For the last 12 weeks of 2016, our client Pauline underwent a life changing make-over. Pauline came to us in September 2016 after having spent 18 months feeling as though she’d been neglecting herself following the passing of her husband. Pauline wanted to get back on the dating scene and join a dating agency but felt she needed to re-build her self-confidence before she could do so.
“I also thought it would be a good project to keep me focused on something positive rather than suffer from empty nest syndrome when my younger son left home for university.”
In Pauline’s initial consultation with our expert Treatment Coordinator Charlotte, at our St Johns Wood clinic, she opened up about all her concerns and what she wanted to achieve from her treatments at EF MEDISPA. With this freedom, Charlotte was able to put together a personalised treatment plan using a combination of therapies to get Pauline feeling and looking like her old self.
“The first consultation with Charlotte was really encouraging. She pointed out all the positive features that would be enhanced by the treatments rather than making me feel self-conscious about my body and face.”
Although in fairly good shape to begin with, like many of us, Pauline wanted to lose some excess fat from around her middle, whilst also toning and smoothing her skin. To begin her health and fitness overhaul, Pauline had 5 EMS personal training sessions with E-Pulsive. This, alongside the 30 days of gourmet healthy meal deliveries from The Pure Package, Pauline was able to kick-start her healthy eating and exercise regime.
“Two treatments with Vanquish on my tummy fat have had a big difference. I was very self-conscious about my podgy tummy but can imagine myself being ‘beach ready’ for a bikini.”
Pauline’s main concerns on her face were pigmentation and signs of ageing. Pauline started her make over with the 3D SkinLift by Ultraformer alongside a course of Mesotherapy to help lift and tighten her skin.
We then went on to tackle her Pigmentation. We did this with our Depigmentation peel, which works to shed the damaged skin cells to reveal a clearer more even complexion.
“I was warned this was a heavy duty peel and to expect some downtime. I had high expectations of this and when I started peeling on day 2 I was
excited to see results. On day 5 when I was red and wizened like an old lady I was seriously questioning whether I had done the right thing… Then suddenly my old face came back – but glowing and clear and virtually pigment free. People started commenting on my skin – saying how much fresher I looked.”
“I look radiant – I feel so much younger but still ‘me’. I keep catching glimpses of myself in car mirrors, shop windows etc and admiring the mastery of Dr Marco. I can still smile, frown and raise my eyebrows, but I look like a better version of me. This was the one treatment I was most nervous of, but am a convert.”
As you can see from Pauline’s before and afters, the make-over has really transformed her appearance. However, Pauline notes that the make-over has not only changed how she looks on the outside, but also how she feels on the inside.
“All in all, a really life-changing experience, for which I could not be more grateful. And it turns out I didn’t need the dating agency, as during all this I met a really lovely man and am now dating happily. And I’m able to fit into my skinny jeans having dropped a dress size!”
