“I’ve always been interested in anti-aging and beauty,” says Dr. Rose, when asked why she got into medical aesthetics. Looking bright-eyed and relaxed, Rose sips tea on our couch as we chat about her ever-changing and growing industry.
“I call myself an injector in my cosmetic practice because that’s what I do – I inject fillers and I inject Botox,” she says proudly. Having seen Dr. Rose’s work – her process, her respect for patient care, and her results – it goes without saying that this is the doctor you want in charge of your anti-aging and cosmetic needs. It isn’t just because she’s so good at what she does, it’s that she cares so much about you, and how the results will affect your overall look, “You need to know the anatomy of the face so you don’t inject the wrong place – know the muscles, the nerves, the blood supply, all those things. That’s where your science bit comes in,” she explains. “After all that, it becomes an art form because you need to look at the face and basically visualize in your mind what would augment her features in a way that is going to be very pleasing, very natural, without looking fake or overdone. That, to me, is the art of injecting well.”
Every appointment starts off with an assessment. As the injector, her job is to know what’s best for each individual client. If she’s meeting a new patient, Dr. Rose listens to their concerns, before introducing them to her approach, asking them to step back and look at the big picture and saying, “I know this bothers you, but I can actually tell you why you have this [issue], which is not because of a particular defect in that area, but somehow it’s connected to the entire face.” This helps patients open their minds to the global take on facial architecture, looking at how subtle movements affect the rest of the face, rather than focusing on just one part.
The best part about Dr. Rose? She’s not looking to “get” you – injections are not everybody’s cup of tea, and Rose is so respectful of that. “Upfront” is the best way to describe Hush’s values. “I always recommend people start off slow before taking the next step or making big decisions,” states Rose.
Hush offers a service of creating a treatment plan for clients; something very difficult to find in medical aesthetics doctors. “Everyone knows having fillers and Botox is a really expensive thing,” says Rose. “Not only that, it’s very scary.” She stresses the importance of assurance, empathy, and openness. To her clients, she always underlines the need to talk about budget and time commitment – how long they’re willing to take to get desired results. Most clients wanting anti-aging treatments, or to acquire a certain look should know that maintenance is required. “These are the things we need to talk about, so moving forward she knows exactly what she’s in for. If she decides it’s not for her, that’s fine, too.”
What's next for Dr. Rose
After the launch of her new branding and website, Rose is excited to be travelling to Asia to visit some family, and work on professional development. “I’ve arranged for one of the top cosmetic doctors in Singapore to give me a few days of learning and training,” she says. Training in Singapore offers a great advantage because people from all parts of Asia are known to travel there for cosmetic procedures, helping Rose increase her understanding of Asian bone structures and facial shapes. She will also be attending the Multi-Specialty Cosmetic Conference in Los Angeles in March.
The growing demand for injectables has produced many injectors in the Greater Vancouver area, but Hush by Dr. Rose stands out to us because it’s tailored to people looking for subtle and natural-looking results.
