When the chic four-storey PHI Clinic, founded by medical director Dr Tapan Patel, opened in London’s prestigious Harley Street, it set a precedent. By offering the most contemporary, scientific approach to cosmetic procedures ever seen, it has established the highest standard for innovation in aesthetics in the UK.
Work continues with the country’s leading cosmetic surgeons, aesthetic doctors, nurses and aestheticians, working together under one roof to achieve beautiful results with unparalleled customer care. Instantly a hit with patients and press, PHI was awarded Best New Clinic UK and Ireland and Best Clinic in London at the 2014 Aesthetics Awards.
The Ancient Greek concept of PHI, also known as the golden ratio, forms the elementary principle of the clinic. PHI is the equation that sets out the importance of symmetrical proportions which the human eye finds appealing and attractive not only in art and architecture, but in the face. Applied to facial aesthetics, the PHI philosophy creates perfect facial symmetry and sensational results.
A consultation lasts between 30 minutes and an hour, followed by a cooling-off period for patients to decide whether to proceed
With the use of an innovative strategy, PHI’s doctors provide a bespoke plan to enable patients to address the underlying ageing process. Such a strategy enables PHI’s doctors to inject the facial anatomy with proportions taken deeply into consideration for far superior results; there is no compromise on achieving the optimum appearance possible. A consultation lasts between 30 minutes and an hour, followed by a cooling-off period for patients to decide whether to proceed.
The clinic has two operating theatres offering surgical treatments from breast augmentation, liposuction to face lifts and a dozen more. When it comes to non-surgical enhancements, Botox and fillers are specialties, and PHI Clinic also has 45 medical aesthetic devices, the largest number in any UK clinic to treat rosacea, rejuvenate and tighten the skin, treat excessive sweating, remove stretch marks and much more.
Tattoos are for many beautiful body art, but some people regret the foray into inking. Until now removal has not only been expensive and time consuming, but also unsuitable for darker skin types with red and black inks proving stubborn to eliminate on everyone.
Super-safe PicoWay, by Syneron Candela, offers the very latest in technology delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the skin to break up the tattoo ink into particles which are then eliminated by the body. Although it is advised to wait four to six weeks between treatments, results can be seen even after just one session. However, the number of treatments will be determined by the colouring and size of the tattoo.
Acne affects 80 per cent of people aged between 11 and 30, and 50 per cent of women are diagnosed with some form of acne in adulthood.
TheraClear delivers results in four to six treatments every two or four weeks and stands out from other acne treatments with a two pronged approach combining the dual efficacy of vacuum and broadband light. The treatment starts by the opening and unblocking of pores using vacuum technology to reduce the number of blackheads, then delivering a blue light to destroy the bacteria and target the sebaceous glands to stop excess production of sebum. Acne is not only reduced, self-confidence is restored.
