Are Polynucleotides Better Than Profhilo?

Updated: Mar 19

The world of aesthetic medicine is ever changing and every now and then a revolutionary treatment emerges - polynucleotide treatments are one of those game changers. 


Profhilo and Polynucleotides are both injectable skin treatments that aim to improve skin elasticity, hydration, and overall appearance. But is one better than the other? 


Personally, I love both of these treatments, but I’m not surprised that everyone is comparing them. To see if one really is better than the other, let’s look at what exactly Polynucleotide Treatments are and how they work. 


What are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are large molecules composed of nucleotides, which are the building blocks of DNA and RNA. They play a crucial role in various biological processes, including cell growth and repair.


So you can see why they’ve made such a splash in aesthetic medicine! We use polynucleotides for their regenerative properties to stimulate skin rejuvenation at a cellular level.


Polynucleotide treatments involve injecting these molecules into the skin where they stimulate cell regeneration and boost collagen production. This results in improved skin elasticity and texture, reduced wrinkles, and enhanced hydration - all contributing to a more youthful appearance.


The Benefits of Polynucleotides


There are a lot!


  • Less risk for an allergic reaction or side effects. They provide a natural solution for ageing skin as they use DNA extracts to stimulate your body's own healing process compared to other treatments that use synthetic materials.

  • Is great for under the eyes for those who aren’t suitable for tear trough filler.

  • They can be used anywhere on the body. This makes them a versatile treatment option for those looking to improve their overall skin condition.

  • Can successfully treat acne scarring, rosacea and targets deeper lines and wrinkles.

  • Natural looking and long lasting results. This is because Polynucleotides stimulate your body's own collagen production rather than introducing foreign substances into your body.


Now Let’s Look At Profhilo


Profhilo is another injectable treatment that aims to rejuvenate the skin. Unlike polynucleotides, which use DNA extracts, Profhilo uses hyaluronic acid – a substance naturally found in the body that helps keep the skin hydrated and plump.


Profhilo works by slowly releasing hyaluronic acid into the skin over a period of 28 days. This stimulates the production of four different types of collagen and elastin, resulting in improved skin elasticity, reduced wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance.


The Benefits of Profhilo


  • Less of a risk of allergic reactions. This is because it uses hyaluronic acid – a substance naturally found in the body.

  • Natural looking and long lasting results. Just like Polynucleotides, Profhilo stimulates your body's own collagen production rather than introducing foreign substances into your body!


Polynucleotides vs Profhilo: Which is Better?


So, are Polynucleotides better than Profhilo? As you can see, they’re very similar in their benefits - improved skin elasticity, reduced wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance – and they both use substances naturally found within the body.


If you like the idea of a treatment that uses DNA extracts to stimulate your body's own healing process, then Polynucleotides may be the better option for you. On the other hand, if you prefer a quick treatment that uses hyaluronic acid to improve skin hydration and plumpness, then Profhilo may be more suitable.

The Future of Polynucleotide Treatments


With their ability to deliver long-lasting results and address a wide range of skin concerns, you can see why Polynucleotide Treatments are taking the world of aesthetics by a storm. This is just the beginning of these advanced treatments, and as always, we will be keeping on top of all future research into Polynucleotides and their role in medical Aesthetics! 


During your consultation we will discuss all options when it comes to natural looking, long term results, including Polynucleotide Treatments. Remember: beauty isn't about erasing signs of ageing completely but enhancing your natural features and promoting healthy skin from within. And with innovative treatments like polynucleotides on offer, achieving this has never been easier!
