Description: Scientifically advanced, superior silky eye formula targets optimal DNA repair, collagen & wrinkle rejuvenation, dark circle elimination & puffiness

Biomimetic (skin identical) bFGF (Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor) peptides & essential vitamins reduce fine lines and immediately plump whilst stimulating the vital collagen matrix, Hyaluronic Acid production, repair of sun damage, increase in skin elasticity, elite hydration enhancer & glycation inhibitor

Damaged circulation in the capillaries of the skin surrounding the eye area contributes to dark circles. Insufficient circulation leads to a blood overflow which increases pressure on the tissue, resulting in inflammation and bruising. By activating circulation & alleviating inflammation an effective reduction of swelling & discolouration revitalises the eyes

Biomimetic peptides & vitamins A, B & C suspended in a cooling & soothing emulsion is an innovative eye age prevention & recovery system

Skin Type: All / Dark Circles / Puffiness / Wrinkled / PRE & POST surgery / injectables

Application: Use ¼ pea size after cleansing & application of active serums to delicate eye area twice a day. Lightly massage

Key Actives:

Oligopeptide-3 (bFGF) – Medically engineered Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor

  • Recent scientific research suggests that basic Fibroblast Growth Factors regulate a broad spectrum of biological functions, essential in the regeneration of key dermal proteins and connective tissues within the skin
  • Medically engineered bFGF work by sending bioidentical signaling directly to the dermal fibroblast cells, thereby amplifying cellular activity and accelerating rejuvenation of the epidermal and dermal tissues
  • Stimulates mitogenic activity towards dermal fibroblasts, thereby initiating cellular proliferation, migration, differentiation, growth and maturation in dermal fibroblast cells
  • Activates dermal fibroblasts to speed up the generation of connective tissue, allowing the skin to recover more efficiently from injury
  • Prompts the fibroblasts’ production of protein molecules including laminin and fibronectin which comprise the extracellular matrix
  • Naturally stimulates the body’s autonomous collagen and elastin production via activation of the dermal fibroblast cells
  • Clinical studies support that mechanically engineered bFGF:
  • Visibly reduces the appearance of scarring and enlarged pores
  • Improves skin elasticity to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and visible signs of ageing
  • Promotes the appearance of a younger, brighter, healthier complexion while improving the tone and texture of the skin

  • Mimics skins natural trigger for accelerated collagen synthesis
  • Reduces depth of wrinkles & skin roughness
  • Deeply penetrating properties that encourage skins natural healthy function & elasticity
  • Helps stimulate the synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid reinforcing connective tissue as gelatin like material providing structural support (which hydrates & plumps creating volume, definition & a healthy, full look)
  • Works synergistically with Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 promoting overall skin healing & regeneration


Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 - Compound which combines several chains of amino acids to reduce skin inflammation and related skin damage


  • Stimulates regeneration of collagen fibres in the dermis by acting as a cellular messenger
  • Increases hyaluronic acid helping to tighten skin by attracting moisture to the epidermis
  • Skin penetration enhancer
  • Decreases inflammation by suppressing Interleukin (created in response to damage) which leads to cellular deterioration
  • Accelerates healing by relieving chemical pressure on the skin
  • Induces natural collagen production for skin healing and rejuvenation
  • Symptoms of rosacea maybe alleviated
  • Reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones


Transexamic Acid

  • Competes against the natural ligand (a-MSH) on it’s specific receptor(MC1-R) by preventing any further activation of the tyrosinase, and thus blocking melanin synthesis

Matrixyl Synthe-6 - Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38


  • Derived from the tripeptide KMK naturally found in collagen VI and laminins (a protein network foundation of the extracellular matrix. These glycoproteins are an integral part of the structural scaffolding, influencing cell differentiation, migration, and adhesion. Capable of binding to cells, which helps anchor organized tissue cells to the membrane & is vital for the maintenance and survival of healthy tissue
  • Stimulates the synthesis of 6 major constituents of the skin matrix and dermal-epidermal junction (collagen I, III, IV, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid and laminin 5)
  • Matrixyl Synthe-6 evens out skin and smooths wrinkles from the inside by rebuilding the skin where it is needed, particularly on the forehead and crow's feet
  • It’s primary function is to plump wrinkles & restore a youthful voluminous look
  • 62% reduction in wrinkle depth after 28 days with 2% Matrixyl Synthe 6


Dipeptide – ACEi Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors

ACEi prevent Angiotensin I being converted to Angiotensin II. Reduced Angiotensin II levels leads to less contraction of the vessel walls. ACEi also leads to reduced aldosterone release resulting in decreased fluid being retained. This leads to decreased constriction of vessel walls

      I am so happy i found MD. At the beginning of the year i was suffering with post pill acne for the first time in my life and felt so hopeless with my skin. I had a consult with Mel who made me feel so welcomed and hopeful about what we could do for my skin and even gut health (which was affecting my skin). I then continued to get treatments with tayla, who has been so great every single time. The ladies here are so kind, offer you knowledge about the treatments and take care of you the entire process. I recommend this place to all my friends and family, I LOVE IT. ❤️

    • Suzi Adams

      When I first came to MD Cosmetics three years ago, I wanted skin that was healthy enough to no longer feel like I needed to wear foundation. And I can honestly say that goal came true - I almost never wear make up anymore! Mel and the team always make me feel pampered and comfortable. They have totally changed my skin and I’m so grateful I found this place!

    • Emma Wallace

      I have had several treatments with Nurse Laura Barnes at MD and I am thrilled with the service I received and my fantastic results. Laura is so knowledgeable yet approachable and sweet. Thank you MD! I’ll be coming back for years!

    • Tracey Higgins

      Treated myself to visiting MD Cosmetics & I’m hooked. Can’t go past the Professional & Friendly service offered by Mel & her team. Excellent results. Very happy!!
