How did you get your start?
My medical career is a hybrid between working for the NHS helping patients working in hospital and in family medicine along with working in cosmetics has given me the respect as I really look at the patients’ health as well as beauty needs! I graduated from medical school and was always interested in plastic surgery/cosmetics and dermatology. Throughout my medical career focussed on skin cancers and improvement of skin and health. I worked in the classics department in Greater Manchester for a while. This was followed by realising I loved the non-surgical side far more purely because of the benefits of reduced downtime and complications with instant results.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to get lip fillers for the first time?
Do your research! Make sure your injector is top notch. It is too common these days and you want to avoid having someone who does not understand the correct anatomy. Must ask for their before and afters / medical degrees and complications! Do not be shy!
