What are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are the building blocks of DNA, possessing natural healing and regenerative properties. In aesthetic medicine, polynucleotides extracted from salmon DNA are used due to their remarkable compatibility with human skin and their potent hydrating and tissue-regenerating abilities


Benefits of Polynucleotide Treatment:

1. Stimulates Collagen Production: Polynucleotides boost collagen synthesis, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

2. Enhances Skin Hydration: Their ability to bind and retain water molecules ensures deep and sustained hydration of the skin.

3. Promotes Healing and Repair: They accelerate tissue repair and healing, making them ideal for post-procedure care and for treating damaged or aged skin.

4. Antioxidant Properties: Polynucleotides defend the skin against oxidative stress, providing protection from environmental factors.


Where can we treat with Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides can be used pretty much anywhere on the body; ranging from facial treatments to scar repair. What’s particular exciting about this treatment is it can be used in the delicate under eye area without causing long term swelling or puffiness – making it a great alternative to tear trough filler which is only suitable for a select few patients due to its associated side effects. So if you feel your eye area looks tired, or is ageing you, this is the perfect treatment to begin to address those concerns.
