We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Megan Davies. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Megan below.
Megan, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Let’s start with the decision of whether to donate a percentage of sales to an organization or cause – we’d love to hear the backstory of how you thought through this.
I am a huge animal lover so I have always felt it was important to donate to animal rescues. In recent years I have found that I have been able to do even more than just give back by creating awareness of the need to adopt versus purchasing a furry friend and also donating supplies. So many people want to do good and just do not know the resources out there. I have made it known that we always accept donations in our office and it is not uncommon for me to have a whole pile of donations in my garage ready for donation. It is so amazing to hear stories of clients who have donated or found a dog through my posts.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers
I first started my business after working for an unethical Chiropractor. I was later on an ABC news “Medical Imposters” series about my whole experience. The chiropractor was fraudulently billing insurance and performing treatments for which she was not licensed. I have always been the opposite of that employer, wanting to make sure I know exactly what I am doing before ever providing the treatment. I decided the only way I could be in complete control of this factor was owning my own business.
Besides Botox for cosmetic purposes, I am also knowledgeable about therapeutic uses for Botox such as migraine management, hyperhidrosis treatment (excessive sweating), and jaw pain due to TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders. I am one of only a few healthcare providers in the area that are considered a Botox Migraine specialist. I offer private trainings in my office to teach other injectors about new techniques and am also Medical Director for 10 other medical spas in the state.
If there is an advanced technique, it is more than likely I know how to do it-safely. You can rest assured that I did not just watch a YouTube video to find out how to perform a procedure. From the start of my career where she spent a year learning before I ever injected anyone, to working for a plastic surgeon learning how to safely inject nose filler, to present day-training with some of the most sought after injectors, I always treats your face as if it were my own.
I am always adding new services to my practice and am trained in procedures such as Sculptra, Ultherapy, Agnes Precision RF, non-surgical PDO threadlifts, sclerotherapy (spider vein treatment), RF microneedling, Kybella, chemical peels, IV therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections and Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) injections. I am also trained in bio-identical hormone replacement and medical weight loss however she I am no longer accepting new clients for these services. I am super excited about adding new services this year including QWO- the first injectable for cellulite. I am a proud member of ISPAN (The International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses) and am a Board Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist.
Where do you think you get most of your clients from?
Referrals have been the best source of business for me. My work is showcased on my clients faces so I think there is no better compliment than when a new client comes in saying “oh my goodness, I saw my friend/sister/co-worker the other day and her skin just looked so great I had to ask her what she was doing”.
Does your business have multiple or supplementary revenue streams (like a ATM machine at a barbershop, etc)?
My business is a lot more complex than a traditional Med Spa because I am also a medical director for many other medical spas and also I have a school called the Academy of Aesthetics. I really love the mentorship component that both medical directorship and trainings provide. As a medical director, I am required to provide policies and procedures to the medical spas and must be available for any concerns that arise. Concerns could be anything from making sure that a new medication is okay to be taking before a client is treated to side effects that could require an intervention or medication. Our school is a combination of new injector trainings as well as advanced techniques such as jawline or under eye filler. We only train licensed professionals such as Nurses and Nurse Practitioners.
