Perspectives in aesthetic nursing: new ones introduced and old ones revisited

02 April 2023
Volume 12 · Issue 3

The Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) that took place recently in London is an exciting reminder of the future in aesthetics, both product- and research-wise. Each exhibitor took pride in their work, and each speaker showed eagerness in helping practitioners refine their skill sets, whether this be medical, technical, or business-related.

But taking a step back from this rapidly growing industry, we should perhaps take a moment to reflect on what the industry means to us. Aesthetics will likely keep playing a fundamental role in this ageing world, but what will it signify to you personally, and to society at large? As nurses, what are some values that keep you grounded? What are some tactics to help you navigate financial challenges, and what are some rules in your practice that you may have overlooked?

In this issue, we celebrate the idea of introducing new ideas in aesthetics, while not forgetting the principles of what it means to be a nurse. Starting with a more clinical topic, you will find Dr. Eugenia Bonelli's piece on incobotulinumtoxinA and its role in the treatment of upper facial lines. Applying aesthetic thinking to real-life scenarios, we delve into the work of Dr. Jennifer Taylor, Dr. Alison Owen and psychology student Corrina McHale, where they reveal qualitative perspectives on the psychology of UK brides. Moving on, doctoral researcher Hector Barbosa Triana introduces recent developments in anti-ageing, while also inviting thoughts on what anti-ageing means to humans on a more philosophical level.
