How Does The Hooded Eye Lift Treatment Work?
Using BIO Micro-Current technology enabled by our PureGenex PureLift+ platform, the treatment is a gentle, completely non-invasive and highly effective treatment to lift and smooth hooded eye lids and brows. The micro-current technology stimulates the small muscles surrounding the eyes, energising and strengthening them to enable a restructuring of the tissues around the eyes. In addition, the treatment promotes NTP production, accelerating cellular repair and regeneration.
How does this have a lifting effect?
There are many small muscles around the eyes, which give us our ability to be so expressive. These muscles need to be exercised and energised just like any others. You can almost think of this treatment as a “workout around the eyes”!
What happens during treatment?
A massage oil is applied to the treatment area, then the Hooded Eye Lift treatment commences. The BIO Micro-Current technology stimulates the structural tissues in the subcutaneous layer, causing them to contract and strengthen, lifting hooded eye lids / brows and delivering immediately tighter feeling skin in the area around the eyes.
The structural tissues around the eyes is lifted, strengthened and energised. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also lifting hooded eye lids and brows. Altogether a more youthful, supple and smoother complexion is achieved, with a significant reduction in dark circles, eye bags and the fine lines and wrinkles apparent in ageing skin.
The BIO Micro-Current therapy utilised within the Hooded Eye Lift Treatment is a “cumulative therapy”. This means it works immediately during each treatment but, in order to achieve optimal results, a series of treatments is required over a period of weeks. This enables the time needed in between treatments for the body to react naturally to the stimulating effects of the therapies and re-construct the tissues being targeted to naturally achieve the objective; smoother, tighter and more supple skin around the eyes, with lifting of the eye lids / brows.

What happens when I come for treatment?
Your Hooded Eye Lift experience will begin with a FREE consultation. During this we will discuss how you would like to improve your appearance and the likely length of treatment required and how those areas will be targeted by the treatments. Following the consultation and the completion of a medical questionnaire, photographs will be taken to enable us to monitor your progress. The treatments will then commence as follows :-
Gentle oils or cooling gel (dependent upon area being treated) will be applied to the treatment area. This is to ensure optimal transmission of the therapeutic energies into the dermal tissues.
The BIO Micro-Current treatment is then configured and the treatment head applied to the treatment area.
The machine is then switched on and the treatment head is moved across the targeted area(s) several times to ensure complete coverage.
After treatment the skin will be cleaned of all oils and gel, leaving the skin feeling smoother, more supple and rejuvenated.
Is this treatment similar to Axent or Thermage RF, or CACI Micro-Current treatments?
The BIO Micro-Current Hooded Eye Lift treatments leverage BIO Micro-Current energy in much the same way as CACI, but with a single hand piece delivering both poles of the current to focus on the thinner tissues around the eyes. This is very different to Axent, Thermage and other RF-based skin tightening treatments, as it does not aim to generate heat in the tissues, or operate on the collagen fibres. Our PureGenex platforms use the latest technologies enabling us to deliver the best hooded eye lifting results possible around the eyes in complete safety.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
The hooded eye lift treatment is specifically designed to be used to treat the only around the eyes.
How quickly will I notice a change?
Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment – with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, more supple and tightened. With a course of treatments, these results will be cumulative. Once the course is completed, final results in hooded eye lift, skin rejuvenation and tightening will be most apparent after 6-8 weeks.
How do I improve and maintain the results of my Hooded Eye Lift treatments?
After completing your course, it is recommended to periodically have maintenance treatments. Like any non-surgical or surgical aesthetic techniques, the results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly, as this provides a stronger platform to maintain your new, healthier complexion. Also, drinking plenty of water to hydrate the skin is recommended.
What do the treatments feel like?
Most clients have told us that the treatment is extremely comfortable and pleasant, feeling like a gentle tissue massage, with a gentle fluttering sensation beneath their skin.
Does it hurt?
Most patients find the hooded eye lift treatments extremely comfortable and liken them to a gentle massage aroudn the eyes. The treatments are customised to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level, which will be closely monitored by the technician throughout the treatment. Your skin may also appear redder than usual for several hours in the immediate area treated, but this will subside very quickly.
Is it safe?
Yes. The BIO Micro-Current energies applied by the PureLift+ are extremely safe and the entire process is completely non-invasive. The process has undergone examination and assessment by several medical bodies. We use the most advanced technology available and have one of the most experienced technicians in the country providing treatments, so you are in extremely safe hands.
Will I be able to drive after my treatment?
Yes. The treatment is completely non-invasive and has no “down-time”. You are free to carry on with your normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
What do I do whilst the treatment is taking place?
During the Hooded Eye Lift treatments, you will need to lie back with your eyes closed. Each treatment lasts between 10 and 20 minutes, so we recommend you relax and enjoy the warming sensation of the treatments as they work to rejuvenate your skin and get rid of those unsightly eye bags, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes.
Who can be treated with PureLift+ BIO Micro-Current?
Due to the non-invasive nature of our PureLift+ BIO Micro-Current Hooded Eye Lift treatments, they are suitable for both men and women that wish to look their best and do not wish to endure the costs and risks of cosmetic surgery. However, there are a small number of clinical conditions that would prevent treatment, please check the “Can I be Treated” tab on this page for more details. If you have any specific questions or requirements, please contact us for more information.
The hoods over my eyes are gone!
I chose to have PureFirm-I specifically for the dark circles under my eyes and hooding of my eye lids. From the very first treatment I noticed a change under my eyes and by the end of my course of treatments I can happily say it worked! The dark circles are gone and my eye lids are lifted and I look brighter! Mear was wonderful and talked me through the treatments before I started, so I could relax and enjoy them. Highly recommend!*
