Sunekos is a treatment used to correct dark circles under and around the eye area.

Like Profhilo, Sunekos is a non traditional cosmetic injectable that has effectively filled a gap in the treatment catalogue.

What makes Sunekos special is that it is not about volume or correcting a deficit like an under eye filler treatment might be. It is specifically formulated to provide the skin in the region with the building block it needs to improve structure. This in turn improves the quality of the very thin skin in the peri-orbital area and we see excellent results in terms of improving dark circles under the eyes.

sunekos cosmetic injections

Sunekos is popular among men and women alike as dark circles are a concern many people face. As such it is suitable for everyone concerned with this issue.




What is Sunekos?

Sunekos is a patented formulation of amino acids that gets made up in a solution of hyaluronic acid, one of the most used skin products around.

It is a non-traditional cosmetic injection that is used to treat issues not readily addressed by anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers.

It is used to greatly improve skin quality and structure and so improve the area without volumizing it.



How does Sunekos work?

Amino acids are the building blocks of the structural components of our skin and in particular our extra-cellular matrix (ECM).

The cocktail of amino acids in Sunekos are those specifically used to make collagen and elastin.

When injected, Sunkeos promotes fibroblast activity which induces your skin to produce more collagen and elastin – so it rejuvenates your skin from the inside out.

Can it be used in other places?

Quite simply, yes.

There are actually two formulations of Sunekos:

  • Sunkeos 200 – lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid is used (more suited to slightly younger patients)
  • Sunekos 1200 – medium molecular weight hyaluronic acid is used (if more structure is required)

Both formulations can be used for:

  • Under Eye and Around Eyes
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Décolletage
  • Arms
  • Body
  • Inner thighs



How many treatments will I need?

man with dark circles under eye

The clinical evidence suggests that while you will see improvements in a matter of days 3 or 4 staggered treatments, 7-10 days apart each are best.

This will vary slightly between patients but at consultation what our medic thinks based on their experience will be suggested to you and you can go from there.



Tell me about the treatment itself. What can I expect?

If you are suitable for treatment, we will mark up relevant injections sites around your eyes. The product will be reconstituted and a series of small injections will be performed at each site with a very fine and very short needle.

You will notice some raised bumps at the injection site where product has been placed. These will resolved very quickly as the product spreads out within the skin. As with any cosmetic injection, there is always a risk of bruising.




What benefits will I see from my Sunekos treatment?

After a Sunekos treatment, the product will get to work at regenerating your extra-cellular matrix and improving the skin from within. Fibroblasts will use the amino-acids to promote the production of collagen and elastin. As these structural components are regenerated you should see:

  • Stronger, more elastic skin
  • Improved skin texture
  • A lessening of the dark circles under the eye as the skin improves
  • All around improved skin quality in the area treated

Results, as with any cosmetic treatment, will vary from patient to patient as people respond differently to treatment.



Frequently Asked Questions

It is an injectable treatment that utilizes a patented formula, which combines amino acids with hyaluronic acid. This unique blend of ingredients actively rejuvenates the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) of the skin, providing deep hydration and a plumping effect to the treated tissue.

As often happens in the field of aesthetic medicine (and medicine in general) prices can vary depending on the quality and experience of each doctor. At Amara, a sunekos session of the best quality costs €300 per 200iu. Amara has a 3+1 free treatment program to start option.

No. they are not. While they are both injectable procedures aimed at enhancing the skin’s overall aesthetics, they have different components and applications.

Typically, the duration of the outcomes from Sunekos treatment is approximately 6/12 months, but the longevity of the results can vary based on several factors, including lifestyle, genetics, the natural aging process of your skin, and the number and frequency of treatments received.

Sunekos functions as a dermal filler incorporating hyaluronic acid, while Profhilo comprises a combination of diverse collagen types. Both treatments are effective in diminishing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, while also providing a volumizing effect to the skin. Sunekos is commonly administered on the face, whereas Profhilo can be applied to the face, neck, and body.

Sunekos operates in a physiological manner, and its standard facial protocol involves four injections. It is frequently observed that noticeable enhancements can be seen even after the initial session.

The protocol typically entails four treatments spread over a 3 to 4 week timeframe, with the number of sessions varying based on the specific area being treated. Each treatment session typically lasts around 15 minutes.

This treatment effectively addresses and safeguards the dermis against the effects of aging. It stands out as the sole natural product in professional dermo-aesthetics that actively promotes the production of collagen and elastin, thus revitalizing the skin’s elasticity and restoring its volume.

This procedure requires no downtime, so patients can resume their regular activities immediately after treatment. Still, it is advised to refrain from swimming for 48 hours following the treatment, to avoid exposure to extreme temperatures for at least 7 days, and to refrain from massaging the treated area for 24 hours.

It is common to experience symptoms such as redness, tightness, itchiness, and swelling in the treated area following the procedure. The treated area may also feel tender and firm for a period of up to eight weeks. Bruising at the injection site is a frequent occurrence.

Patients typically report mild and manageable discomfort during the procedure. A common sensation reported is a warm feeling in the skin immediately after the injections. Pain tolerance varies among individuals, and we are pleased to know any concerns before any procedure.

No, the effects of the product will gradually diminish over time, allowing your natural aging process to resume. It’s important to note that this treatment does not halt or prevent the natural aging process from occurring.

It is very rare for it to have serious complications. Sunekos is considered a safe skin booster because it does not pose a risk of vessel blockages, which sets it apart from certain other skin booster treatments on the market.

Non-surgical treatments can serve as excellent alternatives to invasive surgical procedures, especially in cases where significant intervention is not needed or feasible. However, it is crucial to keep in mind that non-surgical treatments yield different outcomes, often resulting in more subtle changes compared to cosmetic surgery.

Attaining subtle volume restoration in treated areas is achievable, although the extent of the results is contingent upon the specific location and degree of volume loss. Sunekos proves effective in addressing volume loss in areas like the tear trough, but it may not provide the volume replacement necessary for concerns like cheek augmentation. In such cases, alternative methods such as dermal fillers would be more appropriate to achieve the desired outcome.

Absolutely! Sunekos functions in a complementary manner alongside conventional injectable treatments.

Yes. It is safe for all skin types and tones. Sunekos aids in promoting an even distribution of melanin within the skin, resulting in reduced discoloration, improved skin tone, and a smoother texture that minimizes bumps.

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!
I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)
