Harper’s Bazaar Digital Beauty Director, Bridget March gets the experts to explain injectable bio-stimulators also known as Polyneucleotides. With advice from The Cosmetic Skin Clinic’s Dr Johanna Ward, they explore the possibility of combining polyneucleotides with other technological treatments.

Polynucleotides, derived from fish fragments resembling human DNA, serve as an injectable bio-stimulator. They enhance collagen, elastin, and tissue regeneration by stimulating fibroblast cells. This bio-remodelling effect also offers antioxidant and hydrating benefits, improving skin tone and elasticity. Injecting Polynucleotides can change DNA expression to counteract age-related cellular decline, promoting healthier-looking and feeling skin.

How do polynucleotides differ to injectable skin boosters, like Profhilo?

  • Dr Ward says, “they work in all the areas many skin boosters can’t; like the eyes, lips, and forehead.”

What is Ameela?

In the field of injectable skin boosters, there is a new addition known as Ameela. It is the latest bio-stimulator injectable treatment that has been rightfully generating buzz.

Ameela, formerly known as Nucleadyn aims to enhance skin structure and increase collagen, elastin, and hydration. It promises results of up to 22.5% fewer wrinkles after just three sessions.

Can you combine polynucleotides (Ameela) with other cosmetic treatments?

  • “The brilliant thing about polynucleotides is that they can be combined with any type of energy treatment,” Dr Johanna Ward says.
  • The above is why Dr Ward loves her double eye treatment which uses Thermage Eyes (skin tightening radiofrequency treatment) with Ameela Eyes.
  • She says, “This is particularly good for dark circles, soft hollowing under the eye and addressing the crepey tissue around the eye.”
