The French Touch in Aesthetic
After a precise review, analyzing the specific problem areas and goals of the patient, we'll discuss the treatment options and agree on a personalized treatment plan.
We will take a progressive approach to allow for a more natural result. I do not advocate large change in “one go” and prefer to do less where possible. This ensures a more harmonious result, respecting the contours and existing expression lines of the face. Our goal will be to make you look better, not different.
Many people worry about having a ‘frozen’ face after Botox. My progressive approach minimizes the risk.
Keep things natural to let your beauty shine through, this is the French Touch in Aesthetic!
The place of Prevention
Our society usually favour the curative approach. We wait until the problems appear and then we try to fix them. We should think more about the preventive approach. The aging process is a dynamic process starting very early in life. For example, it is estimated that we lose 1 or 2 % of our collagen, major component of dermis, each year from the age of 20. And photoaging can double it, especially since melanocytes density decreases by 10-20% per decade. Therefore I always advocate to my patients to fight this dynamic aging process with a dynamic preventive approach started as early of possible in life.
Safety, Simplicity, and Efficiency.
New treatments are launched every year and it can be confusing to look at long lists of procedures and products options proposed by large cosmetic clinics and chains, often linked to certain suppliers.
As an independent and medical doctor, I consider that medical treatments must be as simple, safe and efficient as possible. I personally select the best globally-recognised products and treatments which have demonstrated their effectiveness over millions of treatments performed. Those treatments, allowing to target the different aspects of the aging face, are all non or minimally invasive and very well tolerated.
Flexible Locations for Treatment
My private treatment room, situated 200m from the fashionable Northcote Road in Battersea, is particularly appreciated by those who prefer a discrete 'away from the high street' location.
I also operate from two Health and Beauty treatments centres. The first, Make Me Feel, is located in the heart of the beautiful Abbeville village in Clapham. Last but not least, I also offer treatments at the The French Pharmacy in Marylebone, just off the famous Harley Street.
The Four Step Approach
by Dr Jean-Philippe Torre
My ' four step approach' is based on a specific selection of treatments, targeting the core root causes of the ageing process.
As we age, there are four core areas of our face that are impacted: the skin (epidermis and dermis), the subcutaneous tissue (fat pads++) the supporting muscles and the bones. The combined impacts result in loss of volume, skin lustre loss, appearance of lines and 'drooping'.
My four step approach specifically targets these four core areas to restore a more youthful you: the epidermis (micro-dermabrasion) for lustre and hydratation; the dermis (micro-needling) to stimulate natural collagen, elastin production, and cells renewal; the fat pads and bones (dermal filler) to enhance lost volume, 'lift' and support the skin; the muscles (Botox) to reduce the appearance (and formation) of wrinkles and to provide additional 'lift'.
This approach will be adapted to your specific case. There is no ''one size fit all' formula for anti-aging. Everyone's face is different. We will design together the best combination of treatments considering your specific signs of ageing, your concerns and the kind of treatments you are ready to consider.
