Camille Thomas (aka Milla)


David
Hello lady with the flawless skin, you got your lasers plugged in? 
 
Milla
Always plugged in and ready to go!

David
Laser is an absolute amazing break through in technology, what occurred for you to evolve into opening a treatment boutique, where one comes to rejuvenate their skin imperfections?
 
Milla
I went to school for music theater, ended up falling into makeup which has lead me to where I am now.  Doing makeup, I fell in love with skin, decided to educate myself and began to position myself for what I am doing now.

David
How do you handle clients that are not realistic with their expectations with the outcome of what the lasers can accomplish for their skin?
 
Milla
Communication is KEY!!  During the consultation I am nothing but honest about what I can and cannot do.


David
People come into your boutique everyday with expectations of you making their skin look flawless. Knowing that, does it create pressure on you?

Best skin product around!!



 

Milla
I LOVE what I do!  I want clients to leave with flawless skin...for some we have to work our way towards that but for all of my clients that is Always the goal!
 
David
Have you ever had to turn away a client ? If so, what would be some of the reasons someone is not a good candidate for skin treatments?
 
Milla
No, I never have had to turn anyone away.  I may have to make changes, postpone and/or suggest additional therapy to coincide with the treatments I deliver, but never have I had to turn anyone away.
 
David
What would you tell someone that has always wanted to experience having laser but is fearful of something going wrong?

 
Milla
The anticipation is FAR worse than the actual treatment.  It is such a quick process (for most of the various laser treatments we offer) that you have to think of the long term goal.  I am qualified and practiced in what I do and the client has to trust me in that.


David
Can you share any stories of clients where their life was been altered in a epic proportion of confidence and lifted self esteem after having laser treatments?
 
Milla
I definitely have clients whose skin has been changed due to consistent care and corrective treatments for their skin.  If you feel good about the skin you are in then that truly affects your life.
 
David
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
 
Milla
Clients who are happy with their results!

David
If you weren't a skin specialist, what else do you think you would have been doing?
 
Milla
Singing or acting on some stage or platform of some sort...or maybe I would've become a chef!
 
David
What advice do you have for anyone interested in becoming a skin specialist?
 
Milla -You should really love skin care and people if you want to be a skin specialist.  The clients trust us to help with issues concerning their skin and can at times be deeply affected by those particular issues.  We need to be committed to helping them!
