It’s less than a week to Christmas and just over a week or so until New Years. Many patients are making resolutions and planning out budgets, vacations and work goals for next year. Along with those plans, how about making some suggestions to your current and potential patients on how to make their cosmetic choices in 2013? By focusing on informative blogs that coordinate with your office specials, you can help your patients make intelligent decisions while keeping your practice on the right track.
- Skincare – Start off right with the basics in skincare and have patients make regular appointments with your aesthetician. Bundle products, injectables and laser/light therapy with your procedures to help patients look their best post-surgery and all year round. Some suggested content to share:
