Lisa Hawthorne’s Story
Lisa Hawthorne, 42, recently married her husband who is ten years her junior. But is she forty and feeling fantastic?
“My husband is in the Army and we are often invited to the Officer’s Mess for formal events. I feel so lucky to have such a handsome young man on my arm, however sometimes I feel like people notice the age difference. It makes me feel insecure. I get upset when I look in the mirror and the person looking back at me is not the young, confident woman that remains on the inside” Lisa explains.
“I’ve tried everything to keep myself looking young, from facials to expensive cosmetic creams, but at the end of the day, you can’t hide your age. I have fine lines around my eyes and mouth, where my skin has lost elasticity through dieting and age. My friend recommended going to see a specialist because I was feeling quite down, so I booked a consultation at sk:n. After a lengthily consultation, the Doctor recommended a course of Fillers
to replenish the lost collagen around my eyes and mouth.
“I was very nervous the first time around, I didn’t want to be left looking like a pin cushion! The doctor was very reassuring and took his time to explain the treatment, how it would feel and what kind of results to expect which really put my mind at ease. I asked him to use some anaesthetic cream just in case!
“I saw the results instantly; my face looked fuller and lifted. I could see my cheekbones and dimples which seemed to have disappeared years ago! And the best is yet to come because it takes up to five months to see the full benefit. I now have my old look back which has given me more confidence, especially when I’m out with my husband. He said that it’s made a real difference and can see how much happier I am now. sk:n’s moto is ‘less is more’ and it has taught me that if you stay on top of ageing, it only takes a few small tweaks to keep you looking good! I will certainly be back.”
