Profession: Property Developer
Treatment: Sub Q
I couldn’t believe the difference – I had cheeks and definition just like the movie stars and ones that I had lost 10 years ago.
Why I Started – I have had over the years a number of non surgical procedures such as Botox filers which had always produced fantastic subtle results – so much so I was often mistaken for my daughter’s sister. Over the last two years I had noticed that I looked heavier around my lips and jowl areas and went to APT for advice.
The Procedure – My doctor Tracey Bell explained that the heaviness and jowls were due to the fact that as we age there is a redistribution of fat and the skin becomes more lax. She explained that although I had received fillers in the past I would require a thicker natural filler producing roundness, firmness and a natural appearance within the cheek area.
I was given information, shown previous cases completed by APT and even had the opportunity to speak to the previous patient who had undergone the same treatment with Bell two weeks ago – she looked GREAT. I went home discussed the treatment with my husband and booked my appointment.
On the day of the appointment the nurse applied some numbing cream and the gave me an injection in the cheek area that numbed both sides of my face. After that I felt nothing at all during the procedure although the Cannula felt funny as I could sense it beneath my cheek as the product was placed. The right cheek was done first followed by the left and the whole procedure took less than 30 minutes. Two small steri strips were placed over the two small incisions but no stitches were needed.
After the treatment I was pleased to find minimal bruising and minimal pain. I was given very strict instructions to sleep on my back, not to massage the area and not to apply pressure directly in case the material moved. 72 hours later I removed the steri strips and was back to normal in two weeks.
I was reviewed two weeks later and could not believe the before and after pictures. Bell explained that I could add to the volume if I wished but I was happy with the lift produced. The results should last 12 months – something I’m happy with and something my husband can’t believe. So much so he’s booked in with APT also.
The APT Says – SubQ is another fantastic armetarium to facial rejuvenation produced by Qmed and used by APT. Volumising of the cheek is the key to rejuvenation in the mid face producing a natural yet dramatic result. The patient must be aware that bruising can be a downside and sometimes we may need to add to the product.
Remember faces are not symmetrical. With a full consultation and assessment of the clients face Sub Q can be utilised in the correct clinical case in all age groups from either a slight enhancement of the cheek in the 20’s to a full restoration and lift of those in their later years. Sub Q produces dramatic natural results.
