“Not only that aesthetics is new to Botswana, but very few people are practicing it as well. So I wanted to be hired by somebody, and unfortunately, nobody was hiring aesthetics doctors. So it pushed me to start Medi-Glow Aesthetics, Botswana,” she said

Dr. Wedu employs hard-to-find items. “What appears on your skin at times is a reflection of what is going on internally.” It could be stress, in which case counseling or nutritional supplements are required; my assessment can assist establish what is required for you, not simply skin therapy.”
