Spa Review: Dr Preema London
GLAMOUR travels to get pampered…The Treatment: Dr Preema’s Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment.
Call it what you like, but at some point in your life, you may feel you want a little something to help banish wrinkles – at least for a special occasion. I got married when I was just shy of 40, and after 3 children, wanted to find a way to disguise some of the ‘wisdom’ my face had accrued from over 10 years of not really much sleep. A friend recommended I get in touch with Dr Preema’s clinic who do a whole host of treatments – wrinkle relaxing being one of them.
The treatment involves injecting muscle relaxing treatments into specific areas of the body. I opted for a couple of tiny areas on my browline (also known as a massive great big furrowed brow). Dr Preema spent a good deal of time pre-treatment talking about my skin, my routines, what I was hoping to get from the treatments and what was the best course of action. When it got down to the nitty-gritty and the needle came out – I was relieved to see it was tiny and I genuinely didn’t feel it go in or out.
The verdict? The botox takes a week or so to really kick in so I made sure I had plenty of time in the lead up to my wedding day. As the wrinkles dissolved and my new wrinkle free forehead emerged I was pleased as punch.
Dr Preema made me feel so relaxed I think it really helped with any nerves I may have had – the best pair of hands for a first time.
