  • My Biggest Secret for New and Seasoned Aesthetic Providers

    Cristina Herman one of our experienced expert trainers at The Confidence Lab provides insightful advice for new and seasoned aesthetic providers. The art of becoming successful as a new or seasoned aesthetic provider cannot be done overnight. Self-awareness is the secret recipe to success. It allows you to identify your weaknesses that you can either let define you or realize that you have room for growth. It is ok to make mistakes, receive criticism and turn that into being a stronger and confident provider. My biggest secret? I selfishly want to be the best in order to bring the best for my patients and fellow peers. But lets face a hard truth, being the best, especially in the aesthetic field is not realistic. Why? We are a rapidly growing field with constant new advancements. However, I can promise one thing, my forever goal is to be your lighthouse of knowledge for skincare, facial injectables, complications, techniques and many more to be continued. So how can you strive be the best? With continuing education so if you think you’ve learned it all, you are WRONG!” Let me share with you why this is important. I’m proud to announce that at The Confidence Lab I have participated in 84 training sessions involving customized, group, and advanced trainings. Before each training session I review educational content such as a Patreon, an aesthetic podcast, or a journal article to ensure I am always bringing the newest and most up to date information to peers choosing The Confidence Lab for training. I have six years of experience in the field and each day I know there is an opportunity to learn more. Remember, BE A SPONGE and absorb the education around you! The Confidence Bar and myself look forward to seeing fellow peers in September at the Canadian Aesthetics Expo. How exciting to meet with like-minded providers who want to learn unceasingly and bring the best back to their own practice. Your incredible aesthetic journey is based off the success of being eager to learn. Where should we plan on going next?

  • Where Are They Now? Alice Tudor

    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. Alice Tudor, APRN Introducing Alice Tudor the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Alice took part in a Accredited Hands-On Customized Half-Day training with Cristina Herman on Mar 04, 2023. Here is the Instagram reel from the training. What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? I am an advanced practice registered nurse specializing in anesthesia – a CRNA. Even though I continue providing anesthesia in multiple hospitals and surgery centers all over the Chicagoland area, in 2020, I was able to open my own anesthesia company. This gave me the control over my schedule and the flexibility to focus on my passion for skincare and aesthetics. Ultimately, my own aesthetic practice, The Art of Beauty was born in 2022. What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? I love science and art! I incorporate my extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology from my anesthesia training with my keen eye and attention to details, shapes, forms, colors. In the field of aesthetics, I can create, mold, shape and enhance each person’s physical beauty. The artist in me was reborn and I loved it! Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? The Confidence Bar provides exceptional education in small, intimate classes. I wanted hands on training with aesthetic experts that are local to my area. I read about Rana Kenelly’s journey, her mission, her drive and I was so moved by her statement “Community over Competition”. People from across United States travel to train at the Confidence Bar. Without a doubt I knew I was acquiring the clinical skills that would make me an excellent provider. That is why I keep coming back for more advanced, customized training. What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? My favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics is supporting entrepreneurial forward women achieve their goals. I am a problem solver. I believe there is always a solution for every obstacle or roadblock. Peer Aesthetics bridges the gap in your aesthetic journey from the period of basic training to either owning your own practice or having enough experience to be employed at a reputable med spa. Train at the Confidence Bar and come work at Peer Aesthetics! What are you doing now? I am currently the owner of my own medical aesthetic practice, The Art of Beauty, and co-owner of Peer Aesthetics. I wanted to take Rana Kennelly’s phrase “Community over Competition” and turn it into reality. This is how Peer Aesthetics was born and is opening this summer. It is a co-working space where injectors can safely practice and build their business in a supportive environment. Different tiers of membership packages will be offered, from memberships supporting new injectors breaking into the aesthetic industry and building their clientele, to memberships for seasoned injectors looking for mentorship on expanding their business. I eliminated the three most significant barriers in this industry: not having a medical director, not having the financial funds to start your own practice, not having enough experience to be hired in a medspa. Fully furnished treatment rooms can be rented hourly, daily or monthly. Mentorship in branding, marketing, legal compliance, taxes and much more is available. Above all else, members will have the ability to network with various people in the beauty industry such as make-up artists, hair stylists, nail artists, medical licensed aestheticians, laser technicians and other professionals. What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? Find your niche! What will make you stand out as an aesthetic provider? Have a clear vision of what is your end goal in aesthetics and map up a plan how you will get there. Above all fight for your dreams! You will hear a lot of NO before you hear that ultimate YES.

  • Lamija Hubjer from Refugee to Aesthetics

    Allow us to introduce Lamija, a vital member of The Confidence Lab's education team. Lamija brings a wealth of expertise as a board-certified Physician Associate (PA) since 2009, transitioning from a hospital setting to medical aesthetics. Lamija's journey to America as a refugee from Bosnia adds a unique and valuable perspective to her work. Her personal experience fosters resilience, empathy, and a profound understanding of the challenges faced by individuals from diverse backgrounds. Lamija has a nurturing nature in all her interactions with her patients and peers. She approaches every individual with kindness, patience while creating a safe place to listen and be heard. We adore you Lamija. In Lamijas own words ... I am a person who likes to please others and fullfill their needs if at all in my power. Although that seems like a great quality in an individual, it can be a burden if you find you have this attribute. I name this quality “true kindness,” you know the one that comes from every fiber of your being. To those who know me, I am the “I am sorry” poster child. The “I am sorry” is not an apology but a statement of understanding and respect. I remember the day my childhood abruptly ended and my eyes opened to “the real” world- the one with pain, sadness and hate. I still consider my self a refugee of war, having spent years looking for safety and a forever home until finding it in the US. I have no resentments or hate for the world and the circumstances which robbed me of my childhood. Instead, I became more understanding, empathetic and considerate of others. I call it my 6th sense. I believe that pain, loss and shock has made me more instinctive and sensitive to the feelings of others. Aesthetic industry is one of those fields in which the provider is not just technically great at performing procedures, but able to discern a patient’s want and need and the driving power behind it. Although I really enjoy injecting and providing safe and effective treatments, what I value the most is the patient-provider interaction. My goal is to not only listen but truly hear the person across from me and to build a mutually trusting relationship. Person to person interaction is not just a transaction, it is a key component of your being and the smallest considerate and kind act can significantly affect one’s life trajectory. Haven’t you had a bad day which suddenly got better just by someone listening or saying something that resonated with you and that slapped you out of the bad day”funk? The only time I get angry is when I see an opportunity for giving kindness missed by others. Sadly, often by choice. To all who cross my path, I promise I am present and I hear you. Thank you for allowing me in and trusting me. “Kindness is loaning someone your strength, instead of reminding them of their weaknesses” - Andy Stanley

  • Where Are They Now? Mary Ligad

    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. Mary Ligad, APRN, CRNA Introducing Mary Ligad as the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Mary took part in a Customized Hands-Training Course Mar 03 2023 with Cristina. Here is an Instagram reel from the training What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? I am a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologist (CRNA). I've been a critical care nurse since 2009 and worked at Duke Hospital in Durham NC. I decided to pursue my masters in anesthesia. I've worked in the operating room & labor and delivery for 5 years as a CRNA. I still give anesthesia 2 days a week. What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? What inspired me to do aesthetics? Oh goodness... Covid, Honestly - haha! But really though, all jokes aside, after working through the height of the pandemic (while pregnant with my son) giving anesthesia to and putting breathing tubes into covid positive patients, I thought briefly, "What the heck am i doing!?" I really had no idea that I would be able to pursue anything outside of giving anesthesia as an ARNP. After seeing a couple of my friends pursue it, I thought, 'If they can do it as CRNAs, why can't I? I've always been really passionate about aesthetics and skin care and the science behind different products and how each of the toxins and fillers work. So, I did my research for the state I live in, and got good training under my belt! I also spent a lot of time in the OR working with different plastic surgeons asking questions and currently work weekly with an oculoplastic surgeon giving anesthesia to patients in his office. I think I realized that I would be able to help people in a different way outside of the OR. That really excited me and pushed me to pursue aesthetics. Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? Honestly, I had just come off of a refresher tox training, and was looking for a filler specific training. I was struggling to find one and through a google search, I saw the confidence lab! I saw Rana's name mentioned, and quickly realized that she was one of the names mentioned in the tox training I had just gone to as one of the best injectors/ businesses to follow! After stalking the confidence bar instagram, I saw how high caliber everyone was there. I thought to myself, " I want to be the best I can be at this new skill i've acquired, why would I not train with the best people to help me achieve my goals?" I was wary at first, thinking I wasn't good enough to be there or to be doing a customized training like I did. After I got to the confidence lab and met everyone, I felt immediately like family and my nerves melted away. I came out of training with SO much more confidence than I have in any training I've done. Best decision I made for myself for sure. What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? My favorite thing about working in aesthetics is educating patients! Really, that's my favorite thing about nursing, educating and debunking myths. I love teaching people about what neurotoxins and fillers do and how each can help them in different ways and how they can work harmoniously together. I'm a science nerd and love to know the whys and hows of things, so I think that really helps me educate people well. What are you doing now? I'm working as an aesthetic injector at a medspa with the oculoplastic surgeon that I work with weekly. We're just opening up and getting started, but I'm really excited about it! What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? JUST DO IT! Don't be afraid to pursue something that could potentially fill your cup and overflow it. I was really really afraid at first and unsure of myself. I am so glad I just put myself out there and was afforded the opportunity that I was. Whether you own your own aesthetics practice or work at a medspa, I think the opportunities for growth and learning are endless! Plus, it's awesome to get to help people in a different way outside of the hospital or clinic.

  • Where Are They Now? Velma Borchard

    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. Velma Borchard, MSN, FNP-BC Introducing Velma Borchard the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Velma taken in couple trainings in The Confidence Lab including a Customized Hands-On Training with Cristina on Jul 22 2022. She has also been a member of Rana Patreon for over 2 years. Here is a link to Velma reel which captures her training at The Confidence Lab. What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? I’ve been a family nurse practitioner focusing in pediatric medicine for nearly 23 years in Corpus Christi, Texas. Prior to becoming a medical provider, I was a RN in Med-Surg care and Emergency Room. I’ve been in the nursing field for 29 years. When putting the math to paper, it sure does seem like a long time; but when you love what you do, it does not “feel” like it! What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? This may seem like a cliché, but I’ve had a dream. I didn’t realize it until an old childhood friend said that my “dream came true” as I am doing medical cosmetic procedures. When I was young, my friends and I would play with my mother’s makeup and pretend that we were “artists”. The phone would ring, and they would answer, “hello, Lighthouse Cosmetics”! I had wanted to be in an industry like this, but my mother felt like it was not an industry that would support a family. My mom is Korean (see photo just above) and with that culture and ideology comes a grind and a future with success. Long story short…pre-med turned into a nursing career as time seemed burdensome for me. As I matured, I became a consumer of aesthetic procedures such as Botox. Quite honestly, I did not know that there was a nursing career to be had in the aesthetic industry. Then again, I was dealing with breastfeeding consultations, developmental milestones, and treating acute illnesses…the polar opposite of the life span to notice a need until I look into the mirror on occasion and notice changes in my face. When I would see my derm for my skin, I would always think that I would love to learn how to inject or do procedures that would help others with similar needs. Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? When you’re new to anything, you are going to do some research (you should at least)! There are all kinds of glam and lux in this industry along with beautiful (sometimes overdone) faces that I felt that I didn’t belong. I didn’t fit the narrative. I actually found Rana on Youtube. I stalked her because she attracted me with her knowledge, soft-spoken voice, gentle hands, her method of teaching was easy to understand, and she looked normal and “down-to-earth”. She has such a great outlook on life! I needed to meet her one day! My goal was to be trained by her. I followed her on IG and sent her a message. I was so touched that she made time to respond to me. I’ve been to the Confidence Lab twice for training and have no problem returning for featured guests on my bucket list. I’ve been a Patreon member of Rana’s since I started two years ago which is anther great educational platform. I have trained with Cristina, Angie, and Abby. What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? In my years of practice, I have heard all types of verbal negativity when it comes to parenting and effects on children and adolescents. Bullying is a hot topic and it does not just come from a classroom situation…it’s found at home. Growing up, in school, I had been bullied because of my Asian eyes. I’m empathic to this. When you have a college student come to see you because she wants lips, she tells me a story that her dad used to tease her and ask, “why don’t you have an upper lip”. If I can help heal her from this, I surely am going to try! I love all things aesthetic…art, interior design and nature. My favorite aspect of working in this field of aesthetics is “healing”. As a medical provider, yes it is rewarding when you heal someone’s pain, help them to recover from illness, or improve a family situation; BUT aesthetics, it is like healing to the nth degree. The parallel of pediatrics and aesthetics is that in peds, we treat all “walks of life”… and it is my philosophy that in treating aesthetic patients, “everyone is deserving”. During the reveal, it gives me great satisfaction and joy to see confidence concrete or someone pain-free in my chair as the patient feels restored, seen, and heard! What are you doing now? I am still working as a pediatric provider and currently have some space in our office that I provide aesthetic care for adult patients called Borchard Aesthetics: an aesthetic boutique offering injectable services, PDO smooth threads, microneedling, microchanneling, PRP/PRPM, hair restoration, Alastin Skincare line, and I use the Clarius ultrasound for assessment. My business philosophies are education, safety, natural beauty, and great outcomes. Summer 2023, I plan to occupy a business space within our building and have been working with a contractor to have my “own” area dedicated to aesthetics only. I am a “one-man-band” at this point. Life is a marathon and not a sprint! I’ve learned to be patient as everything happens for a reason! I continue to take private trainings for proficiency. My first training experience this year was with Nicola Lowrey in San Antonio. I am just blessed that where I am in my career that I can continue to learn especially in a different type of medical industry; more importantly, that whatever I’m doing brings me much fulfillment and joy. What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? Get your ducks in row! Logically build a foundation of safe practice. Just as we were taught in our nursing careers, “CPR/ACLS before hitting the floor”. Have an aesthetic crash cart ready and know how to manage adverse events before anything! Know what you are going to need for this scenario and have them in place before you launch. Look into the best trainings for your budget and your goals, be patient, give yourself grace, offer a hand (community over competition), run your race and stay in your lane, and never stop learning. Keep watering the seeds of knowledge so that you can continue to grow in this field!

  • Where Are They Now? Kelly Pfeiffer

    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. Kelly Pfeiffer, PA-C/RN Introducing Kelly Pfeiffer as the newest addition to our "Where Are They Now?" series brings us great excitement. Kelly took part in a Combined Full Day Hands-Training Course Jan 28 2022 and completed our Novice Facial Filler and Novice Neuromodulator Online Courses. What were you doing before you got into aesthetics? As an RN I worked in cardiac progressive care and cardiology for four and a half years. I decided to pursue a PA degree and moved to Chicago for school. After obtaining my masters in physician assistant studies, I worked in pediatric cardiology and adult congenital disease at the University of Chicago. After a year and a half, I transitioned to orthopedic surgery at Rush where I spent the next five and a half years of my career. What inspired you to pursue a career in aesthetics? My mom. The last thing she said to me was “you are so beautiful.” A few months later after grueling days in the newly onset Covid pandemic, I remember looking in the mirror and thinking “Rhonda, you thought I was beautiful because you had mom goggles on. Because the girl in this mirror looks TIRED.” It made me laugh (but also I immediately started looking into a way for a refresh). I then sought out aesthetic treatments for myself and had a mini revelation. I was actually studying a specialty I didn’t work in and on my own time. I found it fascinating. And when I got my first treatment, I felt refreshed, and more importantly, still myself. I started to see others who had the same experience and realized aesthetics was procedural, autonomous, artistic, creative, and the patients happiness at the end of their treatments made is so fun! Why did you choose The Confidence Lab's training program? When I first started looking into aesthetics, I knew I needed a good foundation and training program. With everything that’s out there, I found myself overwhelmed and confused. I started asking injectors I had been following on Instagram and who I felt matched my approach to patient care and the aesthetic field. Time and time again, the same name came up: Rana Kennelly and The Confidence Bar. So I started doing my research on Rana and her team. Every single one of them seemed genuine, fun, kind, and knowledgeable. But the most impactful reason I chose TCB and what finalized my decision was that their core values aligned with mine: community over competition, patient centered care, and SAFETY always. What is your favorite aspect of working in the field of aesthetics? I love the relationships you build with the patient. I like seeing them love their treatments and feel good. There aren’t many jobs that can instill the happiness that you see with aesthetics in your clients. Also, I like using my creative side along with my advanced degree and anatomy knowledge. What are you doing now? I was recently hired as a full time injector at Fulcrum Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery under Brittony Croasdell and Dr. David Hill. What advice would you give to those considering a career in this field? Know your values. Keep good outcomes and patient care at the center. Because that’s what will drive you to go to extra trainings, read the extra textbooks, watch the modules, do the labs. It’s easy to put in the extra work when you know that that work is what will keep your patients happy and safe while making you better at your craft.

  • Apparel created for people in the aesthetic confidence boosting community

    I am Olivia Kirkpatrick, an Aesthetic Provider at The Confidence Bar. About 6 months ago I created an apparel line for the aesthetic confidence boosting community. No, I am not a fashion designer. No, I am not a stylist, textile designer, or fashion buyer, but I have created some pretty “OK” (play on words, get it? LOL) pieces geared towards the beauty industry or anyone who deals confidence! The long and short... One day I was searching the world wide web for a cute shirt to wear to work and had no luck. Everything I found was too bubbly or too simple. It was apparel I would never wear or purchase. I was SHOCKED no one in our booming industry, full of detail and art, had created a fashionable, elevated, brand appropriate shirt. There was nothing, in my opinion, worthy to wear with scrubs pants, so I said ‘screw it’, I’ll create something. Ergo the birth of OK Apparel. Little did I know, it’s a lot harder than it looks, but SO WORTH IT! My day job, as an Aesthetic Provider, is focused on studying the details and anatomy of a face, fixating on where the light reflects in order to enhance the beauty of the individual, to make them feel their most confident. It’s an art. As injectors we have an artistic flare. This new endeavor and brand has allowed me to tap more into my creativity and learn the ins and outs of running a small business. The lip prints on the shirts are custom, I kissed a sheet of white computer paper with my favorite bold, red lipstick (shout out to one of my best friends, Briana, for the genius idea when I was having a meltdown that I couldn’t find the right lips, LOL) and I created the “kiss” print embroidered on all the apparel. A red pout is feminine, yet daring and powerful, which is precisely what type of person I want wearing this apparel. I want my brand to speak to people who give others the ultimate gift of confidence and conviction. If you are someone who exudes the expression “Confidence Dealer™”, whether you are a cosmetic injector, doctor, nurse, esthetician, designer, makeup artist, cosmetologist, coach, therapist, teacher, mother, friend, partner, etc.etc.... then you are the gift and influence we need most in the world. You can find all my apparel available for purchase on oliviakirkpatrickapparel.com! And you can follow along on my journey at @OK_Apparel_ and @Olivia_Aesthetics_ (Instagram handles). Thus far I have created a buttery soft, embroidered t-shirt, baseball hats (to protect you from the sun. DUH) , and crewneck sweaters. I cannot wait to continue to create for this community! It has been such a pleasant surprise and complete curve ball, but I am leaning into every moment!

  • Challenging Gender Biases in Aging at Modern Beauty Con

    Hosted by Steven and Renata Roddy in Boston. 350 Attendees. Great faculty Whenever I give a presentation I strive to convey key messages and this is an important one! This touch point @modernbeautycon conference was intended to draw attention to the double standard that exists when it comes to aging and facial wrinkles between men and women (see video below) Women are judged negatively and held at higher beauty standards than men. They are expected to have smooth baby skin but males are praised for their lines and wrinkles as signs of wisdom and success. Grrrr! Makes me so mad but as aesthetic providers are we part of the problem …. or part of the solution? What are your thoughts? We must acknowledge these stigmas and make progress towards our societal biases to be more nonjudgmental. PTTP (my new abbreviation - POWER TO THE PUSSY) Wrinkles, your choice 🥰

  • Aesthetic Providers Why Join Patreon? I post every Sunday without fail!

    I am dedicated to ensuring the next generation of aesthetic providers are provided with realistic, straightforward, and safe approaches to assessment, consultation, injecting and treatment. It was a very different climate when I first started in Aesthetics 18 years ago than it is now. We were new to the industry and had to learn through trial and error. There were numerous blunders. Every patient's face served as a training ground for me. I covered up my mistakes rather than learning from them. We were all guilty. Our patients even praised us for delivering subpar results as they also did not know any better. How times have changed! I recall feeling isolated in a new industry with no collaborative network or ongoing education. Back then, there were no conferences and no virtual options and there were definitely no peers that you could confess your sins with. As social media grew, it started to become a place to share ideas on injecting but to me it was not a safe place. I didn't feel at home in a luxury industry full of small waists, perky boobs, and stilettos. I removed any injector videos from social media and moved them to Patreon which became a great place to house injector content behind a pay wall for other injectors. Patreon fosters a secure environment for asking questions and cultivating a community that empowers the upcoming generation of injectors, ensuring that everyone feels included. My objective is to inform fellow providers that there is room for us, even in our casual attire like sweatpants and sneakers. There is space for each one of us. This platform also serves as an excellent meeting point for people from across the nation and around the globe. Start by establishing connections here and developing a network to expand upon. Encourage others to join; there is ample business for all, and our aim is to uplift one another and improve our collective outcomes.
