"I was inspired to teach when I did not receive the correct or adequate training and made mistakes when I first started Cosmetic Tattoo. I traveled to United States to further my education and finally received the right training and after many months and huge expense I finally completed my training and also completed further training called “Train the Trainer” which allowed me to teach. My passion to share my education, experience and wanting to do it right inspired me to teach all I want to learn when I was starting out to ensure I perform remarkable results that made a difference to my loyal clients.

The Partnership Born From A Revolution
This revolution has seen a need to develop partnerships between two industries that were previously quite separate – beauty therapy and cosmetic medicine. While this union might still be in its infancy, paramedical aesthetician can play a vital role in providing safe and effective non-invasive treatments as well as pre and post op care and increase profit margins in your practice.
I often refer to the partnership between the two professions as ‘Beauty and the Beast’. The therapist plays the role of Beauty, as we all know the traditional beautician’s role is to beautify, and their treatments are generally non-invasive. Cosmetic physicians and surgeons earn their title because their treatment is often more aggressive and sometimes invasive. But if we follow the famous fairy tale, opposites teaming up can have a happy ending – in our case… “ a successful business full of satisfied and healthy clients”.
This is a great time for the developments in the skin care industry by implementing a new approach developed using the latest research in cellular rejuvenation and advancements to answering the demands of the aesthetic professionals in preventative and corrective skin non-invasive, surgical procedures in treating ageing skin with little or no down time.
Amanda Presented at the Doctors A5M confrence in August 2016 at Melbourne Sofitel hotel to 600 Cosmetic Doctors on the benefits of having a Paramedical Aesthetician in there team and practice performing cosmetic tattoo, Laser tattoo removal and combining mechanical and chemical treatments to maximize patient results. Networking together to bring a holistic approach between Medicine and Beauty together just like “beauty and the Best”.
Teaching to perform treatment programs to deliver “real results not just promises” to set you apart from your competitors and allowing you to practice alongside doctors.
These days, cosmetic physicians and surgeons are acknowledging the importance of having a PA on their team of professional staff. Either in their practice or the aesthetician’s clinic. Another added benefit for physicians is that paramedical aestheticians have a huge database of clients. This creates a win-win situation for both industries. And often a physician’s clients, who may not be ideally suited to significant cosmetic surgery, can find solutions with the paramedical aesthetician.
Given the explosion in the industry, cosmetic physicians and surgeons no longer have the time to perform pre and post-operative care like prescribing skin care or buffing and polishing skin and to preform non-invasive treatments for patients – and this is where a growing number of paramedical aestheticians are stepping in to fill the void.
The success of a qualified paramedical aesthetician lies in how they combine education, knowledge and experience to provide clients with a holistic result. This means going beyond text-book formulas, to create a complete program that addresses the client’s specific needs
A well-educated paramedical aesthetician will utilize their skills and experience to develop solutions that exceed client expectations. Partnering up with a cosmetic physician or surgeon to enhance these results.
