The commonest reason people consult Dr Imaan is due to persistent signs of ageing as early as our mid- late 20s, but more typically, in our 30s and beyond.
There is usually a window in our 30s and early 40s when the best results can be achieved non surgically though it is never too late to begin, if you can be realistic about your expectations - the longer you leave it, the more time, effort and money it will take to achieve results.
By the time we see a new patient with persistent signs of ageing that bother them, there’s a lot that’s been occurring in the background that cannot be fixed with some anti wrinkle treatment or some cheek or tear trough fillers.
What the patient sees is just the tip of the iceberg with a lot underneath that needs correction for balance and best results. Failure to recognise and understand this risks the overfilled, pillowface syndrome we see everywhere.
This is why, at Skin Essentials, we offer only one main option for medical aesthetics aimed at ageing well: our signature full face approach.
We don’t offer “just” anti wrinkle treatments, or some lip or cheek fillers.
We don’t offer treatment packages nor syringes by the ml.
If we agree to work together, we agree to work exclusively with Dr Imaan undertaking a comprehensive treatment plan and implementing it with your consent and full commitment in clinic.
What does the Initial Consultation address?
The detailed initial consultation with Dr Imaan gives you a true understanding of how the ageing process affects you, based on your age, genetics and lifestyle choices and what she can realistically do to help address these changes that distress you before it’s too late.
This takes time, which is why the initial consultation is so important and a time for you to sit with Dr Imaan to plan your rejuvenation path over the coming 3-9 months depending on what’s needed as well as how much you can expect to spend during this time to allow you to make an informed decision, roughly divided into three main tiers based on the concerns we commonly see, discussed here.
Dr Imaan focuses primarily on full face rejuvenation via non surgical and minimally invasive procedures which takes time, diligence and investment on your part so you don’t end up looking “done”, “fake” or “wrong”.
How much can I expect to spend on FFR?
The initial cost varies depending on whether it is mainly maintenance/ prevention in a younger face or restoration and correction of multiple concerns in an older face that is not “surgery only”.
For ease of patient understanding, we have divided the FFR process into 3 tiers:
Patients who decide to begin can expect to spend 50% of the quoted cost over the first 3-6 months over 3-4 appointments then a slower investment of the remaining 50% over the remaining 6 months to get to maintenance.
At maintenance, we’d still expect to see you 3-4 times a year for best results for your investment. Less frequent appointments than this may affect your results and investment as the ageing process will continue regardless.
The vast majority of examples of poor medical aesthetics we see are in large part due to the unregulated industry and inexperienced injectors competing on price. Good results should be imperceptible and are likely missed as a result because patients look like they’ve had nothing done, just really good “for their age”.
Our clinic aesthetic is subtle, understated, timeless and classic rather than in your face. Everything is harmonious and flows.
As Dr Imaan likes to say, “everyone will notice but no one will know” unless you choose to tell them.
At Skin Essentials we pride ourselves on our directness and our clarity around how we work including what we expect from you at minimum so you can make an informed decision about starting the consultation process for best results to help you address your concerns now and well into the future.
We occasionally see many people who have left it too late, such that, when they finally come in, the cost to fix everything would be significant, and most likely would involve surgery.
So our advice to all our patients, if they are keen to age well, is to start early, and to commit to regular treatments with a trusted clinic and clinician, to hold you accountable sooner than later.
Dr Imaan is firm on the importance of this - 80% of the success or failure of your treatments is dependent on you and your commitment to showing up as advised, booking your next series of appointments and sticking to those dates at any cost if they are time sensitive until you are at maintenance, when cost is lower and time between treatments more spaced out.
Over time, these treatments will teach you the habits of discipline and will stand you in good stead, so that as ageing-related changes accelerate, you won’t feel it in your wallet as much as you might if you had done nothing and began at a later stage.
That aside, in order for us to consider full face rejuvenation on anyone, we strongly advise and recommend some basics be in place, without which, everything else is moot:
While these basics are being implemented or in place, we can proceed with restoring what time and nature has taken away using multiple modalities, outlined below agreed to in your initial consultation with Dr Imaan.
Common complaints I hear of when meeting patients for the first time, whether new to medical aesthetics or new to me, is issues with their anti wrinkle dose and "wearing off too quickly". So it bears repeating - anti wrinkle treatments work by paralysing the nerves that send signals to the muscles in your face […]
