Don’t lose face on your wedding day!

This summer many women will have watched the likes of Love Island and TOWIE and been inspired by the perfect pouts and brows galore to try an aesthetic procedure. As these kind of procedures become increasingly mainstream, it’s easy to forget that they are treatments designed to change your face and therefore must be taken seriously! 

So, while a bargain price tag for a procedure may entice you initially, please remember the old adage ‘if something sounds too good to be true… then it probably is!’ Cheaper price tags often mean poor patient care, low quality products and a severe lack of attention to safety policies and procedures, not to mention the cost of any corrective work required after a bad procedure.
