Journalist Ellen Johnson shares her ULTRAcel and dermal filler experience in Premier Magazine.
Where rejuvenation is just a light touch away
Multi-award winning Light Touch Clinic is at the forefront when it comes to new and innovative treatments. When founder Natalie Blakely established the clinic some eight years ago, her vision was to offer her clients the top treatments in the heart of Surrey.
One of the newest treatments at Light Touch is ULTRAcel. Being one of the first clinics in the UK to offer this revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment, Natalie and her team say that they are delighted with the results it achieves. Combining both radio frequency and ultrasound, ULTRAcel gives a deep and effective lift. With immediate results, this is one of the treatments which gets better over time with the best results being seen at around two to three months and lasting for around a year. Natalie offered to let me try it out for myself and I must say I have been very pleased with the outcome. The process itself is non-invasive, gentle and has a proven track record for achieving great results.
There is no downtime whatsoever and I was able to exercise that very evening which for me is important. I will admit to feeling slightly bruised around the chin area in particular but no pain, no gain as they say, and I have been delighted with the results from my ULTRAcel session. My neck looks and feels a lot smoother and generally my skin is more youthful. The surface feels tighter and more lifted and my profile more defined. I am amazed that so much can be achieved in just one treatment.
During my first meeting with Natalie she also suggested that a little light filler would help smooth out some of my age-related wrinkles and folds and help me feel and look rejuvenated. Now this is something I never thought I would want to do; growing old gracefully has always been my motto, BUT coming closer each day to a landmark birthday, I am starting to realise that a little help from a professional is no bad thing. The first consultation put my mind at rest. On meeting Natalie, you immediately realise that she is keen for her clients to improve and enhance their looks in a natural and gentle way. Her lovely aesthetic nurse Janine explained the clinic offers what the team refers to as a ‘makeunder’ rather than a makeover.
The treatment itself is slightly uncomfortable; it is needles after all, but the results are amazing. I feel that the combined treatment of ULTRAcel and a follow-up with some light filler have achieved really good results. I do feel more confident, I definitely look rejuvenated and most importantly I have had compliments all round. Not that I have let on, which is even more encouraging!
I cannot recommend Light Touch highly enough; the luxurious surroundings, the professional staff and practitioners and the level of expertise are second to none. The convenience of the clinic being right here in my home county is an added bonus
