Choosing the right aesthetic devices from Rohrer Aesthetics can help you laser-focus on your practice’s ROI

Rohrer by the Numbers: Laser-Focus on Your Practice’s ROI

Starting or expanding a successful aesthetics practice comes with a dilemma. To generate revenue, practitioners have to offer the most relevant, in-demand treatment options. But keeping pace with trends usually requires a significant up-front investment in new technologies. Many big-name manufacturers of aesthetic devices charge over $100k for each technology, which creates a significant barrier to realizing a return on investment.

At Rohrer Aesthetics, we’re here to change that. Using data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, we crunched the numbers to see how quickly our devices pay for themselves with some of today’s most popular procedures. That way, you can see how quickly you can maximize your ROI and reap the most benefits for your practice. 

Spectrum Device - 4 Lasers + IPL for five aesthetic devices in oneSpectrum Laser/IPL System | $74,995    

The Spectrum is a multi-platform system with four unique lasers and Intense Pulsed Light. With the Spectrum, you can offer a comprehensive range of popular cosmetic treatments, including these top procedures.

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (also IPL Photofacial or Photo Rejuvenation) has gained a lot of traction fast. With over 827,000 procedures performed in the U.S. in 2020, IPL is in the top 5 minimally invasive cosmetic procedures today. It’s also the most popular laser treatment for improving the skin’s texture and complexion—and with the incredible results Rohrer’s devices produce, patients will want to come back for more.

Laser Hair Removal

With an average of 6-8 sessions per patient per area treated, laser hair removal is a sure-fire way to encourage repeat business. In fact, over 750,000 laser hair removal procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2020. 

Because many standalone hair removal devices are so costly, some aesthetic practitioners have become reluctant to offer this treatment. But with Rohrer’s Spectrum, you get five powerful technologies for a fraction of the average cost, so you can begin maximizing your ROI and diversifying your offerings straight away.

And because, on average, they’ll need 2-3 treatments to see optimal results, this technology is another great recurring revenue stream.
