23/3/2021 We are opening on the 12th April.
We are still in the year of hope but it has been a tough time for some and today is a Day of Remembrance, one year on from the first lockdown. I am still here and its literally my job to help people feel better about themselves and I am so ready to get back to meeting people to do just that.
I’ve joined Save Face so I’m now proud to be an Accredited Practitioner. I’ve always worked to the Save Face standards because my nursing background requires it of me in any case but it is great to have the recognition and the stamp of approval and quality. It will be easier for patients to give feedback and it will mean new patients can find me more easily too. I’ve also joined Glowday which is a similar organisation that will only recommend practitioners who have met their professional standards.
On a very different note, I’ve found a team of people at Tabeo who can help patients to spread payments for treatments over three to six months. I have some patients who are trailing it before we open up but I am confident it will make life easier and treatments more accessible.
If you’re planning to have treatments make sure you tell me about your vaccine dates as these need to be a couple of weeks away from any dermal filler treatments in particular. I will always ask you of course. In fact, you’ll probably be used to all the COVID questions and temperature checks by now. I’ll also be reducing the number of people I see every day so there’s lots of time to thoroughly clean the room between uses. I’ll be doing some parts of the consultation beforehand on facetime or zoom so that time together is a little shorter to reduce risk. I’ve had both of my vaccines so feel safe but until we are all safe, I’ll be continuing to take every precaution to keep everyone else safe too.
I’ve loved giving vaccines while our clinics couldn’t be open and one day I gave 120 shots. That’s 1 every 5 minutes over 12 hours. It was one of the best days of my career.
6/12/20 One door closes and another door opens; this will be our year of hope.
Well, what a year…and its not over yet. I took a room in Harley St in February. I began to understand that although they are a great complement to each other, it is not right for the worlds of beauty and medical aesthetics to mix so closely because what I do for patients are clinical procedures. Lack of clarity in the past has led to beauticians thinking they are safe to administer prescription type medicine like toxin, and the meds needs to reverse the rare but significant complications of dermal filler. It is absolutely essential to be trained and properly insured and able to manage complications in order to administer toxin and dermal fillers. Harley St offers a reputation of medical excellence although it still needs to be earned. Make no mistake, just because Harley St is full of doctors and highly skilled professionals, it is also full of charlatans.
Although I stopped practicing aesthetics during lookdown and worked on the wards to help with COVID19, isolating from Alun who stayed away to mind his mum in Bedford, my little practice has been growing. This is largely thanks to word of mouth recommendations which means that when people come to see me, they know what to expect – natural looking, healthy, wellbeing based aesthetics advice and treatment.
Yesterday, having paid to rent a room one day a week without reprieve during the six months of the first lockdown, I found my own little room in Harley St, just out the back door of John Lewis on Oxford St, so I can be more flexible and make it my own. I can see patients Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
I’m loving providing dermal filler to rejuvenate lips and cheeks and Profhilo for health skin glow. I’ve recently added VitB12 for wellbeing injections and I’m looking forward to giving more Sunekos especially to people with tired or sunken eyes.
I’m looking into weigh loss injections, such as Saxenda too for the new year so we will all be in it together because frankly and I am not judging myself here, I have been hitting the chocolate a little hard so action needs to be taken against the Corona Kilos.
Call me to make an appointment, even if its just for a free no strings consultation. I will of course tell you how brilliant Alumier skin care is, but I’ll be thrilled to see you at my new clinic and will be happy to discuss hopes and dreams for the new year now that we have a vaccine (I’m on the Oxford trail) in our sights. One door closes and another door opens; this will be our year of hope.
