Amanda, one of our regular clients, an Accountant from Watford comes to us for Lip Fillers, although this time she visited us conscious of her skin. She had heard about our AlumierMD Chemical Peels and mentioned it her lip filler appointment to see if we could help her.

Amanda’s main concerns were the recent acne breakouts, large pores, and pigmentations. Having suffered from acne myself for over several years and having 5 months of clear skin due to a revolutionary range of chemical peels, AlumierMD products, and chemical peel treatments. As a result, I was super excited to treat Amanda and help her get to her goal of clear skin. 

“I am unable to leave the house without make-up”. 

We always recommend a consultation before having any treatment and saw Amanda for a skin consultation, where we recommended the most suitable AlumierMD home-care products tailored to her skin type and condition.

All the products included special medical ingredients and SPF, which acts as a layer of protection for your skin and will help prevent pigmentation from sun damage and is vital after having any skin treatments such as standard facials; lasers or chemical skin peels as the skin can become more sensitive to sun/light damage.

There was no pressure to buy the products but we recommend for best long-term results. Then the details were personally emailed to Amanda, where she could click on the link and order directly straight to her house. Basically, the products can be purchased directly from the AlumierMD website, as they are medical grade (establishments that operate under a physician's license) and the products can only be purchased from your medical professional outlets.

Our bespoke AlumierMD facials are tailored to each individual client needs and we recommended 3 to 6 sessions for a significant change to the skin. Amanda decided to opt for our Luxury Medical Facial by AlumierMD, which contains Medical Microdermabrasion and two revolutionary skin treatments.

1. Medical Microdermabrasion

For Amanda, we used the Medical Microdermabrasion, a 3 times more powerful than your standard microdermabrasion. The machine uses small crystals that exfoliate dead skin cells helping with blackheads, whiteheads, acne scarring, and fine lines and wrinkles. I particularly love it as it brightens up tired, dull skin and prepares the skin for the chemical skin peel.

2. AlumierMD Face Mask 

Then an enzyme retexturing face mask was applied to the skin for approximately 5 minutes. This contains fruit enzymes and active ingredients, which helps further exfoliate the skin and helps reduce pigmentation. The mask is relaxing and contains calming ingredients, which soothes the skin after the microdermabrasion

3. AlumierMD Chemical Skin Peel

Last but not least, the radiant 10/20 chemical peels were applied to the skin for approximately 15 minutes, it contains salicylic acid which is water soluble so can go through the open pores getting rid of bacteria that is causing acne breakouts. In addition, it contains lactic acid and speeds up this process with further deeper exfoliation, as a result, the pores will be instantly tightened and skin will be glowing. To finish we prepare the skin with recovery balm and SPF is massaged into the skin.  

After the skin has cooled down you see instant results, Amanda’s skin was glowing after the treatment after it was slightly red of course, which would go down after an hour or so similar to waxing.

Amanda said, “The treatment was relaxing. There was no burning, just slightly hot but I am happy with the results after my first treatment.”

We followed up with Amanda a week after her first AlumierMD Chemical Skin Peel and she was feeling great. She said her skin feels much brighter and breakouts are definitely improving and can’t wait to see results as the days go on.

We’re really happy as it gave Amanda the confidence to go out without any make-up. Just take a look at her skin below, it looks flawless.

Lucy's Nasolabial Smile Lines and Lip Filler Experience

Meet Lucy, she came to our practice in Luton for the first time approximately 6 months ago for dermal filler to treat her nasolabial fold lines, also known as smile lines and we wanted to share her results and journey over the months.

Many women come to us for this dermal filler treatment as they find their nasolabial fold lines (smile lines) become more noticeable as they hit their mid 30’s and get saggier and deeper lines.

She had become self-conscious of the lines from her nose to mouth becoming deeper and found her make-up was creasing in her smile lines. In addition, it was difficult to keep it looking smooth and even, as a result, she decided to have lip fillers to give them a little more volume.

The Botox and dermal filler treatments are ideal as a preventative measure, the earlier you treat and frequently review with your practitioner to target these areas the better - the results will last longer and look visually natural. For those of you thinking of smile lines treatment, once you’ve had the initial treatment you will eventually only need a small amount of dermal filler maybe once a year.

Lucy had previously visited a practitioner but wasn’t too happy with the experience and results. “With the previous practitioner I felt really rushed and none of the risks were explained! I felt like I was in and out so quickly and the filler didn’t last as long”.

After her first time with us, she was happy with the results and preferred to build up more filler, for a longer lasting result and the second time we recommended 1ml Juvederm filler in the Nasolabial lines and lips, which restores facial contours and improve signs of ageing.

You should always give yourself enough time for your treatment, we recommend arriving a little earlier, so you have enough time should be given to answer any questions or worries. For example, we advise our clients to arrive a little earlier and we explain the benefits, risks, and process of the treatment during a thorough consultation.

Nasolabial Fold Lines (Smile Lines) & Lip Filler

Prior to Lucy's treatment, an instant numbing cream was applied to both Nasolabial lines and lips to make the treatment more comfortable. During the treatment, the VIBRATA by Dr. Simon Ourian was used to help massage the area and reduce any pain and it’s proven to reduce bruising/swelling post treatment.

A very small amount of filler was carefully injected into the areas creating a smooth and youthful appearance for the Nasolabial lines. Then the Juvederm filler was injected into the lips creating defined borders and a plumped volume. The areas were massaged gently to spread the filler evenly and prevent any lumps. Finally, arnica gel was provided to Lucy to use at home, which will help with the healing process.

The Nasolabial lines (smile lines) and lip filler can last up to 6 to 12 months, with most of our clients coming back at 8 + months. We always recommend keeping these areas topped up regularly for best results, so don’t forget to come back for your reviews where a top up of filler can be given.

Client Feedback

Lucy felt great after her treatment and said “I felt no pain. The VIBRATA is so good, I’ve never had that anywhere else and it makes a massive difference. Wow, I am so happy with the results”.

If you have any questions about Nasolabial filler (smile lines), lip fillers or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.

Nikki's Story: Smile Line Filler Treatment

Due to the recent stories shared in documentaries about aesthetic treatments going horribly wrong, we’ve decided to let you in the secret world of aesthetics and share the process live with our clients. The series of blog posts and Instagram live streams should help you to know when you’re in safe hands or not, wherever you are in the UK. If you missed out, last week we shared Claire’s experience of lip filler and gummy smile treatment; and this week we are sharing Nikki’s experience with our smile line filler treatment.

We recently met the lovely Nikki, a Fitness Manager, who came to see us all the way from Northampton. Nikki wasn’t sure what to expect as it was the first time she was having the Nasolabial Filler, also known as ‘smile line fillers.’ Although she did mention she had previously had Botox, but a few years ago and never experienced any treatment with dermal filler, which is different to Botox.

Meet Nikki (Before Smile Line Fillers)

Meet Nikki (Before Smile Line Fillers)

As always we carried out a thorough consultation, where we explained the benefits, risks and process of this treatment as we did with Claire’s treatment in the previous blog post. During the consultation, Nikki explained she wanted to feel and look better especially as she works long hours as a manager facing people daily, and was becoming more conscious of her appearance and lines developing around her mouth over time.

If you’re experiencing the same and wondering why this happens over time, well, the volume is lost over time due to factors such as age, stress and even exercise. Juvederm Filler is used to naturally replace the volume. This filler contains hyaluronic acid which naturally plumps up the skin aiding you to look more youthful. This particular type of filler can last 6 to 12 months. Although, as Nikki exercises regularly due to her long hours as a Fitness Manager, we pre-warned her that the filler might not last as long as other clients due to the filler breaking down quickly as the body metabolises.

Nikki was now aware she may need to come back for more regular top ups to maintain her full and youthful appearance and was still happy to go ahead.

 
 

As always before we started we used instant numbing and used the world-renowned VIBRATA by Dr. Simon Ourian, which reduces not only the pain but swelling and bruising around the nose and mouth. We proceeded with Juvederm Ultra 3 1ml Filler, which contains natural hyaluronic acid that instantly smooths out the lines particularly well around the mouth. This is then followed by massaging the area throughout the treatment and after, which is a crucial element so all the filler is evenly spread into the area and no bumps or lumps occur.

 
 

Finally, our favourite bit we showed Nikki and demonstrated how she needed to massage at home for the next few days with the arnica gel we provided her.

Nikki said, “Wow, it looks so much smoother and I felt no pain during the procedure!”

In the end, full aftercare was given to Nikki as well as arnica gel which would help with the healing process. The treatment is great as downtime is at a minimum (heals quickly) and make-up can be worn after 12 hours.

The pictures show the instant difference filler has made, Nikki was very happy with the treatment and we look forward to seeing her again for her review.

Claire’s Story: Gummy Smile & Lip Filler Treatment

I’m sure you’ve been hearing about unqualified practitioners carrying out Lip Filler, Botox and other aesthetic treatments and it going wrong. As qualified and trained aesthetics specialists based in Bedfordshire we are sharing the process with you. Join us as we share our client's experience, what should be happening, and what to expect no matter where you are in the UK. If you missed the procedures on Instagram live, don’t worry we have it right here.

Claire came to us feeling self-conscious about her gummy smile; a gummy smile is where the gums are overly exposed when smiling and the upper lip seems to be non-existent.

We usually recommend a small amount of Botox on the upper lip area but results are much more effective if the treatment is combined with lip filler. This is because the lips are also given a fuller appearance and definition.

As a Teaching Assistant, Claire is always smiling, laughing and talking with people and aware of it. She explained from a young age she hated taking photos; she has always been aware and uncomfortable because of her gummy smile and avoids smiling at all.

During the consultation we advised Claire of the benefits, risks e.g. bruising/swelling and process of the treatment. For instance, with the gummy smile we use Botox and a 2-week review is carried out where a top up can be done if needed. Gummy smile Botox is an advanced procedure and must be done with care. Too much Botox in the area can restrict mouth movement, talking and eating. As qualified and trained practitioners, we only insert a particular amount which varies for each client and then topped up after 2 weeks if needed.

The next stage was lip fillers, Claire was aware her top lip was naturally thin and we recommended building up with more filler over time. We both came to the decision to start with 0.5ml Juvederm filler as it was her first time.

 
 

Gummy Smile

We went ahead with the instant numbing cream and the gummy smile Botox which does not take long. Essentially, the area is cleaned and marked; followed up a new fine needle that injects a small amount of Botox on the upper lip area.

Claire added she was feeling very anxious and worried about the pain It didn’t help that as she did not know what to expect as it was her first time having any sort of aesthetic treatment. Although, we helped her relax so she was comfortable and felt no pain, thanks to our numbing cream which instantly made a difference. Here is the before and after of the gummy smile botox and 0.5ml lip filler treatment.

Lip Filler

The lip filler process takes slightly longer, hyaluronic acid is injected around the border of the lips to add more volume. The VIBRATA by Dr. Simon Ourian used by specialists creates a more comfortable experience, massaging the area as the filler was injected.

After the procedure, a full massage was done and some visual bruising and swelling occurred although Claire mentioned she bruises easily and understood the risks before the treatment was done. Also, she was reassured after the treatment as the skin recovers within days. We also recommended ice and arnica gel to use and an aftercare sheet was provided.

 
 

Claire left with a spring in her step, smiling and ready to take Instagram photos with her friend.

“I felt minimum pain and feel like the treatment has made an impact straight away. I was nervous but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.”

We love making our clients happy and look forward to seeing Claire in 2-weeks for her review and we will be sure to keep you updated on her progress and results.

Life With Acne & My Battle To Overcome It: AlumierMD Chemical Peels
Escape+Aesthetics+Acne Journey.jpg

As the Founder of Escape Aesthetics, I’ve never had to write such a difficult blog post; it’s about my personal battle with acne and the challenging journey. After speaking to my team, I’ve finally chosen to share my story with you all.

It has been 7 years since I have been suffering on and off with acne and it had got me feeling low and deflated. The main reason I started Escape Aesthetics was because I wanted to help people feel great, especially those suffering with the same condition as myself. I knew I’d be able to relate to them and help them through it, plus I’d finally found a solution which I will reveal but stay with me. 

Products

It hasn’t been easy on my journey to get to that solution, over the years I’ve spent a ridiculous amount on skin care products, natural products, and treatments. Yes, I have tried and tested nearly all of the home remedies which are known to help acne skin. I always make sure I share my own skin care tips and knowledge with all of my clients too. I don’t want them to waste their time going through what I have for years. It soon affects your self-esteem, career, and life.

Microdermabrasion 

In the past, I have tried 10 sessions of standard beauty microdermabrasion but it was frustrating as I saw no difference after all the money I had spent.

I was lucky as when we started Escape Aesthetics we invested into skin care treatments for our clients. From research, we found Medical Microdermabrasion was 3 times more powerful than the ‘standard microdermabrasion’ which I had experienced in the past. As a result, I had 3 sessions of glycolic acid chemical skin peels combined with medical microdermabrasion and saw an instant difference with my skin, I had fewer breakouts and the scars were fading away.

 
 

Intolerance Test

If you suffer from acne you will know there are many other contributing factors that can cause breakouts, including diet. I’d highly recommend an intolerance test as I found out I was dairy intolerant, which was causing my acne to become aggravated. As you can understand, it was very hard to control as that meant giving up chocolate and not to mention milk and cheese which are essentials for many of us.

Even when I thought my skin was getting better with the controlled diet I was still breaking out. Many people would not understand, even close friends and family would comment on my skin which would make me feel insecure and slowly my confidence was crumbling.

SPF

I’ve always hated wearing too much make-up and dreamed of having naturally healthy skin. The ultimate goal would be to wear nothing on my skin except for SPF (sun protection).

SPF is the secret essential for life long healthy skin. No matter what the season SPF is recommended as it’s similar to wearing a layer that protects your skin and it’s the secret to looking 10 years younger.

AlumierMD Chemical Peels

By this time, I was still experimenting with lots of different skin care products but my skin was at its worse even after the glycolic peels I had tried.

Then my team and I were introduced to a new skincare brand called ‘AlumierMD’, a global skincare brand which only uses natural, active ingredients suited to every skin type and condition.

As I am obsessed with skin care, I was intrigued and immediately did my research to find out more about the brand. I did not know if it would work for me but I took the plunge for my clients who were suffering with various skin conditions.

I jumped on the opportunity to train with AlumierMD and start providing their chemical skin peels and home-care products at Escape Aesthetics. Although, on the day of our training I remember feeling super anxious about my skin as I knew we would be treating each other. I tried to cover up the breakouts but I knew whatever I did they were visible. It was also my birthday week and I didn’t want my skin to get any worse.

After debating with myself and the trainers, I decided to go ahead with the treatment and had a medium strength glow peel. I was super excited to use their products after learning all about the active ingredients which will help acne prone skin. As a result, when I got home I threw away all of my current skin care products and started using the AlumierMD acne range. Yes, I had this much faith in the brand.

 
 

Results

My skincare routine was extensive and since then I have had 3 more AlumierMD radiant 20/10 salicylic acid chemical peels. The photos attached show my skin before I started using AlumierMD products and treatment compared to 2 months after using AlumierMD ACNE range 2 times a day combined with the AlumierMD chemical skin peels.

AlumierMD Home-Care Products

The AlumierMD products I’m using contain active ingredients such as; retinol, salicylic acid, lactic acid, kojic acid, and whitening peptides to brighten the skin (to mention a few) and I use the products 2 times a day without fail. They not only make my skin glow but feel hydrated without clogging my pores.

Conclusion

It’s only been a few months and I’ll be honest, I feel as if my skin is not perfect yet. I still have some scarring with minimum breakouts. Although my AlumierMD treatment sessions are not finished you can definitely see a difference in my skin. I will continue using the acne and pigmentation products by AlumierMD and their salicylic acid chemical peels every 2 weeks which will help the breakouts and scarring.

Overall, it’s genuinely amazing as I can now go out of the house with no make-up on and I feel so much more confident in my skin. 

It has taken me a lot of courage to write this story but I have done it for all of you who struggle too. I hope it helps those of you suffering from any type of acne or skin condition and remember you are beautiful!

Nina Bizaki's Story with Cheek Fillers

Meet the lovely Nina, she has been coming to us for the last year and we genuinely love seeing her and our regulars. It’s as if you’re seeing your friends, catching up with them and being on their journey and that’s exactly how we felt with Nina.

She initially came to us for lip fillers and after getting to know us, she knew she could trust us and decided to have the cheek fillers treatment.

After a couple of months Nina shared how she felt with us. It was as if over time the volume in her cheeks had slowly reduced and her face was starting to look smaller, as a result, it was affecting her life. As a Finance Advisor, she wanted to feel confident when she was in front of clients. She came to us to enhance her natural features and add volume to her cheeks.

Scientific research also shows hyaluronic acid is naturally presented in the cheeks, yet over time it reduces as you age. Many celebrities and influencers use cheek fillers as they contain hyaluronic acid which temporarily replaces this volume- giving you a lifted and youthful look.

We advised her we don’t recommend plastic surgery due to the risks and long-term implications, instead our cheek filler treatment was an ideal solution.

We use only the best dermal fillers; ‘Juvederm’ which can last from 6-12 months. During the procedure a small amount of cheek filler is injected evenly onto the cheekbone for natural results. The more you build up the fillers over time, the longer the effects will last. Nina decided to build up her cheekbones over time with 0.5ml Juvederm filler. The pictures below show how her cheeks looked before and immediately after treatment . You will be able to notice how her cheekbones are lifted and more defined.

Nina returned for a top up every 3-months over the last 12 months to achieve the volume and maintain it. We specialise in natural enhancement, so the treatment is never drastic. Also, the fillers we use are reversible and carry minimum side effects as they have been used and tested on for a very long time.

Many women and men ask us how painful are cheek fillers and we always like to share, if you go to a trained and qualified practice, they should use instant numbing cream prior to the treatment and the industry’s best fillers which also contain anaesthetic. The best practices use our VIBRATA by the world famous Dr. Simon Ourian so you will feel minimum to no pain during the procedure.

“I felt no pain, the treatment was quick and I was made to feel incredibly relaxed.”

Nina went on to explain the cheek fillers has given her a subtle enhancement, whilst adding that volume back to her cheeks. Even her close friends noticed a difference in her from confidence and appearance, but could not put their finger on it. She said that’s exactly what she wanted, discrete beauty enhancement and it feels great.

Thank you for letting us share your journey Nina and I hope it helps many of you too. If you're still unsure about cheek or lip (dermal) fillers or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Don’t worry, we are a qualified and trusted practice so you know you’re always in safe hands with Escape Aesthetics.

Alternatively, you can always book your free consultation.

Sharai Toner's Story: Anti-Ageing Treatment
 

As you may already be aware from my previous blog posts, I love helping our clients; it’s not just about enhancing their beauty but helping resolve their pain e.g. from teeth grinding treatment to Botox for headaches

If you asked me what’s most rewarding if I’m honest I started this business with my mother to help women, and men to solve medical problems delivered by trusted and qualified practitioners. 

Let’s face it, the media is pressuring us to look younger and research shows women are suffering from low self-esteem more than ever. The selfie/blogger generation isn’t going anywhere. As the beauty industry turn to plastic surgery or spending thousands a year on make-up, we believe in subtle temporary beauty enhancements to bring out your natural beauty and feel confident instantly.

Our next client was one of the most rewarding and the reasons I wake up in the mornings as her confidence was low. Meet Sharai Toner, a European PA who came to us as she was suffering from a long-term illness and felt it had aged her. As a result, it left her feeling down, defeated and confidence was at an all-time low. 

“I felt I’d aged prematurely due to a long illness”.

Sharai Toner's Story: Anti-Ageing Treatment

Sharai Toner's Story: Anti-Ageing Treatment

Before any treatment we have a consultation, my mother and I try to put ourselves in our client's shoes. In Sharai's case, it made me think, she's in the peak of her life and unlike others, she had already been through a lot and simply wants to love herself again to bring her confidence back. 

Imagine suffering from an illness with the stress and pain eating you from inside and when you’re finally on the other side you look at yourself in the mirror and the suffering continues. 

The Anti-Ageing Packaging was ideal for Sharai, as it included lip filler treatment, Botox that focused on her frown lines and dermal filler for her smile lines (lines from her nose to mouth area). These are areas which develop with age and need to be targeted early for best long lasting results.

I cannot put into words how I felt when Sharai shared how she felt after the treatment...“I did not expect the difference to be so profound and make such a massive difference to my self-confidence”. 

We wanted to make sure she was happy, so we caught up with her after her treatment and you’ll be pleased to know she now no longer feels the need to wear make-up and feels great! 

“I look young and fresher, no pain after the swelling”.

It is an honour to be able to help women and men and be that beacon of light and we hope Sharai health, happiness, and a beautiful future.

Daniel Lennon's Story: Teeth Grinding & Jawline Slimming
 

Last week we shared Layla’s story, she came to us for Botox as her headaches were affecting her daily life. Meet Sales Consultant, Daniel Lennon, who had a similar pain but it was affecting his sleep and caused by teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.

After Treatment: Teeth Grinding & Jawline Slimming

After Treatment: Teeth Grinding & Jawline Slimming

As a Qualified Hygienist, I see many patients who suffer from teeth grinding and it’s more common than people think; it's estimated 50 to 95% of adults suffer from the condition.

Teeth grinding most commonly occurs whilst sleeping; it can start from headaches, sore jaw, gum recession, tooth sensitivity to loose teeth, shortening of teeth and even lead to loss of tooth structure. And long-term it can cause cracked and broken teeth and even damage to the bone structure of the jaw.

Normally your partner would be able to tell you if you grind your teeth, if not, your dentist who would be able to tell from the state of your teeth or if you wake up and suffer from headaches you would do as Daniel did book an appointment to visit your dentist. Although after visiting the dentist and trying alternative dental treatment, Daniel was still suffering and wasn’t satisfied to the point he became frustrated as nothing seemed to be working, so he decided it was time to try Botox.

Botox is not just available for aesthetic purposes but can be used as a quick, painless and non-surgical solution to stop teeth grinding. Botox works by preventing the muscle contraction, which is involved with teeth grinding/clenching.

You may be wondering if it actually works? Well, Daniel was over the moon with the result, and told us he was really glad gave Botox a try, as it not only helped with headaches but dental problems, sleep disturbance and slimed his jawline.

For those of you who may be thinking about it, you will be glad to know, Daniel added it was pain-free and he hasn’t had any issues after the treatment. He even stated he can finally wake up with no pain in his jaw after a long time of suffering.

We are always happy to hear we eliminated the pain from our clients, as that was one of the main reasons my mother and I started the business.

If you suffer from teeth grinding we hope sharing the knowledge will help you too but if you're still unsure or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.

Layla Vardy's Story: Top Tips for Botox & Lip Filler
 

Meet Layla, our regular client, who was ever so kind in letting us share her Botox and lip filler experience. It was great to get her input for this blog post and we thought why not share some top tips for those of you who are not sure about going ahead with the treatments.


You may have heard of Botox and lip fillers as they are very popular in London. And our clients not only come from Luton and London but Bedford, Harpenden and Milton Keynes and prefer these non-surgical treatments as they are not permanent for beauty enhancement. Also, did you know Botox has been a godsend for people who have excessive sweating, teeth grinding and even headaches in Layla's case?

Layla Vardy's Lip Filler at Escape Aesthetics, Luton

Layla Vardy's Lip Filler at Escape Aesthetics, Luton

Layla came to us as she had toyed with the idea of Botox for her headaches and lip filler for quite some time... "I've always wanted to enhance the fullness and shape of my lips". In addition, she informed us her headaches were becoming all too frequent and affecting her daily life and heard Botox could be a solution. Although rather than just going to any practitioner she carried out her research to see what were the implications, if it would work for her and once she was satisfied, she researched for reliable trustworthy practices. 

Botox injections are commonly known for cosmetic purposes, yet it also plays a crucial role in treating certain medical conditions, as a result, Botox is now widely used by the medical professionals to treat chronic migraines. If you're wondering how it works, Botox acts as a muscle-paralysing injection, which has nerve-blocking effects. It's been tested for several years and is seen as a reliable, effective and safe way to treat certain medical conditions by medical practitioners, such as headaches. 

In the cosmetics industry, Botox is used as a temporary solution to treat fine lines and facial wrinkles. The effects are fully reversible within time and have a very low risk of side effects. 

Now you may be wondering, what Layla was thinking during and after the treatment and we asked her to give her honest feedback...

Layla Vardy's Botox at Escape Aesthetics, Luton

Layla Vardy's Botox at Escape Aesthetics, Luton

"I honestly feel fabulous! The treatments with Ani and Shameem at Escape Aesthetics are always quick and relatively pain-free.

No matter how nervous I feel, I am always met with friendly, welcoming faces and a warm caring atmosphere that immediately puts at ease. That matched with a professional and patient-focused clinic space, I can see why the ladies are successful aesthetics practitioners."

Oh, and if you're wondering did Botox reduce Layla's headaches?

Thanks to Layla, we've added our top tips, which will help you with your research and when deciding whether to go ahead with any treatments.

  1. Always do your research and ask yourself, 'could the treatment actually help me with my headaches?', as there's always a possibility it may not work.

  2. Find practices that seem reliable, from checking the location of their surgery, professional practises have websites and reviews on Facebook and Google. If they have less than 20 reviews, be aware it may not be accurate.

  3. It's definitely worth checking out the practice and use a new injection.

  4. If you're not sure, book in for your face to face consultation.

  5. Most reliable practices will take their time to advise you, and tailor the treatment to your bespoke needs and they should work with you to achieve the desired final outcome.

We hope Layla's input and our top tips help to make your decision easier.

If you're still unsure or have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us or you can always book a free consultation.
