What is your medical background?

I am a Dental surgeon that graduated in 2005 from Ukrainian Medical Stomatological Academy, ORE Kings College London 2013.

Why did you decide to go into aesthetics?

Since the age of 17, I have always been interested in skin care and skin health. Back in my student years I was a model and had my own model agency in Ukraine. From this, I understood beauty standards in various aspects of our life. In 2009, I moved to the UK with my husband who was an MSK consultant that offered training in aesthetics. We started a business that I took over and successfully run today. The combination of the required skills and being in the right place at the right time really drove this success. This involved having a strong knowledge of the head and neck anatomy, facial proportion, and angles. Combined with the manual skills as a Dentist and a comprehensive understanding of beautification and beauty proportions for different age groups combining my fashion and medical knowledge which really helped me set my business apart from others. This solidified my choice of a career in Medical Aesthetics.

What training did you take?

I have completed many training courses in my professional career and will continue to actively learn and develop new skills as there is always room to learn more. My journey began by booking a micro needling course in 2011 with Cosmetic Courses. In 2013 I attended injectable training courses within aesthetic medicine. All of my training was completed with Cosmetic Courses. I have also attended training courses ran by Allergan Medical Institute, Sinclair College, Dr.Jacques Otto and SkinMed.

Do you still go on courses and why?

As an educator myself, I always need to have evidence-based knowledge and be able to answer the questions my students may have. Therefore, I always attend training courses and conferences to keep my knowledge up to date.

What is your advice for anyone starting out?

To decide if aesthetics is the right career path for you, you need to try it. If you have been thinking about it for a while, I would encourage you to book a course as it can open a whole new world of amazing opportunities.

Your opinion of the industry?

The aesthetics industry is fast growing as it becomes a part of our lifestyle and is seen as regular care for a lot of people. We all want to feel younger than our biological age so why should we not look it? Therefore, I see the aesthetics industry growing more in the future. I think that there will be a time soon when the industry will have better regulation. This means that only medical professionals with the appropriate training will be able to offer treatments so that the patients enjoy quality treatments that are safe.
