Physicians and healthcare practitioners from a wide range of specialties are turning to laser tattoo removal to revitalize their practices. As a high-demand and simple-to-perform cosmetic laser procedure, laser tattoo removal enables physicians to capitalize on a cash-pay treatment, improve their bottom line, and add excitement to their practice. Astanza has a history of providing quality service and technology to healthcare practitioners seeking to diversify their offerings.
Laser tattoo removal is an attractive add-on procedure that is exciting to learn – plus it provides a large opportunity for profit. The laser procedure itself is straightforward, but there is extensive knowledge necessary to properly assess tattoos, determine treatment settings, and achieve optimal results. Many physicians enjoy the challenge of expanding their skill set during Astanza’s 2-day comprehensive product training course.
In addition, laser tattoo removal allows you to fulfill one of the core reasons you became a healthcare practitioner – to change and improve the lives of patients. For many, what was a college mistake or youthful indiscretion has become a daily burden. Clothing options are limited, body image is negatively affected, and opportunities for promotions or relationship success can be hindered.
Laser tattoo removal allows you to help patients regain control over their appearance. Patients treated with quality systems, such as the Astanza Duality or Astanza Trinity, report remarkably high satisfaction. The impressive, visible progress made with each laser tattoo removal treatment is very fulfilling for patients and practitioners alike.
Enter the Next Big Cosmetic Industry
Now is the ideal time to enter the laser tattoo removal industry and expand your healthcare practitioner skills into aesthetics. For the last decade, nothing has been hotter than tattoos. For the next decade, no cosmetic field will be more exciting than laser tattoo removal.
Astanza has a history of providing quality training, technology, and support to entrepreneurs seeking to profit from laser tattoo removal.
Reasons to Enter the Tattoo Removal Industry:
Easy to Perform
Simple Business Model
The 20,000 tattoo shops* in the U.S. create new potential tattoo removal patients every day, adding to the existing 45 million tattooed Americans. Polls have shown that up to 50% of tattooed people have tattoo regret, and laser tattoo removal is the only non-invasive safe and effective solution to treating unwanted ink.
Furthermore, many people who love their tattoos usually have one or two tattoos they end up regretting or wish to modify. Lasers can be used to not only completely remove unwanted in, but also to lighten or fade existing tattoos to create room for a cover-up tattoo. More physicians and healthcare practitioners are using laser technology to modify or lighten tattoos and then partner with local tattoo artists to deliver cover-up artwork after a laser treatment.
The market for laser tattoo removal is huge and continues to grow annually. Tattoos have become a part of mainstream culture and have expanded into the affluent populations that regularly consume aesthetic procedures. Patients are often highly motivated and willing to pay a premium for quality treatments – especially by a medical professional.
The average tattoo removal appointment costs $200 and takes only 15 minutes from start to finish. The procedure requires minimal consumable costs, so it is pure profit for practitioners. Plus, because most tattoos require 5 to 10 treatments for complete removal, patients return for follow-ups and there is less effort required to fill the appointment book.
Insurance claims are time-consuming and irritating. Laser tattoo removal is a strictly cosmetic procedure, so it is strictly cash-pay.
The cost of each individual treatment is manageable enough that patients almost never have difficulty paying. Although insurance doesn’t cover laser tattoo removal, patients are always more than happy to pay to remove a tattoo that interferes with their current lifestyle.
Use Your Existing Space
Laser tattoo removal can add significant profit to your existing healthcare practice without requiring many additional expenses. The space needed for a successful tattoo removal practice is minimal: a waiting room, treatment room, and office. Most medical practices already have all three, and existing treatment rooms are typically well-equipped for laser procedures.
All of Astanza’s laser products are compact enough to be used conveniently in a multi-purpose space and do not need a dedicated room.
Take Advantage of Your Title
Some states (including NJ, CA, OH, FL) require laser tattoo removal to be performed by a licensed medical professional of a certain qualification. In these areas, doctors, physician assistants, healthcare practitioners, and nurse practitioners have a unique advantage. There is usually less competition, so laser tattoo removal practitioners can name their price and achieve impressive profits.
Even in other states where restrictions are laxer, many patients prefer to receive treatment from a medical practice. Traditionally, medical professionals are able to charge more for the procedure than can other practitioners.
Best of all, most states allow you to delegate the procedure to members of your staff – freeing up your time, while still bringing revenue in the door.
Astanza provides many resources to help your practice transition into providing tattoo removal services. From comprehensive training with New Look Laser College to our extensive Customer Marketing Partnership, Astanza does more for our customers than any other laser manufacturer.
