EstheClinic was first started in Paris, France more than 20 years ago by the founding doctors – Dr Gerard Boutboul, (Manon’s father) and Dr. Leone, and has since expanded in France and most recently in Asia – Singapore and Hong Kong. Inspired by her father’s passion and vision for EstheClinic to develop technological aesthetic treatments for the face, body, and hair removal as an alternative to surgery, Manon wanted to push forward with that vision further.
In this interview, she talks about entrepreneurship, beauty, feminism, motherhood and more.
where all employees are recognized, feel appreciated, and treated with respect.
TVM: Women in Asian countries are expected to live up to unrealistic beauty standards while at the same time if they decide to indulge in self-care, they can be quickly labelled as too self-involved or selfish. How do we find that sweet spot where we are celebrated for who we are, flaws and all but also given the space to work on ourselves and indulge in some self-care and self-love?
Manon: Pampering ourselves with a spa session, hair treatment, mani-pedi, or any kind of beauty service is a way for us to relax and have fun. Many men and women feel more confident when they are in control. At EstheClinic, we do believe that helping someone to soothe their concerns will help her to achieve sustainable self-love and body-positive mindset. When someone is dissatisfied with something in their physical appearance, beauticians and cosmetologists may alter or remodel a client’s unwanted features. When that dissatisfaction turns into an asset, one’s confidence and self-esteem may build up.
