Dr Natasha Moscato has been with The Victorian Cosmetic Institute since the very beginning describing herself as “part of the furniture”. In her time Natasha has seen the introduction of everything from lasers to nurses and even multiple receptionists, things that are now common place in our busy clinics.
Natasha performs pretty much everything except liposuction and thread lifts, her expertise include lasers and injectables. Natasha finds performing anti-wrinkle injections very satisfying “because you can see the results”. Adding that “doing anti-wrinkle injections to peoples frown lines is a standard thing we do because it’s such a refreshing thing to have done and no one can pick it, so it looks really natural.”
Natasha also loves dermal fillers because “results are pretty much straight away and it makes such a difference, it’s like art really.” Natasha describes “playing with faces” as fun because “every face is different, so you wouldn’t necessarily do the same thing on one face that you would do on another” which for Natasha keeps her job interesting.
Natasha has tried most of the treatments offered at The Victorian Cosmetic Institute saying that “I wouldn’t really do something to someone that I haven’t done on myself, I think you need to love something if you’re going to suggest it to other people, I don’t suggest anything that I haven’t done myself or that I wouldn’t have myself.” According to Natasha people are always asking her if she has had anything done and she believes that people don’t necessarily think she has had treatments because the results looks so natural.
Natasha says she relishes being able to help enhance positive feature not only in an anti-ageing way but also in ‘glamourizing’ the face. An example provided by Natasha is to inject anti-wrinkle injections into the jaw line, as it can help slim and enhance ones cheekbones.
Natasha has always been interested in cosmetic medicine although she did work as a general practitioner specialising in women’s health before beginning with The Victorian Cosmetic Institute in 2006. With four children Natasha finds working at The Victorian Cosmetic Institute provides balance in her life because she enjoys it so much.
