We had the good fortune of connecting with Gina McLean and Jennifer Martinez we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Gina and Jennifer, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
After years of working with Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons, we found that there was a need for a space like ours. In our office, we married the aesthetics side of medicine in a relaxed setting without the wait time and cookie-cutter environment of traditional medical offices. We focus on patient care, and a personal relationship with our patients that lasts for years. By truly getting to know our patients, their trust is gained.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
This area of medicine has challenges that aren’t typical of other areas. Aesthetic medicine is as much science as art. Having an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, an aesthetic eye, and a sculptors hand is definitely a challenging combination that we continue to master every day. It has taken us over a decade each to master our craft, with continued trainings and education. We believe in safety first, and educating our patients on procedures and treatments that are best for them and their beauty goals. We have learned how to listen to our patients and earn their trust. Most patients become friends. Our brand represents this higher level of expertise in Aesthetic Medicine with natural results, to help our patients age gracefully.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We both love everything this city has to offer. As Miami natives, born and raised, we call Miami home. From lunches in coconut grove, fancy dinners in Brickell or the beach, to weekends in Key Largo, there’s something for everyone. As working moms, we definitely love the community connections in Palmetto Bay and Pinecrest, which is where we live and decided to open our practice. The mix of cultures gives us a diversity of patients and there’s always something to learn from each and every one of them.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
“It takes a village” is the best way to explain how to create a successful business. Our loyal patients are definitely the driving force behind our success. Our business has been built on personal referrals. Our families and friends are another huge contributor to our success with unwavering support, our cheerleaders! We also have found a beautiful partnership with each other, as co-owners, as we work seamlessly together and give 100% to our dream. Lastly, and definitely not least are our employees- a positive work environment with amazing people makes all the difference, day in and day out, we couldn’t do it without them!
