The latest episode of Dear Helen is here. This week we deal with a very delicate question from Lucy….

“I have just been looking through some of your photos of some of the eyebrows you have done I have just been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and I’m waiting for a date to start treatment obviously with me being so young losing my lashes and eyebrows are a big worry to me.

“I previously had my brows tattooed by a ‘professional’ local to my home, I carried out so much research on her and certainly didn’t go for the cheapest option with her however from the minute I left her salon I regretted my decision. I suffered a horse riding accident when I was 18 with left my face disfigured and unsymmetrical which is one of the reasons I originally wanted my brows tattooed I was sick of levelling things up with brow pencils and it running or smudging in the heat. After I visited her I was left with unsymmetrical brows that over time turned blue and were the wrong shape for face, not only did they look terrible it had such an impact on my confidence. I searched high and low for a clinic that offers correctional work or removal. After sending photos, most clinics came back to me to say that there was anything that could be done and I would need several sessions of laser removal as they were so blue and deep. However Helen answered my prayers and recommended that I have a consultation with her so that she could see them in the flesh. It was agreed that they were terrible; Helen didn’t hold back and said exactly what was wrong with them. Helen advised that it would be a long and possibly painful process but would do her best to work with them. I am due to get married this Saturday (9th Sept) and I really wanted perfect brows in time for my big day so I could look back at my photos and like what I seen, previously I would avoid photos at all costs. Laser removal started very soon after my consultation and not going to lie it wasn’t a pleasant experience, my face swelled like Quasimodo, the day after I looked like the twin sister of Hitch from the film and I really worried I had done the wrong thing however this only lasted a couple of days, I followed the instructions Helen gave me religiously and for the next laser session I had hardly any affects afterwards, and the next one was completely pain free and no after affects. All this worry and discomfort was so worth it when I visited Helen for the 5th time at the beginning of August to have my new brows put on. Wow what a difference, not only to my face but to my confidence and the way I feel about myself. Helen you are truly amazing and extremely talented professional that I would highly recommend to anyone I come across that is wanting semi-permanent make up. My brows are so close to perfect now you have worked with them, and I have no doubt after my top up session in a few weeks they will be even better than perfect. You really don’t understand the difference you have made; I can smile on my wedding photos this weekend and have every reason to smile. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for agreeing to treat me and putting up with all the daft questions and panic messages throughout the process. xxx” – Kayleigh’s Facebook Review

I Never Dreamed I’d Have Botox

I Never Dreamed I’d Have Botox 812 812 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Guest Blog Post : So I’m A 50 Something Professional Woman (I Never Dreamed I’d Have Botox!)

So. I’m a fifty-something professional woman. I’m a pretty low-maintenance, no daily make-up, casual clothes kind of person. And that’s fine. I’ve never really thought about it, to be honest.

But – because obviously there’s a but – as my fifties approached, I began to review my health and appearance. I come from a long line of… shall we say solidly-built women? In my family, we tend to thicken round the middle, broaden round the backside, pucker round the lips and eyes and grow hair in places hair didn’t ought to be. And nobody wants to end up looking like their mother, right? Right.

I started seeing Helen many years ago, for reversible standard beauty treatments. She used to shape my eyebrows, for example, and one afternoon the pair of us ended up in hysterics when she compared me (unflatteringly) to Dennis Healey. She wasn’t wrong! And nobody wants to end up looking like their father, either… (not that Dennis Healey is my father, you understand).

So a few years ago, I took the plunge and asked Helen to tattoo me some decent eyebrows. So that I had a proper shape to follow, and could just keep my own eyebrow hair trimmed (back to Dennis Healey again) and in shape. I was a bit nervous, as I have seen other tattooed brows that just end up making their face look like a bad drag queen. But I trusted Helen, so we went ahead and did it. She drew me a shape, showed me her colour matching proposal (my hair hasn’t been its natural colour for over 40 years, so we had to find something that matched a whole rainbow of potential shades) and off we went. The result was superb. It really lifted my face, and took years off me. So I went ahead and asked her to do my eyeliner. She was a bit surprised when I wanted it done in purple – apparently this isn’t a standard request! – but having checked I was in my right mind, we went ahead and did that, too. And that also looks fabulous. I’m not going to lie, it was sensitive, but it was well worth the very temporary discomfort.

Roll forwards a few years. As a youngster I had been a heavy smoker, and I have very, very dry skin. My job got more and more senior and complex, my forehead became more and more furrowed, and my upper lip folded itself uncharmingly into deep crevasses. I looked as though I had my mouth permanently clamped around a cigarette. Combined with that unfortunate hair growth gene of my mother’s and on a bad day, it was a seriously unfortunate look! I got in touch with Helen.

We thought long and hard, and she talked me through my options. She was incredibly reassuring and professional, and totally understood my reservations and misgivings. In the end, we decided on botox for the forehead and filler for the upper lip, which would plump it out and smooth out the wrinkles at the same time. I was really nervous about this – we’ve all seen the photos of Lesley Ash, and nobody wants that. But Helen took it slowly, talked me through what she was doing, and let me pause to check progress after every single injection. Her patience is really unparalleled!

So thanks to Helen I’ve hit my 50th year in better shape than I was in my 40th! I look younger, I feel less scowly and grumpy, and I am more confident. My partner is amazed at the change in my face and demeanour. And Dennis Healey is banished into the recess of dim and unfortunate memory!
