COSMEDICINE NURSE AT THE FACE PLACE

What do you do? Most of my day in­volves be­ing a nee­dle ninja. My main fo­cus is Bo­tox, and PRP [platelet-rich plasma] treat­ments such as the vam­pire fa­cial made fa­mous by Kim Kar­dashian. What are your favourite as­pects of your role? There are so many treat­ments at The Face Place that are more than just cos­metic. I be­came a nurse to make a dif­fer­ence, and I know that I’m do­ing that here. Any ca­reer ad­vice? Don’t be dis­heart­ened by hear­ing “No”. This is a niche in­dus­try, and get­ting your foot in the door can be a chal­lenge. Ap­proach a cosmedicine clinic and ask if you can ob­serve some treat­ments. Make your pas­sion, ea­ger­ness to learn and ex­cite­ment ap­par­ent; it worked for me! How do you get ahead in your line of work? Nurs­ing is all about ther­a­peu­tic re­la­tion­ships with your clients. We dis­cuss such per­sonal things and you meet peo­ple in their most vul­ner­a­ble mo­ments. Be­ing un­bi­ased, non-judg­men­tal, truth­ful and trans­par­ent is cru­cial.
