  • Customized jawline and chin hands-on training at The Confidence Lab

    Dr. Huang and I have been having customized aesthetic training together for the past 15 years, where does the time go! Dr. Huang has her own concierge practice focusing on weight loss, hormones, and internal medicine and wellness. I'm always grateful when she contacts me for another aesthetic training, we talk shop, inject models together and I also get to treat her. Our training was focused on a well-contoured jawline and chin.  As we age, the mandible recedes, and the chin becomes more anterior and shorter …. this leads to the formation of those pesky jowls! Dr. Huang @mdspeaking meticulously brought back the definition that aging and gravity stole.  Using Hyaluronic acid filler, needle & cannula to reduce the depth of the mental crease, add chin projection with square in mind,  filling the prejowl region which was a game changer, deep subcutaneous injection for a more defined jawline. Oh, plus we gave him some sharper lateral cheek to pair up with his new jawline. His reaction is simply ‘wow’. I love these instant reaction first looks. Nothing is better than this confidence boost Contact The Confidence Lab now to schedule a customized training BEFORE AND AFTER RESULTS

  • The Injectables EDU Summit Florida

    Rana was the keynote speaker at the Injectables Education Summit in Orlando, Florida last weekend. She gave personal insights of business mishaps and successes. The conference was founded by Cassie Lane and Suzanne Jagger, who are aesthetic gurus and business owners and have been there and done it all. They have a passion to share and give others a better start in business than they had. Rana highly recommends The Injectables EDU Summit because it was a down-to-earth and collaborative event where people shared insights on starting or scaling their businesses. The venue was exceptional, exceeding expectations, and attendees formed many new friendships with like-minded individuals who share a passion for a fresh career start or building upon it. Whether you're interested in hands-on Botox training, launching and growing your business, or gaining advanced marketing and compliance insights, this summit provided a successful and collaborative way to learn and grow in the aesthetics industry. Next year, they hope to have the summit at the same venue, but their maybe a  date might change. Watch for it.

  • Where Are They Now? Rebecca Kaechele

    Welcome to "Where Are They Now?", a series that follows the journey of individuals who have attended one of our courses and how they have applied the skills and knowledge gained with us in their professional and personal lives. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we take pride in knowing that our program has had a positive impact on the lives of our attendees. Rebecca Kaechele, MSN, FNP-BC Introducing Rebecca Kaechele who took part in a Customized Full Day Advanced Training with Cristina on Dec 11 2023, and has also been a subscriber to Rana patreon since Oct 2023. What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? Prior to getting into aesthetics, I was a Nurse Practitioner in Functional Medicine. As a nurse, I spent many years in ICU, ER, and oncology and was searching for a better way to help people. This led me to the world of functional medicine where root cause approach was used rather than prescribing the pill for the ailment. I finally started to enjoy medicine again, and loved the constant learning that came with this field. What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? As I grew in my functional medicine role, I loved helping people feel good, but felt something was missing for me and my patients. I had long enjoyed the hands-on aspect of medicine during my nursing years and was missing using my skills and techniques with patients. I also felt that functional medicine and aesthetics paired well together, as you could make someone look as good as they feel on the inside. A lot of patients journey in the functional space takes quite some-time and they get hyper focused on the “negatives” of their body, both internal and external. This occurred to me during my years of child-bearing and post-partum, as I had multiple extra health issues during this time. I lost a sense of me for quite some time, and it took me a while to feel “good” again. Shortly after this, I received my first two aesthetic treatments.  I knew then I wanted to devote my career to enhancing a women’s appearance, not for just the external view, but for the internal effects it has mentally and emotionally. Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? As I began venturing into aesthetics, I did a lot of research on where I wanted to train and who I wanted to learn from. Rana and The Confidence Lab kept popping up. I had also been given their name as a recommendation from a fellow local injector. The philosophy of safe, natural aesthetic treatments spoke to me and the goals I had for my learning and my future patients. The welcoming vibe on the website and social media was exactly what I received the day of, and I couldn’t have been happier with my training experience!  I liked it so much I went twice in 3 months! What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? My favorite aspect of working in aesthetics is the relationships you make with the patients. The patients are not only trusting you with enhancing their features, but many times are being super vulnerable discussing things they may be insecure about. Having someone feel comfortable enough to voice those concerns with you, and feel you’ve provided a safe space to do so is such an honor. As time progresses, I have many patients who feel like friends, or old friends who have come to see me, making the workday feel like a day with girlfriends. I absolutely love what I do and don’t feel like I am ever at work! What are you doing now? I opened my own Practice in December of 2023. It’s funny how things work, because this wasn’t my full initial plan, but things sort of fell into place and here I am. I currently own Cahaba Aesthetics based in northern Illinois. I am continuing to grow in my aesthetic knowledge, learning to be a business owner, and finishing my doctoral degree. What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? My best advice to anyone wanting to get into aesthetics is to invest in yourself and your education. While it is daunting in the beginning, investing in the RIGHT education will pay off. You want to have a solid foundation and know that your teachers are invested in the safety of you and the patient. These injectors will become resources to you and they are a great team to have behind you! Combining hands-on courses with continued knowledge from patreon has helped quite a bit to continue to learn in-between hands-on sessions.

  • Meet Becky Berkan & Genea Grossen

    Welcome our series that follows the journey of individuals who have attended one of our courses and how they have applied the skills and knowledge gained in their professional and personal lives. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we take pride in knowing that our program has had a positive impact on the lives of our attendees. Becky Berkan & Genea Grossen Introducing Aesthetic Nurses Becky Berkan & Genea Grossen founders of BellaReis Med Spa who took part on Feb 28 2024 in a Customized Advanced Full Day Training with Rana. What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? We are both emergency room nurses in Madison, WI and continue to practice at the bedside while growing our aesthetic business. With over two decades of experience in the ED, Becky and fifteen years under Genea's belt, we felt well-equipped to a slight change in our career paths. The shift from emergency medicine to aesthetic nursing may seem unconventional, but it's a testament to the adaptability and diverse skill set that we possess and we were ready for it! What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? Our fascination with this nursing niche has always been met with the harsh reality of challenging and, honestly, disheartening entry barriers. The competition is intense, and breaking into the scene requires starting from square one. After the emotional toll of the COVID pandemic, we found it necessary to take a slight step back from the bedside. During this time, a unique opportunity emerged—a chance to collaborate with a physician and establish a med spa in our little hometown. Despite our lack of knowledge about launching a small business, we hit the ground running, and voila! BellaReis came into existence! Having the opportunity to build long-term relationships with patients is a change from our ED background. In aesthetic nursing, we have the chance to have a positive impact on people's lives over time. It's a chance to contribute to their overall well-being in a more profound and enduring way than we have been subject to all our years in the ED and THAT is what fuels the drive! Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? The reason that we chose The Confidence Lab is multifaceted. The first being, Rana. Rana has been an injector that we have admired and followed since beginning our aesthetic journey just 2 short years ago. She stands as a beacon of knowledge and experience in the field  and comes with years of experience and a stellar reputation. Rana brings a level of expertise that is unparalleled. Her commitment to staying up-to-date on the latest advancements made us know that we would be getting the best training possible at The Confidence Lab. Secondly, The Confidence Lab takes pride in providing a personalized and hands-on learning experience as well as a comprehensive curriculum. This is something we had not experienced before nor can you find in other training sessions. We had specific goals and The Confidence Lab understands that every professional comes with unique strengths and areas for improvement. Before our training, they called us to get our goals for the day and arranged individual models that met our needs. It was amazing. We were able to focus on what we came to learn so you felt you were getting your moneys worth every step of the way! The curriculum is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to excel in administering treatments that you may once struggled with, but now have confidence. Finally, we chose The Confidence Lab for its location. Not only is Chicago a great city, but for us, it's so close! We live up in Wisconsin, so Rana and her team are only a few hours away....making it very easy to come back. What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? There are so many to list! However, our favorite is probably how aesthetics allows for a blend of science and artistry. The ability to enhance someone's natural beauty and contribute to their confidence is a form of artistic expression that brings a different kind of fulfillment. Yes, in the ED we can save your life, but it's hard to explain the joy you get out of seeing someone cry happy tears when you hand them the mirror for the first time after a procedure. Being able to give someone that boost in their self-esteem is powerful on the soul! Additionally, we have met so many new friends and rekindled relationships with old friends. Witnessing the regular presence of our patients, who have evolved from acquaintances to friends and eventually become part of our extended family, is truly remarkable. It provides us with the chance to strengthen lasting connections over time which you can't get in other areas of healthcare. What are you doing now? We are in the second year of operating BellaReis Med Spa and loving every minute of it. Yes, we have had the lovely ups and downs of owning a business with your best friend, but we have persisted. We continue to work 2 days a week in the ED, but the remainder of the week is spent at the spa. We have made 2024 our year of education which is how we met our friends at The Confidence Bar. We are continuing to strive to be the best aesthetic providers for our patients. Both of us are in school pursuing our nurse practitioner degrees and we have families and children we are raising. Sometimes, it seems almost impossible to have this much on a plate, but we wouldn't have it any other way! What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? You do you! Do NOT get caught up on what Susie down the street is doing. Start small and get comfortable with just a few things in the beginning. Maybe Tox, then bring on various filler areas slowly. Always keep learning! You have access to so much great education online. Subscribe to a few Patreon accounts and use those fabulous injectors to teach you 365 days a year. Keep in mind, there is only so much you can learn from a computer screen, so make an effort to go to training and conferences. Might we suggest The Confidence Bar :) If you get the opportunity to be involved in entrepreneurial ventures, do it! This entrepreneurial aspect adds excitement and variety to the career, allowing YOU to shape your own professional destinies. OH! And you don't need a laser.

  • Boosting Confidence and Care: Joanne's Inspiring Journey in Aesthetic Transformation

    Have you heard the phrase "if you look good, you do good" ? It is an idea that looking your best can have a positive impact on your performance and overall well-being. It's based on the concept that one's appearance and self-perception can significantly influence their confidence and the way they interact with the world. Let me introduce you to Joanne, an amazing hospice nurse who really deserves some recognition for the great work she does.  We got to meet her for the first time in an aesthetic training and I was so thrilled that she wanted to be a model in the class. if anyone deserves a treatment she does!  She received her first ever tox treatment performed by one of the attendees in our class and I just love her response at her two week follow up. What's really special is hearing her talk about how the tox treatment has given her a motivational boost. She’s loving the reflection she sees in the mirror now. Check out the video to catch all those positive vibes she gives.  You cant help but smile. If you want to be a model in our hands on training you can register here: https://www.theconfidencelab.com/model We look forward to working with you.

  • Crafting a Resume: Essential Tips for Success

    At the Confidence Bar, we've have bravely waded through a sea of resumes, battling waves of bullet points and tides of "proficient in Microsoft Office." After countless rescues from the depths of resume monotony, we're here to share some resume-saving tips, gleaned from our extensive journey of resume evaluations. When adding your work history, highlight only the accomplishments and skills that are most relevant to the job. Your bullet points should be impactful statements that describe your responsibilities and achievements in your workplace. Do not just list off your 9-5 job duties. Tailor your resume for every job application (yes you heard me!). Different employers require different resumes, because every company has its own needs, objectives and values. Read the job description and ensure your resume tailors to the needs of the company. Often I hear, "I don't have work experience"...think of your transferable skills. Aesthetic medicine is still medicine. Do not diminish the value of your background just because your past work experience isn't "injector"; instead, demonstrate how your skills are transferable. Numerical values matter- this gives managers an idea of your level of work and responsibility. Instead of saying, "Worked busy triage", or "assisted in surgeries", consider the impact of " Over saw 60+ beds", "Participated in 200+ surgeries". When delivering your resume, face-to-face interactions carry greater significance and influence. Investing the effort to personally visit a company and engage with the manager may work in your favor in the end.

  • Where Are They Now? Abby Zimmerman

    Welcome to "Where Are They Now?", a series that follows the journey of individuals who have attended one of our courses and how they have applied the skills and knowledge gained with us in their professional and personal lives. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we take pride in knowing that our program has had a positive impact on the lives of our attendees. Abby Zimmerman DNP, FNP-BC Introducing Abby Zimmerman the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Abby has taken part in our Combined Full Days Hands-On Training Course and joined us for the Injector Bunny VIP Seminar at The Confidence Lab. What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? Prior to aesthetics I had experience in Emergency medicine and Interventional Radiology as an RN. I graduated with my DNP in 2018 and worked in a perioperative clinic as a Nurse practitioner for 5 years. I left in October 2023 to pursue aesthetic medicine fulltime! What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? I had always been fascinated by plastic surgery since I can remember. I had always dreamed of somehow finding a place in the world of plastics as NP. I loved that these procedures were helping people feel for confident in the way they looked or correcting issues that made people feel self conscious. When I was in graduate school I was introduced to the world of aesthetic medicine and was so intrigued by how many non surgical options that were available. I had searched for positions near me after I graduated. Unfortunately there wasn’t really much available in my area so in 2020 I signed up for my first aesthetics course! What are you doing now? After taking my course at the Confidence Lab I started renting a room on my own and practicing independently! It was a great learning experience but I still felt myself longing for something more. In October I made the leap to joining another injector in a larger practice, Elevate & co. Located in Milwaukee Wi! I met Elizabeth at another Confidence bar event last summer and we had kept in touch ever since. So far I have loved working as a team and being able to learn and bounce ideas off each other! Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? I chose the Confidence Labs training program because of its reputation of being the BEST and most welcoming environment. I had followed Rana on social media and Patreon prior to enrolling and I loved how open and raw she was. I had taken one other training course prior but felt like it didn’t really set me up for success. I had reached out to some local injectors in my area looking for any shadowing or learning opportunities they may be willing to share and felt they weren’t very open to new injectors. I’m currently located in Wisconsin so I felt very lucky to find Rana was also fairly close to me! What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? I love that my patients are genuinely happy to see me and come to their appointments! I love seeing their faces light up after a treatment and when I’m able to help them feel more confident or comfortable with something making them feel insecure. I truly love the connections that are made in my treatment room! What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? I would say my advice is not to give up and never stop learning! It’s not the easiest field to break into but it is so rewarding. Make connections with other injectors and never miss the opportunity to learn something new because the industry can change quickly!

  • Where Are They Now? Angela Anderson

    Welcome to "Where Are They Now?", a series that follows the journey of individuals who have attended one of our courses and how they have applied the skills and knowledge gained with us in their professional and personal lives. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we take pride in knowing that our program has had a positive impact on the lives of our attendees. Angela Anderson, BSN, RN Introducing Angela Anderson the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series. Angela 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? I was working full time as a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. When I started becoming interested in aesthetics, I figured it would be helpful to learn more about that world by working in it. So, I made the transition to working in the operating room with plastic surgeons at Northwestern. What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? Being a patient myself! Growing up I was a huge tomboy. The world of beauty didn’t interest me at all, my main concern was being the first pick for the kickball team. In my early 20’s I started having hormonal issues that led me to the hands of an esthetician. After experiencing a huge confidence boost from seeing my issues resolve, I decided I wanted to do the same for others – while still using my degree. That led me to aesthetic nursing! Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? I had a colleague of mine highly recommended Rana. I did my intro course during the heat of the pandemic in November of 2020. With all the uncertainty going on in the world during such a serious time, Rana and her team welcomed everyone with open arms and warm smiles. It was a such breath of fresh air (no pun intended) being able to laugh while learning about what the aesthetic world has to offer. The Confidence Lab is so inviting, supportive, and free of judgement & I think that is what continues to draw me back. What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? I love that there is always something to learn. I’ve noticed that in my nursing career I hate being stagnant. The world of aesthetics is always evolving with SO many different realms of learning. I love that I will be a forever student – I’m a firm believer that there is always room for improvement. What are you doing now? I am currently full time in school pursuing my MSN – FNP. I also work as needed at a surgery center and am working a side hustle in aesthetic medicine! I am my own independent provider at Advancing Aesthetics Suites. I work under a clinical director, but I am my own boss. After taking an introductory course it was hard to find a job without experience. This gives me the opportunity to use the skills I learned, gain experience, and still learn from the mentorship of my clinical director. I am always looking to provide the best care and outcomes to my patients, so I continue to invest in myself with education. It has really paid off. What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? If this is something you are truly passionate about, don’t doubt that you will get to where you want to be. I took my introductory aesthetics class back in 2020 and didn’t get to actively start practicing till Oct of 2023. Don’t let interviews that fall through discourage you. Stay consistent, find ways to continue to learn on a budget (social media, Patreon), network, VOLUNTEER TO BE A MODEL AT TRAININGS – not only do you get to experience these treatments firsthand, but you also get to sit in and listen to the plethora of knowledge these providers have. When there is a will there is way!

  • The Hiring Process

    Your team embodies the identity and face of your practice, and deciding to bring in a new team member involves a series of important choices. Adding someone new to your practice always comes with its share of challenges. It's crucial to keep your current team happy and ensure that everyone is aligned with the practice's mission and values and the preparedness of orientating and supporting a new staff member. The current hiring climate hasn't been favorable mostly with low unemployment rates and its been tough because many people prefer working remotely or find it difficult to dress up and come to the office for an early morning start at 9 am after pandemic sloppiness. I'm truly grateful for our management and administration team because I know there's a lot of subpar candidates out there. Trust me, I've interviewed some of them and have been shocked by their lack of manners, professionalism, and initiative. The front desk role, which is the first point of contact for our practice, has proven to be a particularly challenging position to fill. We have never been short just dont have that star part time member on my wish list. We're always on the lookout for the next exceptional addition welcoming face to our team. Shifting gears to the process of adding an injector to the team, this comes with even greater precaution. The existing team might view the new member as a potential rival or as a new colleague. Despite your best efforts to plan things out, outcomes remain uncertain – and that's just the nature of human behavior, especially among women (haha). A recent example of this is the nine-month-long interview process I have conducted for an injector. Yes, you read that correctly – nine months. This meticulous approach reflects my deep commitment. Adding an injector to our team is a substantial decision that can't be made lightly based on a resume and polished appearance alone. This thorough interview process begins with observing the candidate, discreetly checking references, having one-on-one coffee meetings with me, involving my manager, and eventually having a selected staff member assess compatibility and cultural fit in our practice on my behalf. The choice of this staff member is crucial – they need to be dedicated to the team as a whole, rather than just focusing on themselves. Then comes the working interview, which often generates some anxiety for the injector being interviewed. While I try to keep things light, my primary focus goes beyond evaluating their injection technique. I pay close attention to how they interact with patients. While injection skills can be learned and improved, refining qualities like manners, composure, appearance, and communication is a more complex endeavor. After these months and you have identified the best candidate, extending a formal offer comes with a clear understanding of the employee handbook before signing the dotted line. I find in other practices this is often given after they have signed. For me this is BEFORE they sign!  Once accepted then its the preparedness for onboarding so they are integrated smoothly into the success of the practice with regular one-on-one meetings for check ins. Now if they don't accept, that long process of interviewing is still a positive and beneficual one. You have made a connection, and you never know what will circle back around in the future or who they will refer your way. And in the background of all of this I have already started the long interview process of the next best fit. Preparedness is business. I hope you enjoyed this little blog post on the hiring process, with Love, Rana

  • Where Are They Now? Angeline DeiSanti

    Welcome to "Where Are They Now?", a series that follows the journey of individuals who have attended one of our courses and how they have applied the skills and knowledge gained with us in their professional and personal lives. We believe that learning is a lifelong journey, and we take pride in knowing that our program has had a positive impact on the lives of our attendees. 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.
