A Jersey-based practitioner has become the first in the Channel Islands to obtain a Master of Surgery in Aesthetics degree.
Dr Gertrude Huss (pictured), who owns cosmetic practice Hill Street Clinic, completed this professional qualification in medical aesthetics at University College London and will attend the graduation ceremony in July.
With over 20 years of experience in Facial Aesthetics, Dr Huss offers a range of non-surgical cosmetic procedures from her Jersey-based clinic.
As part of her degree, Dr Huss’s field of study was Minimally-Invasive Aesthetics and she researched and wrote a thesis on contouring the neck and jawline using Botox.
The course also focused on the development of regenerative aesthetics, an emerging branch of regenerative medicine, with procedures aimed at restoring youthful structure and function using the body’s own repair system.
Commenting on her accomplishment, Dr Huss said: “I am immensely proud and honoured to have completed my Master’s in Aesthetics degree. I consider this to be a milestone achievement for me both personally and professionally and I look forward to my graduation ceremony.”
