My cosmetic journey with Air Aesthetics Clinic
Hi, my name is Jayne Meehan and I am writing to tell you about my unique skin care program. I have been a patient of Dr. Claire Oliver for almost eight months now and would like to share my cosmetic journey with you!
It started in June last year when I was feeling particularly miserable with my mirror image. I was fast approaching my 45th birthday and my frown and nose to mouth lines were worsening. In addition, my face looked ‘drawn’ and the quality of my skin seemed poor – grey and dull looking.
I had researched a number of local aesthetic practitioners but decided to visit Dr. Claire Oliver as I had been admiring some facial rejuvenation work she did for one of my friends.
Back then, my nose to mouth lines were upsetting me considerably and I decided that this was the first problem area I wanted to address. I must admit, I was a little anxious but Dr. Claire Oliver alleviated my fears with her professional and reassuring approach.
Claire recommended a Dermal Filler called Juvederm to soften these deep folds. I found the procedure relatively quick and painless, the excitement of how my appearance would change at the forefront of my mind! I was not disappointed – in fact I was totally amazed at the change! The lines had almost faded completely – this made a huge and instant difference to the way I looked. The after effects of Juvederm were minimal: some slight swelling, only to be expected, but this went away within a few days. Dr Claire Oliver informed me that the filler would last at least 12 months, possibly longer – at which time I would need to repeat the treatment in order to maintain the results.
A few months later, I finally decided to take the plunge and have Anti-Wrinkle Injections to soften my frown lines. Again I was a little anxious and asked Dr. Claire Oliver lots of questions. Is it dangerous? Can it travel away from the muscle and harm me? How much is injected, etc. What I learnt was very reassuring – especially the knowledge that the amount injected is so tiny –compared to say, the amount used to treat a child with cerebral palsy – it really did seem unnecessary to worry. Like me, many people are worried about how they may feel after Anti-Wrinkle Injections: will I feel frozen? Will it feel strange? Actually, for me, it did not feel odd at all, just a little different at first. But even this wears off to the point where you just don’t notice any change – with the exception of your appearance. It was so exciting to wake up every day and notice a smoother complexion – the lines softening and eventually, for me, disappearing. The Anti-Wrinkle Injections lasted around three to four months and I have since repeated it twice, the result improving and lasting even longer with each treatment
I then decided to address the problem of my sunken cheeks. I had lost a lot of weight in my face and felt like I looked constantly tired and drawn even when I wasn’t. Claire recommended a product called Juvederm Voluma for this. This had been part of the initial treatment plan Dr. Claire Oliver had prescribed for me during my first consultation with her. All I can say is: WOW! And that’s an understatement; I really could not believe the difference! It looked similar to a very good facelift, nothing artificial – just tighter, firmer skin. I really did look more radiant and youthful! I can highly recommend this treatment.
