Polynucleotide Treatment

As the years go by, our skin cells gradually lose their ability to perform effectively, resulting in a slower cell turnover and a faster breakdown of important structural proteins like collagen and elastin. These proteins play a vital role in keeping our skin plump, firm and radiant. Enter polynucleotide treatment – an exciting advancement in the aesthetic world. Unlike dermal fillers which are used to add volume or neurotoxin injections that relax facial muscles to prevent wrinkle formation, polynucleotide actively boosts your skin’s repair and regeneration processes to address a variety of concerns.

What are polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are a type of injectable bio-stimulator derived from ultra purified natural DNA compounds. Once injected, they communicate with our skin cells to increase production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Polynucleotide treatment is not only a natural way to improve our skin on a cellular level, but it also acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, protecting the skin from internal and external stressors.

What can polynucleotide injections treat?

Polynucleotides can treat a wide variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, skin dehydration and dullness, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scarring, uneven texture, enlarged pores and more. They are an effective all-around treatment for improving the overall skin appearance and achieve a more nourished, healthier, radiant complexion.

Where can polynucleotides be injected?

Polynucleotide injections can be used for any area of the face and body, including hands, neck, décolletage and body scars. It can even be used on the scalp to stimulate hair growth. The treatment is particularly beneficial on the eye area to reduce the appearance of thinning skin, fine lines and dark circles.

Increased Elasticity: By stimulating collagen production, skin boosters can improve skin elasticity, making it look firmer and more supple.

Universal Application: Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and can be used on various areas of the body.

When can I expect to see the results?

Treatment results aren’t instant as the skin will gradually start improving at a cellular level. Although the timeline can vary from patient to patient, you will usually start seeing improvements after a couple of weeks, with full results taking around 90 days to emerge.

How many sessions do I need?

The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient, based on their current skin condition, goals and areas to be treated. This will be discussed with Nurse Julie during the pre-treatment consultation. Although most people will see skin improvements after one session, a series of treatments are normally recommended for optimum results.

Are polynucleotide injections safe?

Polynucleotides were originally used in the medical field for tissue repair and the treatment of psoriasis, eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions. With around 40 years of scientific studies and medical applications, polynucleotides are the gold standard in skin regeneration procedures, backed by several clinical publications.

Is there downtime associated with polynucleotide treatment?

Typically, polynucleotide treatments have minimal downtime. Patients may experience mild redness, bruising or swelling, but these effects are temporary and resolve quickly.

Is the treatment painful?

Polynucleotide treatments are very well-tolerated by patients, and discomfort is usually minimal. Some mild sensations during the procedure might be experienced such as tingling or warmth, but significant pain is very uncommon.
