The Weekend Neos Kosmos : 1 April 2017
DIGITAL.NEOSKOSMOS.COM THE WEEKEND NEOS KOSMOS | SATURDAY 1 APRIL 2017 19 FEATURE Yes, more than a few times actually. Personally I make it about the client, not my potential to earn, of course we would all love to [be] rich and successful but dealing with people’s faces and their emotional wellbeing means it is a sensitive position to be in. It's not an easy job but I love it, I want my clients to walk away feeling beautiful and happy about themselves. I like to say that you shouldn't want to change the physical appearance of your face dramatically, but rather replace and enhance natural beauty. Less is definitely more and I subtly advised against having any work done to some of the younger clients I have had walking through. Have you had anything done yourself? Of course, I love it. For myself, I’m in my 30s, it's definitely more about prevention, I'm happy to age gracefully, but for now, if I can slow down the process why not? If I didn't believe in my products and the services I sell I'd be considered a fraud. What has been your biggest challenge in the industry? Patient expectations. People often come to me thinking I'm a plastic surgeon. What happens commonly in an initial consultation? We talk about the patient’s desired expectations, what they want and then what is achievable. I aim for those visiting me for the first time to walk away happy with their experience and, of course, return. How long do the results last? This really depends on the treatment and area, as a very rough estimation, tox can last up to three or four months and dermal fillers longer. It varies but it is best to discuss it during a consultation as each circumstance is different. Is there a recovery time? With tox, normally no, we call it a ‘lunch time’ procedure. You may experience minimal redness and possibly, but very rarely, some bruising. It can take approximately 14 days for tox to kick in, so clients walk out looking the same as they did when they came in. Dermal fillers however will result in some redness, swelling, and often bruising post-treatment, all of which are completely normal. What advice would you give for someone wanting to look into it? What questions should they ask in the consultation? Of most importance is to ask about the product being used and then research it. I'm often surprised as to how many people have no idea what is being injected into their faces. It's also good to ask about the common side effects if that was not already addressed in the consultation process, and lastly, expectations. Discuss what is achievable and what is just not realistic.
