Efficacy and tolerance evaluation of an intradermal injective HA and aminoacids based treatment for the area around the eyes

Full description

Primary end point of this study was to evaluate clinically and by non-invasive instrumental measurements the aesthetic performance on the area around the eyes of the"SUNEKOS® 200" injective treatment. Precisely three micro-injection sessions with an interval of 15 days were performed by a specialized dermatologist using periosteal and subepidermal injection techniques, on the area around the eyes of female volunteers with dark circles. An additional aim of this study is to evaluate the product tolerance by both the investigator and volunteers.
