Nowadays, products are an important part of the revenue generated by clinics and medispas as well as an essential “aftercare” service provided to clients. So how can you offer your clients the best care for their skin and make a nice extra profit?
It is universally established and accepted that lifestyle – and particularly diet – has a significant influence on skin and health in general. Good nutrition is reflected in good skin! In fact, skincare professionals are increasingly focusing on taking a holistic approach to skin health and rejuvenation to optimise client results. This approach has come to include an oral supplement designed to target the skin and help reduce the effects of skin-ageing, a nutraceutical.
One of the fastest growing categories in the Beauty market today, is nutricosmetics. A recent report in Natural Products Insider shed light on this global trend; ‘Consumer awareness of the relationship between nutrition, good health and beauty is growing. It is understood what is consumed and metabolized has an impact on outer appearance.’ This has led to a mounting interest in supporting skin function from within, using nutraceuticals/nutricosmetics. This fast-growing sector has already gone mainstream in Asia and Europe, and is now maturing to a viable category in North America as more brands become integrated within the health, beauty, and wellness market. There is stronger clinical evidence available to support the pathophysiology of skin aging and the positive impact that nutrition/targeted nutrients may have on delaying skin aging and improving overall skin health.
Skinade – better skin from within® was launched in the UK in 2013 and moved the inside-out approach from something designed to make money by marketing standard nutritional supplementation into something that actually works. A drink, Skinade is designed to create a physiological response in our bodies, replacing lost collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid by helping produce these naturally. Skinade has pioneered “feedback mechanism” skincare, improving the end-user’s skin at a level never measured before.
Putting your clinic in the position to provide the best possible products and results for your client’s skin is now more important than ever, and demand is creating a nutraceutical market that will be worth $7 billion by 2020.
Bottled Science, the team behind Skinade, has spent over two years developing and perfecting a patent-pending formulation of active ingredients that work synergistically to produce a highly effective and result-driven product aimed specifically at the skin. The formulation is packed with the highest-quality low-molecular weight collagen peptides from marine sources and essential nutricosmetics. Every aspect of the product has been designed to support normal skin function. Skinade is manufactured in London, UK.
The addition of nutraceuticals into aesthetic clinic offerings makes sense holistically and financially. Aesthetic practitioners already offer patients a vast array of topical, injectable, and laser treatments at their clinics, which address patients’ concerns from the outside. When so many factors that contribute to skin health and aging are influenced by what is happening inside the body, it seems only natural to combine these treatments with nutraceutical products to maximise skin health improvement.
With the right formulation, nutraceuticals have been shown to induce visible skin improvements; but to achieve optimum efficacy, the product must have a high level of bioavailability, which is the reason that Skinade is a liquid, a drink.
‘We were all sceptical at first with “Better Skin from Within,” a drinkable bottle versus all the services we offer. We quickly realized this was a good complement to the services we offer and as a product taken alone. Our patients love Skinade! They have reported that after just a 30-day period, they’ve noticed an increase in their skin hydration, reduced appearance of wrinkles and lines, healthier nails, stronger hair, and just an all over glow,’ says Christina Cosca, Marketing Director for Bella Cosmetic Surgery, National Harbor, MD.
Plastic Surgeon Mark E. Richards from Bethesda, MD has also been extremely pleased with the response from his patients who have tried Skinade. ‘Even my most critical patients have been pleased with Skinade’s results,’ he says.
Skinade® offers a non-conflicting additional revenue stream, and as an essential part of any beauty regime, will ensure repeated footfall.
