Everyone expects their appearance to change as they grow older, and while there is a general rise in self-esteem during middle age, for some, the desire to retain a more youthful look does not fade over the years. For these people, research suggests that ‘ageism’ may have something to do with it. There are two commonly held truths… which might surprise you…. 

FIRST Ageism increases the risk of psychological distress and problems with physical health. 

AND SECOND Many cosmetic patients seek anti-aging procedures due to work-related age discrimination and feelings of alienation from ageism generally. When physical changes lead to reduced confidence for people who prefer to look younger….. it can affect how people interact with life. 

Today's guest, clinical nurse, and dermal therapist, Rowena Clayton, will … help us understand the cosmetic enhancement industry, dispel myths regarding cosmetic injectables, and shed light on the reasons why people turn to cosmetic procedures.

How Rowena Started 

After being a clinical nurse in Cardiothoracic for 16 years, life changes demanded a change of direction! Rowena moved into cosmetic nursing 4 years ago and started her own business because her values didn’t align with the ‘big corporates’. She wanted to be able to tailor treatments to clients' needs, working personally with each individual to achieve optimal results. Rowena says that every skin has different needs and being a sole trader gives me the ability and autonomy to custom-build each service to your requirements. The key to a refreshed and youthful look is to keep it natural, to rejuvenate and enhance what makes you,.. you. Every piece of equipment she uses, each product she recommends, has been chosen for your skin needs to provide a results driven, exceptional outcome.
