The “face” radiance
For beginners looking for a subtle rejuvenation, Dr. Jeyanathan usually starts with a pinch of Botox for any forehead or frown lines combined with Profhilo. If your skin is lacking in hydration and you want a treatment that gives you a “post-facial glow”, this is the one for you. Injectable biostimulant, but more “fluid” than a filler, Profhilo will help increase your skin’s hydration levels and collagen production – without relaxing muscles (like Botox) or adding lift and shape ( such as dermal fillers). “It gives a nice effect if you just look a bit sunken on the surface,” says Dr Jeyanathan. Injected into five spots on each side of the face, two Profhilo treatments four weeks apart are recommended. It is also a popular treatment for the “crepe” skin around the chest and back of the hands.
Revive the eyes
For the eye area, Dr. Sateei will sometimes use Botox to lift heavily hooded eyes and dermal filler to give the appearance of smoother, brighter under-eyes. “Many of my clients have said that the stress of the last year has increased the darkness around their eyes, and in the right hands this type of filling can work well and lasts for up to two years,” adds she does. “For a lot of the women I see, this will be the first time they’ve gone out without makeup in the morning.”
Do your homework
Make sure your injector is qualified correctly – you can search for them on Save Face. While social media is a great way to see before and after footage, don’t be fooled by the package deals (it’s worrying that there are “buy your cheek filler and get your filler” offers. chin for free “). Your face is completely unique. “Having any kind of treatment can be intimidating, so it’s important to build a relationship with your injector and find someone you trust,” adds Dr. Sateei.
I have found the right treatment for me at Profhilo. I booked with another excellent doctor, former London based GP Wassim Taktouk, who you may have seen as an expert in our Telegraph Beauty School series. I am sure I will reserve for Botox or dermal fillers in the future, if I ever need it, and I think if this is done by an ethical practitioner who always errs on the side of caution, it doesn’t is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. But for now, I feel like my face has been subtly and happily revived.
