“I wanted to prolong the ageing of my skin for as long as possible.”
28-year-old Tom Ellis is the owner of a busy hair salon in Cheshire. Having his own business means working long hours, as well as the associated stress, which he felt was prematurely ageing his skin and contributing to dark circles and fine lines beginning to set in around the eye area. Having always taken pride in his appearance, Tom wanted to do what he could to slow down the ageing process.
“I spend a lot of my time working,” begins Tom. “I’m always on my feet at the salon, and my days are spent looking after other people and improving their confidence. It can be tiring work, and I felt that this was beginning to impact my own appearance.
“I kind of just wanted to fight the ageing process, I didn’t want to drastically change my appearance that much; I wanted to kind of tweak little bits and prolong the ageing of my skin for as long as possible.
“There are lots of mirrors in the salon, and when you catch yourself them, sometimes you do just think, ‘wow, I look really tired’. I thought fillers might be able to help with that and just give me an overall fresher look.
“People have said I look a lot less exhausted.”
“I had some filler put into the fine lines under my eyes to get rid of the dark circles and to prevent those fine lines becoming any heavier or deeper over time. Then some above my lip in my laughter lines.
“I didn’t have any bruising or swelling, no pain or anything like that, it was all really straight forward.
“People have commented that I look a lot fresher faced. I would definitely say that people have said I look less exhausted around the eye area, which is always nice to hear. I was conscious that I didn’t want to walk out looking like a completely different person. And I didn’t want every single person that had seen me before to comment. I can notice the changes and that has made me feel a lot better about myself.
“I would definitely have more treatments done in the future. One of the main things I discussed with the clinician on this occasion was the laughter lines above my mouth. It is an area I’d probably not thought about before, but after hearing the thoughts of the practitioner it’s definitely something I’d consider in the future.
