Celebrating International Women’s Day with Dr Toni Phillips
This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating our amazing female Doctors and practitioners here at DestinationSkin. From their outstanding career achievements to their incredible patient reviews, we put the spotlight on Dr Toni Phillips, Group Medical Director at DestinationSkin with over 15 years experience in the industry.
What made you want to start a career in aesthetics?
I started out as a Cosmetic Dentist and began with using toxin for controlling masseter (jaw muscle) in terms of appearance and problems due to over function e.g. clenching and grinding. It was amazing to see the difference it could make, and inspired me to specialise in helping people with non-surgical injectable treatments.
What happens during a typical day in-clinic?
My days are busy and varied – usually, I’ll see a list of clients for anti-wrinkle injections, dermal filler and skin boosting treatments. As well as injectables we’ll talk about skincare and I may recommend a range of other treatments including IPL, peels and Dermaroller. It all depends on what the client wants to achieve, what’s realistic, and what will give the best results.
What about outside of DestinationSkin?
I’m often found in meetings or in training for Galderma – they’re the people who produce Restylane, a type of filler. I also lecture at conferences so I am often preparing talks and workshops during conference season. I’m also on the Governance Group for the IHAS ‘Treatments You Can Trust’ scheme which means I will be attending meetings, contributing to articles for the Keogh Review and other regulatory activities. I will also take calls from Journalists who want quotes for some deadline they are working on.
What’s your favourite treatment to perform and why?
I often get asked what my favourite treatment is to perform and it completely depends on the day! When I think about treatments I like to have such as botox I still get that ‘wow’ factor like a lot of my clients do. Lately one of my favourite treatments is profhilo, in my 15 year career it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen because it really changes the skin, it’s scientifically proven and I love the way clients react when having the treatments.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
This month we’re celebrating International Women’s Day, it’s a fantastic celebration of all the women in our business. We are largely female led which is fantastic but truly it is an expression of what we do to build the confidence of our female clients but that’s not forgetting all of our male clients! We’re an inclusive business of everyone however you want to identify and I think it’s important to celebrate everyone who impacts on our lives.
What’s your beauty rule or motto to live by?
Beauty comes from within literally… so diet, exercise and mindful balance play a big role in looking your best.
Our Patient Reviews
Montell cunningham, Bristol
I’ve been visiting the Bristol branch for just over a year for laser hair and as much as I’m impressed by the results from the treatment itself I’m even more impressed by the customer service I’ve received from the initial booking all the way up to my most recent appointment. I’ve been greeted by big smiles and a warm reception for every single appointment. I’ve been booked with Dr Toni for every session and can say the nerve racking experience I was expecting has actually been made as easy and comfortable as possible with her customer service and patience within the treatment room. Definitely recommend anyone to visit!
Sally Bishop, Weybridge
I go to Dr Toni at the Weybridge branch – she is absolutely superb and a really lovely person. I trust her 100% and am always thrilled with the results, totally recommend.
Melody Allsebrook, Knightsbridge
Wow, DestinationSkin you are life changers – Dr Toni you are amazing! Fantastic staff, so helpful, but most of all the way I feel now and how my face looks after my filler treatment yesterday – well I just want to keep this feeling forever and I can’t thank you enough. I’ve been using the products for about 2 months now and have definitely noticed a big improvement in my skin too. This all adds up to me being a regular customer and recommending you to anyone I know.
