Living La Vida lovely

When we heard that La Vida Aesthetics Clinic offer a range of treatments designed to help their clients look and feel their best, we wanted to know more.

So, we recently sat down with the owner of the clinic, Dr Odille Figueredo, to hear more about the business and hopes for 2024.

Congratulations on your new clinic opening, tell us a bit about your background and why you went the route of opening an aesthetic clinic?

I graduated as a medical doctor from the esteemed University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. I work as a general practitioner with a special interest in psychiatry and emergency medicine. Outside of medicine, it has always been a dream of mine to work in the beauty industry, and when I decided to branch out into aesthetics it was the perfect way to bring the two worlds together.

Combining my expertise in medicine with my newfound passion for aesthetics, I have seamlessly integrated the two realms, offering a unique and holistic approach. Opening my own clinic was a decision deeply rooted in my passion for continuous learning and my commitment to the ever-evolving field of skin aging and aesthetics.

As someone who thrives to on acquiring new knowledge, I’ve dedicated myself to courses, conferences and seminars, and I am currently advancing my expertise through a master’s degree in skin aging and aesthetics.

This journey has not only kept me at the forefront of the lasts developments but has also ignited a desire to create a space where I can apply this wealth of knowledge. By opening my clinic, I saw an opportunity to imprint my unique approach and philosophy onto the world of beauty, offering treatments that reflect the latest scientific advancements and a deep understanding of aesthetic care.

It’s a place where my passion for learning transforms into tangible benefits for my clients, ensuring they receive the most innovative and effective treatments available

How long does a consultation take at the clinic?

Before any treatment is booked, we highly advise a consultation to discuss aesthetic concerns, build rapport, and truly understand the client’s story and reasons behind their decision to pursue a treatment. By gaining insight into the physical and psychological impact of any minimally invasive treatment, we can ensure that the client’s needs and expectations are met the utmost care and consideration.

We love the name La Vida how did you decide on this name?

The name La Vida is Spanish for ‘The Life’. It evokes a sense of vitality, energy and a celebration of life.
