Succeeding in Retail

Considering adding retail products to your practice? Here’s what you need to know about product selection, marketing and managing sales.

Selling skincare and other products that appeal to your patient base can be an additional revenue stream for your medspa or practice. But for more money to flow in, you’ll need to sell quality merchandise, display products attractively and properly promote them.

Michael Lin, MD, offers products that complement the procedures he provides and the medical conditions that he treats at his practice, Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, which has four locations throughout Southern California.

Cutting Edge Ingredients

A closer look at some of the most buzzworthy new ingredients in antiaging skin care.
The science behind antiaging ingredients

New products that promise to “unlock a more youthful appearance,” “turn back the hands of time,” and “reset the aging process” bombard consumers and skincare professionals on a seemingly daily basis. While we know that topical skincare is vital to skin health, the question is, do these new ingredients deserve a space on your retail shelves?

Adding e-Commerce

Selling skincare products through your practice website can be a good source of revenue and provide a more convenient option for patients.
e-Commerce Considerations

THE INTERNET HAS changed the way people shop. Today, consumers go online to purchase everything from clothes to cars and even movie tickets. If your practice retails skincare products, adding online ordering to your website can expand your audience, build sales, and improve the patient experience by providing a convenient way to browse and purchase products. The key is to determine what you hope to accomplish with your e-commerce site and incorporate the right features to help you reach those goals.

Go Your Own Way

Launching a private label line.
The pros and cons of private label skin care.

Retail skincare products offer several benefits to aesthetic patients and practices. They help patients protect the health of their skin and maintain the results of in-office treatments, while providing an additional source of ongoing revenue for the practice. The challenge is that with so many online and brick-and-mortar retailers offering high-end skin care, patients naturally shop for the best deals on their favorite brands.
