Meet Trailblazer Terri Mazaheri

Today we’d like to introduce you to Terri Mazaheri.

Terri, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I am from Iowa and went to nursing school back home. I moved out to Arizona in 1994, to start my career. That’s when I decided that I wanted to do more to help people. The field of plastic surgery and skin was definitely more medical based back then. Over the years, it continued to evolve. It was a long journey, but I honestly feel that many times I was put into the right place to continue to learn about this fascinating career that was still evolving even back then. It took me a lot of years to really feel comfortable and confident in diving into this field and start injecting. Trust yourself. I believe that when you love what you do, then it will start to naturally come to you.

Has it been a smooth road?
Fear keeps us stuck. It’s so imperative to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Especially if you’re careful and conscientious of what you are doing. We should always be learning and finding ways to better ourselves. And continuing to provide the safest treatments for our clients. The biggest obstacle for me was to believe in myself as well as being patient with the process.

We’d love to hear more about Inside Out Aesthetics.
I think it’s not about being the best at what you do because I don’t know if that is realistic. What is real is how you treat and interact with others. Bringing out the best in someone is so much more important. If you are honest and good for people, it starts to show. People start trusting you and in my business, it’s your skin and your face so you want to be careful, go slow, and do your research. Having a team of mentors and people who constantly guide and teach you is crucial. I have been on my own now over the past three years. And I believe that coming to a problem with a solution and an open heart is essential. What sets us apart is we listen, we measure our results, and provide a loving and caring environment for our patients. It’s a scary and vulnerable thing to discuss aging and improving our appearance. It has to come from an honest and loving space.

What’s the most important piece of advice you could give to a young woman just starting her career?
Listen, and be open to change. It’s hard, but once we learn to be vulnerable, it is in that space where we learn the most. Keeping your ego in check and making sure to thank those around you. And to go the extra mile, especially when you’re tired.
