Verve Q & A — 5 minutes with Francesca who chats about her recent Ultherapy experience.



What made you decide to undergo an Ultherapy treatment?


I saw some amazing results on a close friend who looked so much tighter around her jaw line with noticeably less bagginess around her neck and chin area. And it wasn’t just the fact that her skin was definitely smoother, finer and more evenly toned, but her whole persona was more confident, and at ease, happier in fact — especially noticeable in larger gatherings.


A few clinics in Auckland offer Ultherapy. Why did you choose Medihealth Aesthetics in Remuera?


Believe me — I did my research, and Medihealth Aesthetics came up trumps. Being conveniently located just a stone’s throw from my Newmarket office, with plenty of parking onsite was a definite plus.


Nikki Blackley, who runs this clinic, is a qualified and experienced medical professional with years of in-depth exposure to cosmetic medical procedures, both invasive and non-invasive.


Being a little apprehensive about the treatment I contacted Medihealth Aesthetics ahead of time with a barrage of questions. Nikki was happy to meet with me to discuss the procedure, no strings attached. At all times her approach was understanding and empathetic, calm and focused. Very quickly I felt confident that she was the best person for the job.


Were you scared?


I was. I had read some things online that were a bit upsetting, and my imagination quickly took over. Thoughts of irritating prickling, hot, burnt smelling skin, bruising and tenderness reigned — so I canceled.


Nikki being the cool, collected lady that she is, did not bat an eyelid. Her reply to my cowardly email was sweet and understanding. She said that it was absolutely no problem, and that if and when I was ready to get hold of her again.


A week later, I was ready.


So I booked in with Nikki once again, and this time I kept my appointment.


How was the treatment?


The treatment was over before I knew it, and while there was the slightest discomfort every now and then, it was absolutely nothing to worry about. Nikki explained what she was doing every step of the way, and less than an hour later I could already feel the benefits. The skin on my face felt slightly tighter, and a little more moisturised.


Initial effects of Ultherapy have way exceeded my expectations, but as it is a fact that the full effects take 60-90 days to become apparent, I am gleefully looking forward to the future benefits and fabulous results of my Ultherapy treatment.
