‘Tis the season I am grateful for you
During this busy season, I always make the time to reflect on the last year. In 2018, Skin Deep Aesthetics relocated from downtown to our new digs on Henderson Highway. I am thrilled to say that almost all my clients who work downtown have stayed with me. They said it’s because they love my work and the relationship we have built. Every day I feel honoured that my clients trust me to enhance their natural beauty with cosmetic procedures. I take that responsibility seriously—and I’ll let you in on a few of my secrets.
When you first came to see me, you may recall that I asked, “What brought you here?” I want to know if the decision to try Botox or fillers is a researched decision or a reactionary one. Some women tell me that their kids say they look angry or disapproving all the time (darn furrow lines!) . Others tell me that they’ve just come out of a marriage and they want to enter the dating scene looking their best. Others want to take preventative steps so they’ll never have to go under the knife.
Understanding my clients’ reasons for seeking treatment helps me to determine the best course of action for each woman or man. Before we come up with a plan for treatment, I spend time watching you talk and look at photographs of you at different ages. My goal is to always make you look like the best version of yourself, not like someone else.
In terms of industry trends, I am thrilled that 2018 ushered in the end of the over-the-top “done” look—and I can’t see it coming back. Cosmetic injectables have come a long way--the results are now subtle and natural. You want to hear, “You look so fresh and relaxed” or “You look great."
I am thrilled with all the positive feedback I have received over the last year. One client told me her friends say, “How is it you just get more beautiful with age?” Another said, “People tell me I’ve never looked better.” That’s what you and I both want to hear!
Over the last year, I have posted blogs about treatment options, including microinjections, Belkyra, Botox, Jessner peels for melasma, and blogs about what you can do to look and feel your best. Beauty is more than skin deep—it’s about being healthy and taking care of yourself.
I hope you are making the time to take care of yourself during this harried time of year. I want to thank you for making me a part of your self-care regimen and I am excited about helping you to look and feel your best in 2019! It is an honour and a privilege to have you as a client.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
