For those of you who haven’t yet met our Cosmetic Nurse Brittany Fenwick, we thought you might like to get better acquainted. So, for this week’s blog, we asked Brittany to answer a few questions. Read on to discover more.
Cosmetic Nurse Brittany Fenwick:
Firstly, can you tell us a little bit about your background, qualifications and experience as a cosmetic nurse?
I have a Bachelor of Nursing with experience in Medical, surgical and theatre settings. I’ve also previously worked in appearance medicine here in Nelson administering cosmetic injectables and various skin treatments. enhanceskin has a reputation for putting their client’s needs first and having the client’s best interests at heart. Those values are really important to me. So, when the opportunity came up to join the team, I was over the moon.
What’s it been like joining the team, and what are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I am so delighted to be part of the enhanceskin team. As a company, their approach to skincare and ageing is something I’ve long-admired. I’ve already learned some new and really effective techniques with injectables. These techniques help a little to go a long way, making treatment more affordable. I am really looking forward to learning more new skills and techniques and more importantly meeting my new clients!
What excites you about the industry you work in?
Having the ability to help improve the way someone looks and feels about themselves is such a privilege and is the most rewarding part of my job. Ageing shouldn’t be the cause of diminished confidence and negative thoughts about oneself.
During my consults, I’m fortunate to hear about the lives people have lived and the amazing things they have achieved. These people deserve to feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, age-related remorse is so common, it seems to be the way we are wired. But that’s where appearance medicine can help regain confidence and make ageing feel like the privilege that it is.
How would you describe your bedside manner?
I’ve been told I am approachable, personable and client-orientated. I listen carefully to a client’s concerns and will work with them to develop a tailored plan to achieve their appearance goals. On a practical level and where injecting is concerned, I work as gently and cautiously as possible to minimise discomfort. I understand that needle phobia is a common thing among clients, so, I always ensure plenty of time for treatment.
What services are you currently offering in Nelson & Blenheim?
In both Nelson and Blenheim, I’m currently offering cosmetic botulinum anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers which can be used for so many different ageing concerns.
Also, I’m offering various types of peels and PRP (plasma rich protein) which is an amazing treatment that has some amazing anti-ageing results.
Additionally, I offer dermal needling which promotes the production of new collagen and therefore beautiful skin quality.
Also, Fractora which is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment. This treatment provides improvements to skin tone and texture, wrinkles, scars or discoloured red and brown skin tone.
Finally, I can also help with IPL skin rejuvenation. A treatment which improves the appearance of age spots, red veins, pigmentation, rosacea and overall skin quality.
