Q&A with Stacey

How did you first get started in the field of Aesthetic Medicine?

I was exposed to Aesthetic Medicine prior to becoming a Physician Assistant student at UCLA in 2004. I worked at a dermatology office in Beverly Hills and was able to observe some of the Botox® clinical trials taking place as well as several dermal filler procedures. Then during PA school, I did a Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery rotation as well as a Dermatology rotation and got even more interested in the aesthetic side of medicine.
After graduating PA school in 2008 I actually went with my roommate to her first Botox appointment and just so happened to be interviewed on the spot when I told her injector that I had just graduated and was interested in the field of Aesthetics! Talk about fate…?!
So, that’s when my career in Aesthetic Medicine began and almost 10 years later, I’m even more passionate about this field and am truly committed to the beauty of building confidence through cosmetic medicine.

That people will look overdone and fake after getting injectables. While this is possible, it’s certainly not a given- especially with an expert Injector performing your treatment!
