- Facial wrinkles can have a significant impact on a person's self-confidence and overall appearance. At The MW Clinic London, we offer a range of effective treatments, including botulinum toxin injections, hyaluronic acid-based skin boosters, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, and Sciton BBL phototherapy treatments, to address facial wrinkles.
- Dr Meg Minasian, our expert ophthalmic surgeon and aesthetic doctor, provides personalised treatment plans to meet each client's individual needs, and our team is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care and attention to our clients.
- Botulinum toxin injections are an incredibly popular and highly effective treatment for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. This treatment works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, which results in a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. The results of botulinum toxin injections typically last 3-4 months, and it is a safe and effective treatment option that can be repeated regularly over many years.
- Hyaluronic acid-based skin boosters are an additional and effective treatment particularly when used in combination with botulinum toxin injections. Together they help restore and rejuvenate ageing facial skin.
- Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can be used in limited areas and volumes. They help to refine and finesse any static lines that persist following botulinum toxin and skin booster treatments. They work by restoring volume and support to deep wrinkles thereby improving their appearance. Dr Meg Minasian uses a range of high-quality fillers from Teoxane to provide natural-looking results that typically last up to 18 months.
- Sciton BBL phototherapy is also a highly effective, non-invasive treatment using advanced light technology. This stimulates collagen and elastin production and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Sciton BBL is a safe and effective treatment that can be performed quickly with minimal discomfort and downtime.
