She became passionate about beauty entrepreneurship, creating Luxe Beauty and Body Studio and Training Academy. Her business provides over 1,000 certifications to beauty industry entrepreneurs.

The glorification of plastic surgery prevents people from realizing the toll it can take on their bodies post-surgery. The pre and post-operative period is critical for patients to prepare. The risk of infection after surgery is serious. If you don’t take care of your body, you will put yourself in danger.
ENSPIRE talked to Wilson about her business and ways to take care of your body post-surgery.
You became an esthetician after a battle with depression, what caused you to become interested in pursuing skincare and massage therapy?
I was looking into something to help with my confidence and provide independence. Therefore, I ventured into the beauty industry. I could focus on something other than my depression and change my life for the better.
What are some benefits of sticking to a regime of taking care of yourself post-op?
Sticking to the regime helps prevent the reversal of your operation. It will be a waste of money if you don’t take care of yourself post-op.
What are some of the biggest health and safety issues you’ve seen in people who do not take care of themselves after surgery?
Some of the biggest issues I’ve witnessed after surgery are clients developing diabetes because they believe surgery will prevent them from gaining weight or health issues. Surgery does not exclude you from taking better care of your eating and fitness habits.
How are you making people more aware of the toll plastic surgery can have on the body?
I educate my clients on the risk of not taking care of themselves during the healing process. Your body is in a vulnerable state, and you must be mindful of your operational wounds to prevent infections.
What is one piece of advice you would give to people who are thinking about getting plastic surgery?
The most important advice I would give is to do it only for yourselves. If you educate yourself on the process and risk, make sure it’s something you want to do; not for someone else. Surgery won’t fix your internal battles. It’s something you must be mentally prepared for.
Crystal Wilson started her business looking for a way to gain confidence and urges people to understand the effects plastic surgery does on your body. Sticking to a regime is something the mogul finds works best otherwise health issues such as diabetes may arise. Wilson’s goal is to educate people about the challenges in plastic surgery no one is talking about.
