A signature Phi-Lift is a non-surgical technique developed exclusively by our team that uses a combination of HA-fillers to augment facial beauty enhancing the Phi lines of the Golden Ratio and rejuvenating the face.
Attractive facial characteristics are characterised with natural curves and arcs across the cheekbone and a smooth and regular jawline. An attractive face is wider at the level of the cheekbones and then narrows towards the chin, this is sometimes referred to as the “Ogee” facial curve. With facial ageing, there is a combination of the effects of gravity in a downward direction coupled with the loss of facial volume and skin laxity. The ageing process results in loss of the volume around the upper cheeks leading to a less youthful appearance. The skin that was once relatively taught and elastics becomes misshapen with more wrinkles and lines. The Phi-Lift technique enhances facial beauty by augmenting these artistic natural lines that favour facial beauty and attractiveness. Filler injections to the cheeks can restore lost volume, correct volume loss and can create a fuller, more youthful appearance. In addition, fillers can be used to enhance natural curves and emphasise feminine parts of the female face and masculine parts of the male face.

At The Centre, we specialise in natural-looking results. We believe in a natural augmentation of the cheek area. Our aestheticians have pioneered research in the area of facial beauty and this has been published in the mainstream media and multiple TV Channels. We have also developed the application of the Phi Golden Ratio (used in many of the most famous Renaissance paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci) to the human face and we have multiple trained specialists at The Centre to apply the principles of this facial balance and beautification technique. At The Centre we have treated many celebrities and A-listers with these techniques to enhance natural beauty, a term we describe as Beautification of the Face, enhancing the natural Phi Golden Ratio Lines. Of key importance with filler rejuvenation is avoiding excessive filler use as this no longer looks natural or beautiful. The key application of filler in specific areas of the face differs depending on each individual’s facial characteristics. The application of cheek filler is different in masculine and feminine faces. In women, it is focused along the Phi Golden Ratio lines of the cheek. In men, it is focussed along the chin and jawline. If you have already had treatment that has been excessive it may be necessary to dissolve the existing filler or wait for the filler to resolve.
This woman in her early 40s had been concerned about changes in her face with age including the sagginess of the middle and lower third of her face and a general deterioration in skin quality.
We use a combination of treatments to minimise discomfort, these include the use of a powerful numbing local anaesthetic cream that is specially made for The Centre. We use a State-of-The-Art cannula (no needle) technique to minimise discomfort. We use fillers that have incorporated anaesthetic into the injectable fillers to increase patient comfort.
At The Centre, we use additional numbing and vibration devises that use the Nobel Prize-winning research on ‘The Gate Control Theory of Pain” to minimise discomfort.
At The Centre, we take the above measures to ensure most patients only experience minor discomfort.
Studies on the safety of fillers have reported filler treatments as relatively safe with few side effects when completed by trained specialists. Recorded adverse events are usually minor including temporary injection site redness for less than three days. Patients may occasionally report temporary symptoms of redness, swelling, discomfort, lumps-bumpy changes, bruising, itching or change in colour. Infection is very rare however it is important that the treatment is completed in a CQC (Care Quality Commission) registered site and sterile precautions when having filler treatments. At The Centre, all treatments are completed in our specialist Facial Centre on Harley Street. Serious side effects such as damage to the skin (termed Necrosis) or damage to vision have very rarely been reported. Our staff has pioneered the teaching of other doctors to avoid these serious issues in both National and International Conferences since 2012. Fillers are currently lacking from regulation, which remains a controversy in the UK. Precautions can be taken with competent practitioners to avoid these serious complications
