My facelift – Antonia’s Story
“As a long standing patient of Look Lovely London – and well into my 40s, I’ve been receiving small amounts of filler around the smile lines and regular anti wrinkle injections for a few years now. I noticed more recently that there has been a real, and not so subtle change in the position of my facial structures. My jowls have become more pronounced, and my cheeks and temples more sunken. I just felt I looked tired no matter how well I slept and had lost a bit of sparkle and confidence in my looks.
I was recommended by the amazing front of house team to see Dr Nick. After an in-depth consultation he suggested that I undergo the FaceLift treatment with dermal filler. He assured me it would provide lifting and recontouring without adding lots of volume – which was music to my ears as it was a concern of mine, and have seen in the media and through some friends that poorly placed filler can definitely make you look puffy. I wanted the transition of my face before and after treatment to be seamless and discreet and I was not disappointed.
I had a total of 5ml of Hyaluronic Acid placed – 2mls across the cheeks and 2mls across the jaw. A 5th ml was used to treat my sunken temples. I can’t say the treatment was completely painless but it was a fraction of what I had expected. It is nothing more than the ‘sharp scratch’ that Dr Nick described.
Dr Nick is obviously highly skilled and confident in his placement of hyaluronic acid and the treatment was completed in a flash – something I really appreciated as I don’t love needles and had been a little apprehensive about the procedure.
Results were immediate and continued to get better over the following weeks. That’s not to say they were more obvious, but the hyaluronic seemed to blend perfectly with my face and the skin appeared lovely and hydrated.
Since treatment, those who are closest to me and see me regularly had noticed the change (lots of ‘My God you look lovely today!!) but not once was I asked if I’d had surgery.
My husband hasn’t stopped complementing how great I look and I feel that my face is fresher than ever. I was concerned that the filler would make my face feel hard but it hasn’t. For the adjustment period of two weeks after treatment, the areas of injection were a little firmer but soon the treated areas felt like the rest of my face. I was lucky enough for treatment to result in no bruising or swelling although it had been explained to me that this can sometimes happen.
At the time if writing this it has been 3 months since placement of the injections and the result is just as beautiful as when it was first completed. I will have no hesitation to have this treatment when recommended and in accordance with when the filler starts to naturally dissolve – I’m told I will notice a change in my structures again when this has happened. I will also have no hesitation in recommending this treatment to my friends – those of which I can trust to keep my secret as results are so natural that I truly feel like its my face.
