Medical aesthetic treatments can achieve much more than merely improving the physical appearance of a person; they can also have significant psychological benefits. Some people can feel dissatisfied with their natural appearance, something that can contribute to low self-esteem and depression. Often, undergoing even the most subtle treatment can give a patient a confidence boost. Natural enhancement is the primary goal, which can restore self-confidence and self-esteem.
“A Fresh Start”
The most common feedback Miss Chantrey receives from her patients is how ‘revitalised’, ‘fresh’ and ‘young’ the treatments make them feel and look, and how they often receive compliments from partners, friends and colleagues.
The physical benefits of less invasive treatments, such as Botox and Dermal Fillers, and more complex procedures, such as Vaser Liposuction, can contribute greatly to one’s psychological health. The administration of Botox to the frown, for example, has been linked to reducing depression in recent studies. In general, a more youthful appearance or a more sculpted figure can signal a fresh start for a patient, encouraging them to embrace a change of lifestyle, by quitting smoking or adopting a healthier diet, and by taking more time to look after their body and mind.
Those who suffer from acne and burns scarring know how damaging it can be to one’s self-esteem. Treatments such as Dermapen, Dermaroller, Dermal Fillers and Chemical Peels, as well as specialist skincare products, are designed to reduce the appearance of scars and pigmentation. Over time, these patients can feel less self-conscious and display a new-found confidence in their appearance.
Many of Miss Chantrey’s patients say that as a direct result of undergoing these treatments, they feel more confident in social situations, relationships, and more empowered and able to accomplish their goals in the workplace. They experience an overall improvement in quality-of-life satisfaction.
While there are many studies that illustrate the physical and psychological benefits of medical aesthetics treatments, it is important for patients to have a thorough understanding of the treatment they are about to undergo, and realistic expectations of the likely outcome. Miss Chantrey specialises in full assessment to restore a subtle, youthful appearance. All treatments performed by Miss Chantrey are to protect, maintain, improve and preserve the physical and mental wellbeing of her patients.
