The majority of my client group say they do not want anyone to notice they have had an aesthetic treatment. Often people feel intimidated at the prospect of anti-wrinkle injections or fillers looking too obvious. So the question begs...can you achieve subtle, natural-looking results? Can you get aesthetic treatments without looking “plastic”?
The simple answer is yes.
When an aesthetic treatment is done well, it doesn’t look “done”. You can still raise your eyebrows; you can still get enough crinkle to have smiling eyes; you don’t have to have those infamous “chipmunk cheeks” or “trout pouts”. Having no lines on your face does not necessarily make you look younger. Just look at a baby’s face...when they smile, they have little lines.
There is an art to injecting muscle relaxers and dermal fillers. More is not always better. You really want to allow some movement and restore natural curves. Like everything in life: moderation is key!
Most clients don’t want to look 10-15 years younger. In fact, research has found that only 20% of women would choose to look 5 years younger, with a preference for subtle-looking results. They want to look in the mirror and not feel that their face looks tired or angry, especially when they’re not. In reality, they want to look as good as possible for their age; to put their best face forward.
The results achieved with good aesthetic treatments are subtle, but they make such a difference; not only to overall physical appearance, but also to self-confidence.
There are so many options available to help you look your very best. Whether it be anti-wrinkle injections, dermal filler, a vampire facial or tightening and lifting using ultrasound energy...which one, or ones, are suitable for you will depend on your treatment goals and best determined following a consultation during which together we will develop a bespoke facial rejuvenation plan especially for you.

It looks at a group of real women in their 50s and has them use technology to “iron out” their wrinkles and discover which wrinkles they would actually choose to keep.
