Claire came in to see us at PHI Clinic after she noticed some sagging and signs of ageing, and wanted a subtle but effective way of treating these. Throughout her course of Botox and filler treatment, Claire had dermal fillers injected in three places, to reduce the appearance of jowls and smoker’s lines, as well as restoring volume to the cheeks. She also had Botox to smooth out forehead lines, and praised Dr Tapan Patel, our medical director, for the amazing results he achieved.
Our Chosen Brand Of Botox and Filler
Our chosen brand of dermal fillers is the Juvederm Vycross range by Allergan, which have a hyaluronic acid (HA) based formula. This base is a naturally occurring acid found in skin that can hold around 1000 times its own weight in water and contributes to the plumpness of skin, acting as a cushioning agent.
When introduced to the face via injection, dermal fillers can be used to volumise or revolumise specifically targeted areas for an anti-ageing effect, as well as having ongoing benefits for skin rejuvenation. This volumisation can also affect areas like the jowls, as it plumps the cheeks in order to lift the sagging skin on the jawline like a small, non-surgical facelift.
Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyses a specific muscle that moves to create lines and wrinkles on the skin above. When this muscle is inactive the lines and wrinkles smooth out, creating an even, wrinkle-free look to the skin, in Claire’s case, on her forehead.
Botox Filler Journey
Claire noticed the difference almost immediately, and said “Now, when I look in the mirror, I’m very confident, very happy, and that shows.” If you want to hear more of Claire’s story, you can watch her video on our YouTube channel, in which she describes her Botox and filler journey with us.
Our ethos at PHI is completely patient-centred, so you can be guaranteed that subtle, natural looking results will be achieved with every treatment.
