Interest in cosmetic procedures among men offers potential for practice growth, but bringing them in the door takes time.By Stephanie KramerAmerican men are more aware of their appearance than ever—and also more open to the idea of cosmetic enhancement.

LewisThe increasing availability and improved efficacy of non- and minimally invasive aesthetic treatments has contributed profoundly to the growth of the medical cosmetic industry.

Help your practice stand out by recognizing what makes it unique in the marketplace.By Karen Zupko“The doctor is board certified.” This is the answer I hear most often when I ask a new practice manager what makes her practice unique or special. While being board certified is an important credential that potential patients are wise to verify and value, there are thousands of board certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists nationwide, so it’s not that “unique.” In fact, in some urban areas it’s common to have 12 or more board certified aesthetic specialists in a three-block radius—and five...

The reality is, neither approach is going to get you where you want to go in terms of long-term growth and success. It takes strategic planning to...
