How do Polynucleotides work?

By stimulating fibroblasts, polynucleotides boost collagen production, improve elasticity and increase hydration. The also calm inflammation and rebalance melanocyte activity to create an even and refreshed skin tone.

What should I expect during my consultation?

The consultation process serves as an opportunity to meet your medical practitioner, discuss the treatment in depth and assess suitability of treatment.

Which areas of the body can Polynucleotides treat?

Polynucleotides are a very versatile injectable, which can be injected effectively under the eyes, face, along the cheek bone, jaw line, neck, décolletage and even into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.

Is there any downtime?

The procedure is very quick, taking around 45 minutes. Swelling and bruising can occur. Bruising may be present for 7-10 days and swelling depends on the location and product used.

How long will it take to see results?

A clinical study involving 15 patients treated with polynucleotides found that, after 20 weeks, hydration had improved by 115% and elasticity was increased by 38%. A mice study also found that epidermal thickness increased by more than 50% and collagen was boosted by 47%.

How long will the results last?

Results generally last between 6 and 9 months.

Are there side effects?

Side effects that can occur include redness and swelling, which settles after 1–2 days. Depending on the injection technique used, small papules can also be observed that, again, will settle after a few days.

Can I have this treatment if I have a fish allergy?

Thanks to the intensive purification process (protein is extracted from the product prior to injecting), they have a very low risk of causing an allergic reaction. However, your medical practitioner may want to perform a product test prior to commencing treatment. This will be discussed during your bespoke consultation.
