If you are new to the aesthetic industry, you’re probably discovering all the tricks of the trade. There is one tip that is great for you, your practice and your clients. Both Allergan and Galderma, the leaders in the aesthetic industry, offer a “Frequent Flyer” program for patients. This is something that will not only benefit you, but also your returning patients.
How it works for Patients
Galderma’s Aspire program offers different amounts of points for different treatments. For example, 400 points for Restylane or 200 points for Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA). You can earn 100 points by referring a friend who joins the program (up to 5 per year), or you can earn points by taking a monthly quiz. Depending on the number of points you have, you are placed in a different level of loyalty. The higher level you are, or the more points you have, the more valuable your rewards will be.
Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions is also a point-based system based on the treatment and number of treatments as well as their line of Skin Medica products. For example, the program offers 400 points for Kybella or 200 points for Botox. Then the points can be redeemed for savings (100 points = 10 dollars, 200 points = $20 and so on).
How it works for Physicians
As an injector, your practice can choose to accept these rewards. Allergan and Galderma will then reimburse you for the amount discounted. This is a great offer for your clients because you are able to offer them discounts, without costing you anything out of pocket. As a physician, you can also earn points for the products you buy. The more products you buy, the more points you will accrue.
