Polynucleotides

Polynucleotides

Polynucleotides are an injectable serum used to reduce wrinkles, diminish crepiness, scars, and brown spots, tighten pores, and reduce stretch marks on the body.

In the context of skin, they do three main functions:

  1. Stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen, which exerts a powerful anti-aging effect & reduces photoaging, including fine lines & wrinkles.
  2. Boost collagen and elastin production by up-regulating the fibroblast cells, as well as improving tissue regeneration and restoring skin tone and elasticity
  3. Help skin cells repair and regenerate, and have profound regenerative effects on the skin, helping to repair damage and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin

Polynucleotides, which are injectable serum derived from salmon or trout sperm DNA, mimic human DNA and function as messenger proteins. Some people refer to them as “biostimulators”. These proteins interact with cells, enhancing the production of fibroblasts responsible for generating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, essential for resilient skin.

Polynucleotides and injectable skin boosters have similar effects, but rather than merely hydrating, like hyaluronic acid skin boosters such as Profhilo, polynucleotides actively signal cells to produce collagen and elastin. They address areas where many skin boosters cannot, such as the forehead.

Polynucleotide contains animal-derived ingredients, making it unsuitable for vegetarians, vegans, or individuals with fish allergies. Additionally, it is not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, as is the case with any injectable procedures. However, due to its natural composition and versatility in application, it will be suitable for most patients.

Polynucleotides treatment typically involves two to three sessions, spaced approximately two weeks to four weeks apart, depending on the patient’s needs. Before administering the injections, we may apply a local anaesthetic cream to numb the area, and then inject the product into the targeted area of the face or neck.

For under-eye treatments, Faceit by Ian uses a tiny mesotherapy needle or alternatively can use a nano needle. The nano needle can help to minimise any bruising.

The procedure itself is relatively quick, and although there may be some discomfort during the injections, most patients tolerate it well.

Patients will begin to notice results quite soon after the initial session, but the second session jumpstarts the remodelling process. The product continues its effects for the first 12 weeks, progressively improving over time. However, patients will experience an early improvement and lift after the first session.

Typically, the effects of polynucleotide treatments last for approximately six months before requiring a maintenance session.
