Good news and bad news – 20% Off Juvaderm, Radiesse, and Expressions during February

The Affordable Care Act, enacted in 2010, has imposed a few changes on the way we conduct business. One of those changes became effective in January 2013 – the new Federal Excise Tax of 2.3% on all medical devices. While the political implications of this legislation are important, we’re in the spa business and as such we try to remain as neutral and zen-like as possible in all things.
Unfortunately, this tax affects a service which Ology Spa and Eppley Plastic Surgery offer. Injectable fillers, such as Juvaderm, Radiesse, and Expression are classified as medical devices and are thus included in the new federal excise tax. In order to maintain the fiscal health of our small businesses, we will be modestly increasing the price of our injectable filler treatments in order to absorb this new tax. These price increases will become effective February 1, 2013.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that there are methods to avoid these new cost increases which will allow you to receive these treatments at a discount. The first way is to join the Brilliant Distinctions program sponsored by Allergan (the manufacturer of Juvaderm). Brilliant Distinctions members are eligible for various rebates through Allergan – and it’s typically very simple to use the program once you’ve enrolled.

Another method to ensure you receive discounted pricing on these treatments is to connect with us. Monitor Ology Spas Facebook posts by ‘liking’ our page, join our email list (if you’ve not already done so), and keep an eye on the Current newspapers (in Hamilton county) and the ICON (in Hendricks county) where we run monthly ads for treatment specials.
To join our email list, simply contact our Guest Services staff at Info@eppleylifestylespa.com and ask to be placed on the list, or to update your email address.
We appreciate your business and your loyalty, and will continue to strive to offer the most attentive, effusive and gracious service possible. If you would like to reserve an appointment in February for Juvaderm, Radiesse, or Expression fillers, we will extend to you a 20% discount through February 28, 2013.
