Q&A with Toni
What does ageing mean to you?
With the exponential rise in social media, we can have a disillusioned view on how we should look at any age. Being healthy, and having a healthy approach to how we age is key, remembering to embrace our uniqueness and learning to be less self-critical.
What is your favourite part of your role at WY?
Working with such a diverse, caring and knowledgeable team, as I know that every patient will be looked after throughout their journey with us, and not just for the period of time they are present with me.
What do you think is the next big trend in skin and beauty?
I generally hate trends as I feel they can be misplaced in Aesthetics, particularly those of the last decade whereby overfilling seemed commonplace. So I’ve been very happy to see this trend coming to an end, and a growing enthusiastic approach to retaining natural individuality and optimising skincare. Microtox, Profhilo and mesotherapy all becoming much more popular.
What is one tweak you have made to your well-being routine which has made a difference in the last year?
For many years I’ve had an on/off relationship with Vitamin A products as it can take such a long time for my skin to adjust. Lockdown gave me the time and patience to persist, and I can finally apply Retinols without dreading the redness and flaking (it did take a few months!).
What are some tweaks you have made to your well-being routine that has made a big difference in the last year?
I have thin, pale Irish skin, easily prone to dryness and fine lines. I now regularly have Profhilo and love the plump, healthy appearance it gives my skin. I also only every use hyperdilute microtox as facial movement and expression are very important to me.
What are your favourite things to do when you are not in clinic?
I’m extremely creative and love anatomy, so spend much of my time working on illustrations, videos and 3D animations. Years ago I also took a sabbatical and studied ceramics, buying a wheel and kiln from ebay. Both still very much used to this day.
