The following treatments all stimulate collagen in the skin to improve skin texture and elasticity; they can also improve dark circles and hollows.
Polynucleotide treatments ( PN) are now the most popular under-eye treatment available. They provide more subtle and natural results compared to tear trough fillers, which can sometimes lead to overfilling or an unnatural appearance. By enhancing the body’s natural collagen production, PN treatments can yield more subtle and gradual improvements that blend seamlessly with the surrounding skin. A range of Polynucleotide treatments are available, some of which are specifically for the eye area.

Tear Trough Fillers
Tear Trough rejuvenation is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment using Dermal Fillers.
The Dermal Filler contains hyaluronic acid.
💉💉The treatment involves a sequence of injections with a needle or a cannula. Injections are generally deep on the bone at the base of the tear trough to lift the soft tissue and skin under the eye area.
The recovery time is quick, but patients can expect mild swelling for a few days to a few weeks.
Mild bruising is common after filler treatment of the tear trough.
For best results, you may require two or possibly three gentle, subtle treatments to improve the area slowly. This will reduce the risk of a puffy, overfilled appearance commonly seen with tear trough fillers.
Tear trough fillers are a high-risk procedure, and many people are not suitable for this treatment.
A consultation with one of our medical team is important before considering this treatment. Find out more about tear trough fillers here.
PRP is a natural skin rejuvenating treatment using platelets from your blood.
When activated, platelets secrete and release at least seven different growth factors, which enhance the natural healing processes.
💉💉💉The treatment involves multiple injections with a fine needle.
PRP can treat all the layers of the skin, superficial and deep.
The treatment works well under the eyes; it stimulates collagen growth, improves the blood supply to the tissues and can greatly improve skin tone and texture. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Most people require three or four treatments, one month apart.
