What are Polynucleotides

These injectables have the ability to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin, similar to skin boosters like Seventy Hyal and Profhilo, however they have bio-stimulating properties. Polynucleotides are filtered, ultra-processed and sterilised DNA fractions with the aim of rejuvenating the skin. They're predominantly derived from salmon DNA.

Polynucleotides are designed to stimulate fibroblasts, promoting tissue repair, enhancing cell turnover, increasing elasticity and stimulating collagen production. Additionally they have the ability to balance skin pigmentation and resulting in a more even and balanced skin tone without adding volume like traditional dermal fillers.

Results are firmer skin which is highly moisturised with wrinkles and fine lines reduced. It also reduces dark circles and puffy eyes.

What are Polynucleotides used for

Minimal Downtime and Discomfort level

One of the least painful treatments, you can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure.

How long to see results

This differs from patient to patient, however results are usually seen in about three to five weeks, with the target results expected from 3+ months after the course of treatment has been offered.

Results also depend on the degree of ageing and its ability to create quality tissue when stimulated by the polynucleotide. It is important to maintain a healthy nutritious diet and reduce alcohol consumption and smoking to help repair the skin holistically.

Average sessions required

2-3 sessions one month apart

 followed by top ups every 6-9 months
