5 critical mistakes I see my clients make
NOT GETTING ENOUGH TREATMENT/DENYING THEIR INNER WISHES
I find that my clients are able to pluck up the courage to come and have their first dermal filler of threading session, but that is where their courage ends. Having just one treatments is probably the most determinal thing you can do when it comes to aesthetic treatments. Having just 1ml of filler or one thread on each side of your face is only going to give you a good result if your skin is still young and supple. And if you’ve read this far, I doubt you fall within this category.
Please understand, if you have mild or even severe signs of aging, having just one treatments is not going to make a noticeable difference. You might as well save your money.
NOT LOOKING AT WHOLE PICTURE
Focus on the bigger picture of your overall beauty, not just sagging here of folding there. The main goal for any aesthetic treatment is to improve the appearance of certain features. Our brain processes beauty as a set of visual patterns and there are certain patterns that the brain recognises as beautiful – these patterns are based on the visual proportions of a face that your brain calculates within a milisecond of looking at a person for the first time. Did you know what that the triangular area between the chin and eyes determines how old you look?
EQUALIZING ALL PRACTITIONERS/PRICE SHOPPING
Giving all practitioners equal weight and comparing them only on price value is a problem created by us as practitioners. We started giving patients “off the shelf” tratments using techniques we had learned in more “pff the shelf” training. Pretty soon we started fighting over each millilitre of filler.
This has commoditised our expertise and it’s important to recognise that one practitioner does not deliver the same results as another. As a potential client, of mine or of someone else, I encourage you to find someone who is a specialist in the kind of treatments that you require. Remember: A “Jack Of All Trades” is a master of non.
The final mistake I see my clients making is that they hop between treatments thinking that a single treatment can reverse all of their problems and restore their youth and beauty in one go. By being inconsistent with their treatments they lose the benefit of cumulative results. After all, you don’t get fit by running for five hours today but if you run for five minutes every day, eventually you will see results.
