The blurb

A few years ago, plastic surgery was not an option people would consider when looking at a personal flaw. Now it seems that more and more people are on the hunt for a tweak here, an enhancement there. Treatments can improve not only a person’s face but their confidence too, with no down time and done within an hour.

I was at Beyond MediSpa to try out the tear trough fillers—the space between your cheek and eye that can sometimes become slightly hollow—and to get some enhancement in my cheeks. After doing my research on Dr Wassim Taktouk, I was confident I was in safe hands.

The process

I was welcomed by Wassim who sat me down and studied my profile. I was open to hear suggestions instead of going in with an idea that might not be realistic—after some time he took me through how he could improve the structure of my face and balance my profile. Numbing cream was applied as we talked through the options, and Dr Wassim decided that Teoxane was the best product to use.

We went for PureSense Ultimate and PureSense Ultra Deep, which are designed for facial volume and work almost like scaffolding on the facial structure. A cannula was used and although I felt a small amount of pain, Dr Wassim was comforting and gentle in his approach; meticulous in stepping back and accessing the look.

The results

An hour later, I had a more balanced profile and cheek bones to die for, but the work is still subtle. I ended up with a couple of minor bruises but they faded after a day or two; I can see why these treatments are becoming more and more popular. I would be happy to return to Beyond Medispa and have already recommended Dr Wassim to friends!
