What are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are a proven regenerative medicine which is a type of skin injectable, comprising of polymerised, polynucleotide-based injectable gel, that aims to help repair tissue by stimulating fibroblasts, encouraging cell turnover, improving elasticity, boosting collagen production and hydrating the skin. Ideal for repairs, revitalisation and regeneration of tissues.

Polynucleotides can be used to treat acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea. As well as being injected into the upper, mid and lower face, Polynucleotides can also treat the neck, décolletage, inner arms, thighs and knees.

How do Polynucleotides work & what are the benefits?

The polynucleotide chain, in addition to attracting water molecules, has an anti-free radical action, acting as a scavenger of OH hydroxyl radicals which tend to accumulate as a result of stress, cell damage, and external agents such as UV rays. The moisturizing action and anti-free radical activity help to create an optimal environment for the growth of fibroblasts, helping to restore the elasticity of the tissues.

It is classed as a regenerative treatment. The polynucleotides derived from Salmon activate fibroblast and stem cells to regenerate your own skin cells.
