Eye bags are a common problem at any age. Some people inherit naturally prominent eye bags, whilst others develop them due to a lack of sleep, frequent travel, unhealthy lifestyle and age. Puffy eye bags can give the appearance of fatigue, poor health and can be very difficult to conceal with makeup.
Dermal filler is a term used to describe a substance that is injected into the dermis of the skin in order to fill or plump the area. We use hyaluronic acid fillers in the upper cheeks and tear troughs (area between the cheek and lower eyelid) to plump the area below heavy eye bags and smooth the appearance of the skin. This is an effective and long-lasting treatment that does not require any down-time.

Polynucleotides are the building blocks of DNA and RNA – nucleic acids that give the instructions for cell function, regeneration and gene expression. As polynucleotides are broken down in our body, they promote DNA synthesis, increase collagen production and stimulate skin repair. Other benefits include increased hydration of the skin, and reduced oxidative damage, whilst improving blood circulation. Collectively these actions help improve dark and hollow under-eyes.
With the advent of plasma-technology, medical professionals are able to non-surgically tighten and remove excess skin of the upper and lower eyelids. The Dr Tatiana Clinic was one of the first clinics in the UK to introduce plasma-technology in the treatment of upper and lower eyelids. We use the PLEXR plasma-pen to vaporise loose skin and stimulate skin tightening. The heat generated by the plasma-pen vaporises the skin to remove unwanted skin whilst also stimulating the production of new collagen, elastin and hydrators to tighten the remaining skin. This is an effective and long-lasting treatment with 7-10 days down-time.

Morpheus 8 is a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency heat energy to smooth and firm the skin. As the small needles enter the skin, the tips of the needles heat up with radiofrequency energy. This sends controlled heat energy into the upper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production, thus tightening, firming and smoothing the skin over several months after the treatment. Morpheus 8 is safe for any skin type and can be used alongside other treatments such as dermal fillers.
SecretRF is an evolution of microneedling with radiofrequency. This device works by precisely inserting small needles into different depths of the skin, creating microchannels, with the subsequent delivery of radiofrequency heat energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thereby tightening the eye bagsx. The motor mechanism of the SecretRF is extremely smooth and it’s needles particularly precise and well-insulated, resulting in minimal downtime and being suitable for all skin types.
This dynamic, non-ablative treatment, pairs RF microneedling with an erbium glass laser. The RF microneedles deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin via precise needles, whilst the laser gently delivers powerful beams to the skin in microcolumns, creating bulk heating. This works to effectively target common signs of ageing and skin concerns in any skin type, with almost no downtime and an instant glass-like glow to the skin.
AccuTite™ offers a safe and effective solution to lift and tighten loose skin whilst also reducing areas of unwanted fat. Common treatment areas include brow-lift, facial folds and wrinkles, bra-strap fat and knee fat. The FDA-approved devices utilise radiofrequency energy delivered via a thin cannula to heat the tissue to a specific temperature. This heat energy causes contraction of fat and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to lift and tighten the skin. Using accurate temperature and energy sensing, we are able to monitor the treatment and ensure that we consistently deliver excellent results.
