Today we’d like to introduce you to Aileen Castellanos.
Aileen, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started at Ava MD at the front desk and would see patients come in with several skin issues from rosacea to acne and then be consistent with their treatments. This produced such incredible results I became obsessed with the process and with wanting to make someone feel confident in their own skin.
I went to school, passed state board and did several trainings with amazing estheticians to provide elevated treatments and essentially became a sponge collecting knowledge and here we are today, providing the best-customized care to each individual that comes in.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I’ve been lucky that it has but learning in school isn’t the end of it. You need training on everything. Not a lot is self-explanatory so it is never over the learning is 24/7 to be able to provide a certain level of service.
We’d love to hear more about your practice.
I treat patients at a full-service dermatology practice. I’m a clinical esthetician so I’m under MD supervision and advised by a variety of professionals including but not limited to laser nurses, physician assistants, etc. I love and am proud to work together. As a team, we provide patients with the best care. Being able to add a laser if necessary is such a beneficial tool
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Patience and empathy for each individual and their situation. Skincare is a journey and there are things we all want to change or accomplish. I don’t have my own agenda on how to proceed with skincare. I make suggestions and work with you to achieve your skin goals.
