“I’m most concerned about my frown, downturned mouth and generally looking tired. I feel like I always look grumpy and tired, but I am not. I want a fresher look. ” Tracy
Tracy's initial consultation with DestinationSkin
Dr Toni Philips, Clinic Director at DestinationSkin, met with Tracy to discuss her concerns about feeling younger than she looked. Finally making the decision to come into DestinationSkin was the hardest step, for Tracy, as she was nervous about what treatments she would need. As part of her consultation, Dr Toni assessed Tracy’s skins overall health, laxity and structure to determine the best treatment plan for her.
What made you come to DestinationSkin today?
“Firstly, I haven’t ever really had a skin regime, I haven’t used any products other than occasionally using Neutrogena cleanser, and I use baby wipes to cleanse my face. So I would like to get an easy to use skincare regime in place, but I have concerns about ageing and I just hope that there is some kind of treatment that can make me feel and look fresher and happier.”
How did you feel after your consultation?
“I was concerned what my friends and family might think, but after seeing the results of other people, it made me realise that whilst effective, the subtlety of treatment would help me look younger but not ‘frozen'”

Tracy's Treatment Plan
Based on Dr Toni’s assessment, she recommended a bespoke treatment plan for Tracy, which involved addressing each concern.
|How to improve tired looking skin||Botox in the lower part of the face, using an advanced techniques, to soften the muscles and the natural jaw line. Dermal filler will also be used to add definition and support for the upper face, specifically around the mouth where Tracy was most worried about looking down-turned and miserable.|
|How to look younger||Dermal fillers in the cheeks, temple areas and under eyes, to replace loss of volume. Loss of volume under the eye is often referred to as the tear trough area and causes the appearance of hollowness and darkness under the eye|
|How to get rid of sagging jowls||Botox in the lower part of the face, using an advanced techniques, to soften the muscles and the natural jaw line. Dermal filler will also be used to add definition and support for the upper face, specifically around the mouth where Tracy was most worried about looking down-turned and miserable.|
|How to get plumper lips||Lip augmentation to fill and define the lips to address loss of volume which often occurs with the ageing process and can be an area which can really re-balance the facial features when treated|
|How to get rid of sun damage||A course of IPL treatment for veins and sun damage|
Tracy’s treatments will take place over 5 to 8 appointments to allow her skin time to recover and be stimulated by the treatments used.
Post first treatment
On her first treatment, Tracy had Botox to treat the fine lines and wrinkles in her forehead, around the eyes and lower part of the face and neck.
“I was nervous about going to the clinic for my first treatment, I didn’t know if it would hurt, what I would look like after, would it be natural and what side effects there could be? I spoke to my friend who had Botox before, and she reassured me that it is pain free and will really help with how I feel about my looks.”
“Once the treatment was over, I couldn’t believe how painless and quick it went. Dr Toni was thorough with her questions, and let me talk through my worries about how I would look after, and how much the treatment would cost. I didn’t feel rushed and walked out not feeling conscious that everyone was looking at me!”
