Polynucleotides for the eyes: Are they the solution to dark circles, puffiness and under-eye bags?

Polynucleotides Eyes Treatment, West Malling, Kent

Injectable skincare treatments have been growing in popularity over recent years. While classic ‘tweakments’ like Botox and filler will always have an important place in the world of aesthetics, new innovations in the area of injectables, are changing the way we approach the ageing face. Polynucleotides might just be the future of injectable skincare and are rapidly gaining traction for their ability to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin, particularly around the eye area, promoting collagen stimulation whilst firming and contouring the skin and tackling issues like dark circles and crepey skin.

What exactly are polynucleotides and how are they beneficial?

Polynucleotides are shortened DNA fragments that occur naturally in the body.  Polynucleotide chains make regenerative changes on a cellular level, meaning they can rejuvenate, rejuvenate, rejuvenate. When injected, polynucleotides offer various advantages, including:

  • Enhancing cell turnover
  • Boosting skin elasticity
  • Diminishing hyperpigmentation
  • Minimising pore size
  • Amplifying hyaluronic acid production
  • Reducing hollowing
  • Diminishing fine lines
  • Giving a brighter, radiant complexion 

How do polynucleotides rejuvenate the eyes? 

Dark circles 

One of the primary under-eye concerns for many individuals is the presence of dark circles. Polynucleotide treatment reduces the pigmentation and discoloration that contribute to the appearance of these dark circles. Impressively, results show that they can improve under eye brightness in individuals by over 32 percent in as little as 4 weeks.

Skin elasticity and crepeyness

Loss of skin elasticity is a common sign of ageing, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles and a crinkled, lax appearance. When injected under the eyes, polynucleotides promote greater skin elasticity, restoring a more youthful and supple appearance to the under-eye area.

Under-eye hollows

Deep tear troughs can create a tired and sunken look under the eyes. While Polynucleotides do not fill out these hollows like traditional filler, the treatment does help to subtly reduce the appearance of these under eye depressions by plumping and rejuvenating the skin in this area.

Hydration

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin that helps retain moisture and maintain hydration. Polynucleotides stimulate higher hyaluronic acid synthesis, ensuring that the under-eye area remains hydrated and plump.

Lines and wrinkles

Polynucleotide Treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production which, in turn, improves skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, helping to promote a smoother under-eye area. 

Polynucleotides are ideal for patients who are unsuitable for certain treatments, such as those with excessive bags under the eye area or poor skin quality. In patients like these dermal fillers under the eye area are not suitable and a polynucleotide product provides the perfect alternative.

How long does it take to see results? 

We generally carry out two to three sessions a few weeks apart, and when someone comes back for their second session, we will already be able to see an improvement. There is a big focus now on biostimulators, which stimulate the body to do what we want it to do, and people understand that you don’t necessarily see the effects immediately after walking out of your appointment. After the initial duo or trio of appointments, we recommend a treatment every three to four months. The fibroblasts in our skin that produce collagen survive for around 90 days, so at that three-month mark, another treatment may be needed to boost that collagen stimulation once again.
