I started my blog for many reasons. One of the main reasons is to cut through all the hype and misinformation in the Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery Industry. I hope to educate my readers on how to separate fairy tales from the truth.
My mission is Safety and Education in Beauty. My passion stems from over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry as a Beauty Industry insider, plastic surgery publicist, consumer and patient.
As a consumer and patient I’ve had good results, bad results, and mediocre results. I’ve been given excellent information and misinformation about treatments. I’ve had an allergic reaction to filler, encapsulated filler, lumps and a scar caused by a laser resurfacing treatment. My facelift experience was not the positive journey I would want my clients to have. As an early adopter to Botox injections (prior to FDA approval), I’ve been both over-Botox-ed and under Botox-ed. I’ve looked like a duck, been bruised, swollen, red and scaly. I’ve been treated by the top Thought Leaders in Dermatology and Plastic Surgery with both great and average results.
On the professional side, I’ve worked with skin care manufactures and chemists who formulate private label professional products for the medical market, as well as consumer brands. As a publicist, patient advocate and marketer, I’ve coached plastic surgeons, dermatologists, as well as other aesthetic medical professionals.
All of my experiences has led to my ongoing passion to educate consumers on all aspects of aesthetic medicine.
As the aesthetic industry becomes increasingly competitive, more non-core specialty doctors will enter the field of cosmetic producers. It is more important than ever before that you are well-informed and make the right choice.
Personally, I’ll continue to use modern technology and treatments to stay looking as good I as can. I’m happy to be living in an “age” of medical cosmetic wonders.
As a patient advocate and cosmetic surgery coach, I hope to make a difference through patient education. Through collaboration with the medical community and aesthetic companies we can strive for a safer industry.
