Enhancing Natural Beauty
In her work as an aesthetic injector, Destiny Garcia takes extra care to create treatment plans that reflect the unique goals of her clients. “Before I begin to pull any products or touch the patient’s face, I sit down with my patient and discuss what they came in for and their aesthetic goals,” she says. “To create a treatment plan for someone, there are many factors you must consider first, such as their ethnicity, gender, age, and so much more. There is no ‘one size fits all’ in aesthetics.” With a detailed understanding of her client’s goals, Garcia formulates personalized plans to help them reach their dream results. “My philosophy is rooted in a passionate commitment to deliver an extraordinary experience,” Garcia explains. “When my patients enter the door, they know they get my undivided attention. I want to genuinely listen to my patient’s concerns, enhance their natural beauty, and create a plan that leaves them walking out with more confidence and self-assurance.”

1. What influenced you to pursue your career?
A combination of factors influenced my decision to pursue a career as an aesthetic injector. The recent burnout I experienced from COVID-19 after graduating pushed me to seek a job that not only allowed me to utilize my medical knowledge but also provided a welcome respite from the hospital. I came across the aesthetic industry, and the idea of helping individuals enhance their natural beauty and regain their self-confidence immediately sparked my interest.
2. What would you consider to be your main strengths?
My biggest strength is being one of the only Spanish-speaking injectors in the area. Throughout my nursing career, the Spanish-speaking population has been tremendously underserved. I am glad that I am the person who can help break the barrier between the aesthetic industry and Spanish-speaking patients.
3. What’s the key to making a great first impression?
I believe the key to making a great first impression is a positive attitude and getting to know your client, not only on a medical basis but also on a personal basis. One of the most important things in my career is the relationship and trust I build with my patients. When a client sits in my chair, the first thing I ask them is how they are doing and how their week was. I want them to know that this is so much more than just a medical treatment. This is a friendship and a bond being built.
4. What is your best advice for clients?
The best advice I can give to any of my clients is DO YOUR RESEARCH! Many people go chasing a sale instead of researching their injector properly. When choosing an injector, you need to ask them questions. What are their credentials? Are they participating in continuous educational courses? Does their work align with your goals? It is crucial to ask the right questions to ensure you make an informed decision.
