Dark Circles at The MW Clinic London
  • Dark circles around the eyes are a common concern, often leading to a tired or aged appearance. These shadows can be the result of various factors, including genetics, lack of sleep, ageing, and even lifestyle habits.
  • Dealing with dark circles can be challenging as they are typically due to a constellation of contributing factors including: skin pigmentation, skin thinning, underlying blood vessels, fluid retention or fat loss in the area.
    To effectively address this issue, The MW Clinic London offers a number of treatments including polynucleotides and Sciton BBL light therapy. The latter's innovative procedure is designed to target and reduce the appearance of dark circles due to hyperpigmentation, giving the eyes a refreshed and youthful look.
  • Sciton BBL utilises non-invasive high-intensity phototherapy that penetrates the skin layers, addressing the melanin and blood vessels contributing to dark circles. This process helps to brighten the under-eye area and even out skin tone.
  • Undergoing the Sciton BBL treatment can significantly diminish the prominence of dark circles, leading to brighter, rejuvenated eyes and a more alert appearance.
  • With its non-invasive approach and minimal downtime, Sciton BBL is a favoured choice for those keen to tackle their under-eye concerns without undergoing surgical interventions.
  • For best results, a series of 3-4 sessions is typically advised. However, the exact number can depend on individual skin conditions and the severity of the dark circles.
  • Opting for Sciton BBL is more than an aesthetic choice; it's about restoring confidence and embracing a fresher appearance.
  • If you're troubled by dark circles and are considering the Sciton BBL treatment, please schedule a consultation with Dr Meg Minasian. Contact us here or book your online session here.
