Polynucleotide Therapy is a type of skincare and skin rejuvenation treatment. It offers amazing benefits for your skin and body.

What is it?

Think of Polynucleotide Therapy as a boost for your skin and tissues. It uses tiny building blocks called nucleotides, which are like the ingredients for life’s recipe (DNA and RNA). When these nucleotides are applied to your skin or injected into specific areas, they kick-start your cells into action, encouraging them to repair and rejuvenate themselves.

How Does it Work?

Imagine your skin and tissues as a house that needs fixing. Polynucleotide Therapy sends in these tiny repairmen (the nucleotides) to get things back in shape. They talk to your cells, telling them it’s time to start rebuilding. This triggers a chain reaction of repair processes, like making more collagen (the stuff that keeps your skin firm) and elastin (which gives your skin its bounce). The result? Smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin.

Where it Works:

It can help with:

  • Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Tightening up loose or saggy skin
  • Fading away acne scars and sun damage
  • Evening out your skin tone and texture
  • Boosting hair growth and thickness
  • Speeding up the healing of wounds and reducing scars


Using Polynucleotide Therapy is like giving your skin a VIP treatment. Here are some of the perks:

  • Your skin becomes firmer and more elastic.
  • Wrinkles and fine lines start to fade away.
  • Your skin gets a healthy glow and feels hydrated.
  • Wounds heal faster, and scars become less noticeable.
  • You might notice your hair getting thicker and growing back stronger.

Best of all, the results stick around for a long time, and you won’t need much downtime.

Pain Level:

Don’t worry about feeling much pain during or after Polynucleotide Therapy. It’s usually pretty gentle. Depending on how it’s done (like putting on cream or having a jab), you might feel a bit of tingling or warmth where it’s happening. But most people find it totally bearable and don’t need any pain relief.

Recovery Time:

One of the coolest things about Polynucleotide Therapy is how quick the recovery is. After your session, you can pretty much go back to your normal routine straight away. You might see a bit of redness or swelling in the treated area, but that usually fades within a few hours or days. Just take it easy on the sun and avoid any heavy-duty activities for a short while to give your skin the best chance to shine.
