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.
