Have you heard of the “Salmon Sperm Facial”?


It’s all the facial aesthetics industry is talking about at the moment, but Polynucleotides (known in the media as the “salmon sperm facial after a famous celebrity interview”!) are a regenerative skin therapy with fantastic natural results. They have actually been used around the world in medicine for over 40 years, with extensive research undertaken for numerous applications including bio-regeneration of the skin, improvement of several skin conditions, promoting antioxidant effects, and wound healing.

Who do Polynucleotides work for?

Polynucleotides are a treatment that can benefit almost everyone, and are an incredibly safe treatment with minimal risks and incredible benefits for your skin.

If you suffer from

  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Menopause-related skin changes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hair loss
  • Sun damage
  • Crepey skin
  • Tired, dull skin across the face, neck and body
  • Thinning skin
  • Rosacea

Then polynucleotides could be the ideal treatment for you. The science behind Polynucleotides Polynucleotides are a bio-stimulator of the skin. They are highly purified DNA fragments, isolated from trout and salmon sperm as this is known to contain high levels of the protein arginine which is renowned for its regenerative effects. Polynucleotides are injected into the skin in lots of tiny ‘blebs’, and stimulate our own skin cells (known as fibroblasts) to produce collagen and elastin and regenerate the skin on a cellular level. This improves tissue regeneration, skin tone, elasticity, hydration and has an antioxidant effect, making the skin look and feel healthier.

What is the treatment process?

Polynucleotide therapy requires a course of 3 to 4 injection treatments, every 3 to 4 weeks,
and the cellular changes take around 4 to 5 weeks to start to kick in to see results. The results are long lasting, and a further single injection treatment to combat any new cell damage accumulated over time is recommended every 6-8 months, depending on your individual results.
