Treatments for the eye area

Introduction to Treatments for the eye area

Due to hereditary and lifestyle factors and owing to the area having thinner skin than the rest of the face, the periocular (eye) area tends to age faster than other areas. If you have noticed dark circles, puffiness, hollowness and wrinkles there are some treatments that could help you.

Polynucleotides (Ameela) Eyes Light Eyes Ultra is specially designed for the treatment of the skin around the eyes and eyelids. It contains an innovative cocktail of hyaluronic acid, ruscosides, vitamin c and antioxidants that are able to improve microcirculation, skin elasticity and puffiness and dark circles in the eye area. It is injected via very fine needles into several points around the eyes and then dissipates into the tissue.

Results are usually seen within 24 hours and improve with consecutive treatments within the course.  Your eyes will look brighter, firmer and smoother, giving you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. The initial course is usually two, but sometimes three or four treatments depending on the condition of your eyes. After an initial course, it is recommended to have top-up treatments every 3-4 months to maintain the results.

Light eyes main ingredients (the science bit!): 

  • Hyaluronic acid – an ingredient that has a decisive impact on the effectiveness of the treatment, strongly moisturizes and smoothes the skin
  • Rosemary extract – antioxidant rich in phytolipids, has tonic properties and stimulates circulation.
  • Extract from the beetroot and berries – has a beneficial toning effect on blood vessels. It has drainage properties. These are powerful antioxidants that inhibit the activity of enzymes that cause collagen destruction and have an effect on reducing tissue elasticity. It has a beneficial effect on blood vessels, regulating the deposition of glycoproteins, which affects the flexibility and resistance of the vessels.
  • Chamomile extract – has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and soothes irritations.
  • Fermented papaya – thanks to the high content of carotenoids, it slows down the ageing process caused by free radicals.
  • Vitamin C – promotes the formation of natural collagen, hyaluronic acid and intracellular substances. It provides protection against free radicals and strengthens skin tissues.
  • Cucumber extract – rich in enzymes, vitamins A, B, C, microelements and sulphur.
  • Hexapeptides – Argilerine, a biopeptide with activity similar to botulinum toxin, reduces the depth of wrinkles caused by muscle contraction, especially around the eyes, and prevents skin ageing caused by facial expressions (mimic wrinkles). It reduces the appearance of wrinkles by suppressing excessive fibroblast contraction and stimulates collagen production. This substance forms 6 amino acids, which help reduce skin tension.

Nucleofill Eyes is an alternative to tear trough filler and helps decrease lower eyelid puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss.  This treatment is safe on all skin types.  It works by stimulating bio-regeneration at multiple layers through the tissues; skin, fat layer and bone. Highly purified polynucleotides (DNA fragments) are injected in tiny blebs around the eyes. They stimulate the fibroblasts in the cells to produce more collagen and elastin and stem cells are drawn to the area so the body can repair itself.  It's specially designed to improve:

  • Puffiness/bag under the eyes
  • periocular wrinkles
  • regeneration and thickening of the skin
  • bio-stimulation of the tissues
  • improvement in wrinkles with botox or fillers

Treatment is usually 2 treatments - sometimes more, two weeks apart. Numbing can be used if needed.
