Polynucleotides ~ or injectable Bio-Stimulators are the latest innovative injectable to storm the Aesthetics industry. This treatment kickstarts the regeneration in the skin. It really is a natural way to improve our skin and tissues on a cellular level.
SO....What are they?
You may have heard about Polynucleotides, the skin boosting and regenerative injectables that have been trending in recent months. They’ve started revolutionising the aesthetics and skincare industry and have become an increasingly popular solution amongst patients for treating the signs of ageing and other common skin complaints ~ for good reason. If you haven’t heard about them yet, don’t worry. We’ll break down exactly what Polynucleotides are, what benefits they have, and what makes them unique from other anti-ageing treatments.
Sometimes, Polynucleotides treatments can be referred to as Biostimulators, Biofillers, or Biorevitalisers (depending on the manufacturer and composition), but they all contain the core anti-ageing ingredient; polynucleotides.
Polynucleotides are a component predominantly derived from trout or salmon DNA. The stretchy molecules are made from fragments of fish which mirror human DNA making them natural, compatible and biodegradable. Aesthetic Nurse Nicola Kitchin explains that Polynucleotides are “like food or medicine for cells, making them produce collagen and elastin and helping to improve the extracellular matrix” (that’s the structural support layer within our skin that keeps us looking youthful, containing those fibrous elements such as collagen, elastic etc).
"What I particularly like about this new treatment is that it increases our offering to patients seeking an under eye rejuvenation. Many patients are not suitable for a tear trough dermal filler and this allows us to offer them something more than an eye cream" Aesthetic Nurse Nicola Kitchin
Polynucleotide under-eye treatment is revolutionising the beauty industry with its innovative approach to under-eye rejuvenation. Polynucleotides offer an alternative to traditional under-eye fillers through its unique blend of rejuvenating properties. This treatment aims to provide a radiant and refreshed appearance by addressing various concerns such as dark under eye circles, crow's feet, dehydrated skin, and poor under-eye circulation. Under-eye concerns such as dark circles, dry skin, and fine lines are common issues that can be effectively treated with Polynucleotide Eye Treatment. These concerns can make us appear tired and aged, affecting our overall confidence and self-esteem. Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid-based, tear trough filler Polynucleotide treatment offers numerous benefits for those seeking to improve the appearance of their under-eye area, such as brightening, smoothing, and colour-correcting dark circles. Instead of aiming to ‘fill out’ the under-eye area with product like traditional filler, Polynucleotide Eyes improves the under-eye skin quality by stimulating the body's own regeneration process making it the ideal choice for a subtle, natural-looking enhancement to the under-eye area.
What are the benefits of Polynucleotide treatments?
Polynucleotides are scientifically proven to:
Stimulate and boost collagen and elastin production
Durably and efficiently repair the skin (and hair) at a cellular level
Hydrate the skin at a cellular level
Improve tissue firmness and elasticity
Have anti-inflammatory properties
Promote cellular renewal
Which basically means they are ideal for:
Lifting and tightening the skin
Improving skin texture and smoothness
Brightening the skin
Increasing volume within the skin
Minimising acne scars
Minimising stretch marks
Minimising/restoring hair loss
Polynucleotides VS Traditional Injectable anti-ageing treatments
Fix not fill
Unlike dermal fillers, which are designed to temporarily plump the skin, Polynucleotides have been scientifically proven to regenerate the skin from inside, at a cellular level, increasing your skin’s hydration levels, collagen production, skin elasticity and more.
See results quicker
Unlike other anti-ageing treatments such as skin boosters that typically take around 3 months to see improvements, improvements in skin quality from Polynucleotide treatments can be seen in just a few weeks.
They go deeper than other treatments
By far, the most popular solution for the signs of ageing has been anti-wrinkle injections, (commonly known as ‘botox'). Whilst this still maintains status as an effective anti-ageing solution, the average treatment lasts around an average of 3-4 months. Most Polynucleotide treatments are designed to last 6-12 months, with the effects also continuing to improve the underlying skin quality long after that.
They go deeper than other treatments
Previously, the most effective injectable for skin rejuvenation we had was known as a “skin booster”. This is a type of dermal filler used to improve the skin’s quality by boosting hydration levels deep within the skin. Our new biostimulators (polynucleotide treatments) go even further, not just increasing hydration levels deep within, but also acting as a skin healer. Polynucleotides compliment the skin’s natural ability to self-repair by interacting directly with the fibroblasts and cells.
What is the cost?
The effects of Polynucleotides tend to last 6-9 months after 3 treatments. We advice patients to invest in a course of 3 treatments 4 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results and then a top up session every 6-9 months to maintain the results.
