I think this is what I chat about with my clients the most. Expectations. So many clients have HUGE expectations from ONE treatment, ONE ml of filler, ONE session of botox. We simply cannot predict how your face will respond to these therapies, but what I can guarantee is that if you’re over 35 then ONE of anything will not be enough. Yes good medical aesthetics is expensive and in the face of other bills isn’t a priority. And that’s fine! There’s lots of other ways to make yourself feel fabulous without facial injectables; new lippy, haircut, statement jewellery. If you do decide that facial aesthetics is the road you need to travel to feel fabulous please remember it’s a journey, not a one off treatment. In the case of Botox you’ll need to commit to repeating the treatment every 3-4 months to maintain the results. For filler it might be one treatment every 1-2 years if you’re having “scaffolding” work done (cheeks, chins, jawlines) but ONE ml won’t be enough, you might need 4-5ml to get the results you desire. Similarily with vampire facials or microneedling; repeat the process until you get the results you want and then maintain every 12 weeks. I absolutely love going on this journey with my clients and see some incredible results which I simply cannot share due to confidentiality. BUT, please don’t think your practitioner is trying to rob you blind when they set expectations. They just don’t want you to go away feeling short changed when ONE ml of filler or ONE vampire facial didn’t give you the results you crave.
