These are a collection of words or phrases my ladies use to describe how they feel during a confidential chat within my clinic.
Do they sound familiar to you?
As a woman, born into the world of a baby boomer I was taught the same values and thought processes that she was brought up with.
I am lucky, I believe because I grew up asking questions, “why can’t I do that job? Why can’t I do better than him? But it’s my money…” My generation has pushed the boundaries that my Mom was set. And my kids will do the same again!
But my Mom’s generation, YOU GUYS – the majority of the ladies I see in my clinic. I see and feel the turmoil you have, you let your boundaries down, you open-up, you cry, I feel with you. That anxiety you hold for wanting to look and feel better but just can’t bring yourselves to do it, as you were always taught to put others first and to just accept the way things are!
All that pain you feel for wanting to change the physical effects of aging, menopause and genetics, the self-recrimination you put yourself through because you were told “you should just grow old gracefully!”
I plead with you ladies, be stronger than that. This is your body, this is your time, you have done an amazing job and you deserve so much more than what you believe you deserve.
Yes, men do not get it! (Sorry to the guys reading this- I know there are a few exceptions) They don’t age like us, they look better with time, more refined and the total opposite to our significant decline into our 50’s! We have a right to be angry!
Of course, you want to change the way you look to a certain degree, you are grieving for the woman you once were.
But I can assure you, most of your friends feel the same. So, get out of your head, stop thinking what others might think, the only person you are doing this for is YOU!
If you think you want to have a chat, send me a message, an email or call, you don’t need to go through with anything, my consultations are free and completely confidential.
Lots of love to you strong independent beautiful ladies out there
I’m here for you when you’re ready.
‘In my eyes a good aesthetic result is one that is undetectable, one that makes YOU feel amazing’
You need to get to know them. Have they got qualifications that state they can do the treatment? And do they have the right medical support if something goes wrong?
It’s scary to think that these “horror’ stories and botched jobs by untrained and uncertified practioners – of which some “claim they are a medical practioner” could have been avoided if the right questions had been asked.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Remember these dermal filler and toxin injections are a medical procedure despite being one associated with the beauty industry and should be done by a medical practioner in case anything should go wrong.
CONSULTATION IS KEY
You should be offered a consultation prior to having a treatment. You should not feel rushed, be long enough for you to ask all your questions, you should feel confident and really reassured. Remember, you don’t have to have a treatment the same day and don’t be pressurised into something that doesn’t sit right with you.
This is what makes me me! As a nurse I have an ultimate duty of care to you, you are not my customer – you are my patient. I’m here to support you pre-treatment, and post – even years later if needed.
