I have been having some form of minor treatments for over 30 years in 3 countries and I met Dr Benson at an international Aesthetic Medicine and Beauty Therapy trade show about 5 years ago. I was so impressed by the techniques she was using to create eyebrows (having none myself due to a medical condition) that I knew I wanted to see her privately.
Initially, she invited me to come as a model for one of her trainee students. I have had my eyebrows done numerous times and they were never quite right. Not only was the shape very wrong, but the colour and the stroke had blurred into a solid block. Helena spent a generous amount of time measuring my eye area and custom-blending a colour that she felt would ultimately fade (they always do) to a more natural-looking eyebrow. She took into consideration my skin tone, which also affects the final outcome of a particular shade. She applied the best numbing cream I have ever experienced, and believe me, I have suffered from many! Helena initially did most of the work, but she was able to turn over several "passes" to her student, who was very good. I felt confident, knowing she would step in if needed. After a couple of weeks, I was invited to come back for a review, and for a touch-up, which I did.
Since that time, Helena has also done my eyebrows at least twice (this is normal) and lip liner. This was not a case of merely doing what I asked, but going beyond by using her artistic and atheistic judgement to help balance what I already have without making me look artificial. Since that time, (and the clock keeps ticking!!) Helena has done a number of treatments for me. Most recently, I asked about having PRP (vampire facial) because I thought it would provide a fresh look. I knew I could trust her and working together, she made alternative suggestions that would have a better outcome while fitting that within my budget.
Over the course of a month, I did cheek filler, a thread lift, a touch of Aqualyx and Treatment for Wrinkles in an area that my other regular "Treatment for Wrinkles doctor" (to whom I have been loyal for 10 years), had told me would not work - between the eyes lines. Mine is not the Dreaded Elevenses (!!) but are horizontal. Contrary to what I had been told, Helena's work HAS helped those lines.
I intend to go back as soon as Covid restrictions permit, and I feel perfectly happy with everything I have had done. The clinic atmosphere is soothing and there is no question that I am being looked after at the highest standard. Helena's skills are extensive and she is constantly updating her state of the art equipment and techniques. I feel nurtured and listened to. I tend to I express my curiosity by chattering, and she has never made me feel that I have taken too much of her time.
Should you wish to talk to me about anything that Dr Benson has done for me, I will be happy to discuss. Just ask her for my details. I can recommend Helena with the highest confidence. You can tell when someone is passionate about their work. There are many doctors and therapists who are skilled, but they are not artists, and therein lies the difference. An artist strives for balance and knows when to stop. Helena has advised me NOT to do something that would not have helped me much but could have cost a lot - because it is clear she wants her clients/patients to be happy.
I have not listed any prices because these are variable and available on the website, but they are certainly well within the reason for the industry range.
