“The brand or the type of filler that you’re using, and maybe it’s not even the brand, um, because each brand, like Galderma or Allergan, they have various fillers that have different qualities within their brand lines, if you will.

“We’ll start by introducing myself and giving them my pronouns. So, I’ll be like, “Hi, my name is Jennifer, my pronouns are she/her,” and that will trigger them to say, “Oh, hi, my name is,” and “my pronouns are.” That works quite well.

Because of course, we opened the first laser hair removal clinic in San Francisco, and some of my first patients coming through were trans women. Um, so I would say, at least to me, androgyny […]

“Every time I meet a new patient, and even with those I’ve been treating for over 20 years, it’s crucial for us to come together and reassess.
