Recovery blog of a typical patient

Read the patient blog below to gain an understanding on the recovery process for some of our non-surgical aesthetic treatments. The blog below gives a typical overview to the recovery process, but it is important to note that recovery may differ between patients.

Anti-wrinkle treatment to Glabella and around eyes.

Day 1

No problems, face feels fine, no side effects or changes as yet.

Day 2

All is well.  Forehead definitely tightening at the bottom and I’m not just imagining it. I can’t frown as hard as before. I know it’s early days but definitely a change. I’d liken it to feeling like the skin is dry after washing my face and not moisturising.

Day 3

Eyes a little tighter today and it’s getting much harder to frown, which is great. Feels like a tension headache, although that makes it sound uncomfortable and distracting – which it isn’t.

Day 4 

No obvious changes but guess the process is slowing down, however there’s nothing bad to report.

Day 5 

Face feels just fine.  Was expecting some tightness or odd sensation but totally comfortable.  Eyes slightly better today and I’m certainly pleased with results so far.

Day 7

Lines around eyes are getting even better.

Day 8

Face still gradually improving.  Forehead lines gone and eyes have certainly eased.

Day 9

I love what has been done so far and I’m really impressed.

Day 12

Hasn’t changed much in last few days. Forehead is line free, but there are still some very light fine lines around the eyes.

Day 16

Had a top-up treatment around eyes and the forehead is fantastic!

Day 20

Eye lines have improved even more. Generally, I’m very pleased indeed.

Day 24

My face is looking great and the lines have all but gone! Very natural and really pleased!


Juvederm Volbella for lip augmentation.

Day 2

Lips are brilliant! So pleased. They are a little swollen today and feel a little bruised, however I hope this is just the normal process (secretly hoping they stay this size).  It’s eased off since I got up and about and I love it. Who would think something could make such a difference.

Day 3

It only really lasted a day, yet the swelling has gone right down now.

Day 4

Swelling gone.  I love the result, it’s great and so natural.

Day 6

Can’t explain how impressed I am with fillers.  Best £350 I have spent on myself for as long as I can remember.  A real confidence boost.
