24 Sep Trying to get my sexy back – Treatment Journey – Pip Kelly
Monday 17th September
I received a very exciting and rather timely call from my beauty therapist Peta of Will and Peta Bondi Junction, regarding my luck of being the winning mum chosen to have a makeover to be revealed on the 16th of Oct at The Mama Club.
I had no idea of what that involved but imagined that she would do some complimentary, like a few facials and maybe a little Anti-wrinkle with the girls from Face Today and that would be about it.
Peta told me that Helen from Face Today Mediclinic would be calling to arrange a meeting as well. I Spoke to Helen who sounded lovely and we arranged to meet at the fabulous Mama’s Club in Bondi Junction on Thursday at 10am to go over what her side of the transformation would be about.
Thursday 20th September:
I work a few nights per week managing a busy office after hours, sometimes finishing as late as 2am. I had worked a late night on the Wednesday so didn’t think too much about the meeting and certainly hadn’t prepared for it as I would have liked to (a but if lippie would have been a good idea or even concealer) but I arrived and saw the stunning Will and Peta were there, along with Helen and Nicki from Face Today – all looking beautifully radiant, and a PHOTOGRAPHER!
I was a little unprepared for that, and when I was asked if I was here for the photoshoot, I said I hope not (could I look any worse!) but it seems I was and I was photographed in between Will and Nicki (two glamazons) and me, sleep deprived, no make up, feeling old and frumpy!
Before I knew it my exciting journey had begun with a bang!
Notes from appointments:
Monday 24th – Regen treatment:
Face Today Mediclinic
Went to face today’s stunning clinic in Chatswood and meet with my mentors for the journey – Wendy, Caz, Nicki and Helen.
Wendy is my woman! Yay, I really liked her straight away.
In fact everyone there is delightful. So there was no apprehension once I was there. Plus the injectors I meet we’re all RN’s which really made me happy. My mum was an nurse so I have complete faith!
We started by taking digital images of my face in this amazing machine, (Visia )The amount of uv damage was a real worry, I was quite shocked and have since covered up religiously with the Face Today sunscreen ‘PARASOL’.
I was then taken up to a lovely treatment room where I felt like a VIP. Robyn took my blood with ease. Best ever I think (I always have trouble with blood)
I couldn’t believe I was having this ‘VAMPIRE’ treatment, however I had prepared by reading the website and any other information available to me and the girls also informed me of all the benefits and talked me through the whole procedure. Robyn then separated it into plasma and put some numbing cream on my face, neck, decolletage and I sucked back copious amounts of happy gas. (felt great)
She then injected the plasma from my own blood into my face, neck and decolletage. It was relatively painless and I felt really comfortable during the treatment. It was definitely the most amount of injecting I have had done. I only ever experienced Anti-Wrinkle once. Loved it!
My face is a little swollen and bruised but I couldn’t wait to see the results.
