A few words from Anna…
When I started my training at a top medical clinic based in Harley Street in London, I had no idea what to expect. At the time I only told my best friend and my husband that I was going to undertake further qualifications in aesthetic medicine. When I booked my course I made sure that I was on the model list as I wanted to know exactly how it felt and to understand the process for my future clients. I was very nervous but also very excited!
I had chatted with a few of my girlfriends before about having anti-wrinkle injections and fillers but we always thought that it was reserved for the very rich and we were also sure we would know if someone had had it; how wrong we were …..
So my first contact with aesthetic medicine was in my training. Within hours of the lectures I knew I was going to work in the industry. I absolutely loved watching and learning how to create certain looks and the thought of being able to achieve a natural enhanced image for someone was fascinating. This is what drew me into this business. I quickly realised that I wanted to help people feel great about themselves and increase their confidence by using amazing products that could enhance and subtly improve upon their natural looks.
Since my training I haven’t stopped learning about and researching new products and services which I can add to my business. They have to be authentic, affordable and of course above all they must work. I have also learnt over the years that skin plays an enormous part in our overall health and look. My skin was not cared for at all before I started injectables; foolishly I thought that they were the answer to everything but I soon discovered that understanding my skin and caring for it daily went hand in hand with having injectables. I decided after working alongside several skin cancer doctors and having developed a skin cancer myself, that I would undertake further training in carrying out skin checks and educating and informing clients about the importance of having regular skin checks. This area of medicine is so important in this country especially in Queensland with melanomas on the rise. Fortunately however, if spotted early the treatment for skin cancers is very successful. I am not entirely happy with my skin but it’s so much fitter that it once was and I always wear SPF 30 plus everyday now, not just on my face but my neck, décolletage and hands.
After years of speaking with men and women about their skin problems and concerns, one particular issue which regularly arose that I have also experienced myself is excess skin and loosening around the eye area.
In April 2016, I opted for a surgical blepharoplasty and ended up with injections, stitches and bruising which lasted for weeks. I also developed an infection in both eyes. Fortunately I worked for a GP surgery and was able to get on top of it pretty quickly. However I have always wanted to find an alternative to surgery for this troublesome area. I’m still not happy with the skin under my eyes and I was so delighted to find my friend back In the UK had found the perfect answer – the JETT Plasma Lift. This machine is going to revolutionise the way people deal with this common problem. I am very proud to be the first practitioner to offer this treatment in Australia. It is currently winning awards in Europe and is a very popular alternative to undergoing surgery. Not only is it less painful, there is also less downtime, minimal risk and it’s much more affordable.
I hope that I am able to help many more people achieve their desired look in the months and years to come and that all my clients receive a Supreme Skin Solution!
I look forward to seeing you soon.
