Find out how Jacquie Beltrao got on with her Lower Face & Neck Lift with Harley Street Skin's very own Dr Hagen Schumacher
We're fortunate to have worked with many faces in our time - including a few you might recognise. We wanted to check in with some of our favourites to hear all about their Harley Street Skin experiences. That way, you're able to approach your own personal journey with a little bit more confidence. How does that sound?
Here's what former Olympic gymnast turned Sky News broadcaster, Jacquie Beltrao, had to say about her Lower Face & Neck Lift with the supremely talented Dr Schumacher...
It has been a slow-burner, but I suppose the real catalyst was when I was diagnosed back in 2013 [Jacquie battled breast cancer, successfully reaching remission in January of 2017].
I was very unwell back then. As you can imagine, that kind of thing truly changes a person and I just developed a real f***-it attitude. I used to worry, be self-conscious, get stressed about work… I’m different now.
I decided that if there was something I wanted to do, I was going to go out and make it happen.
I was, and am, so lucky to have beaten this and so I didn't want to let any opportunities pass me by.
I would have done it sooner if I hadn't been so busy living it up! [laughs]
A friend of mine has been using the clinic for years - she swears by them. Once I'd met with Lesley and Dr Schumacher I was pretty sold too. By that point I was just really excited to get going.
I'm delighted actually.
I think most women notice little things about their appearance that could use a helping hand as they age.
Obviously being in a sports-related field, fitness and wellbeing is a huge part of my life and I'm constantly surrounded by people that are at their physical peak, so it does make you feel a little conscious of the whole ageing thing.
I keep in the best shape I can, but there are some things that exercise just can't fix. I noticed I was losing a bit of the tautness of the jawline, and some of the volume in my cheeks. I just felt I looked a bit tired.
All of these little bits and pieces are of course massively amplified when on television, too, so I decided to take the bull by the horns and see what could be done.
I was a little bit apprehensive on the day.
Generally, things don't tend to scare me that much any more - after everything that my family and I went through medically, but yes, I was a little anxious. Having said that, Dr Schumacher was incredibly composed - unshakable actually.
He came by to say good morning and the moment I saw him I knew I had nothing to worry about.
I absolutely love Lesley, too! I had my first chat about undergoing treatment with Lesley, and she has been a fantastic support throughout the whole process.
I think I'm just a little bit more uninhibited. My Daughter Amelia loves a good Instagram photo, and before having this done, I'd be quite insistent on some kind of soft-focus filter or blurring tool used on anything with me in it [laughs]. Now it doesn't bother me in the slightest. I'm very happy to go au natural!
I would say that life is for living and if you are being held back by something, no matter how small, I think it's really worth taking action or at least getting a second opinion.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not necessarily saying jump straight into something drastic, but if there are all of these fantastic tools at our disposal then I don't see anything wrong with taking advantage of them in the interest of self-confidence.
Oh, you can count on it.
