Advanced Skin Technology’s clinic case study for the successful integration of dermal therapy treatment for passive income.

Patients can benefit hugely from the integration of a non-surgical rejuvenation program offered by qualified clinicians performing these dermal therapy treatments under the supervision and support of a Medical Practitioner.

into its clinic, it needs to follow the above mantra. Let’s have a look at its keywords more closely:

Qualified Clinicians

Dr Taylor is passionate about qualifications and education. His non-surgical team consists only of Dermal Clinicians (hold a Bachelor of Health Science – Dermal Therapies) providing the dermal therapy treatments and Registered Nurses providing wrinkle-reducing injectables to ensure his patients are provided with the most professional service and advice.

Supervision and support of medical practitioner

Having the support of a Medical Practitioner in the clinic ensures the risks to patients are reduced whilst ensuring a safe and cost effective result for the patient.

The clinic not only receives the extra income but also is rewarded with a loyal patient who will remain in the clinic for years to come.
