As public interest / curiosity increases hand in hand with the trend for minor cosmetic procedures, is today’s society accepting more readily as the norm, an undertaking which was once thought of as extreme, impracticable and vain and revolutionised it into a benchmark for modern day living?
In my quest to find out, I accepted an invite to Sculpta Clinic in Edinburgh’s New Town; a satellite clinic currently supported by well established practices in Glasgow and London’s Harley Street who promote a range of pioneering new cosmetic and aesthetic treatments. My initial and, in my opinion, understandable, apprehension was diminished slightly upon learning the celebrious address; I was appeased and comforted that only an eminent establishment could possibly reside on Heriot Row; compensating, in some part, for my shameful ignorance and lack of research into cosmetic procedural ethics.
My laid back approach, shocking even me, did abate somewhat in the days leading up to my “procedure” upon realisation of which, I undertook some hasty online research and was comforted once again by the positive reports of both the clinic and procedure (not too shiny as would be interpreted as false and unbelievable) and boosted by the knowledge that there were no known adverse side effects and results were good.
Cue treatment day, following a thankfully very busy working period with no time to contemplate – am I making more of this than necessary, after all, a large proportion of patients undertake such procedures in working lunch hours, yet I have cleared the diary for the following day – I am introduced to Sculpta by the Clinical Director who, emanating calm and knowledge, immediately puts me at ease with his relaxed explanation of procedures and complete dedication to this appointment. No hurried GP consultation, nor, rather importantly, any hard-sell but an extremely professional concentration on any queries, worries and expectations I may have and a realistic opinion of results.
Treatment day + 1 and although the results are still a work in progress, I can see clear improvements and am constantly checking the mirror, amazed at how easily I became one of the trend and slightly shocked at how readily I have been converted by one simple, yet revolutionary treatment.
The results are good and better than I was led to expect, surpassing my hopes and drawing me back for more….? Probably, after taking the few weeks sabbatical as recommended to me, I shall indeed be tempted to return to satisfy more growing interest and….why not?
I debated with myself as to the integrity of putting such a visit onto my site and feel almost another category would be beneficial however my task is to write about positive experiences within Scotland, no matter which sector and I hope at least some followers benefit from my experiences here.
