With great excitement and understandable anxiety, medical aesthetics nurses across Canada have successfully and safely returned to work. In this Blog, colleagues share their experience and reactions from patients. Also, did the COVID-19 lock down have a silver lining?
The College of Nurses of Ontario has kindly honoured my request for verification on policies in regards to the gradual opening of medical aesthetics practice. With CNO’s permission, we are sharing that letter with you.
Yes, we are back! The Government of Ontario has given regulated medical aesthetics professionals the green light to reopen, effective immediately. The announcement comes with guidelines on opening gradually with strict safety measures.
Two timely lectures on post-COVID procedures underline the impressive agenda of medical aesthetics topics in our Professional Development Symposium on June 14. Expert speakers from across the U.S. and Canada will deliver online presentations and interactive discussions.
The COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet, but we are nearing the time when we will be able to go back to work and see patients again. In advance, make sure your services will be as safe as possible. Being ready means being safe!
Clinics may be closed and medical aesthetics injectors may be self-isolating, but the COVID-19 pandemic does not suspend the deep-rooted desire of medical professionals for ongoing education and instruction.
In response to demand for medical aesthetics training while also respecting personal safety during the COVID-19 crisis, THMA Consulting is taking its Foundation Courses online with a comprehensive new package of virtual training courses.
Looking to network online with colleagues? Want to share thoughts with peers about medical aesthetic procedures, patient complications or industry trends? If you are a THMA Consulting member, we have just the place for you!
In lieu of a full Professional Development Symposium on March 29, THMA Consulting is pleased to be hosting an Online Learning Session on that day, and is inviting our client members to attend free of charge.
Meet Dr. Kelley Wright and her husband Michael Peirone, medical aesthetics professionals and competitive bodybuilders who appreciate the merits of top training and high standards. A Q-and-A with a true ‘power couple’!
Two of British Columbia’s most experienced injectors and national leaders in nursing will direct THMA Consulting’s in-depth training in medical aesthetics in Vancouver beginning May 8-11.
THMA Consulting is elated to have official CNA accreditation for the Foundation Courses in our Medical Aesthetics Preceptorship and Training Program. It is truly an honour to be so respectably recognised!
It’s hard to believe my medical aesthetics career began 30 years this month! In reflection, I can credit success to a passion for patient care in this field. But the people who encouraged and supported me at key junctures get my utmost gratitude.
On Wednesdays beginning in January, THMA Consulting will be offering One-on-One Mentoring sessions for Course 3 participants looking to practice and hone their medical aesthetic skills.
Implementing a dress code in the workplace that reflects your brand values is perfectly acceptable, as long as the rules you set are reasonable, practical and would not be considered discrimination.
It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. Kelly Ross, a Nurse Practitioner who recently took our Medical Director/AOA course, asked me to help share information she learned with the nurses she oversees. A great idea. And gratifying to all.
From a workshop on the challenges facing nursing entrepreneurs to an advisory board on a promising new neurotoxin and lessons learned in a cadaver lab. Yes, there was a wealth of knowledge to scoop up in California and bring home to Canada. All for improving patient safety and service!
The popular neurotoxin used to smooth out facial wrinkles is now increasingly in demand for treatment of certain medical conditions. According to sufferers of severe migraines or excessive sweating, a Botox® Therapeutic treatment can be ‘a life saver.’
I am humbled and honoured that Suneva Medical has appointed me to train Canadian nurses and physicians in Bellafill treatments. The long-lasting Bellafill is a must-have in medical aesthetic practices.
What do nurse practitioners and physicians know about the responsibilities of a Medical Director (or Authorizer with Ordering Authority) in medical aesthetics? Probably not much. Even current Directors and Authorizers are unsure of the role. That’s where we come in.
Never have I been prouder of my fellow nurses and our medical aesthetics profession. In the face of a serious threat to our livelihoods from Core Specialists in Ontario, we stood as one and roared back.
Health Canada approval of the DiVa Vaginal Laser is great news for mid-life women who struggle with vaginal health issues and want non-surgical options for resolving intimacy challenges.
This has got to stop. Authorities need to double down to crack down on fraudulent and dangerous practices. And collectively, we need to convince potential patients that ‘good deals from bad apples’ can be devastating.
We are positively thrilled that a second training course at THMA Consulting has received the highest level of approval via the American Nurses Association. It’s a win-win for nurses, too!
The question comes up from time to time: Are the people who come to us for cosmetic procedures referred to as patients or clients? As far as I’m concerned there is no debate.
Consumers are right to ask questions about patient safety following Shoppers Drug Mart’s announcement to open two clinics in Toronto.
A Health Canada consumer advisory about the safety of an unauthorized device should also serve as a warning to aesthetics practitioners. Be careful. Be safe.
I returned home from a meeting of the International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses with more than the usual wealth of information and insight.
We’ve discovered that many Nurse Practitioners are considering a new career in medical aesthetics. And why not?
