What treatment options are available for Hooded Eyes?
- At the MW Clinic London, Dr Meg Minasian will carefully evaluate each patient's eyes and determine the most appropriate treatment option. This may include surgical options such as a blepharoplasty, or various non-surgical options such as Sciton BBL-Skin Tyte, botulinum toxin injections and polynucleotides.

Are non-surgical treatments available for Hooded Eyes
- For patients who prefer a non-surgical option, Sciton BBL-Skin Tyte is an energy-based lifting treatment that works through stimulating the creation of new collagen and elastin in the skin. Botulinum toxin injections can be used to relax the muscles that pull the brow down and create a more lifted appearance. Polynucleotides are bio-revitalising injectables that also improve hydration, elasticity and strength and are particularly effective around the delicate eye area.
Who should perform treatments for Hooded Eyes?
- It's important to note that any treatment for hooded eyes should only be performed by a trained and experienced healthcare professional, such as Dr Meg Minasian. While these treatments are generally safe, there can be potential side effects, and a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history and individual needs should be taken into account before treatment.
