Dr Jake - Injector Mentoring


In Australia, any nurse, doctor or dentist can inject - regardless of their skill set or qualifications. The Australian injectables market is also very unique compared to other countries. This is largely due to how the larger chain clinics have dominated the field. They have influenced pricing, our patient expectations and how many injectors are trained and approach their work.


Yet the competition is fierce and things are rapidly changing. New clinics are opening and new toxins and fillers will be introduced to the market. If injectors don't continually up-skill, challenge themselves and seek out new knowledge, they run the risk of being left behind by hungrier and more open-minded injectors. 


It's also difficult to learn or progress when you're also trying to juggle making a living and not putting your patients at risk with new techniques. This is where a lot of injectors get stuck in a rut and many will limit their typical offering to anti-wrinkle treatments, cheek and lip fillers. This is a problem for both the injectors and their patients - treatments aren't tailored to their patients needs and poor outcomes can creep in. At the same time, injectors risk becoming bored of their jobs and burn out can become a real issue.

What does Dr Jake know about mentoring?

Every professional needs ongoing development and no-one is perfect. When Dr Jake was a surgical trainee, every operation he did was observed, scrutinised, graded and documented in an online logbook that he had to present to the surgical college each year. This proved his experience and competency for practical skills that were learnt through hard work,  experience and over time. This type of accountability will probably never exist in facial aesthetic - but the best injectors can choose to differentiate themselves by deliberately seeking out opportunities to be better in everything that they do. 

In 2020, Dr Jake was selected by Allergan Aesthetics to take part in a global mentorship programme under Dr Mauricio De Maio. Over a period of two years, he had to film himself injecting cases, present his work and perform to the highest of standards. His work was compared to 50 other leading doctors from 12 countries. Each injectors videos were watched one at a time and critiqued. Every step was scrutinised including preparation and sterility, accuracy of marking up the face, hand and finger positions, the stability of the needle and cannula work and every 0.05ml of filler used was observed and judged. No one could not hide in the process and it was a humbling experience for every mentee who took part. But in the end, it instilled incredibly high standards and a willingness to always aim to be better. 

Dr Jake wants to give IA Patrons the opportunity to join him in a more relaxed setting and to observe how he works. Here you can ask him anything you like, listen to his discussions with his patients and observe his injecting. He aims to help injectors as a teacher, as a confidant, as a mentor and as someone who you can trust in the professional environment. Whilst shadowing days will be an enjoyable and relaxed experience, being part of the IA Patreon programme will allow you to continually expose yourself to new ideas and to grow.

Things to think about before booking a shadowing session

To get the most out of your shadowing session, it's important to be honest about what your current level is. To help plan the session, have a think about the typical patients that you currently see:


  • Who are they?

  • What demographic are you attracting?

  • Do you treat men too?

  • Does this demographic suit your own aesthetic and skill set? 

  • Do you enjoy working wth these patients?


Then have a think about what you're maybe not so good at and try to clarify what you'll most benefit from in a session being with Dr Jake. It's best to be brutally honest with yourself and think about your last year or two of injecting including:


  • Do you resort to cookie cutter patterns with toxins?

  • Do you stick to doing lip and cheeks because they are easy?

  • What have you struggled with that perhaps now makes you anxious?

  • Are you getting any bad outcomes that you can't easily explain?

  • What areas do you avoid injecting?

  • Do you get frequently find that you have tricky consultations?

  • Do you frequently have unhappy patients?

  • Are you anxious about injecting?

  • Do you feel out of your depth sometimes?

  • Have you had many complications?

  • What have you learnt from your complications to help avoid them again?

There's also the business and professional side of things to consider:

  • How many complaints have you had in the last 12 month?

  • What did you do about these complaints?

  • Do you have frequent issues like patients cancelling last minute, not wanting to pay deposits, etc?

  • What friction points keep cropping up that are making your life difficult?

What a shadowing session might include:

These sessions will be in Dr Jake's clinic with his own patients. Each day will be different and no guarantee can be made for what patients come in for. But you'll definitely see a mixture of:

  • Anti-wrinkle treatments patients (new and returning)

  • Fillers treatments (new and returning)

  • Bio-remodelling patients (new and returning)

  • Fat dissolving patients (new and returning)

  • Ultrasound +/- filler dissolving cases

Things to think about:

The day won't be formal and you can get whatever you want out of it. At 08:30am Dr Jake will meet you before his clinic to have a breakfast meeting (included in the price) to discuss your background, your clinic, your current level and what your needs are. But things to think about might include:

  • See how Dr Jake set's up his room, what needles and syringes he uses, etc

  • Have a look at his booking system and explore how it functions

  • Revise Botox reconstitution, dosing and watch facial assessments and treatments

  • Learn to fine tune consultations and look at Dr Jake's paperwork for each consultation type

  • Understand the purpose and basics of clinical photography

  • Differentiating between a patient's wants vs their needs

  • Understand filler treatment planning, total face treatment planning
