Even though treatments like Botox and dermal fillers are increasing in popularity, no one seems to talk openly about them. I don’t think it should be shrouded in secrecy any longer, and I’m going to just own it. I’m going to share the journey with you guys- including the heinous before pics- and let you in on EVERYTHING. I’ll let you know how much it hurts (or doesn’t), how much it costs, how long it lasts, and much more. Because I’m also a freak for skin care, you’ll be happy to know that this is in no way being neglected; I’ll be exploring specialised treatments such as facial peels and Skin DNA testing. It’s all going to be crazy exciting.
Because I’m a planner, and a researcher at heart, I spent a good amount of time deciding where I would go to have these treatments performed. I’ve been a fan of Dr Catherine Stone for years- she’s the rock star who owns The Face Place, New Zealand’s first medical spa. She was the first doctor in Australasia to specialise in Botox...I knew I’d be in good hands. I also need to mention how awesome she is in person; completely warm and approachable, and full of knowledge. She can also write upside down, and has a collection of soft toys for patients to cuddle when receiving treatment- LOVE. You can read more about Cat and the treatments she practices here. The Face Place also offers all the skin treatments I was interested in, so it was the logical choice- I’m so excited to be visiting them!
So- here’s how it will work: over the next 6 months, I’m going to be sharing my experiences with you via blog posts just like this. I know you’ll all have heaps of questions (and perhaps opinions?), so please do feel free to leave comments below, and I’ll do my best to respond to all of you. Buckle up- this is going to be amazing!!
