I was recommended to see Dr Yiannis by a friend who had been a patient of his for many years and had always had excellent results. From the moment of contact he was extremely professional in the delivery of comprehensive information on the options of treatments and the what to expect from anti-wrinkle treatment. Upon arrival at the clinic Dr Yiannis was extremely welcoming and made me feel at ease straight away. He took his time to talk me through the treatment, understand any possible complications and consent to what he was doing.
The anti-wrinkle treatment was completely pain free, and I experienced no complications. The results looked extremely natural and within a few days I could see the benefits.
I will most definitely be using Dr Yiannis for all future treatments and look forward to my next visit.
I’ve been seeing Dr Yiannis for my anti-wrinkle treatments for a few years now and I’m really happy with the results. He is polite, professional and knowledgeable. Our discussions are very frank (especially about treatments/expectations). Every treatment he has suggested has been tailored to my specific needs. I couldn’t recommend him more.
The treatments I have received to date from the Anti Wrinkle Clinic - London have been incredibly successful. The care and attention received from Dr Yiannis has always been very professional, caring and considered. I would highly recommend him and his clinic to anyone looking to address Skin treatments of this nature.
