WHAT IS AESTHETIC MEDICINE?
Aesthetic Medicine is the practice of non-surgical procedures to reverse the effects of ageing – the most popular being Botox and fillers. There are about 18 non-surgical procedures that can be carried out. As a doctor, you would already have many of the skills necessary to perform these types of procedures to a high standard.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO PRACTICE?
You have a certain degree of flexibility in how you operate. You can use aesthetic medicine to supplement your income or you can do it full time. Generally, you can take the following routes (and combine them if you wish):
- Work for a company – you turn up, perform your treatments and take a commission per patient.This means that you will not have the pressure of developing your own client base.
- Set up your own practice – potentially, you can make a lot more money but you have the pitfalls of running your own business.
- Mobile private practice – this can allow for a lot more flexibility, as you are not paying the rental costs for hiring your own premises full time.
HOURS AND PAY
Your hours are completely up to you! It is something that can be done alongside your NHS job, as a way of supplementing your income.
Pay varies according to whether you work for a clinic in which case you are probably looking at £50-£100 per hour; or whether you work for yourself in which case you can demand the treatment price less materials.
