I was quite late getting into the non-surgical cosmetic procedure scene! I turned 40 a couple of years ago and had a lovely party to celebrate. It was Hollywood themed and very glamorous. We had timed our summer holiday so we returned a couple of days before it, this would ensure I had a lovely natural tan, no orange ankles or streaks for me!
I had a photographer for the night & it wasn’t until I saw the photos that I realised I needed help! I was so wrinkly, I just looked old. A month after my party, I was booked in to have anti-wrinkle injections & filler. I went to a clinic that a friend had recommended as I didn’t have a clue where to go; there was no The Beauty Review website then!
I was very nervous on the day of my treatments but felt reassured that I had chosen a reputable clinic.
I had anti-wrinkle injections in 3 areas, frown, forehead & around the eyes.
I had filler in the deep lines running from my nose to the corner of my mouth (official name is nasolabial folds)
I instantly looked a lot younger, it was a revelation! The anti-wrinkle injections took a couple of weeks to take full effect but the filer was instant. I was so pleased with the finished result.
Since my first procedure, I have had quite a few more, including; cheek & lip filler and eyebrow microblading. With every procedure I have had, I found it quite tough to find a reputable clinic; I usually went from recommendations from friends. I have a had couple of non-satisfactory procedures where I haven’t been 100% happy. Now The Beauty Review is available, I feel confident that I will be able to find a practitioner I am fully confident with.
