Due to the sheer number of treatments available nowadays, some patients can find that researching which is most suited to them can be quite an overwhelming and long-winded process. Those wanting to find ways to address fine lines and wrinkles will likely keep stumbling upon Profhilo and treatments containing polynucleotides. Though both are used to tackle some of the unwanted effects of the ageing process, these treatments should be used in different scenarios as there are different things to consider with each one.

How does Profhilo work?

A bio-rejuvenator that is the only treatment to stimulate the production of all 4 types of elastin and collagen, thereby enabling natural skin rejuvenation through the slow release of hyaluronic acid.

How do polynucleotides work?

Stimulates the metabolic activity of fibroblastic cells (main cells responsible for collagen production) to maintain the physiological functionality of the dermis thereby restoring skin firmness, tone, and elasticity, whilst blocking the free radicals which are responsible for premature ageing.

What is Profhilo?

Profhilo is a tissue stimulator which works as an injectable skin remodelling treatment.

What is in our polynucleotides treatment?

Highly purified marine DNA that does not trigger an immune response because of its compatibility with our bodies.

Minimal downtime; light activity may resume immediately.

To Summarise:
If you would like to see more immediate results then polynucleotides are the answer however you should be wary of the possibility of bruising. Another difference is that for some people the fact that the polynucleotides are derived from the product of an animal may be at odds with their personal ethos, for instance some vegans may prefer to opt for Profhilo treatments which do not contain any animal products.
