Dr Tanja has been progressive and successful in her treatments and is a KOL and UK trainer for Fotona aesthetic users. Her work is all non-surgical, using a combination Nd:YAG (1064 nm), frequency-doubled Nd:YAG (KTP, 532 nm), KTP-pumped solid dye laser (585/650 nm radiation) and Erbium in patented non ablative SmoothMode and its usual ablative mode; along with injectables and topical products to achieve outstanding results. As well as non-surgical facelifts, eye lifts, fat reduction, skin tightening, pigmentation and much more, she also works on the challenging areas of scar tissue and birth marks. This particular patient had had numerous treatments over years at various laser centres for her PWS, with significant side effects post treatment with blistering and prolonged down time.
This short pulse Nd:Yag treatment with no downtime has given this patient new confidence in her skin and the ability to go out without thick camouflage make up over the areas affected, a great success!
This has been a very rewarding case for me, watching the patient on her transformation journey both physically and emotionally is an absolute honour I will never take for granted. I used a range of different modalities of treatment to restore the patients aesthetic appearance addressing the different layers of facial ageing, from the skin, the fat and the physiological changes to the bone which had impacted the morphology. Addressing the changes systematically and using evidence based treatments has resulted in optimal long lasting treatment results. The change has been beautiful and I am so pleased for the patient.
Using less than 4ml in total of dermal fillers, I helped restore lost volume and provide a 'less tired' look that this lovely patient wanted to achieve, alongside an enhancement to improve the profile of the nose. My approach to patient care is holistic, tailoring each care plan to the patient’s specific needs, suitability and expectations. My slogan ‘enhancing the natural beauty you already possess’ stands true in my approach and patient results.
Dr Cormac is a GMC registered Doctor, a clinical lecturer in Aesthetic Medicine at Queen Mary University of London and a Board Member of the Aesthetics Complications (ACE) Working Group. He is one of the few Doctors worldwide who have the skill and knowledge necessary to perform fully ablative resurfacing properly. Dr Cormac owns The Bloomfield Clinic in Ayrshire and co-owns Ever Clinic in Glasgow. All parts of this procedure were carried out at Ever Clinic.
Our patient received fully ablative resurfacing using a Sciton Erbium:YAG laser. This was complimented with HIFU to sharpen the jawline and enhance tightening on the face overall. Additionally some volume replacement was given with use of Stylage dermal fillers to the lateral cheek/temple area.
The primary factor of midface volume loss was addressed with Juvederm Voluma, using a combination of needle and cannula in the approach. Additional revolumisation was carried out at the mandibular angle (Juvederm Volux) and in the temporal fossa (Juvederm Voluma).
The skin was treated with Juvederm Volite, with a particular emphasis on treating the perioral region, and the upper face was treated judiciously with Botox® Cosmetic to address forehead, glabella and periorbital line, with care to create an idea brow position without heaviness or hooding.
Within the specified budget, the patient achieved the subtle enhancement she sought, and has overcome the previous trauma she felt at having facial aesthetic treatments. She most likes the confidence this process has given her in her professional and personal life.
A great case of full facial rejuvenation using non surgical treatments for a lovely female client in her 60s who was concerned about the visible signs of ageing such as a dull complexion, laxity, lines & wrinkles and pigmentation.
Through a customised combination of medical grade skincare, skin peels and microneedling we were able to achieve visible, holistic and effective results using evidence based protocols.
The additional advantage was that we didn’t carry out any toxin or dermal filler treatments but still managed to achieve fantastic results that have not only attained aesthetic improvements but elevated the patient’s self confidence.
Overall a great case demonstrating how a thorough understanding of the skin and treatment modalities, as well as a safe and tailored treatment approach can help achieve positive long term outcomes for the patient and practitioner as long as we are patient enough to see results!
Profile Rebalance & Submandibular Lift CaseLive Podium. 15 mins Treatment Time. Single session. Total volume: 5.5ml
International Launch of Juvederm Volux, AMWC Monaco 2019
Profile & Submandibular Dynamic Re-balance
Bride-to-be in 4 weeks, previous facial trauma.
Challenge: submental surgical indication & chin retrusion but wanting fast, natural result for imminent wedding.
Patient request: 1) lift submandibular and submental fat 2) reduce distracting peri-oral expressions & weakness 3) look completely natural on frontal view.
Bilateral: 0.5ml Voluma zygoma
0.3ml Volux mandibular angle
0.7ml Volux subdermal & subsmas - cannula
0.5ml Volux pre jowl sulcus & 0.5ml soft tissue pogonion
0.25ml Volbella upper vermillion border mild eversion
Observe 1) immediate lift of submandibular and submental fat, sustained throughout all expressions, on smiling & forced orbicularis oris 2) appropriate and obtuse definition of the mandibular angle. a more acute angle or projection would widen bigonal width & create masculinity, not femininity. 3) smoother pogonion on mentalis contraction & reduced shortening of soft tissue menton & pogonion. 4) less lower lip ptosis & insufficiency on smiling creating a more attractive smile and less lower teeth show. 5) clear definition where the face ends & the neck begins. Very happy Bride.
This is a particular favorite result of mine. The patient was not complaining of ageing; she felt "masculine" and hated her square jaw. She always felt there was nothing that could be done about it. It has affected her self exteem to the point of interfering with her relationships.
A combined aproach of Botox and fillers over a phased period achieved the result you can see here. She appears more "feminised" and her self esteem has since improved significantly. She has maintained the treatment results over a period of 18 months, but continuing to have top-up treatments of 2/3 syringes of filler every 6 months and also Botox 3 times a year to her masseters.
Dr Dhesi has submitted and showcased a multi-layered approach to facial rejuvenation that incorporates wellness in the form of nutrition, injectables and machine based technology to produce an outstanding result for his patient. His unique approach to combining non-surgical treatments has not only produced a dramatic result which she was extremely happy with, but it highlights the importance of holistic aesthetic medicine. Starting with the consultation process the patient's concerns, ideas and expectations were assessed before presenting a staged process of treatment which resulted in an amazing rejuvenation. The consultation process allows the patient to express their concerns, gain an understanding of what treatments are involved and then make a decision regarding their bespoke treatment plan. The staged approach was in keeping with the patient’s budget, allowed for downtime and the integration of each treatment before proceeding to the next. The natural progression of Dr Dhesi’s approach also alleviated the client’s fears of looking ‘done.’ The overall approach has given the patient a result that continues to improve with time and in her own words “has made me look 10 years younger.”
Profiloplasty treatment of nose and chin in a 27-year old female who had previously thought surgery was the only option. Augmenting the nose and chin in a multi-stage approach has avoided costly and risky surgery and given her a straighter nose and more pronounced chin. Careful assessment of this patient allowed me to plan correction of this patient's very difficult dorsal curvature in order to achieve a much improved outcome. The patient is delighted.
This year I have had the pleasure to treat SJ, a 63 year old lady with volume loss, sagging and jowl formation and associated facial asymmetry from her parotid gland removal. Over a series of 2 treatments I have been able to lift replace the natural volume lost over the years to return her confidence in her work place as well as create a stunning more youthful appearance.
SJ's journey and result are one of the best things about my vocation in aesthetic medicine. Having the ability to return youth, confidence and happiness is a privilege we should never take for granted. Patients trust aesthetic practitioners to treat them with care and use the most appropriate licenced medication in a safe medical environment.
It is for patients like SJ that I have created Thames Skin Clinic, a medical sanctuary tucked away in the heart of Twickenham where I can continue to treat my patients and develop a comprehensive service for all their skin needs.
It has been a pleasure to share our patient's journey and success with you.
One of the most rewarding aspects for us as aesthetic practitioners is how, with continually developing our expertise and adopting a holistic approach to every consultation, we can truly change peoples' lives. With half a ml of dermal filler and a precise technique, I was able to not only enhance the aesthetic of these already beautiful lips but also to enhance the self-esteem and confidence of this patient. Being entrusted with a task such as this is a privilege and being able to use my skills to bring about the joy and happiness that came with this result makes this an immensely rewarding career.
This 39 year-old female sought advice and treatment options for her face, her main concerns being;
o Facial asymmetry
o Double chin
o Mouth - downturned corners
o Thinning lips
o Pigmented skin
A professional makeup artist, she’d contoured her face using make-up and achieved better symmetry for many years. She wanted to explore non-surgical facial aesthetics but hadn’t had a consultation or treatment due to her busy schedule and fear of looking worse. She had good skin quality but wanted to see improvements in skin tone and hydration too.
Together we agreed a multi-layered approach where her skin to bone structure was analysed and treated appropriately answering her aesthetic goals whilst giving her an enhanced overall outcome with a natural look. We started with medical-grade skincare (Obagi NuDerm Transformation Kit) before proceeding, after two months, to dermal fillers to treat her cheeks, lips, chin and prejowl sulcus, and jawline.
“The results are clearly wow! My lips are more symmetrical so my whole face, my jawline and chin look sharper. My cheekbones appear higher and I am very pleased with the results. I will remain his regular patient from now on!”
