Some of the main concerns patients have with ageing include skin laxity, volume loss and lack of structure. As we age, these factors become more prominent, and can make us look tired and withdrawn.
These indications are easily treatable with natural, HA based dermal fillers, which work to reapply structure, elevating and rejuvenating the facial features. They are often used in conjunction with botulinum toxin, which help prevent you from overworking your muscles, deepening and creating lines and wrinkles.Book consultation
The MD Codes™ are a series of strategic, formulated injection points, which allow for a subtle and natural-looking result.
The Codes are a useful tool which PHI Clinic’s Dr Tapan Patel and Dr Benji Dhillon have adopted, allowing patients to understand their treatment motivation and the strategy behind injecting specific areas, and what this will achieve.
Traditionally, dermal filler treatments were rather ad hoc when injectors treated the problem area. However, clinical studies and research suggests that a holistic approach is much more beneficial for patients, treating the source of the issue itself.
Because of the skill of our injectors and the products that we use, PHI Clinic is able to provide soft and elegant results, which enhance natural features.
Frequently Asked Questions
The HA based dermal fillers that we use at PHI Clinic provide longevity, without permanency. This enables you to stay in control of your looks, and if ever necessary, the results can be reversed.
On average, your dermal filler should last between 12-24 months, but this varies from patient to patient, depending on how quickly your immune system breaks the filler down. After two weeks from treatment, you should notice the lasting effect of your treatment. Treatment is a maintenance programme, however, and you will need to have treatment at regular intervals for results to last.
There are very few contraindications to having dermal filler treatment. We advise that those who are pregnant or breast feeding avoid treatment, although there is no clinical data to prove that it is harmful to the mother or baby. You should also avoid having filler at least 48 hours before you fly, as this may cause the filler to migrate.
PHI Clinic boasts some of the top injectors in the UK, including Dr Tapan Patel and Dr Benji Dhillon. Both Aesthetic Doctors were hand-selected to train alongside the creator of the MD Codes in the South of France in 2016. Dr Tapan Patel also teaches these techniques to delegates and colleagues across the country, and is a leading authority on the Codes.
