I graduated in Med School at the age of 25 and started early stationing (while in internship) and attending courses, symposiums and workshops in the Dermatology field. In the beginning of my career I built a solid know-how base from some the best practical courses and congresses around Brazil, externships, stations and working partnerships, well as a good exponentially increasing network. I worked for several hospitals and clinics in Rio, such as Clinicare, Hospital Memorial da Barra, Policlínica, Santa Casa de Misericordia, Fiocruz etc. I directed some (medical spa and dermatology clinics) and also performed as an international lecturer and consultant for the cosmetic industry; launched my own project, starting with a clinic/ private practice_ with associates also in the alternative and aesthetician's fields, with a multidisciplinary approach. It was quite unique and allowed me to develop a lot of management and quality of services' skills. Last, but not the least_ I could then achieve some expertise in formulating and performing minimally invasive procedures, such as injectables and laser/ light-emitted technologies, a variety of implants (different products, depths, techniques) etc. My clinic was later on reconceived into a consultancy concept brand, devoted to innovative formulations and strategic thinking for the cosmetic and medical industry. I keep my independent cosmetic consultancy projects, a private practice, teach at a reputable University, PUC-GO and research on my masters' papers. My experience as a professor relies on teaching for medical graduates (Dermatology, ethics, clinic etc - PUC) and also for a medical aesthetic institution (CBMCE). Having been a Cosmeceuticals /Dermatology consultant for new lines in the Brazilian cosmetic industry brought me many interesting endeavours, such as the phytocosmetic, nanocosmetics and neurocosmetics; from all my previous works in this field, the one I loved the most was an Amazon line of phytocosmetics I introduced into a company. I hope building a nice network in the US and worldwide, to develop new skills and work on areas I never had time or chance before.
