MADE OVER BY MATTY

Our beauty ed­i­tor Elise Wil­son goes un­der the nee­dle with the Real House­wives star

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Beauty -

S eek­ing eter­nal youth and skin per­fec­tion, I en­listed the help of beauty ex­pert Matty Sa­maei of The Real House­wives Of Syd­ney. Here’s what hap­pened…

LIPS

I’m a huge fan of lip­stick. Matty sug­gested I fur­ther en­hance my pout, even up my top-bot­tom lip ra­tio and crisp up my mouth edges. My lips were numbed with a top­i­cal cream, then Matty made small, del­i­cate in­jec­tions us­ing a hyaluronic acid filler – with in­stant re­sults. My pout did swell slightly and I had a small up­per-lip bruise, cov­er­able with makeup. COST: from $400

LINES

My fine lines aren’t bad, but I’ve been con­scious of them for a few years, es­pe­cially ones around my eyes. Matty said an in­jectable mus­cle re­laxer was a great op­tion. “It’s one of my favourite pro­ce­dures be­cause the dosage of the drug can be pre­cisely mon­i­tored, mean­ing I can do a treat­ment that doesn’t ‘freeze’ my clients’ faces and it works fast.” COST: from $300

SKIN

For me, skin dull­ness is a con­cern so Matty in­sisted I have a mi­cro­der­mabra­sion fa­cial, liken­ing it to vac­u­um­ing a car. I was hes­i­tant, but it was re­lax­ing, and sat­is­fy­ing to see nas­ties sucked from my blocked pores. Down­time was min­i­mal – just a slight red­ness, fad­ing quickly. COST: $150

FOR FIRM­NESS

I wasn’t sure I needed the Re-firme skin tight­en­ing around my jaw­line and neck, but Matty as­sured me it would pre­vent sag­ging skin later on. The ra­diofre­quency heated deeper skin lay­ers, stim­u­lat­ing and help­ing to re­build col­la­gen. The ma­chine felt like a rub­ber band flick­ing my skin, but pain was a mere three out of 10 – so more than bear­able. COST: $450
