Though Ali loved her career in acute care medicine, she also missed doing art and being creative. Aesthetics seemed like the perfect blend of art and science!
She got her feet wet in aesthetics by shadowing clinicians, going to conferences, doing many hours of research, and trying treatments herself. After all of that she knew for certain that she wanted to work in aesthetics so long as 4 criterium were met:
- Safety always the #1 priority with evidence based practice protocols, long enough appointment times, and treating aesthetics as a real medical specialty (because it is).
- A holistic approach to aesthetics and patient care where not only the whole face was assessed but also the whole person, including their physical and emotional health.
- Doing the right thing for people, even if it means no treatment; “people over profits“. This also means, be honest but be kind, no one should leave feeling worse about themselves.
- Artistic, natural results should always be the end goal. Every face is unique and should be treated as a work of art instead of injecting everyone the same and getting fake results.
Long story short, a clinic with all of the above seemingly didn’t exist. So, Ali created it.
Ali continues to go to trainings all over to work with experts and bring their expertise back to Elite. She also personally hires and trains all staff at Elite to ensure that the above 4 are consistent among the clinic and it’s providers. You can be rest assured you will get great treatment and results from ALL of our providers.
