Polynucleotides 

Polynucleotides have been used more widely in other countries before hitting the UK Aesthetics market a few years ago. Their use has massively expanded since then due to their versatility and the results they achieve.

I use only FDA Approved brands, including Plinest, Plenhyage XL, Nucleadyn and Nucleofill to allow for maximum safety and natural results.

Polynucleotides are not a type of filler, they are a stimulator. They stimulate collagen production and fibroblast activity, improve elasticity and reduce inflammation.

Their initial use was in the delicate eye area as an alternative to fillers due to their reduced side effect profile.  The results in many patients were reduction of dark circles, reduced puffiness, tightening of the lids and a reduction in the fine lines around the eye.

They are often described as a ‘gym workout’ for the under eye area with results that are not immediate but occur over a time frame of around 8 weeks post treatment.

They can also be used to boost results when treating acne scarring, pigmentation, fine lines or can be used just for skin rejuvenation purposes to achieve a lovely glow.

Studies have found that Plenhyage XL boosted collagen by 47%, increased epidermal thickness by more than 50%, improved elasticity by 38% and increased hydration levels by a massive 115%.

While it’s new to the UK, Plenhyage XL has been around in Europe for more than seven years and has a great reputation in general medicine for wound healing too.

Polynucleotides can now also be combined in one injectable with fillers as a hybrid product to boost filler results.

At Optimise Aesthetics we have been using the polynucleotides to treat the eye area and to boost acne scarring results but we are seeing their use expand to general rejuvenation.

Polynucleotides are used commonly to treat:

  • Dull skin
  • Course skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven Pigmentation
  • Redness
  • Dark circles
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Surgical scarring
  • Hair loss
  • Not just for the face; hands, neck, chest, arms, knees. Any skin, anywhere on the body.

The results are not instant but improvement can be noted from about three weeks and continues to improve over a twelve week period.

How I can help

My goals when using polynucleotides treatment is to achieve a safe natural looking refreshed and rejuvenated result.  My extensive aesthetic training and microsurgical experience enables me to gain results that are safe and personalised with minimal or no discomfort. It allows me to fine tune my dermal filler treatments to give a safe treatment which is catered to your desired outcomes.

In addition, as a GP my holistic approach to my cosmetic work allows me to explore your medical history and any concerns you may have or have previously had with regards to past treatments elsewhere.  My patients often describe me as calm and reassuring.

I will always discuss budget prior to treatment and will be open and honest about how to achieve the best results according to your budget too.
