Medical Aesthetics: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

There is no fixed blueprint for a human being. We come in all shapes, sizes, colours, and beliefs—which makes everyone beautiful in the most unique way possible. Our identity is formed by diversity, and medical aesthetics is no different.

Given that no two people are 100% alike (and thank goodness, because how boring would that be?), it is highly essential to embrace diversity in the workplace. Having diversity and inclusion in the workplace ensures that a wider variety of ideas and perspectives are integrated into the workflow and that everyone is treated equally. 

When it comes to medical aesthetics, in particular, diversity is indispensable. This is because skin types vary immensely, and having a diverse team of skincare specialists guarantees that each of your patients’ skin conditions is assessed and understood on a more relatable level. 

Let’s talk about the important role that diversity plays in the industry of medical aesthetics. 

It Makes People Feel Seen, Heard, and Valued

This ties in with the point we mentioned earlier. For instance, a darker-skinned female patient may tend to feel more comfortable talking to an aesthetician with a similar background. In other circumstances, an Asian male patient could be more at ease when treated by an Asian doctor. It’s all about relativity and being in the presence of someone who understands you from personal experience. 

This does not imply that people of different races are incapable of treating those with backgrounds that contrast, but being able to relate to one another can be a key element for some individuals.

It Helps Promote Beauty and Wellness In All Its Forms

When encouraging diversity and inclusion in medical aesthetics, you are celebrating the fact that one size does not fit all, from actually having textured skin and body proportions that you don’t usually see on TV or in the magazines. 

People who seek aesthetic services from professionals need to have the freedom to express their beauty and wellness goals without feeling pressured to look exactly like everyone else. If your aesthetics centre is driven by a team that’s diverse, it can contribute to helping patients feel more comfortable with their environment. 

Aside from building a diverse team, it also helps to promote your services and products in a way to speak to a larger audience—an audience wherein everyone looks different from each other, yet unites in terms of wanting healthy and glowing skin.
