What are polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are like tiny Lego blocks that make up DNA and RNA, which are regarded as the instruction manuals for living things. They carry important information that tells our cells how to work and grow.

Polynucleotides have been used successfully in medicine for burns and wound healing since the 1970s, but they’re now getting attention in the aesthetic world.

The polynucleotides we use are derived from highly purified and sterilised DNA from fish. When they’re injected into our skin, they regenerate damaged and aged skin cells to enhance skin quality.

What does polynucleotide treatment involve?

Before you undergo treatment, we will cleanse the skin to remove any dirt and debris. We will then apply a numbing cream to reduce discomfort before administering multiple injections or use a cannula across the treatment area. A series of three treatments, three to four weeks apart, is recommended for best results.

They can be used anywhere on the face, even under the eyes, on the neck, décolletage, hands, arms and knees.

What results are expected from polynucleotide treatment?

After treatment, you can expect to see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, less hollowing and shadowing under your eyes, as well as better skin tone and texture. Polynucleotides can also be used to improve the appearance of acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation and scarring.

How long do results last?

Everyone ages at a different rate, so the length of time results last varies from person to person. Generally, you can expect your results from polynucleotide treatment to last between six and nine months.

Can I have polynucleotides alongside other treatment?

Absolutely! Polynucleotides are a perfect treatment to have alongside other procedures such as dermal fillers, lasers, chemical peels, radiofrequency and surgery. They’re widely known for their ‘skin priming’ effect, so help prepare your skin for other treatments and make it more receptive to great results. If used after other treatments, they can enhance results.

Are there any side effects to polynucleotide treatment?

Polynucleotides have an excellent safety profile. As with any injection, you can expect your skin to look quite swollen and red afterwards, but this calms after a few hours. You may experience pin-prick bleeding and some itchiness, but it is important to avoid touching the treated area for at least 12 hours. Some bruising may also occur and, if the treatment is under the eye, the swelling may take up to two to three days to fully resolve.

Do polynucleotides replace dermal fillers?

They do not because they do not replace deep volume loss however, by improving the skin quality especially under the eye area, you will need less dermal filler to achieve desired results.

How much does polynucleotide treatment cost?

Prices for polynucleotide treatment start at £325. Book a consultation to find out more.
