Today we’d like to introduce you to Elena Budagyan.
Elena, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have been a Primary Care Physician Assistant for nine years, but I have always had a passion for Dermatology and Aesthetics. For the past several years, I would research all the products that help against anti-aging and correcting the face, including Dermal fillers, Neurotoxins, Lasers, PDO threads, Facials, skin care products, etc. As a Physician Assistant in Primary care, I had completed training courses in neurotoxins and dermal fillers. Still, it was not enough to get hired in Aesthetics clinics or Medical Spas. I knew what my abilities were and I wasn’t able to prove it to the employer since I was doing Primary Care for so long. This is when I decided to take things to a different level. Last year, I teamed up with my Medical Director and we created Hush LA Medspa in the heart of Hollywood, CA. I have a burning passion for Aesthetic Medicine and decided to move on from Primary care. By combining my background in Primary care medicine and Aesthetics, I was able to understand better the aging process and how to slow it down. My dream finally came to life and now I am doing what I love. Of course, it was not an easy journey, but my family’s support, especially my husband’s, was what made me work harder.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Just like any new challenge, I had to deal with a lot of struggles. Until now, I still deal with bumps in the road, but I don’t let it stop me. I learn from mistakes and experiences. I understand each situation and try not to allow it to happen again. The majority of the struggle in this industry is competition. I have had other medical spas copy and use pictures from my page and even pictures from inside the spa. I guess it’s all part of the game.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Hush LA Medspa was created to enhance one’s beauty without significant notice. This means, our treatments are specially designed for each client to not have the overfilled, “duck-face” look. We have a wide range of services, including Neurotoxins such as Botox and Jeuveau, Dermal fillers for lips, under eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds, etc. PDO threads, which are used for midface lift, fixing an asymmetric jawline, improving jowling of the face, crepey skin in the neck, non-surgical nose corrections and lifts, etc. We also have Allergan’s newest device called the Dermalinfusion, which has a diamond tip and exfoliates, extracts, and infuses your skin, leaving you with a beautiful glow. All the products that are extracted from the face or body are gathered in a small waste jar and our client’s love to see what comes out in that jar.
We also offer Microneedling and the famous Vampire facial. The Vampire facial uses your very own plasma to rejuvenate the skin, get rid of scars, fine lines and wrinkles and leaves your face glowing. We have PRP injections for the hair, which allows better hair growth in men and women. We offer eyebrow and lip microblading service, as well as lash extensions as well. Last but not least, laser hair removal is one of our popular services and we carry one of the best Laser hair removal machines on the market. All of our products are FDA approved and are in top quality.
What I am most proud of as a company is being able to enhance our client’s beauty by taking in mind their budget. Our prices are probably the best on the market at this point and we don’t plan on changing that anytime soon.
What sets us apart from other Medical Spas is the fact that we are a small business and we do not overbook our clients. Each client has a consultation appointment, with the option to have their service done the same day. We do not rush our clients into the chair and give them ample time to decide if they would like the service done. I take the extra time to follow up with every single client and give them my direct number. I text them or call them and create that bond with them.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I don’t think I would have done anything differently. As much as I can think about it, the way the spa was set up took years of researching, thinking, and planning. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
