Looking in the bathroom mirror one morning in the harsh day light I realised despite spending quite a large amount of money on expensive face and eye creams, and having a fairly structured facial care regime, the ageing process was definitely catching up on my face.
Having the consultation with Dr. Holmes was enlightening and we discussed some treatment options. I was given some patient information literature to read and went away to think about it.
I was very nervous about having Botox injected into my face as I had read in magazines about the side-effects of a badly placed injection performed by inexperienced and unlicensed practitioners that could possibly lead to complications.
Dr. Holmes is totally professional and qualified in this specialist field and I had total confidence in him. I signed a consent form to say that I understood the procedure and the risks were explained to me. I felt reassured throughout the procedure and he explained everything before he did the injections.
Firstly I had an anaesthetic cream put on my forehead and to the side of my face which was left on for about 20 minutes; it felt cool and gently numbed the areas to be injected.
I then lay down on the couch, wearing a headband to keep the hair off my face. Dr. Holmes said I may feel some pressure when the injection went into my skin but it was a pain free procedure.
I was informed by Dr. Holmes that I could go about my normal activities but to avoid alcohol that evening. I had a tiny bruise appear on my forehead that I could easily cover with make up.
I would highly recommend this procedure with Dr. Holmes and I am truly thrilled with the result and everyone I know has told me well I look, which makes me feel amazing. Thank you Dr. Holmes.
