Rules to help new clinicians setup and work towards running a successful, ethical and professional aesthetic practice.

Abstract What makes an effective, ethical and professional practice? From a medical perspective, it is one which conveys proficient and safe treatments, and from a business perspective, one with a sound reputation and consistent, predictable income. i

There is right now no universally agreed upon definition of Aesthetic Medicine. The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery has characterized corrective surgery as "a subspecialty of medicine and surgery that exceptionally limits itself to the upgrading of visual appearance through surgical and non surgical techniques. It is particularly concerned with keeping up one’s physical appearance, enhancing it, progressing toward an artistic level. Aesthetic work is becoming "need felt" and consequently, this paper means to guide clinicians how to setup a professional ethical and successful aesthetic practice.

Introduction Aesthetic Medicine is a rapidly developing and advancing branch of medicine.

concerned with cosmesis and appearance, it naturally ought to comprise clinical dermatology, 3

dermatosurgery and corrective dermatology.

Ethical practice is quality medicine, and

clinicians ought to abstain from doing more procedures than necessary. First and foremost comes the patients' concerns. Next comes individualising evidence based treatments to address these concerns, while proposing a treatment programme in the patient’s best interest, building a long term relationship in the process. To date, Google research seek yields no published papers on this subject. Subsequently making this a fascinating and valuable subject to look into. My Vision Being an Aesthetic Doctor, I seek to beautify people, to guide men and women achieve awesome dreams. Helping them to look and feel their very best. My vision is to make Asia more beautiful, one face at a time. And by beautiful, I do not mean just looking your very best. My wish is for you to feel your very best. My Mission To serve the needs of men and women who are seek aesthetic rejuvenation, providing them with useful educational information, helping them look and feel their very best, fulfilling their highest, truest, purest expression of themselves.ii

In society today, I find that 3 groups of people are at risk. With the rise of social media, and the use of gadgets to communicate, the generation today is faced with a new set of challenges.

Social media portrays people in the most positive light. Seeing your peers posting beautiful pictures and participating in awesome events creates a notion that ‘the grass is ALWAYS 4


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

greener on the other side’. This creates the false impression that other people’s lives are so cushy and impressive, while you yourself may be struggling in many ways.

The 3 at risk groups

The youth: Youths today are under massive pressure to excel in school. They have less face time with parents, and miss the nurturing and guidance that a fully attentive parent can give. Schools today place too much emphasis on academic performance and rote learning and very little on problem solving life-skills. Parents in our current generation tend to be too busy with work, leaving the care of their kids to the school or grandparents. Where kids feel that they can only get their parent’s approval if they get good grades, become a school prefect, break into the national team etc… This creates feelings of poor self esteem in youth, and this follows them through life. They have difficulty coping with stress, and find it tough to handle failures. A study shows that a kid aged between 3 to 6 years of age is at a key developmental stage. Lifeskills learnt during this time sets the foundation for healthy personal development in later years. Hence, please do not neglect your children.

The working adult: Adults are very social media savvy these days. And as mentioned earlier, social media creates the false perception that your neighbour is having ‘the time of their lives’, while we ourselves are struggling with work, bosses, career progression, insecurities etc… Inevitably, there will be comparison with peers and adults often find themselves caught up in the rat race. This creates feelings of anxiety, low self esteem and depression.

The elderly: Elderly face the major challenge of loneliness, either because they are single, or their children are too busy with their work or family. Being physically handicapped, many need help for daily activities, and this inevitably creates a dent on their emotional well-being. They need connection,

The Pew Research Internet Project has been gathering web-based social networking insights and socioeconomics for years, providing new data all the time. Their most recent statistic study—a survey of 1,801 adults from August and September 2013—demonstrates the client bases for five noteworthy social media platforms.

It appears that most organizations falsely believe online networking is only an approach to post information for their supporters. Notwithstanding, it is far beyond that and this article clarifies why. It demonstrates that it is critical to tune in, react and draw in your clients by utilizing online networking. It is a channel for communicating with clients and accepting input. viii

Insights from experts ix ACT remains for Attract, Convert, Transform; it fundamentally diagrams the move from a buyer to a client. Body, which remains for Brand, Outcome, and Differentiator, is the thing that you use with a specific end goal to draw in buyers. Author Shama Kabani states that online networking promotion is a phenomenal approach to draw in buyers. Regardless of the possibility that they don't turn into a client, they get to be distinctly mindful of your services. In addition, they may share this awareness of services with their social circle, which could prompt to other individuals getting to be your clients. As it were, drawing in buyers can be similarly as critical as acquiring clients. In any case, before you begin utilizing online 25


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

networking, you should must have a decent website. She recommends that you rotate the majority of your online networking endeavors around your site and to incorporate these endeavors. What's more, with regards to utilizing online networking, she suggests the accompanying:

1)

Strategize first

2)

Be human

3)

Consistent work on website improvement (SEO)

Brands ought to tap on new media's potential outcomes to convey on four rudiments: offering and sharing a succint client experience; building trust by conveying on it; consistently enhancing the experience; and innovating .

As they adopt different measures with web-based social networking, organizations ought to pick up client feedback as opposed to merely increasing revenue, tap on the media's speed and reach while ensuring the brand's name, and complying with the unwritten principles of client engagement on the web.

x

Hence, the strong significance of online networking is a fact. No doubt, the appropriation of web-based social networking for B2B ( business to business) associations has been 26


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

extensively slower contrasted with their B2C ( business to consumer) peers, their advantages for markets is growing.

Applying this to an aesthetic clinic, our immediate business counterparts would be the machine distributors, product (skincare, filler, threadlift) distributors etc. A social media engagement would be the joint promotion of the clinic services online via the distributors’ online marketing campaign, and the roping in of influencers to provide positive testimonies of the treatments, thereby aiding both the clinic and the distributor. In synopsis, in spite of the growing positive acknowledgement of online networking in B2B, themes encompassing web-based social networking, engagement techniques require more effort by market experts. xiv xv Ventures to lift online network marketing for aesthetic practices xvi 1. Pick platforms that bolster your image branding.

While Google+ is still developing, it can be a useful platform to connect with men, as

66% of the system's clients are men, the vast majority of whom are technical professionals. •

Pinterest is an amazing interpersonal organization to connect with ladies, particularly

for brands offering retail services, so for aesthetic clinics, this would include skincare products. •

LinkedIn is a suitable for advancing business-related work and interfacing with other

corporate influencers.

2. Provide important and shareable information. There’s a bigger impact from writing beneficial educational articles that readers will like to share, rather than pure promotional pieces. •

Figure out which subject matter would attract greater interest on your social platforms.

Use images. Articles with pictures get 94 percent more perspectives. Twitter content

with pictures gets about twice the same number of views as content posts. One of the most straightforward approaches to build brand specific content for web-based networking media profiles is to identify successful posts from competitors and further improve on it.

CHAPTER 3: OPERATIONS ‘Our business is about technology yes. But it’s also about operations and customer relationships. ‘ Michael Dell Hence, to me, the key to good operations lies in building strong connections. You have to be connected to your staff and your clients. And you have to stay connected to them, growing a long term relationship based on mutual trust and support.

OPERATION: Abiding legal, ethical and training guidelines Medicine is about helping people. So the bottomline is to bring benefit to your patients. With this patient centred focused, everything else will fall into place.

Abiding by legal, ethical and training guidelines 1.

Professional registration and practice

2.

Clinical negligence and reimbursement protection

3.

Consent taking

4.

Patient confidentiality

5.

Reporting of adverse events

3.1 LEGAL GUIDELINES Professional registration It is required for all healthcare practitioners to be registered with their regulatory body. For doctors, this would be the Medical Council. Clinicians must be prepared to clarify their activities and take ownership of their work. Courts give careful consideration to Medical Council and related regulatory bodies to identify the requirements set for a doctor. Clinical Negligence and indemnity protection It is vital to maintain the right reimbursement protection to guarantee patients get the appropriate remuneration. Perpetually in instances of clinical negligence, the litigant will owe an obligation of care to the patient.

3.3 Consent taking Standard of care, when not adhered to, moves on to potential litigation and medical negligence. Hence our behaviour must be in accordance with a well-regarded medical body and be both intelligent and sensible. consent

xxxvi xxxvii

Prior to a treatment being carried out, a valid

is foremost. Valid consent addresses competence, voluntariness and ample

accessible information in effecting an educated decision. .xxxviii xxxix xl Botox is prescription only, and is licensed for glabellar rhytides only. Other areas are offlabel and clinicians have a responsibility to obtain consent for this.

48


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

Privacy Clinicians have an obligation to safeguard patient privacy. Maintain a high caliber of record keeping, kept privately and safely as per NHS models and the Data Protection Act 1998 xli

Clinical Application: Suppose a patient consults the practitioner together with her friend, and fills up a medical history form and photos taken. Now this patient’s friend does not know about her medical history. The practitioner cannot and should not at any time, mention this medical history in the presence of her friend. Posting before and after images of patients on social media without prior consent is another aspect of breach of confidentiality.

Announcing of adverse medication responses Clinicians are responsible to keep track the safe use of medication and to report adverse drug events to the Health Science Authority 3.2 ETHICAL COMMITMENTS: 1.

Relationship with patients

2.

Relationship with associates

3.

Probity

4.

Beneficence, non malevolence, autonomy and justice.

Clinical application: Clinically, lack of professionalism include: faking qualifications; misleading claims about quality of services; preying on patients’ fears to entice them to use your private services, and providing inaccurate information about procedure fees. For example, advertising aesthetic services with terms like permanent face-lifting, offering financial incentives and using laudatory terms like ‘UK’s number 1 doctor, 100% money back guarantee.’ Standard of beneficience, non malignance, self-governance and equity: GMC Doctors have a primary role to do no harm, act to the benefit of patients, and be responsible for their actions.

3.3 TRAINING COMMITMENTS xlii xliii xliv

Preparation ought to be in agreement to local regulatory bodies, and in the UK, it is the GMC for doctors.This involves keeping our insight and skillsets all through our working life. In addition, we should complete life skills training in compliance with the UK resuscitation Council guidelines and ensure patients have access to help at all times. This empowers us to manage crises adequately. xlv

All practitioners must keep up to date with continuing professional development (CPD), and not undertake procedures outside their competence. Treatments must be best practice and evidence based.xlvi Reviews Cosmetic practitioners should participate in audits to identify areas for professional development and product auditing of toxins, dermal fillers as part of quality assessment. One of the common challenges for clinicians is that being in the field of aesthetics, we end up not keeping abreast with general medical conferences, as there’s just too many Aesthetic Dermatology and Antiageing conferences to attend.

Clinical application: Follow- up visits with clinical assessment must be arranged, and good aftercare provided as part of the treatment course. Modifications to the treatment may be needed and this should be addressed at the first consultation. The practitioner must handle medical emergencies appropriately with the right training and support.

To quote an example, traditionally spas have a large client pool. Most of these patients are on maintainence treatments with non medical grade machines. Should they require more advanced treatments, for example threadlifting, botox, fillers, lasers, they would need to consult a doctor. This is where doctors can work with spas to offer value added services to their clients. When it comes to local ventures, a geographical distance would be helpful to ensure a wider reach. Some level of political separation can be useful. This is with reference to global joint ventures. On a global scale, venturing into developing countries offers a wealth of opportunities. Competition is smaller, and there is plenty of room for growth. Learning about how the capital markets respond upon the declaration of JVs is financially informative. It gives a signal to how speculators see individual focused measures in the light of past events, thereby serving as a benchmark for decision making. Most importantly, the decision ought to bring to the greatest benefit to stockholders when building up a joint venture. There are 3 critical factors when selecting a JV partnership. Ideally, find one with medium geographical separation, high absorptive potential and high knowledge separation will probably get a positive market response while picking an accomplice where medium administrative separation is not recommended. xlviii Outsourcing Outsourcing needs to be considered. This can be in the form having a factory in Indonesia to manufacture your practices’ skincare products, having an India based Google Search Engine Optimisation agency to handle your digital marketing etc. Similarly imperative, the 57

outsourced operation must not later be regulated by a manager who has a personal stake in the way things were done before. Further outsourcing will be a characteristic outgrowth of a clinic as it keeps on globalizing and moves to advanced services. Carefully overseeing learning, enhancing, and outsourcing will be among the best and most satisfying.xlix Dynamic capabilities Dynamic capacities are a list of specific and identifiable procedures, for example, product enhancement, decision making and partnerships. They are more prominently named 'best practices'. In medium dynamic markets, these best practices are definite, scientific, stable procedures with fixed results. Conversely, in high-speed markets, they are straightforward, profoundly experiential and delicate procedures with unpredictable results. From a growth point of view, in medium dynamic markets, the focus is on variety. In high-speed markets, it is on selection. l

CHAPTER 5 CONCLUSION: li "Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts." -- Winston S. Churchill So press on and keep moving forward. Dr Daniel Chang

The following are a summary of key concepts for a successful, ethical and professional aesthetic practice. Location: One of the most imperative components of a succesful practice is the area. You ought to examine the geographic area that you might want to setup in to understand the socioeconomics of your patients. Be familiar with all hospitals, dermatology centres and aesthetic clinics around. Focus: The bottomline is, patients come first. Clinicans must follow the principle of do no harm and seek to do treatments that bring benefit to patients. We must never fall into the trap of treating patients as mere numbers in a database. Maintain a focal point of expertise in all disciplines. One ought to have a coordinated centre for clinical dermatology, dermatosurgery and aesthetic dermatology. For instance if a patient with acne goes to the center, you would be required to mange the acne,and plan to treat the acne scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation Stay updated with the latest advances. Keep in mind, aesthetic treatment is about appearance as well as about patients' well-being. Hence, every case must be treated with expert skill and care. 59


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

Practice and staff: Physicians ought to see their practices from the viewpoint of the patient. Survey your facility, and immerse in the role of a patient. Time is precious, so ensure patients are not waiting excessively. Front line staff ought to be presentable, and be experts at telephone courtesy, appointment bookings and service. Assign adequate time for the treatments booked. For example, doing a dermal filler injection will require pre treatment cleansing and numbing. This should be taken into account. Patients: Be a good listener. Have a non-judgmental state of mind and watch out for any indications of body dysmorphic condition. It is better to refrain from performing treatment at the initial consultation with the patient, as this would give them time to make an informed choice. Discuss the patient’s concerns adequately. This will build trust in the patient. And followup your patients regularly. Methods: Before any treatment, ensure you have shared sufficiently to the patient the treatment details, available options , side effects, potential complications, result expected, length of treatment and cost involved. When starting out, it is always better to master basic skills before moving onto more complicated ones. Likewise with lasers, it is frequently logical to lease or share a laser on a month to month basis with a group of doctors so that intial capital outlay is reduced and one can take time to grow a pool of patients before buying a laser machine. Photography: Good photos help document the treatment progress, which allows an objective assessment of outcome.

60


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

Prerequisites: a. DSLR/SLR cameras (Digital Single Lens Reflex and Single Lens Reflex) with tripod, photographic frames and software, and shoot with high resolution. c. Standard positioning: Photograph the patient in a uniform way. d. Black background is ideal to absorb incoming light. e. Lighting: Use two primary lights at 45° edge to the subject on a parallel plane to the frontal plane of the subject.

Professional training: This would include a combination of hands on workshops, conferences and training courses. Doing an attachment with an aesthetic dermatologist will help you gain valuable experience.

Evaluation trials: Always test new machines over a period of time to evaluate its safety and efficacy before offering to patients. Equipment: Key is to identify the main vendors. Then shortlist based on efficacy and cost of machine and spare parts, training provided, reliability of the company, servicing, warranty and extended service contracts. Patient records: It is basic to keep up a database of patient records. An online cloud system can help with appointment bookings, SMS reminders and remote access of patient records.

61


DR DANIEL CHANG AESTHETIC PHYSICAN | REGIONAL TRAINER | KICKASS ATHLETE DRDANIELCHANG.COM 2017 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUILDING YOUR KICKASS AESTHETIC CLINIC BRAND

Marketing: This need not be costly. Social media and mobile phone promotions are the trend now. An educational and enlightening website is vital, while ensuring all information is honest and updated. All these has to be in accordance with publicity and ethical guidelines. Educate: Tell your audience what's new in aesthetic dermatology and your practice. Encourage them to sign up on your blog, online newsletter in order to touchbase with them and keep them updated regularly. Challenges: Have a balanced approach. It is safer to undertreat the patient. Additionally, ensure the patients are realistic. When complications happen, treat the patient thoughtfully and delicately, instead of overlooking the patient. Offer to see the patient more often, to reassure and to offer complimentary treatments as needed. Insurance: It is vital to have fire, theft insurance to cover for the premise. Indemnity insurance protects the doctor against financial claims due to clinical negligence or errors of judgement. Having open honest communication ensures trust is built reduces litigation risk. Aesthetic dermatology is turning into a key branch of medicine. To meet and exceed expectations, it is important to use machines approved by the relevant regulatory bodies, validated for their safety and efficacy. Doctors must abide by the rule of Hippocrates "Primum non nocere" – First do no harm. Keep treatments progressive.
