Did you know that patients attending an aesthetic clinic spend an average of £60 per month on topical cosmetic products? Did you know 80% of these sales are made online or on the High St? Did you know the industry average is only 5% retail to treatment ratio yet 5 Squirrels customers can easily achieve 25% using our winning business support tools. This means that patients attending your clinic maybe buying inappropriate or sub therapeutic products from unqualified outlets in an attempt to achieve the cosmetic outcomes they require.

Set goals and targets
Create some KPI’s for your overall business to increase your treatment to retail ratio.
Number of treatments v number of clients who bought at least 1 product for home treatment. What is your current ratio, do you know?
Set individual targets and overall clinic targets, reward success
Link products to treatments or concerns using 5 Squirrels skin rituals or pre and post procedural protocols.
Start all patient visits with a skin fitness assessment
Using 5 Squirrels skin fitness assessment tool as part of a patient consultation and consent process will allow your patients to open up about their skin issues and explain which products they are currently using and how they are meeting their concerns. If they are working well, why are they in clinic?
This will give you an opportunity to discuss the cause of their issues and the ingredients proven to treat the issue, educating the client and making them a participant in their journey, gently waking them up to the fact their brand loyalty to High St brands is not being rewarded with their desired outcomes.
