Happy New Year and Happy Chinese New Year (of the Tiger) to you all, and welcome to the third edition of our CUTERA Connection newsletter, designed to help keep all our customers and followers in Australia & New Zealand up to date with our latest corporate and regional news. We received some great feedback on the first editions. Therefore, we are committed to continuing with this initiative and helping keep you all informed. As we mark the first weeks of the new year, I want to take a moment to look back on 2021 and thank you all for your trust and support over the past 12 months.
Let me start by addressing the new elephant in the room – Omicron. Just as we thought we had overcome all the obstacles and disrupters COVID could throw at us, along comes another curveball in the form of the Omicron variant. Whilst in no way wanting to play down the seriousness of this variant, it is encouraging to know that the resilience we have all displayed in overcoming COVID to date, the fact the vast majority of people are fully vaccinated and the reality that our Governments have come to the conclusion that total lockdowns are an economy killer and are now a thing of the past, has us in a great position as we look to the future with a high degree of optimism. We can now have a strategic growth plan and put the necessary steps in place to implement that plan. Whether that be recruiting new positions, investing in advanced technology, or simply executing more effectively without constant disruption, we can see a light at the end of this tunnel.
This is where CUTERA can be a valuable asset to anybody looking at that next investment in advanced technology to help accelerate the growth in your clinic and satisfy a gap in your treatment offerings and capitalise on two of the fastest-growing categories in the aesthetics space – skin rejuvenation and non-invasive body contouring. CUTERA offers best-in-class technology that is effective, safe, easy to use and offer incredible ROI. We also support all our customers with a dedicated team of Business Development Managers to partner with you to drive success from your investment.
In times of uncertainty, confidence and optimism are critical to helping you be successful moving forward. In spite of all the global challenges, COVID has thrown at us, along with all the local Govt imposed lockdowns throughout the past 2 years, thanks to the amazing team of people I have at CUTERA ANZ, coupled with the support, confidence and loyalty we receive from you, our customers, CUTERA ANZ has delivered our 4th consecutive record year on the back of our Excel V+, TruBody systems (truSculpt iD and FLEX), XEO and Enlighten platforms.
As we embark on a new year with new challenges in 2022, on behalf of my entire team at CUTERA ANZ, I would like to wish you every success both personally and professionally. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us at CUTERA should the need arise. Before I go, it would be remiss of me if I didn’t also remind everyone that our flagship educational event, CUTERA University Clinical Forum (CUCF) is being held in Sydney on May 6-8. Feedback from over 200 delegates was that last year’s event at the “W” Hotel in Melbourne was exceptional, CUCF 2022 will be even better and not be missed so jump online and register early to guarantee a place for you and possibly a reward for some key staff.
At CUTERA, we value the opportunity to partner with you and we do not take your support for granted – hence the significant investments in headcount I have made in post-sale support positions such as Business Development, Education & Training & Service. These have been very well received by current CUTERA system owners and will continue as we grow. Whether you are investing in your 5th system or embarking on your 1st, you are not alone when you partner with CUTERA. We’ve got you!
All the best in 2022 and I look forward to catching up with you at CUTERA University or one of the many upcoming industry events.
Be safe and successful.
