Polynucleotide, A New Biostimulator Regenerative Treatment

FRESHER UNDER EYES WITH MINIMAL RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS – THEN POLYNUCLEOTIDE, A NEW BIOSTIMULATOR REGENERATIVE TREATMENT MAY BE THE ANSWER.

Traditionally, practitioners have flitted between hyaluronic acid dermal filler commonly known as tear trough filler or mesotherapy, commonly known as skin boosters to help turn back the signs of ageing under the eyes.

THE USE OF HYALURONIC ACID AND/OR SKIN BOOSTERS CAN HELP TO TREAT COMMON PROBLEMS FOR PATIENTS SUCH AS:

  • Dark circles/ hyperpigmentation under the eyes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hollowing
  • Poor skin laxity

Both dermal fillers and mesotherapy play a huge part as a holistic approach to tackling the undereye area, but we now have another team player – Polynucleotides.

A bio-stimulant regenerative treatment and not only has it piqued our interest and practice within clinic, but we have found fantastic results for our patients over the past year, and knowing it has scientifically backed research, we will continue to carry this out at Aestheticlinix. 

SO WHAT ACTUALLY IS POLYNUCLEOTIDE?

Polynucleotides are a gel-like substance made up of short nucleotide sequences. Simply put, they contain codes similar to sections of your DNA. Their ability to make regenerative changes to the cells allow a final result of:

  • Improves skin laxity under the eyes
  • Reduces darkness/ hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces hollowing
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Gives a brighter complexion

It doesn’t just stop at under the eyes, however! Polynucleotides have huge benefits for all over facial and even body rejuvenation. By its ability to help increase cell turnover, improve skin elasticity and brighten the complexion, polynucleotide really is the protocol we are using widely in clinic.

Dr Uche Aniagwu – a medical Dr and infraorbital/under-eye specialist and enthusiast have been the driving force for polynucleotide rejuvenation. Here’s a snippet of what he had to say during an interview with GlowDay when asked about polynucleotides, how they work and what patients can expect.

Describing the treatment, Dr Uche said, “The infraorbital area is my passion and I have spent years rejuvenating across a wide range of patients, but despite all my work in the facial region, I have been acutely aware of one major limitation – the tools. You see, I was always told, growing up, a good workman never blames his tools. But it’s also true that a good workman can be that much better if he has optimal tools at his disposal. This has been my relationship with hyaluronic acid (HA) in the infraorbital region.

When the idea of regenerative medicine as a segue for treating the most complicated area in this was presented to me, I was cautiously optimistic. That was in 2020. Now, 2 years and over 100 patients later, I am a firm believer in what regenerative medicine, specifically polynucleotides (PDRNs), can do for the infraorbital region. PDRNs work by signalling to particular cells in the body to change their behaviour and generate more of the good things we want: fat volume, collagenhyaluronic acid, and angiogenesis. These things all result in a tighter, brighter, more lifted appearance and it’s all achieved naturally, thereby circumventing the risks associated with injecting exogenous end-products”. 

SO ARE POLYNUCLEOTIDES THE ANSWER TO OUR UNDEREYE ISSUES?

As much as we would love to say yes, this goes against the ‘holistic’ approach we know works so well for rejuvenation treatments. 

With any anti-ageing and skin improvement treatment whether that be injectable anti-wrinkle or dermal filler, we have found with the use of research and case studies that one size doesn’t fit all. One treatment will rarely be the answer to all problems. 

Depending on the case presented this also may look like a combination that includes anti-wrinkle treatment, collagen induction therapy (micro-needling), or even surgical intervention. 

WHAT DOES POLYNUCLEOTIDE MEAN FOR YOU, AS AN AESTHETICLINIX PATIENT LOOKING FOR UNDER-EYE REJUVENATION?

We believe this is one of the most advanced technologies out there for our patients that are looking to treat their undereye region.

It doesn’t compromise on results, keeps patients’ safety at the forefront of the treatment and delivers consistent results time and time again. 

Hyaluronic acid dermal filler absolutely has its place in the aesthetics industry, and it always will – especially for hollowing in the tear troughs. However, polynucleotides are suitable for more patients and provide a method of treatment that filler does not. 

We do advise patients with polynucleotides there is an element of patience needed to wait for the final results, as this is a treatment process.

If this sounds like a treatment for you, and the conversations surrounding under-eye issues addressed in this blog feel like polynucleotides may suit you. Please get in touch with us at Aestheticlinix, Wigan, Greater Manchester, so we can see how we can help.
