Counsultion

by Dr. Yuri Okabe & Dr. René du Cloo
Tokyo Skin Clinic

Decades ago cosmetic surgery was performed by a handful of superspecialists. It was meant for a handful of special patients who could afford it.

Those times are long over. More and more doctors, who are fed up with endless cuts in budgets for medical care, have turned to cosmetic businesses. With rapidly developing technologies, even novices can nowadays easily pretend to be specialists just by advertizing new medical devices.

This trend has led to the struggle for existence between an ever increasing number of clinics. They have started to target "ordinary” people. Unfortunately, there are still not enough patients.

 

So, what do they do? The clinics compete with each other by advertizing incredibly low prices.
Hyaluronic acid injection from 10,000 yen per 0.1 cc? Impossible, no product comes in a package of less than 0.5 cc, and the product costs much more than 10,000. Maybe you would be sharing the same syringe with 4 other patients. Maybe you would still have to pay 50,000 yen for the whole syringe – plus something.
Free consultation? How is that possible while the hourly wage of a doctor is a few hundred dollars? The answer is that the consultation is for the doctor to convince you that you should undergo a costly procedure so he can earn his bread by doing it.

One-year pass for an unlimited number of sessions of laser hair removal? Sure, you pay a huge sum of money to buy the pass first. Later, “Sorry, no opening.”
Beware of inviting advertizements. Cosmetic procedures are not cheap. If you decide to have one, you should be prepared to save enough to get proper treatment and pay accordingly.
