Polynucleotides For Under The Eyes

Have you noticed that you look more tired than usual? Have people been telling you to get some more rest? Or is it that your beautiful years on this earth are starting to show in fine lines around your eyes?

If any of these apply to you, you could benefit from Polynucleotides under eye treatment. Keep reading to find out how you can give your eyes a brighter and more fresh appearance.


What Are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are long chains of nucleotides, which are the basic building blocks of DNA and RNA. For aesthetic purposes, polynucleotides are derived from purified DNA, often sourced from salmon or trout.

These substances are then used in injectable treatments, which aim to stimulate skin rejuvenation. By doing so, they help to improve your skin’s hydration and promote elastin and collagen production, which encourage cellular renewal for better skin texture and skin laxity.


What Are the Benefits of Polynucleotide Treatment?

If you’re looking to give your skin a boost and turn back the clock a little then Polynucleotides can massively help, here’s a few reasons why!

  • They can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin
  • They can improve skin hydration and texture
  • They can reduce inflammation and redness
  • They can help to protect the skin from damage caused by the sun
  • They can help to reduce dark circles under the eyes
  • They can improve skin tone and reduce any pigmentation
  • They are usually very well tolerated and have minimal side effects
  • They offer more sustained results than other methods
  • They can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, to improve skin elasticity and firmness.

What Areas Can Polynucleotides Treat?

As we age, fine lines become apparent, not only in the face but in a variety of areas of the human body. Luckily for us, Polynucleotide treatment is effective at treating a variety of skin concerns in various areas of the human body. These can include:

  • Whole Face
  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Scalp
  • Under eyes

How Can Polynucleotides Treat Your Under Eyes?

Your under-eye area is a delicate place and it’s often one of the first places that will start to show early signs of ageing. This can appear as dark circles, puffiness and fine lines.

The under-eye area is particularly delicate and often one of the first places to show signs of ageing, such as dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. Polynucleotide treatments address these issues in several ways:


Boost The Production of Collagen and Elastin

Polynucleotides stimulate the production of collagen and elastin which are two proteins essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. This helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance.


Keep Your Under Eyes Hydrated

By increasing skin hydration, polynucleotides help to plump the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of hollows and making the skin look more vibrant and healthy.


Reduce Signs of Pigmentation

Polynucleotides improve skin tone by reducing pigmentation. This is particularly beneficial for those struggling with dark circles, as it lightens the area and gives a more even complexion.


Have an Overall Anti-Inflammatory Effect

The anti-inflammatory properties of polynucleotides help to reduce puffiness and swelling under the eyes. This can significantly reduce the appearance of under-eye bags to give you a bright and much more rested look.


What Are the Side Effects of Polynucleotides for Under the Eyes?

One of the appealing aspects of polynucleotide treatments is their minimal side effects. Most patients experience only minor side effects, if any. These may include:

  • Mild bruising at the injection site
  • Slight swelling
  • Redness or tenderness

After treatment, you can expect these side effects to disappear within a few days. On the whole, most people tend to react well to Polynucleotides as it’s considered a safe and effective treatment.


How Many Treatments Will You Need?

The number of treatments required can vary depending on individual needs and the specific condition of the skin. To see significant results, we recommend that our patients undergo a course of three treatments.

These three treatments should be spread 2-3 weeks apart to give your skin time to adjust to the polynucleotides. Maintenance treatments are usually recommended to prolong the benefits of this skin treatment.


How Long Does the Polynucleotide Treatment Last?

The results of polynucleotide treatments are long-lasting compared to traditional fillers, as they continue to develop over time. If you opt for this skin treatment, you can expect to see optimal results for at least 6 months before requiring a top-up session.

The length of time that the treatment will last varies based on individual factors such as skin type, age, and lifestyle – not everyone is the same, and neither are their bodies.


How Are Polynucleotides for Under the Eyes Different from Tear Trough Fillers?

While both polynucleotide treatments and tear-trough dermal fillers aim to rejuvenate the under-eye area, they work in different ways and offer distinct benefits.


Tear Trough Filler Treatment

How does it work? These fillers typically use hyaluronic acid to add volume and reduce the appearance of hollows and shadows under the eyes. They work by physically filling in the area to create a smoother contour.

How long does it last? Around 6-18 months.

Side effects? Some bruising and swelling.



How does it work? Rather than adding volume, like dermal fillers, polynucleotides stimulate the skin’s natural regenerative processes. They improve collagen and elastin production, improve hydration, and promote cellular renewal. This leads to a more even skin tone and a long-lasting fresh appearance.

How long does it last? Unlike dermal fillers, Polynucleaotides offer a sustainable development and effects that last around 6 months before requiring a maintenance session.

Side effects? Some bruising and swelling are normal but much less than that found with dermal fillers. The side effects of Polynucleotides tend to be more minimal and the recovery time is much shorter.

I visited the Liverpool clinic for NSR treatment with Dr Lauren she was lovely welcoming and very talented. She went through everything with me in great detail and ensured I was comfortable and getting the right treatment, we discussed my concerns before the treatment so I felt very safe and knew I was in the best hands. I’m happy with the outcome and not to forget the follow up care and call which I didn’t expect. My advice is if you are thinking of getting any treatment then stick with the best professionals in the business and Dr Lauren is an asset to Dr Yusra’s team.

Had very bad hallow eyes and dr yusra and her team were amazing with the process. Being a man it can feel uncomfortable to consider these procedures but they do everything to make it as smooth and comfortable as possible. Listen to the advice! Dr yusra analysed my face and realised it was cheeks that needed some help and not the under eyes, its given me such a fresh younger look and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Title: Exceptional Aesthetic Experience I recently had an aesthetic treatment at Dr Yusra Clinic, and I cannot express enough how pleased I am with the entire experience. From the moment I walked in, the staff displayed a level of professionalism and kindness that instantly put me at ease. Dr. Yusra, in particular, went above and beyond in ensuring my comfort. She took the time to calm my nerves and spent an extended period discussing my reasons for seeking the treatment. What truly set her apart was her thorough explanation of the treatment process. She didn't just outline the procedure; she made sure I understood every aspect, leaving no room for uncertainties. Dr. Yusra's genuine care for her patients was evident throughout the consultation. I felt valued and reassured, not just as a client, but as someone she genuinely cared about. She took the time to discuss various products, explaining why each was the best fit for me. Additionally, she offered valuable advice on other concerns I had, demonstrating a holistic approach to my well-being. One of the most comforting aspects of the consultation was the lack of pressure to proceed with the treatment. Dr. Yusra allowed me the time to carefully assess the costs involved and make a decision that I felt comfortable with. Her advice was not only honest but also presented in a factual and easily understandable manner. In conclusion, my experience at Dr Yusra Clinic exceeded my expectations. Dr. Yusra and the entire staff made me feel more important than just a client, providing a level of personalised care that is truly commendable. I highly recommend their services for anyone seeking not only effective aesthetic treatments but also a compassionate and considerate approach to patient care.

Wow well what can I say? What a lovely lady Dr Yusra is and so talented! She went through everything with me in SUCH detail and analysis in a way I have not experienced before, so before the treatment I felt very safe and sure she would do a great job. She did! I’m so happy with the teaks to my nose which has been wonky for years after several breaks. She also covered my whole face and discussed many areas where there was volume loss, or over active muscles etc. She was wonderful and I will definitely be booking in with her again! Thankyou SO much Dr Yusra!
