Wonderful skin, Wonderful you!
I am due to get married in a few weeks so looking my absolute best is at the top of my priorities right now, other than the dress of course. I lost the fat pads in my face very quickly in the past few years and wanted to find ways to replace them.
I was suggested to check out esteticaa.com by a friend. I looked at the website and was quite impressed by all the treatments they do and the excellent reviews. So I called…
The friendly receptionist was very helpful over the phone and gave me lots of information to think about. Cheek augmentations aim to fill out sunken cheeks and change the contour of the face by replacing fat pads that have been lost due to quick weight loss or other age factors.
The Restylane fillers claim to offer a broad range of alternatives tailored for individual needs. All products work to enhance facial features, giving long-lasting, yet non-permanent results. It is targeted at a broad range of treatment areas including the face, neck, décolletage (the area between the neck and breasts) and hands; designed to replenish the hyaluronic acid lost through ageing, hence hydrating the skin and improving its elasticity and tone.
The big leap…..
I was very keen to try this treatment and decided to book myself in. I thought, I am worth it!
On the day, I walk into estetica surrey in Chertsey to find myself in a very glamorous clinic smelling like jasmine. I expected it all to be white and hospital looking, far from it! The lovely receptionist greeted me and I sat in the beautiful reception. I didn’t feel as nervous as I was before I entered the building. It has that calming effect…
Dr Salimi has genuinity about him; he will give his honest professional advice and opinion with the patient’s best interest. As we discussed the areas and what can be done and where, I felt more confident in his work. We decided to do the cheeks to lift my face and give volume and the naso-labial lines around my mouth and nose to give youthful appearance and avoid makeup settling in the creases. I absolutely hated when my foundation sat in the creases.
Numbing cream was applied for me to make it more comfortable, then 15/20 mins later we were ready to start…
Throughout the treatment I was shown one side to compare to the other, the change was instant. There was a definite change in the shape of my cheeks, but most importantly it looked natural, just like it says, Enhancement of natural features.
I was told that there is slight swelling due to the injections and drinking plenty of water keeps it hydrated and last longer due to the hydrophilic particles in the product. (Hydrophilic meaning the product loves water)
It’s amazing how much it has changed how I feel, my confidence has risen in other aspects of my life, and I feel fresher in the morning and throughout the day.
The product lasts approximately 5/6 months but seriously, worth it.
Thank you Dr Salimi and the whole estetica team for making this such a painless calm experience.
My beautiful smile..
My hand shoots in front of my mouth whenever I laugh or smile….
I have always wanted to have whiter teeth. Years of coffee and coloured foods had taken its toll on my poor teeth.
There has been a lot of bad stigma with whitening teeth and horror stories floating online but I decided to take a chance and try it out as estetica has an impressive reputation and essentially very popular via word of mouth.
Last time I attended I was given a small leaflet summarising the zoom whitening and the terms and conditions associated with it. I took it as a sign and booked it online via their website http://www.esteticaa.co.uk/zoom-tuesday
Walking into the chic surgery with soft music playing in the background, I was greeted with a smile and given a consent form to read and sign.
I was called and greeted by a dental nurse who introduced herself as Agnes, smiling, asking how my day has been, and if I’m excited for the treatment, to which I responded “yes I can’t wait!” we both laughed and entered the treatment room. I was again greeted by a lovely dentist, Maryam, who has lovely teeth herself, she was calm and confident.
I then had my dental exam in a lovely soft dental chair, and the zoom whitening treatment went ahead. The TV was on for me at my choice of channel and in between I was checked on to make sure I’m ok and comfortable, to be honest I could fall asleep on this chair.
I had no sensitivity at all! And approximately 45 mins later I was done!
The things were removed and I was given a mirror to have a look at my bright smile. I had gone 9 shades lighter! Amazing!
The post instructions were discussed, strictly no wine or coloured drinks or foods for 24 hours at least and how to use my home whitening kit! Simple!
The treatment was wonderful and with very good results. The dental team were all friendly and welcoming.
Thank you estetica! Finally I can’t stop smiling!
Find out how a scalpel free treatment rejuvenated my skin
Since I had INTRAcel, a non-surgical face lift, I have had the most compliments I have ever had about my skin in my entire life. That is not something you expect at 50.
In the past 4 months I have been subjected to a staggering 69,000 injections in my face with this latest treatment. The cosmetic world has moved on and now it is all about INTRAcel.
How does it work?...
INTRAcel injects radiofrequency heat energy into the deepest layers of the skin via needles as fine as a human hair. It works by creating thousands of microscopic wounds which stimulate tired old skin cells to go into overdrive to produce fresh young collagen. It is claimed to lead to tighter, firmer, brighter skin with small pores. It also said to lift sagging jawlines, soften crow’s feet, fill out acne scars, remove red veins and cure acne as it kills bacteria that cause spots and reduces the activity of oil glands on the skin.
The treatment is not like a pampering facial, there are needles involved, however the atmosphere and professionalism at estetica makes you so calm and relaxed that it does not feel painful.
I met Parisa, the lovely clinician who will be treating me. She’s a pharmacist and member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society with full training in INTRAcel. For the initial consultation we discussed the treatment and the medically prescribed creams I will need to use prior to treatment all carefully selected.
Before treatment I was completely covered in numbing cream. I accidentally licked my lips to then be left with a numb tongue as well as face, but at least I knew I would be numb. Parisa started the micro-needling on my forehead. She switched to deeper needles on my cheek where there is more fat and shallow over the nose where there is more bone. The overall sensation is warmth but when the needles hit the bony areas there is a very brief bearable sharp pain.
The needling took less than half an hour and I was given a special cooling mask to place on my face for 15 mins.
Afterwards my face was very red with small droplets of blood under the skin. I am strictly not allowed to wear makeup but I had my big glasses to cover up.
As the redness started to fade I developed tiny scabs on my cheeks which I was informed would happen at the site where the needles entered. No pain No gain!
The next day I developed tiny bruises under my eyes. Parisa did warn me that a brief attack of acne may be a rare side effect but thankfully I did not get that.
The skin around my eyes look fresher and it took 5 days for my skin to completely heal again.
For this session I am quite nervous, but it is recommended for best results. This time things are very different. The redness faded in a few hours and I developed minimal scabs. The pain was much less as I knew what to expect more. My skin is much brighter, clearer and my jawline has tightened.
Third and last session……
This time the treatment was easy, I went a little bit pink, a few minute speckles of blood and barely there scabs which disappeared after a few days.
My eyes have improved a considerable amount, my cheeks look fuller, my jawline tighter, my nose to mouth line is softer. Everything is lifted in my face.
My skin is glowing and my pores are much tighter giving a smooth appearance. Make up sits effortlessly on my skin now.
Results are so natural no one will know you had treatment however the compliments are guaranteed.
It is a small price to pay for such amazing results.
Thank you to the estetica team and Parisa for her professional care.
Say goodbye to excessive sweating
This changed my life…
I decided one day that I have had enough of having to be careful what to wear, what material and colour! Limited choices and restrictions was taking up too much precious time. I had been trying numerous ways to stop this excessive sweating for years. Nothing worked!
Hyperhidrosis was the answer! I searched clinics in Surrey but nothing grabbed me like this one did, it was different.
Estetica in Chertsey…
As you walk in, you instantly feel welcome. The décor design is beautiful, the staff are friendly and smiley, it even smells lovely.
I sat down in the comfy chair and awaited my turn reading trendy magazines.
My name was called and was walked in by one of the nurses who introduced herself as Zita, with a smile. I felt at ease as I was talking to her, already felt like a special experience, I knew I was in the right place.
Dr Sina Salimi, smiled and shook my hand, professional and calm. All the way through the clinic you felt comfortable. I sat down in the super soft dental chair and as I looked around I could see countless certificates on the wall. I could not help but notice the stunning aviator chair in his room. Very chic!
As the treatment went ahead, I was applied some numbing cream to lessen the pricking of the needle going in, this took approximately 15 mins to get to full effect. Each stage was explained and what was about to happen to make sure I was ready. The mixing of the products was done just behind me, which he clarified, I asked why that is. He responded, “It is not nice for patients to see the needle, this helps keep a calm environment for nervous patients” which made perfect sense.
Everything was thought out to keep in mind the patient and their comfort, otherwise known as Holistic care.
Zita offered me a stress ball or to hold her hand, but I opted to brave it out.
The treatment was painless! All I felt was a small scratch otherwise went perfectly and before I knew it, it was done. What was I so nervous about!? I was given aftercare to follow, a shiny professional leaflet to take home. Everything I needed to know was explained and when to expect the product to work. Some people take a few days others can take up to a week as everyone responds differently. I was given a wet wipe and mirror to dab the areas. The treatment left some small bumps but these go down in half an hour. A few bumps are so worth the results!
The next few days…..
I did not see immediate effect of the treatment, which I knew already. By day 3 I suddenly saw the amazing results! I was not sweating at all and I LOVED IT. My clothes were not getting sweat patches like they used to and I can now wear whatever I like without having to think twice about it. It really is quite liberating.
