Slide Hi Helena,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for my latest treatment, the results as usual are fantastic and I don’t think I will require my check up this time as everything looks brilliant. It is always such a pleasure coming to see you at your clinic and I know I am never going to be disappointed with the results. Once again I am happy with my frown free forehead.

Thank you.

Slide Dear Helena,

I wanted to thank you for the treatments I had last week, as always I am so pleased with results and feel much more confident once again! I am moving to London this weekend but will be back at Christmas so will make an appointment nearer the time to have my next treatment of Botox and fillers. My mum is now considering having something done (she who has been totally against anything in the past) as she is so impressed with the work you have done and how natural it looks in comparison to some other people she has seen!

Best Wishes

Miss L – Edinburgh
Slide I found Helena to be honest (very important) about treatments and expectations, very professional and extremely helpful – never over sells. The care makes you feel special and cared for but also in very safe hands – she really listens to the results you would like and any concerns you have.

Slide Dear Helena,

Well, the wedding is all over now and the day was just magical for all. I can tell you I felt the best ever. The confidence I had from knowing my face looked good and healthy again was just wonderful. I cannot thank you enough. I look forward to seeing you in the Autumn.

kind regards
Slide “Thank you so much Helena, I knew when I saw your kind happy face on your web site that I had found the right person for my first experience with Botox and Fillers. It is two weeks since I had treatment and the compliments are great, I can’t imagine living without the treatments now”.
