This Clinica London blog is to inform our patients about the all our different aesthetic treatments and the technology and techniques we are using. This includes skin treatments as well as eye treatments.
Eyelid surgery and botox are two very different therapies, but both can be used to treat your glabellar lines effectively. These ageing lines are the vertical creases in your forehead that can make you look angry or perplexed. We also use this process to correct eyelid hooding, where the skin above your eyelashes droops, forcing you to raise your eyebrows in order to see better. Read on to find out more about this very effective combined treatment.
Sagging eyebrows can literally be a headache. They can feel heavy and make you look tired, and they may even cause discomfort. If you’ve thought about having surgery to correct them, but you have concerns about the associated risks and downtime, there is a very good alternative. At Clinica London, we’ve been performing Botox brow lifts for many years and our patients are delighted with the results.
There is now a lot of evidence to show that Botulinum toxin may help to prevent scars from forming. Potentially, this treatment can produce a better outcome for patients after eyelid surgery or if they have suffered trauma. In both situations, the patient is likely to suffer from scarring, but research has shown that Botulinum toxin can have a prophylactic role in the prevention of scars.
You would be surprised at the sheer number of uses for Botulinum toxin (or Botox), which doctors use both medically and cosmetically. It can help with a variety of medical problems, from squint to sweating, and cosmetically, we use it for a number of things, from crow’s feet and forehead lines to scarring - we even use it for brow lifting. Botox is a safe and time-tested treatment that we have used at Clinica London for more than 20 years. Click on the link above to find out more.
We all know that sinking feeling when someone remarks that you look tired. When they’re safely out of sight, we might look into a mirror only to see the awful truth - dark circles and sunken under-eye hollows that make us look old and haggard before our time. It’s not a good look. But at Clinica London, we have some amazing products that will add volume and minimise dark circles - transforming your appearance to give you a much brighter, wide-awake and youthful look. Read on to find out more details.
Both plastic and oculoplastic surgeons use Botox for a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions. However, doctors are learning about recent research revealing that the treatment also improves the appearance of scars. A peer-reviewed study this year concluded that Botox influences the formation of scars by reducing their size and severity and producing a smoother look. We will start to use Botox more often to facilitate healing for our patients after surgery.
We all hate the thought of growing old and developing wrinkles. Okay, so it may be better than the alternative - but that doesn't mean you have to give in to the ageing process. Most of us want to fight the effects of ageing and look our best, and we have many treatments at Clinica London that can help you to do that. All of these procedures are safe and non-surgical. Read on to find out about our range of treatments and the many different problems we can help with, from crow's feet and forehead frown lines to overall skin rejuvenation.
It may have been Halloween recently, but you might get a fright when you look in the mirror and see dark under-eye circles that make you look like a zombie that's just emerged from the dead zone. But fear not - we have exactly the right treatment to help you at Clinica London. We use hyaluronate gel fillers to restore volume to those spooky sunken eye hollows and ghoulish dark circles. To find out what's involved in this very safe procedure read on. Or better still, give us a call to book in for an appointment and we'll soon have you looking bright-eyed, refreshed and most definitely in the land of the living!
If you think that it’s only women who worry about their lines and wrinkles, you would be mistaken. You would be surprised at the number of men who come to our clinic wanting their facial lines smoothed out and plumped up - especially their crow’s feet. These are the wrinkles that form at the outer edges of our eyes, which are also known as laughter lines. It’s often the case that laughter lines can look attractive but when they become very deep they can age us. We may no longer feel like spring chickens, but we don’t want crow’s feet to make us look old before our time either. If you have pronounced laughter lines, we can plump them out with Botox and restore the twinkle in your eye without the wrinkles.
If you’re in your thirties, one of the first things you may notice is your glabellar lines, also known as the frown lines, which can make you look perplexed, and even grumpy. We can treat frown lines at Clinica London with Botox. First, you’ll come in for an assessment consultation, where we’ll ask you to look really cross so that we can assess the strength of your forehead muscles. (Easy, just think of that commuter who stepped on your toes on the train this morning). We’ll also assess whether there are any other signs of early ageing that you might wish to correct, such as small blood vessels, for example, that will need treating to stop them from getting worse. We’ll also use a little Botox on the upper eyebrow to achieve the best result - but don’t worry, you won’t emerge looking like Mr Spock! You’ll just have a smoother, fresher, more youthful look that we’re sure you’ll love.
