This week we revisit our conversation with Erin Hennessey, APRN, when she stopped by to talk about all facets of energy-based skin treatment. In this wide-ranging discussion, she covered:

  • Her path from energy-based treatments for burn injuries to scar treatment to skin rejuvenation;
  • The importance of listening to what the patient wants to improve first;
  • Steps to take before opening your own practice;
  • Ways she gets patients to adopt energy-based treatments;
  • The importance of social media in marketing energy-based treatments;
  • How to decide when to add devices to your practice;
  • What to consider when choosing which device to add;
  • Ablative vs. non-ablative lasers and legislative trends with regard to supervision; and
  • Who should be able to provide laser treatments.
