What are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are revolutionary anti-ageing treatments that use biological molecules which are essentially chains of nucleotides. Sometimes they are referred to as Biorevitalizers.   

They promote deep skin renewal and induce collagen production, providing long-lasting rejuvenation.

What are the benefits of Polynucleotides?

  • Skin Regeneration: Polynucleotides stimulate cell growth and proliferation, enhancing collagen and elastin production, which are necessary for skin elasticity, firmness, and lift.
  • Wrinkle Reduction: They aid in reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture and smoothness by promoting the formation of new skin cells and enhancing overall skin health.
  • Hydration: They exhibit hydrating properties and improve the skin’s ability to retain water, promoting healthier and supple skin.
  • Anti-inflammatory Effect: They can soothe and calm skin, reducing redness, irritation, and inflammation caused by various skin conditions, including acne, eczema, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea.
  • Suitable for Various Skin Concerns: Polynucleotides can be a potential treatment for individuals with fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, red and sensitive skin, rosacea, and scarring.
  • Versatility: They are effective in treating loss of elasticity in the face and neck, crepey or saggy neck, under-eye darkness, and are also useful for treating various areas like the face, neck, décolletage, upper arms, and conditions like acne, stretch marks, and scars.
  • Safety and Tolerance: Polynucleotides have an excellent safety record and are highly tolerated.
  • Quick and Lasting Results: Results can be seen as early as 20 days post-treatment, and the benefits have good longevity.
  • Cellular Turnover and Healing: They promote cell turnover, improve skin elasticity and hydration, and help heal sun-damaged skin, photoaging, and scars.

How do Polynucleotides work?

Polynucleotides are long chains of nucleotides, which are the building blocks of DNA. They help with cellular repair and regeneration, moisturisation, and protection against harmful external agents such as UV rays.

The polynucleotide chains attract and bind water molecules, allowing them to provide a strong moisturising effect, which can contribute to improved tissue elasticity.

Polynucleotides have a remarkable anti-free radical action. They counteract the skin damage that can accumulate due to various stressors, including cellular damage, stress, and exposure to UV rays, giving them a  protective and cell damage reduction role.

Polynucleotides create an optimal environment for fibroblast growth, and essential cells for tissue repair and regeneration.

Polynucleotides are derived from Salmon and can activate fibroblast and stem cells, enhancing the body’s natural capacity to regenerate skin cells.

This multi-faceted functioning classifies polynucleotides as regenerative treatments, offering a unique and innovative approach in the field of skincare and rejuvenation.

Cheryl Cain, The Good Skin Guru says

“Polynucleotides have been utilised in the medical field since 1986 but are relatively new in the aesthetics field. Polynucleotides or PN’s are an exciting advancement in regenerative medicine, a field focused on repairing or replacing damaged or diseased cells and tissues to restore normal cellular function.”

“Their application in medical aesthetics leads to exceptionally natural yet impressive results, reversing signs of ageing and cellular damage from extrinsic factors.”

“The aesthetic industry is changing and patients are looking for ways to enhance their own natural features without the use of dermal fillers and really focus on skin health so polynucleotides are a really exciting advancement.”

What is the treatment protocol?

3-4 treatments initially depending on the area and condition of the skin.

A further single treatment every 6-12 months to maintain the effect.

Are polynucleotides suitable for everyone?

It’s probably easier to say who this treatment is NOT for:

  • Under 18s
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Active skin infection/herpes infection in the area to be treated
  • Certain serious allergies, particularly fish allergies – check with your practitioner
  • Previous or ongoing auto-immune disease

What are the risks and side effects of polynucleotides?

Obviously, being an injectable treatment, there are potential risks and side effects that your practitioner will go through with you during your consultation.

During the treatment, you may experience discomfort or stinging. If you’re prone to cold sores, injections into or around the lip area could trigger a breakout.

Following treatment, you may have pinpricks of blood at the injection sites, bruising and/or localised swelling, redness and/or tenderness. These typically disappear within a few days.

If you’re concerned about any side effects, get in touch with your practitioner as soon as you experience them. They will be best placed to provide you with appropriate aftercare and advice.

What is the cost of Polynucleotide treatment?

Each treatment is £150 and, if 3 treatments are booked together, £400.

Polynucleotides are a versatile, skin-boosting, regenerative treatment that can offer immediate and longer-term benefits to the skin. They hydrate, plump, provide anti-inflammatory properties, and can help wound healing. They stimulate the regeneration of the skin at a cellular level, and therefore, the tissue will improve gradually depending on the degree of ageing. They can also be used to treat the body and face, including the delicate eye area, and a number of other skin-related concerns.
