Today we’d like to introduce you to Ginille Brown.
Hi Ginille, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’m the owner of Ginille Beauty Aesthetics, Ginille Brown. I am a Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner. I have been performing Botox and filler injections since 2013 in Los Angeles.
I attended Stanford for undergraduate training and obtained my nursing credentials from Duke University School of Nursing. Working in aesthetic medicine fell into my lap–I was offered a job as a Cosmetic injector that I wasn’t even seeking and I didn’t know anything about. I completely feel God led me to this and I am forever grateful because I absolutely love what I do.
My passion is to help people feel confident and the freshest version of themselves.
Botox and fillers can be a brand-new, intimidating world for lots of people. I don’t want anyone to feel scared by the prospect of enhancing their beauty. I make sure my patients feel understood and are educated about every procedure. Most importantly, I want people to know that while Botox and fillers are useful tools to help achieve aesthetic goals— they are beautiful without any of this!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
In the beginning I had to learn about this entire world of aesthetic medicine! This education included facial anatomy, understanding the various types of cosmetic injectable products, risks and how to mitigate them, how to inject, facial balancing/harmonization, creating facial highlights and softening shadows. It was a lot to grasp! But I really dove right in. I attended several one-on-one or small group hands-on training. I asked a lot of questions, listened to a lot of lectures, and really worked on understanding my patient’s goals and how to meet them. What kept me going during the times things felt overwhelming was the patients’ joy with feeling refreshed, confident, and even more beautiful after their treatments.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner. I inject Botox and fillers, perform skin treatments, and assist with providing effective skincare regimens to help patients look and feel their most refreshed and beautiful selves. I am a Filipino and Black woman in her mid-30s. There are not many Black and brown providers in the aesthetic medicine industry. I treat diverse women and men who are seeking someone who they can trust with understanding their skin, facial features, and aesthetic goals. I am known for providing natural, impactful results that make my patients look fresh without their friends and family members being able to put their finger on what’s different.
What I find so rewarding about what I do is cultivating long-term friendships with my patients. Some of these patients I have been with since I began injecting in 2013. I have heard their stories throughout the years—successes, challenges, aspirations. I know (and often inject!) their families and friends. We have long chats, laugh/cry together, and really just connect. It is this deep human connection that brings so much life and purpose into what I do. It is this that helps me aspire to continue learning, growing, and developing my skills so that I can serve all of my patients to the absolute best of my ability—helping them to look and feel their best selves always.
Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Dream big and go after your goals. Don’t allow yourself to even be limited by your dreams—you can accomplish more than you even know!
If you are interested in being in Aesthetic medicine, try out some treatments, ask providers for shadowing opportunities, take a job or internship as a medical assistant in an aesthetic practice, attend online or in-person training (there are several free resources that you can take advantage of).
