Olivia's Story

Overview
How did it go?

From a young age, Olivia Papworth struggled at the hands of bullies who singled her out because of her distinctive nose.

After years of insults had left her self- esteem at an all- time low, the Cheshire based beautician decided enough was enough and booked in for a Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty at SkinViva. Following her treatment, Olivia’s confidence changed dramatically and the 21 year old soon decided to share her story in the hopes of helping others who have had a similar experience.

“Ever since I was little, from the beginning of high school onwards, I was painfully aware about the size and shape of my nose. And it’s fair to say that a large bump on the bridge of it has caused me years of emotional distress. If I ever had a falling out with anyone, the insults would come flying, and they were always the same – ‘hook nose!’ or ‘big nose’.

“Some girls would even shout, ‘Look, it’s Stacey Solomon!’ as I walked past. I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up. Even my boyfriend at the time would make nasty remarks about my face, calling me ‘big nose’.

“Every time I heard those words, they really stung. I’d regularly be in floods of tears while my mum tried to pick up the pieces.

“That’s why I decided enough was enough – I knew I had to do something about it. Not for those who taunted me but for myself, to help me feel good about myself for once.”

"I'm so glad I did it"

Overview

Selfie-Crazy!

“For the first time since I was a little girl I can wear my hair up with confidence. Meanwhile everyone who sees me comments on how happy I look. Also, I’ve never taken so many photographs of myself. I’ve gone selfie crazy.”

Did you consider surgery?

“I toyed with the idea of a full-on, surgical nose job but I was always too scared to go through with it. That sort of nose job can really change your whole appearance. I’ve known people who’ve had it done and look like completely different people – I didn’t want to change my whole face, just my nose.

“I was really excited when I found out about the less-intrusive procedure because it was not only quicker than a surgical nose job but it was cheaper too.”

How did you find the non-surgical nose job?

“After the procedure I cried as soon as I looked in the mirror – I was so happy. The results were just instant. It’s a subtle change, one that some people might not notice, but it’s made a massive difference to me.”

"I couldn't be happier"

How did it go?

Dr Tim

“Olivia is a young, beautiful girl so it was such a shame that her nose affected her confidence.

“As the nose is the centre of the face, it is very common for people of all ages to become very self-conscious if they are not happy with the size or shape of it.”

What about surgery?

“Having surgery comes with risks. It’s also very expensive and can have a long recovery period.”

"At SkinViva it is great that we have the ability to change the shape and size of someone's nose by using a long-lasting reversible filler in just 20 minutes."

How does it make you feel?

“For the first time ever I can walk down the street without feeling self-conscious.

“My previous relationship was far from perfect – he said some really hurtful things and for a long time. But my new look has given me confidence after a series of setbacks. I genuinely feel like a completely different person, not one plagued with insecurities about the way I look.”

"And I've found a guy who not only loves me, but treats me like a princess."

Michele's Story

“My results were really subtle, definitely made me look fresher and there was a definitive change for the better”

I found out about SkinViva on Facebook. They were running a promotion. I felt like I needed a boost as I was looking a little tired and feeling like I had aged.

As I am fast approaching 50, a mother of three and a grandmother of three, I wanted to revive my aging looks.

Prior to treatment, I was apprehensive about fillers as you do hear some horror stories.

What made you go ahead?

Dr Tim was charming, friendly and fully explained the whole procedure of the VivaLift and made me feel very confident at putting my one and only face in his hands.

Overview

What concerns did you have?

My main concern was how painful it would be and if I would look totally different.

The treatment experience

My concerns about the pain were soon laid to rest as apart from the odd tingle when injected in more sensitive areas, I never felt any pain.

Dr Tim being the professional that he is advised me it was better to have subtle changes which would give me a natural, refreshed look. He was very informative, very attentive, and extremely professional. Making me feel at ease throughout.

Treatment concerns

Dr Tim

As Michele is approaching 50. She was the perfect client to benefit from the SkinViva VivaLift. A treatment which uses filler and anti-wrinkle injections to make small changes all over the face, which creates an overall natural fuller, fresher look.

I have smoothed out the fine lines creating a flawless look. By adding volume to the cheeks and under eyes, it has had a great rejuvenating effect and has also helped to lift the jawline.

This is the type of treatment that most of our clients want. A fresh, natural, flawless look. Most women just want to look the best they can for the age that they are.

My results were really subtle, definitely made me look fresher and there was a definitive change for the better.

I was looked after from start to finish by Dr Tim and the SkinViva team before, during and after my treatment. I just had to pick up the phone and my questions were answered.

Now that I know I can trust Dr Tim and the SkinViva team. I am now considering having other treatments.

Sue's Story

Overview
Treatment concerns
Expert's comments
Testimonial

“All my friends and family have said how great I’m looking”

I used to say that I would never have botox or fillers. I didn’t like the sound of it. I had seen all the filler disasters on the TV and lots of bad press in the media.

Then over time I knew of a few people that had all been to SkinViva that all spoke so highly of them, and they looked so great but so natural. So I did some research and could see what a professional company they were. I liked the fact that they were all medical and that they were specialists in injectable’s.

What made you go ahead?

I decided to go for it – I have always looked after my skin and been healthy, but I’m 60 so do have lines which I don’t like. I loved the fact that I would see an immediate effect from fillers

I wanted to look a bit fresher, not younger, just as good as I can for my age. I was particularly bothered my downturned mouth as it can make you look sad.

Overview

What concerns did you have?

I was a little apprehensive before the treatment, but as soon as I met the doctor – I felt very confident in him and I loved the fact that he was not pushy or salesy. His focus seemed to be on what was best for me. I left him to do what he thought was best as I trusted him so much.

The treatment experience

The doctor was really friendly. He spent a lot of time discussing what the best treatment for me would be. He made me feel very relaxed throughout the whole treatment.

Treatment concerns

Dr Sabba

Sue has fantastic cheek bones with excellent definition, but a little bit of volume loss underneath her cheek bones, there’s also volume loss in her chin as well as her frown line which she said she would like softened. We reduced the shadows and made the most of the definition in her cheeks but re-volumised underneath her cheeks and her chin to remove some of the shadows to reveal her natural features, and make the most of her underlying beauty. By re-volumising underneath her mouth, and by relaxing the muscle that pulls down on the corner of the mouth by using a little bit of wrinkle relaxant, we’ve managed to lift the corners of her mouth and give her a happier aura, which is just what she wanted.

All my friends/family have said how great I’m looking, and how well I look. None of them expected it was from filler till I told them. They could not believe how youthful and radiant I looked but without looking done. A few of them have now been to SkinViva for treatment themselves.

I’m so happy with all of my treatment but especially my mouth, as I look happier now.

It has just given me a fresh, radiant glow which has just given me an extra confidence.

“Skin Viva encourage the natural, subtle look, and that’s what I want”

I was 25 when I decided to start having treatments. I knew it was only a matter of time till I started to get fine lines so decided to start having anti-wrinkle injections as a prevention treatment.

What made you go ahead?

I had been to a couple of other companies  – good, reputable companies, but the lady who does my eyebrows recommended that I start going to SkinViva.

I’m so glad I took her advice. As soon as I got in touch with them, they were all so helpful and friendly, but still clinical and professional.

Overview

What concerns did you have?

You always feel a little nervous before having an injectable treatment, but the doctor made me feel so at ease. What struck me straight away is that the doctor was so on the ball. You could tell that he was really knowledgeable and experienced.

The treatment experience

I noticed that he changed the needle more regularly throughout the treatment than previous clinicians had and when I asked him why, he said it was to make sure that the needle is always really sharp so it is a more comfortable treatment and less bruising. It’s nice to find a doctor that actually cares about his clients. Not just interested in taking your money.

Treatment concerns

Dr Lucy

Elissa is a perfect example of how we have lots of clients that come to us for reasons other than to erase lines.

Elissa is already beautiful and shows little signs of aging, however by having aesthetic treatments it will help to maintain her natural beauty and enhance her features.

By using small amounts of  filler, her lips now appear plumper, the profile of her nose is straighter, her cheeks fuller and jawline slightly lifted. I also used anti-wrinkle injections on Elissa’s upper face to create a smooth forehead and to maintain her youthful, healthy appearance.

Together all these small, very subtle changes have created a more youthful appearance whilst still maintaining a completely natural look.

I really trust SkinViva that they won’t carry out work that I don’t need. They encourage the natural, subtle look, and that’s what I want. To enhance my features without looking done.

I love having my forehead treated because it gives me a really nice brow lift.

I have always been obsessed with my nose and have often thought about having a nose job and then at my last treatment the doctor said that he could sort it out and with just a couple of filler injections it was sorted. Now I am more than happy with my nose.

“I was so pleased with the results. They exceeded my expectations”

I found out about SkinViva as one of my clients worked for them. Then some of my clients started going to them and I could see the great results. I have always been pro work and I have always believed in prevention and making small changes, as and when you need it. I have never been a fan of the overdone look.

What made you go ahead?

I wanted to slow down the ageing process, to enhance what I have, and to make the best of my features.

I especially liked Dr Tim’s ethics. He won’t over treat anyone and encourages you to remain natural looking.

Overview

What concerns did you have?

I didn’t really have any concerns as the consultation was very good. It was in depth, everything was explained really well to me.

The treatment experience

The treatment was better than I expected. It was a lot less painful. The doctor was really gentle. I have always needed dental blocks, but I was fine with just numbing cream.

Treatment concerns

Dr Tim

Claire is a perfect example of how aesthetics can be used to maintain and enhance natural youthful beauty.

Claire has had anti-wrinkle injections to the forehead and around her eye area to create a smooth flawless appearance and to help prevent fine lines forming. I put a little filler in her cheeks to give a more youthful, plumped up appearance as losing volume in the cheek area is one of the first signs of ageing, particularly with someone like Claire who looks after herself by keeping slim. I also used small amounts of filler in her nose and lips which has helped to create perfect proportions of the face.

The overall result is that it has created a very natural airbrushed effect.

I just look fresher, plumped up, more youthful. My make-up looks amazing as it does not sit in the little fine lines and creases now.

I was so pleased with the results. They exceeded my expectations. Nothing looked done. Nobody would have known that I had anything done if I didn’t tell them.

“ I look flawless - my make-up looks amazing!”

I had a treatment a few years ago with another company but was not happy with the results and they left me very badly bruised which put me off till now.

What made you go ahead?

My manager at work and her friends had all been to SkinViva for treatments, I could see that none of them had any problems and they all looked so much better. So I thought, I’m getting older – why not?

I wanted to look younger, especially under my eyes. I wanted to look firmer, more youthful and fresher. I booked a consultation and was amazed at the difference in service straight away. You could tell just by booking in with the girls on the phone that they were specialists in what they do.

Overview

What concerns did you have?

In my consultation the doctor asked me if I had considered having my lips done. This was the one treatment that I thought I would never have done. You always see so many bad jobs / massive lips on the TV. But I was so confident in the company and doctor that I trusted he would know best and do it well. He showed me lots of pictures of bad jobs (not by them) and good jobs (by them) to reassure me. I didn’t tell anyone that I was having the treatment as I thought they might put me off.

The treatment experience

As soon as I met the doctor, I felt that I was in safe hands. The consultation was so in depth. They explained everything so well. I had so many questions to ask, but by the end of the consultation, they had already answered them all. By the time it came to having the treatment, I was not worried at all, just excited. I felt so safe.

Treatment concerns

Dr Tim

Viv is a very attractive lady with beautiful eyes that were a little bit held back by what she describes as shadows under her eyes and some little lines. So we treated those with a combination of wrinkle relaxant and dermal filler, and got this fantastic result which you can see. We’ve also done a little bit of work on her top lip to soften lines and to create a little more definition around the cupids bow as well as revolumising a little around the chin and cheeks to give her that youthful fullness back.

Expert's comments

Tell us more about the results

The results are even better than I could have imagined. So fresh, so natural. Just a fresher, plumper me. I look flawless. The treatment under my eyes has taken years off me and I am so glad I had my lips done. And the best thing? No one could tell! Everyone says I look great, well, that my make-up looks great. But no one can tell that it’s filler or Botox as it looks so natural.

“ I’m so happy with the results, my face looks smoother, healthier and fresher!”

Having recently gone through a divorce I lost weight which resulted in me losing volume from my face. I wanted to look younger, or better for my age but I was concerned about it going wrong. You see good and bad results, but a lot of bad.

What made you go ahead?

I found out about SkinViva at my local salon – I use them so I trusted their opinion. I could also see the girls at the salon and what great results they had!

Karen's Story

What concerns did you have?

I wanted to look younger and replace the volume around my eyes and cheeks. I also like the idea of looking more youthful all over, rather than one area being noticeably treated.

The treatment experience

As soon as I met the SkinViva doctor any worries I had were taken away. It was clear they are real experts at what they do, which is very important to me. The doctor was lovely, and put me at ease. He was very knowledgeable and confident. The clinic was very nice and I felt very relaxed and welcomed. He used an anaesthetic cream so I could hardly feel a thing.

Treatment concerns

Dr Sharan

Karen has a lot of character in her face, and also has a lovely warm smile which we wanted to protect. She has a lot of volume loss around her eyes, chin and cheeks. What we did with her treatment was gently soften frown lines wtih anti-ageing injections and revolumise around the eyes, cheeks and chin using dermal filler. This has highlighted her natural beauty, whilst preserving her character.

Expert's comments

I’m so pleased with the results, I feel so happy my face looks smoother, healthier and fresh. Everyone keeps saying to me “you look well” or “your skin looks nice”. It’s great that people can instantly tell I look better but they don’t realise I’ve had botox and dermal fillers because the results look so natural – it takes real expertise to achieve that! Anyway, I feel great!

“My husband says I look 10 years younger”

Although I have been interested in these treatments for a long time, I was worried about allergic reactions and the results. In the end my sister and her friends had treatment with SkinViva and told me how good they are. I could also see for myself the results were brilliant!

What made you go ahead?

When I spoke with the SkinViva doctor, he seemed so much more knowledgeable than the other companies I’d spoken to, his knowledge was amazing and I really trusted him. He spent time reassuring me and explaining things to me in detail and answered all my questions. Although not required, he did a patch test to reassure me I was not allergic to the products.

Karrie's Story

What concerns did you have?

I have thin skin and was concerned with fine lines especially around my eyes and frown lines. I just wanted to look fresher, not different.

The treatment experience

Before the treatment I was excited but apprehensive. As soon as I was with the doctor I was put at ease, and the treatment was much more comfortable than I expected. It helped that the doctor was really easy to talk to.

Treatment concerns

Dr Tim

Karrie is a beautiful canvas to work with, she had some early signs of ageing particularly around her eyes, a few shadows around her mid face as well as very subtle loss of definition of her lips and volume loss around her chin. She also had a subtle frown line, which sometimes made it look like she was frowning when she wasn’t.

In terms of her treatment I did some subtle revolumisation of her cheeks and chin, which helped lift the mid shadow on the corner of her nose; by treating the frown line she also got a lovely, subtle eyebrow lift. By adding a bit of definition to the lips, we’ve increased the show of the cupid’s bow. Particularly I think it was the shadows around the eyes that made the big difference to highlight her natural beauty.

I’m so pleased with the results – I’ve had so many compliments. I still look natural, but so fresh. Friends who told me not to have the treatment have now booked in after seeing me! I feel so much more confident and happy.

At first my husband said “What are you having that done for?”
Now he says I look 10 years younger! He can see that it has not changed me, I just look fresher.
