Frequently Asked Questions
The Polynucleotide treatment works by injecting DNA fragments, called polynucleotides, into the skin. These polynucleotides stimulate the production of new skin cells and boost the skin’s hydration levels by attracting water molecules. This process prompts the skin to rejuvenate itself naturally, enhancing its overall health and appearance.
You can expect a range of improvements in your skin’s quality, such as enhanced hydration, increased elasticity, reduced fine lines, and an overall smoother texture. It can revitalize dull, dehydrated skin, giving it a more youthful, radiant appearance. However, the results can vary based on individual skin condition, age, and lifestyle factors.
While this treatment is most commonly used on the face, it is also suitable for other areas that could benefit from rejuvenation and hydration, such as the neck, décolleté, and hands. Essentially, any area of the body showing signs of aging, dehydration, or sun damage can be treated with polynucleotides.
Most patients find the polynucleotide treatment to be quite tolerable. You may feel a slight sting or pinch during the injections, similar to other injectable treatments. We can also use a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort, ensuring a more comfortable experience for our clients.
The effects of the polynucleotide treatment can last for several months, with some patients reporting improvements lasting up to six months. However, the duration can vary based on individual skin types and conditions. We typically recommend a series of treatments for the best and longest-lasting results.
Polynucleotide treatment is generally considered safe with few side effects. Common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these typically resolve on their own within a few days. As with any injectable treatment, there is a minimal risk of infection, but our clinic follows stringent hygiene protocols to minimize this risk.
