Over 14 million people worldwide have non-surgical cosmetic procedures every year, with botox and hyaluronic acid injections being the most popular. Your spa could offer these procedures and many others like them through partnerships with other providers or by hiring the right people.
10 Cosmetic Procedures Spas Could Offer Via Partnerships
There are many things you can do to bring in new customers to your business, such as offering sliding scale pricing. However, increasing your service offerings will inevitably draw a crowd.
1. Dental Cosmetic Procedures
Spas can partner with dentists who offer cosmetic dentistry, such as crowns, braces, bridges, teeth whitening, and gum reshaping. Spa owners can instruct their clients that following simple dental hygiene tips will make them a likely candidate for several cosmetic dentistry procedures.
2. Laser Resurfacing Procedures
Laser resurfacing procedures use light to heat, damage, and destroy the upper layers of the skin. This can help shed old skin and grow new layers. This technique improves the appearance of or removes wrinkles, shallow scars (for surgery or acne), brown spots, or small spider veins.
3. Coolsculpting Procedures
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that targets fat cells underneath the skin using cooling technology. The devices have a built-in safety measure, so patients won’t get burned or hurt. As a non-surgical fat reduction procedure, patients have virtually zero recovery time.
4. Chemical Peel Procedures
Spas can offer light, medium, or deep chemical peels in their establishment as long as they have a certified esthetician on staff. Chemical peels are similar to laser resurfacing procedures, except you’d use chemicals (i.e., trichloroacetic acid) to remove top layers of the skin.
5. Dermabrasion Procedures
Dermabrasion procedures use a rapidly rotating device that removes the outer layers of skin, reducing the appearance of surgery scars, wrinkles, age spots, and acne. Since the doctor has to administer an anesthetic before the procedure, it’s safer to partner with a dermabrasion clinic.
6. Botox Toxin Procedures
Multiple cosmetic clinics offer botox injections to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The procedure lasts around 3 to 4 months. While clients usually get this procedure when they’re older, it’s more effective if the customer uses botox before deep wrinkles set in.
7. Laser Hair Removal Procedures
Some spas already offer laser hair removal, but if yours doesn’t, consider adding it to your list of procedures. Laser hair removal permanently removes unwanted hair, like facial, leg, or armpit hair, by using heat to destroy hair follicles. The client will come back for multiple treatments.
8. Spider Vein Removal Procedures
Spider veins are thin, red, or blue lines or a weblike network or blood vessels that show up on the surface of the skin. They can appear anywhere on your body but often form on the legs or face. A spider vein removal procedure will close the vein using a solution or remove them.
9. Tattoo Removal Procedures
Laser tattoo removal procedures remove tattoo ink from the skin. This procedure is helpful for people who regret having their tattoos or have a visible tattoo that prevents them from getting a job. Similar to laser hair removal procedures, the client will have to get multiple treatments.
10. Invasive Cosmetic Surgeries
If you know a few cosmetic surgeons, you can refer them to a clinic in town that performs invasive procedures, such as face-lifts, eyelid surgery, and nose reshaping. Depending on your relationship, you could request an affiliate kickback when the surgeon books an appointment.
Some spas can rent out office space in their business for the surgeon to perform consultations. That means the surgeon won’t perform surgeries or any procedure in your establishment.
