Wrinkle Treatments / Waterhouse Young
Your face is precious
- Our conservative approach will help you retain muscle movement and maintain a natural appearance – you’ll look happier, vibrant and refreshed
- Our clients tell us that the treatment is surprisingly comfortable and that our aesthetic doctors have a reassuringly soft touch that delivers high quality results
When you entrust something as precious as your face to someone, you want to know that you’re in the best and safest hands. The UK’s leading cosmetic surgeon, Norman Waterhouse, has handpicked the best aesthetic team in the business to look after you.
Wrinkle treatments can reduce or even remove the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles and loose ageing skin that are a classic giveaway of your age. We treat typical problem areas such as brow and frown lines, smokers’ lines and crows’ feet, as well as more advanced areas such as neck bands or the corners of your mouth, which may be turning down and giving you a sad appearance as you grow older.
We take a conservative, ‘less is more’ approach to wrinkle-free injections to ensure that you retain some muscle movement to leave your face as natural and expressive as ever. Our clients at our clinic often comment on our aesthetic doctors’ soft touch and how reassuring it is.
After their treatment, many of our clients tell us that they look like a refreshed, rejuvenated and happier version of themselves. We think that’s the ultimate outcome and testament to the precision skill of our team.
We can also use specific wrinkle treatments to effectively treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and bruxism (teeth grinding).
Your treatment plan will be bespoke to you - your face is precious and unique, and we will treat it as such.
“Waterhouse Young offers an abundance of skincare treatments and expertise. From a luxury facial to more targeted skin solutions, the clinic is a go-to skincare destination.”
“Never have I been as vain as I was when I left The Waterhouse Young clinic after my rehydrating facial. Not a mirror did I pass without staring in awe at my reflection. My skin was dewy and glowing and for the first time in years I felt confident enough to leave the house without having applied foundation.”
"For great skin this summer, the key is to think ahead! If you want your face to look tip top, then head down to Waterhouse Young. Expect your face to glow the after their HydraFacial, as if your thirsty skin has had a big drink."
“It’s not easy knowing who to trust with something as personal and visible as your face. At Waterhouse Young I feel completely confident that I will leave looking a better version of myself, having learnt something in the process that will help me to slow down the signs of ageing.”
“Dr Saira was knowledgeable and made the whole experience informative and relaxing.”
“As soon as I entered the Waterhouse Young clinic, I knew that the experience was going to be one to remember. The HydraFacial and Intraceutical Infusion are both divine treatments, they left my skin, face and décolleté feeling healthy, hydrated and glowing – even my fiancé noticed the instant improvement! It was the perfect pre-wedding preparation and I felt amazing on my special day. I’m recommending it to everyone.”
“That was the best treatment I have had! Skin glowing.”
“The difference in my skin is unbelievable since the guys at my Dad’s new clinic have been looking after me. As a model, my job involves a lot of travelling and long hours, yet the team still manage to keep my skin clear and glowing. As the camera never lies, I couldn’t do without their awesome treatments.”
“Wow, it was totally amazing, my skin looks and feels so much better! Having had a patch of generally dull and lacklustre skin I am just so impressed by it. All about the results-driven facial.”
“Really knowledgeable staff, and state of the art treatments. Would recommend to anyone.”
“Having tried and tested many hair removal lasers over the years, I have been mightily impressed with the new Soprano ICE as not only is it completely pain free but after just one treatment I noticed an immediate difference. The efficacy of this treatment and the professionalism of the staff at the Waterhouse Young clinic are a winning combination – if you want smooth legs this summer don’t go anywhere else”.
“I have personally had 14 HydraFacial treatments at Waterhouse Young. I cannot fault the service offered in any way and my dermatological issues have been improved quite dramatically. What I like about the company and its practice is that they do not advise patients on having treatment just for the sake of it! I have had so many comments about my skin. Everyone wants to know the secret! It’s Waterhouse Young.”
“The Hydrafacial at Waterhouse Young has changed my life! Thanks to Anna the wonderful therapist who treated me…I’ll see you soon :))”
“I am delighted with the results from Dr Saira. She put me at ease and I learnt a lot about skin ageing. The results are natural yet really effective so I’m already looking forward to my next treatment with her.”
"My hectic schedule means my face often takes a huge strain. Early morning TV, running in cold blustery winds, not to mention the sleepless nights that come with having young children. I can truly say that the HydraFacial at WaterHouse Young has done wonders for my skin. I often get comments from people on how good my skin looks, especially in the days after I have just had a facial."
"Working in the beauty industry for the last 14 years has made me very conscious of my own skin. On visiting I was delighted with the warm welcome I received. The technology at the clinic was able to show me where I needed attention. It was decided I would benefit from a Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion facial. The following day my skin glistened and felt soft and revitalised. I can’t wait to go back!”
“The team at the Waterhouse Young Clinic are lovely. The skin analysis was really helpful to determine my weak areas and to plan a better skin care regime. I had a HydraFacial and have been using the recommended products and can already see a difference with my skin being clearer and brighter. Waterhouse Young have definitely just become my must-have ritual. I would certainly recommend people – in fact I already have.”
“Waterhouse Young is the epitome of luxury clinics that delivers outstanding results. Beautiful surroundings, knowledgeable staff and a solid understanding of skin and the way it ages, means that you leave with skin better than when you walked in. I can’t recommend them enough, my skin is positively glowing.”
“I can’t tell you how many people have commented on my skin following the facial. An hour of relaxing indulgence with lasting results. Ten Years Younger isn’t just a TV programme, it’s what happens at Waterhouse Young.”
“What a lovely experience – my skin felt instantly transformed. Going to the clinic is such a treat and the team welcome you like an old friend. I highly recommend all ladies (and men) that do – and those that should – come here.”
“I’d struggled with poor skin - adult acne exacerbated during pregnancy - for years and was completely fed up until a friend put me in touch with the lovely Anna at Waterhouse Young. Rosie then treated me and I am beyond thrilled with the results. Next stop hair removal.”
“The photos of my wedding are the proof in the pudding of Waterhouse Young’s Intraceuticals treatments and the TLC they give their clients. I had a young baby went I got married and, had I not know about this brilliant team and what they do for your skin, the pictures and wedding guests would tell another story!”
"I'd never had a skin treatment as such before but felt motivated to do so as my face was ageing faster than I liked - particularly obvious at work and definitely after several nights of entertaining clients! EndyMed with HydraFacials have been a revelation."
"Sometimes you try a treatment and know it’ll be your saviour for a long time to come! I love how mesotherapy has smoothed my facial lines and the glow it has brought back to my skin is incredible."
"I think I’ve discovered the facial of the century and I'm not the type to gush. Waterhouse Young claim to be experts on skin and they are. It was the first time I've had a clinical facial and I didn’t know what to expect so Anna talked me through the treatment - it was so comforting and knocked 10 years off me. I could not stop looking at my skin as it hasn't looked that good in a long time. You have to see it to believe it. It's incredible."

What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA), also called botulinum toxin type A, is an injectable treatment made from highly purified toxins from the bacteria that causes botulism.
Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in their movement. As many of the fine lines and wrinkles on our faces are caused by the repeated contraction of our facial muscles, Botox can significantly reduce their appearance.
What happens during a treatment?
When you arrive for your treatment at our clinic in London, we’ll remove any make-up around the area to be treated and then get you to make certain facial expressions so that we can mark the points on your face or neck that we plan to inject. Once this is done, we will use an incredibly fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox into the targeted muscles.
There should be little to no signs of botox treatment in our Harkey Street District clinic, other than mild swelling until the product injected has settled; this doesn’t take long. Other than that there may be a bit of redness and, in rare cases, some mild bruising. You should be able to leave and continue with your day as normal.
What can it be used to treat?
You may be bothered by deepening horizontal lines on your forehead, vertical frown lines between your eyebrows, crows’ feet, smokers’ lines, neck bands, or lines that are beginning to appear and pull down the corners of your mouth. We can use the wrinkle treatment to drastically improve any or all of these problem areas.
It also offers a highly effective treatment option for excessive sweating because it can be injected into the sweat glands to reduce sweat production by up to 90%. If you suffer with hyperhidrosis, this treatment can be life changing.
We are also able to use the treatment to relax your jaw if you’re someone who grinds their teeth.
Will my treatment hurt? Can baby botox be used?
Cosmetic injections for wrinkle treatments typically feel like a pinprick and you won’t need an anaesthetic. If you are worried at all, please let us know as it is possible to apply an anaesthetic cream to more sensitive areas. We can also look at starting out with small amounts of the treatment (known as baby botox).
As our doctors at our clinic we have a great deal of skill and experience carrying out botox treatment, they are quick and focused on making sure that you feel comfortable at all times.
How long will my treatment take?
You may have heard Botox wrinkle treatments referred to as a ‘lunchtime’ procedure – this is because the injections can be done relatively quickly. Naturally, it depends on the size of the area being treated but treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes.
Of course, we’ll never rush your treatment. We want you to feel relaxed, informed and in safe hands every step of the way.
How much does the wrinkle treatment cost?
We will discuss the exact price of your treatment during your consultation as it will depend on the area(s) to be treated. Prices start from £300.
