Botox, Fillers, Threads, Profhilo - Range of Available Non surgical Treatments

By Elena Prousskaia MD, FRCS (Plast), FEBOPRAS

Injectables are an ideal solution for anyone who wants to look fresher and younger without the need for surgery.

With good knowledge of facial anatomy Injectable can be introduced to the multiple layers of the skin or deep tissue to achieve an amazing rejuvenating effect.

In this page, we look at:
• Dermal Fillers
• Botox® (botulinum toxin) injections
• Profhilo
• Thread Lift

Dermal Fillers

Fillers can give a natural lift by replacement of the missing volume and by stimulation of lost collagen; they can also enhance cheekbones, plump up the lips or smooth the contour of an uneven nose.

With good knowledge of facial anatomy Injectable can be introduced to the multiple layers of the skin or deep tissue to achieve an amazing rejuvenating effect.

Dermal fillers are safe, easy to apply, long-lasting, and virtually painless to inject. All of these products are hypoallergenic, produce consistently excellent results, feel natural under the skin, and require no downtime for recovery. The results can last anywhere from 6 months up to 18 months, depending on the product used and you will see a natural and beautiful result right away.

Popular areas for filling lines and creases include:

  • Laughter lines (nasolabial furrows)
  • Tear-trough lines (under-eye furrows)
  • Lip or lip-border enhancement
  • Cheek enhancement
  • Chin or jaw line enhancement
  • Raising mouth corners

Botox® (botulinum toxin) injections

Our patients request a natural look that means that are still able to have expressions after having botox and fillers – it’s not too obvious that they have had ‘work done’.

New patients are often particularly cautious about avoiding the frozen look, but we administer botox doses accordingly so that patients have a subtle result that can be topped up after 2-3 weeks free of charge to ensure they are completely happy and get used to their fresher appearance.

BOTOX® (botulinum toxin) injections are very popular for the following areas:

  • Frown lines and wrinkles
  • Forehead lines and creases between the brows
  • Eye lines / crow’s feet / laughter lines

Profhilo

Profhilo is an injectable skin remodelling treatment containing one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market, especially formulated for people whose skin lacks volume and elasticity.

Rather than just plumping and filling wrinkles, the slow release of HA by Profhilo stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, in turn improving skin tone, hydration and the appearance of fine lines. The result is improved skin quality lasting for up to 6 months.

Thread Lift

A thread lift is suited to men and women between the ages of 40 and 70.

The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for results that are more effective and long lasting than Botox and other fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice.

If you are put off by traditional surgery or don’t want general anaesthetic, then a thread lift is great as it is minimally invasive and can be carried out under local anaesthetic.

This procedure requires a minimum amount of non-invasive surgery and leaves no scarring. Local anaesthetic is all that is needed and there is no hospital stay either. Another good factor about the thread lift is that it is much more affordable than a regular face lift, and the results are long lasting. If you are looking for a quick and effective solution to a range of aging problems then a thread lift is the perfect solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Have More Than One Session?

Depending on your desired result and quality of your skin, Elena will build you a personalised programme of facial rejuvenation. Each session can be performed independently and the timings between sessions can vary, however suggested sequence delivers the best effect.

What Is The Cost Of Having Fillers And Botox?

Please scroll down for more information on pricing.

Is This Performed As An Outpatient Procedure?

Yes this would just be a clinic appointment in outpatients.

What Is The Recovery Following Injectables?

You will be provided with a detailed consent form outlining any reactions that may occur in more detail including, redness, swelling, itching, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site. These reactions are generally described as mild to moderate and typically resolve spontaneously a few days after treatment. These reactions are normal and to be expected.

Am I A Good Candidate For This Treatment?

You will be given a detailed questionnaire to complete prior to starting treatment and will have an assessment with Ms Prousskaia to ensure proposed treatments are safe for you. If signs of ageing are very advanced surgery such a facelift or blepharoplasty sometimes may be a better option to deliver on your expectations. At different stage of life different treatments and different products deliver better result. That is why it’s so important to be treated by a board certified surgeon with a good knowledge of anatomy.

Can These Treatments Be Combined With Other Procedures?

Absolutely. Some patients are keen to get injectable while they are undertaking surgery in different areas under general anaesthetic as in this case they will not feel it at all. Depending on the treatment you are requesting, most injectables can be carried out while under general anesthetic during another aesthetic procedure.

What Can I Expect From A Consultation?

Elena always offers lengthy, detailed consultations so she can fully understand the aims you are requesting. Elena can then talk through the available options, results and after care as well as the treatment itself.

WHAT DO ELENA'S PATIENTS SAY...

Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital.  The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands.  The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.  

LMS – implant Removal & Replacement

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery  has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!

JB – Breast Reduction

I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.

SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
