The facial aesthetics industry is at the forefront of mainstream media. Lip filler, thread lifts, and botox are all on the top of the list of things that we think will make us look younger. 

In this episode, facial aesthetics expert Dr Zainab Al-Mukhtar warns us against backstreet clinicians, tells us all about her journey to facial aesthetics, and advocates for a more subtle approach to personal improvements. 

“I realised that my passion and what was really driving me and what gave me butterflies in my tummy was the aesthetic side of dentistry.
