EYES AND AGEING
Perhaps the first place where you show your age is the skin around the eyes as its the thinnest in the body. As early as the late 20s, crows feet or smile lines begin to etch themselves into the thin skin on the sides of the eyes. Dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes often come next, usually in the 30s. They are brought on not just by sleepless nights, professional stress, and the responsibility of childrearing, but also by the loss of elasticity in the skin. In the 30s and 40s, many people notice a hooding of the upper eyelids. In the 40s and beyond, extra skin folds accumulate on your eyelids and also underneath your eyes, making you appear more tired.
A heavy groove begins to form between the bottom of your eye and your cheek (the "tear trough"). Makeup application becomes difficult. You look worn out and sad eyed, even when you feel energetic and happy.
Eye creams are expensive, and unfortunately their ability to de-puff and tighten decreases dramatically as we age. In fact, many of the most luxurious brands at the cosmetic counter contain no ingredients with proven medical efficacy.
WRINKLE RELAXERS FOR CROWS FEET
Dr. Nema believes that anti-wrinkle injections are so much more than just smoothing out wrinkles— Botox®, Xeomin®, Dysport® and other neuromodulators, smooth skin, symmetrise and lift the eyebrows, and preserve natural facial expression. Each treatment will be personally customised by Dr. Nema to suit your unique anatomy and goals.
Typically botox lasts between 3-4 months, depending on how expressive you are and how much your move your facial muscles.
DERMAL FILLERS FOR TEAR TROUGH
Dr. Nema is known for his signature facial optimisation, which is his technique for making many tiny changes to features to improve overall harmonisation and balance. Using a subtle approach and comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy, Dr. Nema customises filler treatments for each patient. Typically fillers last between 9-18 months.
HIFU-THE WORLD LEADING ULTRASOUND LIFT
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a non-invasive, non-surgical device that lifts and tightens the face and body for a youthful complexion. HIFU treats all forms of ageing on the face including wrinkles, sagging skin on the neck, eyelids, chin, jawline and brows.
Ultraformer III is considered by many as the world’s most advanced HIFU. During an Ultraformer III treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The treatment ultimately promotes long-term collagen growth for natural, lifted, tightened look - without any downtime.
Dr. Nema recommends this HIFU every 12 months, and perhaps twice in the first year if you have a lot of loose skin and wrinkles.
SUNEKOS® FOR EYES

A patented formula of Injectable Hyaluronic Acid and Amino Acids to stimulate the production of Collagen and Elastin, enabling Extra Cellular Matrix regeneration. Sunekos® is particularly effective in the Periocular Area, to reduce Dark Circles and Bags around the eye. This is a minimally invasive treatment performed by a doctor only. It takes about 15 minutes to inject the skin around the eye with a little downtime. Results last up to a year.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
The clinical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is based on the increase in the concentration of growth factors that are released from alpha-granule of the concentrated platelets and in the secretion of proteins which are able to capitalise on the healing process at the cellular level. It has been invented to restore the natural beauty by starting the natural rejuvenation process of the skin and aiming to make it function as a younger one and to keep the skin youthful and maintain it.
PRP can treat a wide range of skin concerns, including:
· Fine lines and wrinkles
· Ageing & sagging skin
· Upper & Lower Eye Area
· Dark circles
· Acne scars and stretch marks
· Neck & Décolletage

As always prevention is the best medicine.
