Are you a doctor considering a career move into facial aesthetics? Since 2002 we have trained and mentored thousands of doctors, allowing them to establish a successful career in medical aesthetics. An example of this is Dr Kalpna Pindolia, who recently attended a Refresher Botox and Dermal Filler training course with the team here at Cosmetic Courses and has now set up her clinic; Envisage Aesthetics.
Read on as Kalpna discusses her journey into aesthetics and offers some advice if you’re a doctor considering this type of career move.
What is your background?
I am a registered Doctor working in Emergency Medicine. Alongside this I am now a mobile Aesthetic Doctor for my own clinic; Envisage Aesthetics.
Why did you decide to move into facial aesthetics?
My main aim was to have a better work-life balance and I have always wanted to establish and maintain my own independent business. I knew facial aesthetics would provide me with both of these things.
Why did you decide to train with Cosmetic Courses?
They had glowing testimonials and the personal interactions with their caring team were amazing. They offer high quality training with experienced practitioners within the context of ongoing support with your career progression. It was excellent value for money.
How did you find your training experience?
My training with Cosmetic Courses was simply excellent. I had an experienced and approachable practitioner, in a dedicated clinic environment, with models provided by Cosmetic Courses for clinical practice.
What do you enjoy most about your aesthetic work?
One area of my aesthetic work that I enjoy is practising high standards of communication in a privately-led environment for the process of informed consent. This, as well as the artistry involved which complements the clinical skills required for the process of getting achievable results. I also like establishing effective professional relationships with clients in the long term in order to address their needs over time.
What would you say to other doctors thinking about training in aesthetics?
Training in Botox and Dermal Fillers is a fantastic opportunity to achieve a work-life balance whilst still using your clinical expertise – including communication skills, practical techniques and running your own business. It is not an easy option, but very rewarding if you are willing to put in the time, effort and enthusiasm.
