Once you have established this you need to look at where you clinic is going to be based and at what price. Remember to do some research on who else is offering the same treatments, the service and the price that they offer. Remember you have invested in your training, do not fall into the trap of pricing yourself too cheaply. You then need to think about how your going to attract patients.

I am trained in injectables should I train in Skin treatments as well?
Skin and injectable treatments go hand in hand. Both are treatments to make someone look and feel better and help to rejuvenate their skin. As well as skin treatments it is also worth stocking retail products in the skin treatments your offer, this can increase your clinics revenue.
How much should I charge for treatments?
This will depend on your location and the treatments you are offering. Benchmark yourself against competitors in your area. Also think about your location, for example a London clinic will charge more than a clinic in the North. Also remember not to price yourself too cheap to get customers, you have invested in the training and the costs to set up. If you position yourself too cheap you will attract the wrong clientele.
