injector mentoring

injector mentoring

background

The quality of injectors in Australia is generally very high and it's estimated that around 75% are registered nurses or nurse prescribers. Unlike the UK, only medical professionals can inject which is a good thing!

But it's important to acknowledge that we have minimal training, a lack of formal qualifications to inject and there could be some  regulatory changes on the horizon soon.

the market

The Australian market is shaped by the large chain clinics, competition is fierce, prices are often low and the market is rapidly evolving. If injectors don't continually up-skill, challenge themselves and seek out new knowledge, they will quickly fall behind.

 

In contrast, the hungrier and more open minded injectors who change with the times will be able to cater to the needs of every patient demographic and will likely dominate the market.

the reality

It's a lonely world and even successful injectors in busy clinics can feel very isolated. It can be difficult to progress or do more advanced treatments when balancing making a living and not doing things that are out of your comfort zone or are riskier.

 

Most injectors would like a safe place to discuss their weaknesses but are scared of voicing this in fear of being seen as 'not good enough'.

do i need mentoring?

Everyone needs a mentor. A mentor is a teacher and confidant who you can trust in the professional environment. But a mentor isn't your friend and so they will also tell you truthfully where you stand if things need improving. Occasionally some harsh truths in a constructive way are necessary to show you the bigger picture and for you to grow stronger.

 

Everyone's situation will be different but candidates who might seek Dr Jake's mentoring include:

- injectors who feel that their training missed things out or that they aren't fully sure about certain techniques

- injectors who get nervous injecting or who lack confidence for whatever reason

- injectors who've been on maternity leave and who feel a bit lost back at work

- injectors who feel like they've hit a wall or who aren't progressing

- injectors who are competent with the basics but need some support in doing more advanced areas

- injectors who want to master their craft and be confident delivering total face treatments

what happens on the day?

This is really up to you. When you book for a mentoring session, we'll first arrange a zoom meeting to assess where you're at, your type of patients, what your not so good at and try to focus in on what you'll most benefit from. It's best to be brutally honest with yourself and think about your last years injecting. Ask yourself:

 

- what have I really struggled with?

what do I avoid injecting?

- what problems have I encountered?

- do I get difficult consultations frequently?

- have I had unhappy patients?

- how many complaints have I had?

- have I had many complications?

As some examples, you might decide to use your session for:

Dr Jake to observe and assist you on a normal day in your clinic with your own patients booked in. You'll be observed on how you prepare your room and equipment, your sterility, how you consult, how you assess faces, how well you communicate with your patients and of course, how you inject.

Others might prefer more specific help such as getting more confidence in doing full face treatments and using larger volumes of filler. You would source an appropriate model in advance to inject alongside Dr Jake and aim to improve how to assess your model, plan out a full face treatment and inject with confidence

what's provided and what does it cost?

To keep your costs down, you should charge your model for any stock used on the day. This will be supplied by Dr Jake from the Allergan range. This keeps your models costs low and will makes it easier to arrange models.

- depending on how long you want to spend being mentored, there are two main price tiers:

4 hours = $1500

8 hours = $2750
