Non Surgical Facelift
With more and more non-surgical advances, the need to undergo surgery is not as imperative as it was, say, six years ago. Patients are able to achieve a lifting effect without the scalpel with a liquid facelift or non surgical face lift. Non surgical methods are a great substitute for those who are not ready to take the plunge and have an operation. They are non-permanent, yet long-lasting; subtle, yet durable. Not to mention that the no-knife facelift is more cost effective, and has no real downtime associated with it.
Why Choose PHI?
PHI Clinic is situated at 102 Harley Street, London. We offer the broadest range of treatments in Europe, meaning we are equipped to treat a plethora of conditions and indications. At PHI Clinic, not only do we use the most innovative products, we also boast one of the best injectors in the UK, Dr Tapan Patel, with over 17 years of experience in the aesthetic medical field. He and his select staff of doctors here at PHI have performed hundreds of non invasive facelift treatments. Our doctors have undergone extensive medical training with Mauricio de Maio himself to ensure the best outcomes and results for every patient at PHI Clinic.
What Does Consultation Entail?
Consultations are always carried out by the appropriate clinician, and never by a sales representative. We believe in giving patients an all-encompassing journey from the moment they pick up the phone, to when they leave the clinic.
Our ethos is to treat patients so that they look good and feel good, but we are moving away from this traditional perception of the cosmetic industry being driven to deliver exaggerated, excessive looks.
Before and after Non Surgical Facelift treatment
Our clinicians are well versed with non surgical face lift treatments, having performed numerous procedures. We continue to learn and get better by conducting regular doctor training days where our team gets together to provide further training and discuss the latest developments in the field of cosmetic medicine in order to go beyond the needs of our patients and provide the best cosmetic services.
Dermal fillers are used to fill out the facial features, creating a rejuvenated appearance. They work to iron out crepey skin and give a much fuller look. In turn, the added volume restores structure, lifting the skin to stop the drooping effect. For example, adding filler into the midface can reduce the appearance of jowls, providing a lifting effect.
For severe cases of laxity, our doctors may recommend surgery as the most effective technique. However, in moderate to severe cases, we can utilise ultrasound and radio frequency technology in combination with dermal fillers to provide a more intense lifting and tightening effect.
Every patient who visits us at PHI Clinic is required to have a consultation before any treatment goes ahead. During this consultation, your practitioner will discuss with you what expectations you have for treatment, your budget, and your desired outcomes. Following this, you will be provided with an in-depth treatment plan that meets your needs; this may contain one treatment or a combination of devices and products to achieve the results you are looking for.
Conditions treated with Non Surgical Facelift
Periorbital puffiness, also known as puffy eyes, or swollen eyes are a common condition that can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. Eye bags are sagging or loose skin, dark circles, or mild swelling just below the eye, commonly caused by a range of issues like smoking, alcohol consumption, and lack of sleep. Other causes include, but are not limited to, loss of fatty tissue, weakening ...Read on Book consultation
Forehead lines, vertical furrows across the forehead, are caused by the frontalis muscle. As the eyebrows are raised, this muscle contracts to cause wrinkles above the brow. A variety of factors can make these wrinkles worse, including genetics, age, and smoking.... Read on Book consultation
Frown lines, also called glabella lines, are the furrows between the eyebrows, generally shaped like the number 11. These lines can cause self-consciousness and lack of self-confidence in both men and women.
These expression lines can be caused by a variety of factors over the years, including sun damage, smoking, and repetitive facial movements.

Sagging skin along the lower jawline is commonly referred to as jowls, particularly skin that hangs or sinks below the jaw itself. Jowls can be caused by a variety of factors; natural ageing, genetics, sun damage, weight loss, and smoking being just a few. Generally, jowls begin to appear as we hit our 40s, but some people can experience sagging cheek skin from their 20s onwar...Read on Book consultation
A weak chin, or recessive, jaw can affect anyone, and though it can cause problems related to speaking and eating, it is more likely to just shake self-confidence or increase self-consciousness. These psychological effects are largely down to media portrayal of a strong jawline as an attractive feature in both men and women.

Frequently Asked Questions
The procedure itself takes around 30-45 minutes, and only one is needed to see desired outcomes. Depending on how quickly the dermal filler is broken down by the body, subsequent treatments may be needed after around 12-24 months to continue to see results.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment, but patients may expect some slight bruising and swelling in the treated areas. This is normal following any injectable treatment and will relax after a few days.
“The first time I see a new patient in the clinic at consultation and ask them how I can help, one of the most common responses I get, particularly from female patients, is a full-face lift. They’ve noticed some sagging in the lower part of the face, and they want to improve that. What I tell patients is that there are four ways that we can do this. The gold standard would be a surgical facelift under general anaesthetic, but we can also use devices like ultrasound and suspension threads, and dermal filler, to achieve the desired lifting effect. It is important to understand that a filler, ultrasound, or thread cannot replace a traditional facelift, however the amount of impact we can create is considerable. The ideal patient would be someone who doesn’t have excessive sagging, and we typically begin by putting the filler along the cheek, which affects the skin around the jawline, lifting it for an improved appearance. This is the basic premise of a non-surgical facelift with filler, simply re-volumising the tissues that have lost definition and deflated with the ageing process, using the filler to get a lift in the midface, and in doing so, improving the lower face.” – Dr Tapan Patel
