WHAT ARE POLYNUCLEOTIDES?
Polynucleotides are injectable treatments that involve administering synthetic or naturally occurring chains of nucleotides, such as DNA or RNA, to influence genetic expression. At Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic we use polynucleotides to address aesthetic concerns by rejuvenating skin, reducing wrinkles, promoting collagen production, and enhancing overall skin texture and appearance.
HOW DO POLYNUCLEOTIDES WORK?
Polynucleotides are fast becoming a popular anti-ageing treatment, and work to improve the appearance of the skin by stimulating cellular regeneration and collagen production. When applied, they penetrate the skin’s outer layers and interact with cells, triggering a cascade of biological responses. This includes the activation of fibroblasts, specialised cells that are responsible for synthesising collagen and elastin. Increased collagen production restores skin elasticity and reduces wrinkles, while enhanced elastin levels improve skin’s resilience and firmness. Moreover, polynucleotides promote angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. This improves blood flow and nutrient delivery to skin cells, aiding in their revitalisation. Additionally, polynucleotides possess anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to reduce redness and irritation often associated with ageing skin. The treatment also supports hydration retention, leading to plump, well-moisturised skin. Overall, polynucleotides comprehensively rejuvenate skin, addressing the range of skin concerns we experience as we get older. By targeting cellular processes, they create a favourable environment for skin regeneration, resulting in a smoother, more youthful texture and appearance.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
After a polynucleotide treatment, you’ll notice an improvement in both appearance and texture of the skin. It will become more supple, hydrated, and resilient. Inflammation is reduced, calming redness and irritation. Overall, polynucleotides positively target various aspects of skin ageing, culminating in a radiant, youthful complexion with a noticeably refined, smoother texture and a healthy, revitalised feel. For optimal results, our Cosmetic Doctors often advise a 3- 4 session treatment course, applied 2-4 weeks apart. The results will form gradually over a 2-3 month period, and returning for a top-up every 9-12 months will ensure you maintain your fresher appearance.
