From Dentistry to Aesthetics
Originally qualifying as a dental surgeon from the University of Leeds in 2009 I spent a few years working for the NHS and eventually managing my own dental clinic in 2013. I entered into the dynamic world of aesthetics a few years later after switching careers from dentistry to aesthetic practitioner. I’ve always been interested in this industry and with the support of my family I made the move.
I quickly managed to build an extensive network of patients. My patients are the heart of my business and I work with them on an individual basis to address their insecurities and to tweak areas of concern to help build confidence. Seeing their reaction when I show them their results, always reassures me that I chose the right path.
Alongside my own work, I am also a trainer for Acquisition Aesthetics training academy. Here I train dentists, doctors and nurses the art and science of facial aesthetics. From foundation level through to advanced and at a masterclass level.
I specialise in non-surgical treatments and am known for the “undetectable tweak-ments”. Subtle changes that when someone looks at you and says you look really fresh today; they have no idea why and ask what’s the secret?!
For me it’s not about changing someone’s face it’s about enhancing their own beauty and balancing out their profile for a contoured sculpted look. I want to empower my patients to look and feel their ultimate best. Giving someone confidence is why I love my job.
One of my favourite treatments to do is the tear trough treatment and cheeks together. The tear trough is a small amount of filler injected between the cheek and just under the eyes which instantly reduces dark circles and restores loss of volume. In addition to adding volume to the cheeks, this makes such a difference and an impact. After this treatment my patients have such an emotional response as this is almost a last resort; they’ve tried all the skincare, eye creams and nothing has worked. It’s not all about vanity it’s about really making someone feel comfortable in their own skin. The most rewarding part is seeing them walk away with a huge smile on their face and a spring in their step.
A goal of mine for the future is to help educate people on aesthetics and to remove the stigma and negativity against non-surgical treatments. To help empower people and make them feel their best.
