the economy as a whole, Botox sales are continuing to rise — often at a double-digit clip. That means now’s a great time to benefit from a Botox training course.

No one knows more about the benefits of Botox than Allergan’s CEO David Pyott. He’s nearing 60 years old and his forehead doesn’t show any wrinkles. That’s because his company makes Botox as well as some dermal fillers. And because of that, he doesn’t really have anything to worry about.

The firm, when last we checked, was worth perhaps $26 billion, and sales continue to climb. And while many CEOs at big pharmaceutical companies tend to stay just four or five years, Pyott has been at the helm of Allergan more than a decade and a half.

Through the economic downturn of the mid 2000s, his firm proved how American companies can thrive even if the economy isn’t.

You see, Allergan may be known for wrinkle preparations, breast implants and fillers like Juvederm, but Allergan gets half its revenues from prescription medications that treat serious medical conditions. So they’re in the cosmetic industry and also in the business of helping people in other ways. If you add cosmetic Botox to your practice, you could join them in that dual business.

You see, Allergan has wholeheartedly embraced the idea that the American and worldwide population is aging. Today’s aging population is determined to stave off the signs of time in whatever ways are possible, and Botox is one of those ways. Even in 2009 when most companies experienced falling sales, Botox held steady. And by 2010, sales were above the 2008 levels. Sales in 2012 were nearly $2 billion. And shouldn’t your practice be getting your share of the Botox administering business?

If you think about it, Botox is one of the most recognizable consumer brands in our nation and has a huge market share compared to similar products. That’s because people want to look better and perhaps a few years younger, meaning it’s now a social trend to alter your appearance to cheat aging just a bit. That benefits Allergan and practices that offer Botox because the product markets itself. People already have the demand, and the product simply steps in to meet that demand.

A bad economy could actually benefit the aesthetics market. People must invest in their looks when times are bad for professional reasons as well as personal ones. As the financial crisis was at its height, one plastic surgeon who offers Botox in New York City (more about our Botox training program in New York) said that he had no trouble getting people to pay $200 per Botox treatment and $500 per syringe of Juvederm.

The same strength in the marketplace has been seen for breast implants, which some consider a related procedure. In both 2009 and 2010, expensive cosmetic surgeries went down in popularity because of the cost and the fact that many of these procedures require missing time from work. But in the following years, breast implants have increased in popularity along with less invasive cosmetic treatments, indicating overall strong demand for cosmetic procedures of many different kind.

Botox is also increasing in demand overseas. That bodes well for the continuation of the Botox trend. There are millions of citizens of India, China and even Brazil and other nations who are turning to Botox and similarly affordable cosmetic procedures. These consumers are maturing along with their developing nations and starting to take on many of the habits once reserved for Americans. This trend started with soft drinks and continues with fast food, movies, expensive coffee drinks, fancy cars and now Botox and related cosmetic procedures that their doctors can learn as quickly and easily as American ones.

The CEO promotes an important factor that has kept an American company like Allergan in the lead in its industry when foreign companies control so many other aspects of American business: innovation. Allergan has invested greatly in research and development in recent years. In fact, it invested just less than $700 million in 2009 and increased that amount to nearly $900 million 2011. It went up to $1 billion in 2013. As many of as 19 percent of the 10,500 people who work for the company are employed in some aspect of research and development. It even added capacity in New Jersey recently at a time when other companies in its industry are still floundering.

Additionally, Allergan has never been content to consider Botox only a cosmetic drug. There are problems in the world other than wrinkles, and Botox can be used to help correct some of them. That’s why only about half of all Botox sales today are for cosmetic purposes. The rest is sold for therapeutic purposes. There are 85 nations in the world that approve Botox injections for the treatment of as many of 25 different conditions. This includes neurogenic bladder conditions in people with spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis as well as TMD and similar conditions. It is also approved for chronic migraines.

The Affordable Care Act will cost Allergan some money in additional fees. But that’s nothing for the CEO to frown about given the increasing sales.

And adding Botox injections to any sort of medical or dental practice isn’t anything to frown about either. It can lead to additional patients and procedures that can lead, in turn, to additional income. And it all starts with a quick and simple online Botox training class.

Can You Get In On The Expected 50 Percent Growth In Botox?

Can You Get In On The Expected 50 Percent Growth In Botox?

Botox upward trendIf you’ve had Botox training from Dentox, you’re poised to get in on the 50 percent growth of Botox demand expected over the coming decade. According to a report last year, that’s how big the demand for botulinum toxin type A cosmetic procedures will be.

Over the preceding decade, demand for Botox injections has already been strong and steady. Even as so many economic indicators dipped sharply in the recession of 2008, Botox demand slipped only a little.

Millions of people get Botox every year, and why shouldn’t you get in on the profits from these easy-to-administer shots? After all, the training is quick and easy, and the startup costs for your practice are small.


So why is demand increasing? Here are 11 important reasons:

1. Botox has come of age. Once something only celebrities did, getting Botox injections is now mainstream — and something that people from all walks of life are embracing. As a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, treatment is easy and quick — and patients don’t need to take time off work. Plus, it’s increasingly easy to find local providers — especially if more medical professionals like you will add it to their practice offerings.

2. There’s been a shift in cultural values. There’s greater social acceptance than ever before of aesthetic injections. Just a decade ago, many people considered Botox injections vain or even silly, but people have a great level of acceptance now. That’s partly because of increasing media coverage of celebrities who openly have Botox treatments and the growing acceptance of beauty treatments overall. This social acceptance is expected to grow even more in the coming decades.

3. People spend more on beauty products and services. According to statistics, women now spend nearly $500 billion a year on beauty products. And that doesn’t take into consideration the spending men do on beauty products as well. The economy is looking up, and so is the projected level of spending on beauty treatments and products — and that includes Botox injections.

4. Botox spending doesn’t depend on the economy. Even when the economy has been bad, people have proven that they will still get Botox. Sales of Botox dipped only slightly in the economic downturn of 2008 and 2009 while other treatments and sales fell more dramatically. Then after the downturn, sales of Botox quickly jumped by double digits even though much of the economy recovered very slowly.

5. Botox treatment methods have gotten better. Those who inject Botox are being trained better than ever before, and Botox injectors now realize that these treatments require more than a cookie-cutter approach. Results are so much better than a decade ago because injectors are better than ever. When you get Botox training today, you’re trained in techniques that didn’t exist a few years ago. And because patients are more satisfied with results, they’re more likely to choose Botox treatment again and again.

6. The age group 40-54 is growing. This group is mature in their careers in many cases and often earns a high wage. And they need to take action to stave off aging to keep their jobs and continue advancing in their chosen career fields, so they spend on a variety of beauty products. This age group is getting larger every day as well. You’ll notice anti-aging products being advertised to this group more than in the past, so even more of these Baby Boomers are becoming aware of the issue. This group accounts for as much as 50 percent of the Botox market, and with additional education as well as the continued maturing of society, this group will grow further.

7. Young adults are increasingly turning to Botox. In fact, the demand has never been higher for Botox among people in their 30s. The growth in this group has been about 4 percent a year. That makes sense because at age 35, skin begins to lose elasticity as collagen production decreases. Lines and wrinkles begin to show up. And thanks to better education of the public about Botox, people in their 30s now know that Botox is a viable and readily available treatment option. Still, this market remains relatively untapped by comparison with the older age group, so there is enormous potential there for those who get into the Botox injection business to grab these clients as they age into the group and then keep them for life.

8. People are becoming aware of preventative Botox. Younger people are starting to realize that Botox isn’t just used for correction of cosmetic issues. Studies have made it clear that Botox can actually prevent lines and wrinkles of the face from developing and from becoming more noticeable if they’ve already developed. This is a relatively new finding, so potential clients are only just coming around to this reality. If face muscles can’t form or strengthen lines, the lines will be less prominent throughout the patient’s lifetime. Young adults are only now learning that a proactive approach using Botox can make a significant difference in the way they look later in life.

9. The “bro-tox” era has arrived. Men are more frequently choosing Botox, dermal fillers and related cosmetic procedures than ever before. Demand from 2000 until the present increased among men more than 300 percent. Many men want to get rid of their furrowed brows in favor of a more fit, youthful and refreshed look. Lines can equate to stress, worry and anger, and those things don’t make a positive impression. With more competition in the workplace and the social scene, this pressure has never been stronger than it is now. Men are still just a small percentage of all Botox clients, so a medical professional just getting Botox training has a large pool of male potential clients he or she can tap into.

10. Off-label usage of Botox is growing. While Botox is FDA-approved for only a limited number of areas on the face, advanced Botox injectors are using it to treat more areas than ever before. Botox Cosmetic is being used with great success to treat the depressor anguli oris muscles to correct dropping of the mouth corners. And it can be used with care to tighten the neck and improve the profile. Many experts predict that off-label use will continue to grow, and some off-label uses could also become FDA-approved. Either way, this increases the overall usage of Botox.

11. New uses for Botox have recently been approved. Originally, Botox was approved in 2002 to treat frown lines. One of the most recently approved uses is for lateral canthal lines — or crow’s feet. As more and more uses are proven, additional FDA approvals will be granted, adding to the uses for this preparation and the publicity and public knowledge about it. Of course, this even further increases the already strong demand for Botox injections and well-trained medical professionals to do the injections.

What it boils down to is this: more and more people are opting for the needle to meet their cosmetic needs. And that increases the need for injectors and the financial opportunities for those who decide to get Botox training and go into the Botox injection business.

Where Botox is concerned, there’s more than enough demand to go around.

How to Treat Cervical Dystonia with Botox

How to Treat Cervical Dystonia with Botox

cervical dystonia botox injection sitesCervical Dystonia is a condition that has lately been highlighted because of its increased incidence. Rather, the incidence is the same, but the diagnosis has become more accurate. Cervical dystonia is also called spastic or spasmodic torticollis, a condition in which there is ‘wry neck’, or twisting of the muscles of the neck on one side. This can be moderately to severely painful, and may become a transient or chronic condition. Women are affected more commonly than men, especially in their middle ages. The neck develops this random, automatic ‘swing’ to the front or back, and it can be very sudden too. The condition generally stabilizes after reaching a particular intensity, and can actually undergo spontaneous remission on its own, but this does not happen very often. Treatment is by need, supportive, as there is no cure for it, but good pain management and treatment approach can make a world of difference to the patient’s quality of life.

One such treatment approach is Botox. Botox is very well known because of its role in cosmetic medicine, but it has tremendous therapeutic applications as well. Botox is basically a derivative of the Botulinum toxin that is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This potent toxin is used in minuscule amounts and injected into the muscles that have contracted and caused to the neck to ‘wry’, or spasmodically contract on one side. When injected, the tiny dose of Botox acts at a block at a site called the neuromuscular junction, and blocks Acetylcholine, the messenger from the nerves that tells the muscles what to do. When this ‘message’ or stimulus is interrupted, the muscles no longer contract, and the tension in the neck is released. This has to be done in very small doses, and individually into each muscle that has contractured, therefore Botox is useful for conditions like cervical dystonia, where small muscle groups are involved. It cannot be used in large doses or for generalized dystonias where large muscle groups are affected.

While the relief is not immediate, it is effective and in about 4-6 days, a very significant reduction in the torticollis can be seen and felt. It can be measured by an electromyograph as well. Patients do not hold the awkward neck posture that they were previously forced to, and the respite can last up to 4 months, with proper application of Botox. The treatment can be repeated as necessary, but it is management for the cervical dystonia, not the cure. Occurrence of side effects is very rare, usually limited to a little pain or minor bruising at the site of pain, which quickly diminishes. Very few patients have significant adverse effects like drooping of the eyelids, or difficulty is swallowing, etc. If these are very pronounced, then they should be told to the doctor, to discuss alternate routes and treatment plans, but again, this is a rare occurrence.

The type of botulinum toxin to be used is usually decided upon by the doctor. Generally, people above the age of sixteen can be given Botox to treat cervical dystonia, as long as they have no history of allergic reaction to Botox or no serious side effects. It is avoided in women who are pregnant or breast feeding as it is not confirmed whether or not Botox can reach the baby, but everyone else is a potential candidate for Botox to treat cervical dystonia. Botox helps these patients in regaining their posture and restoring their quality of life with better muscle and pain management.

Review of Dentox’s Online Botox Training Course

Online Botox learningBeing a healthcare professional can be a maddening job if you lack time management skills. With the hours we have to put in, the hours we need to put in for becoming good at what we do, already take away most of the day, and sometimes well into the weekend too. Needing to take an additional course can be nearly impossible to do without compromising working hours or free time, but this is where the beauty of Dentox’s online Botox training course comes in. The course is, as the name suggests, online. You don’t need to go haring off to the opposite side of the city in the middle of rush hour just to make your class- you can study and take it at a place and time convenient to you. In addition, the course work is in no way compromised by the fact that it is online. It is fully comprehensive, detailed, and outlines everything you could need to know about offering quality Botox to your patients, in your own practice as well.

The biggest feature of the Dentox online Botox training course is the fact that it is taught under Dr. Howard Katz, the very man with his name on the Botox patent. While it is not a live lecture with him (obviously, since it’s online), it’s a semi live interaction with a supervisor online who is at hand continually to clear any doubts you might have, about everything from the contents and tyoes of different Botulinum toxins used, the various procedures you can use, the methods of administering Botox, where and how the best way to inject are- and this is just the medical side of things, They also teach you the legal side of things, how and where you will need a license, certification details, etc. Completing the course gives you physical certification from Dr Katz himself, including a direct line of communication with him for asking doubts and queries not just during the course of the online training, but after you’ve finished the course as well. It’s the only course that has Dr Katz supervising- and who better to teach than one of the very makers of Botox?

Not only are Botulinum toxins covered, but there is detailed review of the indications for the different toxins, like Botox, Dysport, Myoblock, Xeomin, etc. Dermal fillers are also examined in detail, as well as FDA approved techniques and off label techniques for managing other issues that can be resolved with Botulinum toxins such as chronic migraines, temporomandibular joint disorders, chronic pain, jaw aches, as well as the obvious- cosmetic approaches needed to remove wrinkles, and give the patient plumper, fuller and more supple skin. Because Botox can be given by anyone with a license, but patients are not stupid. Everyone looks at their doctor’s or healthcare provider’s credentials before approaching them for a procedure that’s going to be performed on their face. Certification from Dr Katz is as good as it gets- the best. The course even counts as continued medical education credit, so that’s another benefit, and even covers all emergency measures you could possibly need, side effects, adverse effects, precautions and safety. This is the best opportunity for any healthcare professionals who want to advance their practice, but in experience and in patient traffic.

Cosmetics Growth Being Driven By Proliferation Of Botox

Cosmetics Growth Being Driven By Proliferation Of Botox

botoxThe growth in the plastic surgery industry is continuing to be driven by Botox, dermal fillers and chemical peels, the most popular cosmetic procedures for several years in a row, according to information released recently. And it isn’t just cosmetic surgeons who are benefiting from this trend. Any medical professional with Botox training can get in on the act.

Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons proven that the trend is still growing. As many as 15 million procedures of one kind or another are done each year, many by dentists, estheticians and other medical professionals.

The significant growth in minimally invasive procedures has widened the field of medical professionals who can participate in the growth of the trend, according to experts. Growth in the number of invasive surgical procedures is actually stable or showing only slight growth.

The skin-smoothing treatment called microdermabrasion is also among those growing in popularity, with a rise of nearly 10 percent a year being seen. Laser hair removal, chemical peels and dermal fillers are among minimally invasive procedures seeing the same kind of moderate but impressive growth that Botox is experiencing.

Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures account for perhaps 13 million procedures a year, while surgery accounts for just over 1.5 million. Most surgeries are facelifts or breast enlargements.

Body contouring and tummy tucks also remain popular cosmetic procedures.

Breast enhancement procedures have been on the decline by 5 to 10 percent a year, but they’re still the most common invasive cosmetic procedures.

The statistics and anecdotal evidence together show that there’s no end in sight to the trend toward minimally invasive cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers and Botox injections, both taught during Botox training courses.

When you take the Dentox Botox training course, you’re putting yourself in the middle of a trend that can carry you toward greater profits for many years to come. And the stats backs that up.

How To Market Your Botox Services Intelligently And Creatively

How To Market Your Botox Services Intelligently And Creatively

botox marketingIf you’ve taken our Botox training course, you already know about many ways to market your Botox training services and make yourself appealing to new clients. But we’re always discovering new ways to promote Botox services that we think are worth mentioning.

An article we found online recently pointed out a real estate agent in Southern California who raffled off hundreds of dollars in Botox services as a way to attract potential homebuyers to an open house event. Since the realtor was in the business of dealing with million-dollar Beverly Hills homes, she quite rightly thought that the kind of clients she wanted to attract would be interested in such a raffle.

And some smart Botox provider got a lot of publicity and perhaps a new client out of the deal too.

Marketing is always a game of trial and error, and this was a smart new marketing move for the clinic as well as for the real estate agent. In today’s world, creativity is the smartest way to get noticed.

Perhaps you could find a real estate agent or other professional who would gladly promote your business while promoting his. Could, say, a $200 Botox certificate from your clinic or practice generate a new client for you while helping another professional attract the right prospects.

Or you could offer group specials for wedding parties. Maybe you could post a monthly deal on your website or offer a newspaper buy-one-get-one treatment special. Your options are endless, and maybe your creativity is too.

Face it: Botox treatments are the top nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the world — and still growing. As the population continues to age, there will be more and more people who want to look better. And you can help if you can reach them.

Why not come up with 10 creative marketing ideas and give them all a try to see what sticks? Then try and try again.

How to Treat TMJ: With Botox

How to Treat TMJ: With Botox

tmj painTMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, is the name given to the two joints of either side of the face that hinge the jaw bone, or the mandible, to the skull. The TMJ allows movement of the jawbone side to side, limitedly, and up and down, which is how we chew our food, talk and yawn. This joint moves effortlessly, because it is lined with cartilage, and has a larger range of motility from the other joints in the body. The problem arises when the TMJ becomes a source of pain, because of causes like infections, injuries to the jaw bone or the joint, prolonged stretching or opening, as in insertion of an ET tube during surgeries, forceful yawning, a visit to the dentist, fractures or dislocations of the joint, as well as sometimes because of severe osteoarthritis.

TMJ problems can turn into a very big setback, as basic functions like talking and chewing become painful, restricted, and this soreness spreads along the neck, sometimes down to the shoulders as well. Treatment modalities for TMJ are varied, depending on the cause, but recently the use of BOTOX has come into focus. BOTOX has been established as a very effective method of reducing the pain associated with TMJ. Its relieving effect extends to pain that is caused by progressive strain in muscles around the TMJ, like pain caused by cervical dystonia, and TMJ related chronic headaches. The mechanism behind this is that BOTOX causes muscle paralysis, but not completely, only to a partial extent. When these muscles are paralysed, they relax from their state of contracture, and this relieves the direction of forces that act normally on the TMJ, that is, these muscles become relaxed, and cannot exert push or pull on the TMJ. This prevents unnecessary movement of the joint, which is responsible for the pain that patients feel.

The effect of BOTOX in treatment of TMJ is pain relief. While the pain is managed, better focus can be placed on isolating and treating the cause of the TMJ discomfort, without the patient’s daily life being affected as much. The advantage is that BOTOX can be given very quickly. The treatment does not require hospitalization, before or after the injections. Simply injections given by a good, licensed medical practitioner will suffice, to stall the effect of pain on the patient’s quality of life. And the onset of relief is very rapid. In a day or two, patients notice that the pain has begun to subside, as the muscles relax, and the effect is complete within the first week. Unlike systemic analgesics, there are no side effects, no withdrawal symptoms or addiction potential from chronic pain management medication, no drowsiness, etc. It’s a simple, localized effect that does not spread beyond the immediate site of the injection, provided that the patient does not massage the site of injection vigorously or rub it again and again. And it is relatively painless too. The number of injections needed differ from patient to patient, depending upon the severity and site of pain. And other than mild bruising in some patients, no noticeable effects occur to the skin, either. If you are suffering from TMJ related pain, then consider looking into BOTOX for treating TMJ.

How To Be A Cosmetic Nurse: Your Step-By-Step Guide

How To Be A Cosmetic Nurse: Your Step-By-Step Guide

nurse giving botoxIf you think that assisting in cosmetic procedures like giving Botox injections and helping patients look as good as they feel is a career path you’d like to explore, why not train to become a cosmetic nurse? Also called an aesthetics nurse or plastic surgeon’s nurse, a cosmetic nurse works hand in hand with doctors to help patients.

With your cosmetic nurse training and a Botox training course, you can make a real and direct difference how patients look and feel. And it all starts with the right training for people who have the right core skills and makeup.

Cosmetic Nurse Job Requirements

To be a cosmetic nurse, you’ll need to be able to stand for a long time, have good bedside manner so you can work with patients and have a strong tolerance for being around blood. Your job will involve taking care of patients before and during surgical procedures as well as after them and administering some kinds of injectable treatments yourself. It’s a good job with the likelihood of easily being able to find steady work.

Education can vary from a one-year certificate program to a Master’s degree in nursing, and you will have to be licensed in the state where you work.

You also need certain personal characteristics, including compassion, attention to detail, patience, strong interpersonal skills, public speaking skills and more. Plus, you’ll need to learn peripheral skills like how to use computer software — particularly healthcare systems software and Microsoft Office. You’ll need good stamina too, because shifts are often long.

Determining The Career Path For You

A number of different kinds of credentials can lead you to a career as a cosmetic nurse, and the licensing requirements and prospects for employment vary significantly based on the level of training and experience. Additional skills like Botox training can also contribute to employability.

Practical and vocational nurses have the least training, but these nurses don’t get the best positions that are open only to registered nurses and to nurse practitioners. A nurse practitioner can perform many procedures that are otherwise reserved for doctors. Those who want to become cosmetic nurses can choose their training level and how far they want to advance in their career. Some first become licensed vocational nurses before becoming registered nurses — or they may pursue advanced training from the beginning.

After determining how to proceed, here are the steps to success:

Step 1: Get the right education.

For LPNs, the educational program is usually about a year and includes both work in a classroom and in supervised care of patients. Classroom education usually includes pharmacology, physiology, pediatrics and nutrition, among other things. Supervised practice is usually done at a hospital.

For RNs, a Bachelor’s degree in nursing is usually required, and this can take four years or more to achieve. Some RNs may have only an associate’s degree, but there are fewer employment choices for nurses with this type of degree. Those with an associate’s degree often get a Bachelor’s degree later.

To become a nurse practitioner, a Master of Science in Nursing or similar degree is required. Some states have additional requirements.

Step 2: Get a nursing license.

Licensing requirements for nurses vary from state to state and can depend on what type of license is desired. An LPN must pass the National Council Licensure Examination-Practical Nurse or NCLEX-PN exam as well as any specific licensing requirements of the state. An RN must pass the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse or NCLEX-RN exam and additional state requirements and must be a graduate of a nursing program approved by the licensing agency. Nurse practitioners must have a Master’s degree and an RN license.

Step 3: Specialize in cosmetic nursing.

It may be possible to get experience as a cosmetic nurse while still in school. Specific education may be offered in areas relevant to cosmetic nursing, including fat grafting, chemical peels and liposuction. Botox training may or may not be available while in school. Often, the first step in employment is to seek an entry-level job nursing at a place where cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery is performed. In some cases, LPNs can get these sorts of jobs out of school, while other employers require experience even for entry-level jobs in their practices. Employers will look for specific skills in assessing skin aging, doing Botox injections, handling clinical application and caring for patients after surgery.

Step 4: Consider certification.

It isn’t necessary for cosmetic nurses to have an additional, separate certification to work in cosmetic nursing or plastic surgical nursing. Certification can help with career advancement as well as professional development, however. No single organization provides this type of certification, but cosmetic nurses can choose to be certified by the Plastic Surgical Nursing Certification Board, the Center for Nursing Education and Testing and other groups. It’s also possible to become a member of the American Association of Medical Esthetic Professionals for greater respect within the industry. Our Botox Training Course also includes certification from Dr. Katz, who is the inventor named on all the patent applications for Botulinum Toxins (Botox).

Step 5: Never stop learning.

Cosmetic nurses are required to have continuing education to get license renewals and to maintain other voluntary certifications. Things like online Botox training courses and instruction in how to inject dermal fillers are especially useful. There are a variety of other seminars and courses available as well, and a cosmetic nurse will take many such courses over the course of a career.

Following this process, a person without good job prospects can prosper as a cosmetic nurse for years or even decades to come.

Baby Boomer Men Can Be Your Best Botox Customers If You Keep Their Secrets

Baby Boomer Men Can Be Your Best Botox Customers If You Keep Their Secrets

man getting botoxImagine this scenario: a wife comes into a dermatologist to find that her husband is already there. They had both come in for Botox injections, but the man had never told his wife he was getting cosmetic treatments on his aging face. The man pretends that the doctor is an old college friend and never lets on to his wife that he’s come to the office for the same reason she has.

Baby boomer men, as turns out, aren’t afraid of Botox. But they may be afraid of someone finding out.

Adding discreet, quick and simple Botox treatments to your practice’s array of service offerings can boost your income and widen your client base — but be prepared for a few awkward situations like the one above. Men like to be stealthy.

According to some research, cosmetic procedures on men rose more than 20 percent in the last several years. Shouldn’t you be getting in on this growing trend in the industry? It all starts with attending an online Botox training seminar to get the skills in injectables that you need.

It May Start In The Workplace

The rationale that underlies this desire by many middle-aged men to look younger is the harsh reality of the modern workplace. While the unemployment rate for men over age 55 is low, these men can take longer to find jobs if they lose the ones they have. They can remain unemployed nearly a year, on average, while younger men can often find work in a little over half that time. So they have to do something to appear more vibrant and alive — and younger.

While there are age discrimination laws, it’s a fact that men who look old — or at least look like they’re showing the signs of aging — are often victims of workplace discrimination. Age matters when looking for a job, and aging men know that.

The facts about aging and the workplace are causing more men than ever before to visit plastic surgeons and other medical professionals who offer Botox and related procedures that are quick and have little downtime. Of course, women visit Botox doctors for the same workplace-related reasons in many cases.

While the number of men willing to undergo cosmetic procedures can fluctuate with the fluctuating economy, there are still plenty of men who find themselves needing to improve their appearance. Plus, there are many men who spend a lot of time in the sun playing golf or going to the beach without sunscreen. And they need Botox as well as microdermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing and other procedures than can refresh their appearance, eliminate existing wrinkles and delay the onset of more age-related issues.

When men approach job interviews with a youthful face as well as a youthful attitude, it can go a long way toward helping them get the job they want.

Out-Of-Pocket Payments

Cosmetic procedures can be particularly appealing to doctors, dentists and related medical professionals who want to enhance the bottom line of their practices because these treatments aren’t covered by health insurance, in most cases. That means men will be forced to pay out of pocket at the time of visit, and paperwork is minimal.

When paperwork is kept down and the administrative costs are low for medical professionals who do the treatments, and that means additional profit.

A single unit of Botox costs about $15, and treating a small area can cost a patient $200 or more. Dermal fillers sell for $500 to $600 a vial, and each treatment requires at least two shots. And since wrinkles resurface after a few months, patients must come back for additional treatment. Botox lasts about three months or perhaps longer after multiple treatments, and some fillers must be redone after several months to a year.

Profit margins for administering doctors are very high, so only a few patients a week can significantly boost the bottom line. And since start-up costs are low, there’s little on the line.

Many men consider these services investments that allow them to hang onto their high-paying jobs and benefits.

Men also realize that shopping for Botox and other cosmetic procedures isn’t like shopping for a new car. There’s more than price that comes into the equation. Men understand, in many cases, that cosmetic procedures are works of skill by trained professionals, not commodities that can be handled by anyone.

Experts advise those who want Botox treatment — whether men or women — to go to trained professionals for their treatments. That’s why it makes sense to get your Botox training from a recognized innovator and leader in his field, Dr. Howard Katz. When you choose Dentox training from Dr. Katz, you’re choosing to get training from a source whose name on your resume increases your value and viability in the workplace.

After all, medical professionals sometimes face the same kinds of age-related workplace discrimination as other workers, and having good credentials can do as much to improve your job chances as having a face that doesn’t betray your advancing years.

If you want to help others in the workplace while helping yourself as well, it’s time to make your next continuing education seminar a Botox training course from Dentox. Like so many doctors, nurses, dentists and others who have gone before you, you won’t regret learning from a proven leader whose years of experience are available to you whenever you’re ready to benefit from them.
