The Importance of Buying Direct
As you may know, Schuco International recently entered into an exclusive distribution partnership with Med-fx for our Princess® Dermal Filler product range. This means that the Princess® Dermal Filler range is only available through Med-fx or Schuco, and any other source or distributor are not authorised by the manufacturers.
Sometimes clinics can be lured away from direct distributors by cheaper prices found elsewhere on the internet, and whilst this may be tempting it can in fact expose your business (and your patients) to significant risks such as counterfeiting, improper storage and expired products. This is why we strongly advise any customers considering a purchase to consider the benefits and advantages of buying direct…
What are Princess® Dermal Fillers?
Our Princess® HA Dermal Fillers are a range of aesthetic injectables developed by Croma Pharma. Since 1994, 45 million syringes of Princess® Dermal Filler have been produced: a testament to the high quality of the product and their reputation for product excellence. However, the aesthetics market has always had to contend with issues relating to counterfeit products, price wars, and non-direct distribution across a whole variety of products.
When it comes to dermal fillers, these issues can have significant consequences not only for patient safety, but for the customer’s business, finances and reputation.
Safety Concerns from Unauthorised Distribution
At Schuco, we pride ourselves on our high level of integrity and our core values and we go to great lengths to ensure our customers receive the highest quality products and customer service. When customers purchase Princess® HA dermal fillers through us, they have the reassurance that the products are genuine and have been supplied through a tightly controlled supply chain, in line with the manufacturers’ instructions. This means that product has been stored, transported and rotated properly, and customers can be confident that the products are safe to use with their patients. In addition, we are able to offer our customers ongoing clinical support and adhere to proper AE reporting guidelines thanks to accurate tracking and logging of batch numbers.
However, if clinics purchase Princess® HA dermal fillers through unauthorised, non-direct channels they do not have access to any of this support and reassurance. There is no way to be sure if the product has been stored and transported safely and correctly, and the risk of receiving counterfeit goods is that much higher when there is not a highly controlled supply chain in place. Should there be any clinical problems following usage in a patient, you would not have access to dedicated clinical support, product tracking or reporting – and certainly no redress from a financial perspective – leaving the clinic out of pocket.
The usage of exclusive distributors allows us to provide a heightened level of safety, support, and reassurance to practitioners who use Princess® HA dermal fillers, and by purchasing direct from Med-fx or Schuco, you can be sure the product in question is compliant with all safety standards and regulations.
