518 340 The RealSelf Team

Imitation is the highest form of flattery. It’s also one of the shortcuts to mastery. One of the best ways to learn great tactics for Instagram is to take note of how successful practices manage their own Instagram accounts. You should curate a list of inspiring aesthetics accounts by browsing and following the ones you most admire.

To give you a running start, we asked our RealSelf Affiliates to tell us which accounts they love and what makes them so special. Here’s what they had to say, in no particular order.


1. Dr. Nick Slenkovich

Handle: @DenverBodyDoc

Why we love this account: This account showcases what is possible if you have full-time employees dedicated to internal social media, a strategy that is great for large practices with a doctor who is truly personally passionate about social media (which is rare!). His Instagram Stories are fun, educational, and are created and posted by at least a half dozen team members throughout the week. —iScreamSocialMedia, @iScreamSocialMedia
