Angeline DeiSanti, MD, MBA
Introducing Angeline DeiSanti the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series. Angeline recently took part in a Customized Full Day Advanced Training with Cristina Herman. Here is an Instagram reel from the training.
What were you doing before you got into aesthetics?
Before I went into aesthetics, I was a full time hospital-based physician. I was double board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics for a number of year and I practices inpatient medicine for over 15 years. Later, I completed my Master's in Business Administration and left full time hospital medicine for a more administrative role.
What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics?
Beauty, skincare, and fashion have always been hobbies of mine. I was the kid who had makeup parties with my friends at the age of 12. After getting my MBA and realizing I was a burned out physician, I decided to merge my healthcare background with my passion for aesthetics. My ultimate goal is to create a more comprehensive aesthetics and wellness clinic where people can come to not only look better, but feel better.
Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program?
I was most attracted to the Confidence Bar because of Rana's aesthetics philosophy. Her more holistic approach to aesthetics resonated with me. I appreciate the time she takes to get to know the patient's goals and explain the risks and limitations of treatments. In addition, I really want to support a community spirit in the aesthetics industry as a whole I notice a lot of competition, finger-pointing, and "clique-y-ness" (for lack of a better term). I love that Rana has tried throughout her career to rise above this. Because of these things, I was excited to visit the practice and learn how I can incorporate, not only the safety-grounded injection techniques, but this inclusive and inviting atmosphere into my own practice.
What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics?
I enjoy meeting new people and helping them feel a better about the way they look and feel. AND I love learning new things! There is so much to learn in this field!
What are you doing now?
Currently I am working for a managed care organization and running my aesthetics business part time. My services are simple and include botulinum toxin injections, fillers, and chemical peels. Shortly after my training at the Confidence Lab, I began renting out a beautiful new studio space that I love.
What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field?
I would say do your homework first. It's easy to start a business in aesthetics, but not necessarily easy to make it profitable. Resist chasing the shiny objects that you see (ie. the latest lasers, devices, trends). Find a few things that you can learn to do well before you expand.
