“I grew up really envious of my mum’s gorgeous lips-mine were thin and unnoticeable in comparison. So when I read about fillers in a magazine, I knew I wanted to try them.
I went along to a local dentist who also offered cosmetic procedures and had my lips injected with collagen. But I wasn't happy with the results-instead of looking sexy and plump, they just looked unnatural.
I made it my mission to find an experienced doctor to correct them well and finally I found an amazing surgeon in London, Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi. He warned me I was quite young to be getting into the habit of using fillers, but I insisted that he helped m out.
At 23, I asked Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi to also give me Anti-Wrinkle Injections. I was concerned about my frown lines-I loved skiing and cycling and I thought the sun had damaged my skin –and felt I needed to correct the lines between my eyebrows and the crows’ feet around my eyes.
The first dose of Anti-Wrinkle Injections lasted for four months. I loved my new frown-free forehead so when I saw the first wrinkle return, I went straight back to the doctor for more.
Since then I have had 5 sets of lip injections and 9 doses of Anti-Wrinkle Injections. I have spent more than £3,500 on treatments and I can’t see the cycle ever stopping.
The problem is that once I’d started the injections, I didn’t want to stop. In some ways I wish I’d waited until I was older. As my features are so flawless now, some people do think that I am older than 25.They assume I must be older to have needed so much work!
I keep my Anti-Wrinkle Injections habit secret from my boyfriend. I know that once I tell him about it, he’ll start looking for lines and that worries me. My parents aren’t happy as they loved me just the way I was. But Anti-Wrinkle Injections is a part of me now and I can’t see myself stopping soon.”
