Rachel Dewar, LPN

We are excited to introduce Rachel Dewar as the latest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series. Rachel participated in a 1-on-1 Customized Training with Cristina Herman in Aug 2022.

What were you doing before you got into aesthetics?

Before entering into the aesthetics world I have worked in general medicine as a LPN for the last eight years and I do love it. I am currently enrolled in a bridge to registered nurse program!

What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics?

I decided to look into other aspects of nursing as I wanted to explore my creative side, I found aesthetics when my passion for skin care naturally drew me in. I currently work as a contractor out of a busy clinic in Nanaimo BC. Building a clientele is a challenge at the beginning and I am still working on it! I also work part time in acute medicine at the hospital!.

Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program?

I chose the personalized training program at the Confidence Lab because I wanted to train alongside individuals who have a passion for what they are doing. As an outsider it was quite clear that this team has extensive knowledge about the industry and injecting technique. Being extremely new to this industry I saw a lot of trainings being offered by Providers where they have one injector in their clinic. The Confidence Lab was very different in how the workplace supports the learning among multiple injectors to create this amazing team of leaders in the industry. I find it extremely motivating that all of the injectors at the Confidence Bar are also continuing their education at all times and that this was being supported in the workplace. Even going from RNs to nurse practitioners!

I think one of the key points I learned in my training was to treat my current clients like family and give them 100% every time I see them. This has allowed me to build rapport & trust.

What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics?

My favourite aspect of working in aesthetics is the confidence you can give an individual almost instantly. It is a humbling feeling to be able to give a person a little bit of new found confidence!

What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field?

Advice I would give is to never stop being your authentic self! Keep persevering, keep learning!
