In the ever-evolving world of aesthetic treatments, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the many options available. Two treatments that have been making waves in the industry are Skin Boosters and Polynucleotides. But what exactly are these treatments, and how do they differ? This blog post aims to demystify these treatments and help you make an informed decision.

Understanding Skin Boosters

Skin Boosters are a type of dermal filler that hydrates and improves the overall quality of the skin. They are typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a molecule naturally present in our skin. This molecule holds water and plays a crucial role in maintaining skin hydration and plumpness.

When we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, leading to dryness, dullness, and the formation of fine lines. When injected into the skin, Skin Boosters replenish the hyaluronic acid levels, thereby hydrating the skin from within and promoting a healthy, youthful glow.

Skin Boosters are versatile and can treat various skin issues. They can improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and restore lost volume. They are also suitable for all skin types and can be used on different parts of the body, including the face, neck, hands, and décolletage.

The Power of Polynucleotides

On the other hand, polynucleotides are a relatively new treatment that uses DNA fragments to stimulate the skin’s healing process. These DNA fragments are derived from salmon DNA, which is known for its exceptional biocompatibility with human skin.

When injected into the skin, Polynucleotides stimulate the skin’s fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen. This stimulation promotes collagen production, improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

In addition to their anti-ageing benefits, Polynucleotides also have a healing effect on the skin. They can help repair damaged skin and reduce inflammation, making them an excellent choice for treating acne scars and other forms of skin damage.

Skin Boosters and Polynucleotides: A Comparison

While both Skin Boosters and Polynucleotides aim to improve the skin’s appearance, they do so in different ways. Skin Boosters primarily focuses on hydration and improving superficial skin quality. They are ideal for addressing issues like dryness, dullness, and fine lines.

Polynucleotides, however, work at a deeper level. They are excellent for more significant skin concerns like deep wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and other signs of ageing. They can also help with acne scars and other forms of skin damage.

Making the Right Choice

The choice between Skin Boosters and Polynucleotides ultimately depends on your individual skin concerns and goals. Skin Boosters could be the perfect fit if you’re looking for deep hydration and a radiant glow. If you’re looking to address deeper wrinkles and improve skin elasticity, Polynucleotides might be a better choice.

However, it’s important to remember that every person’s skin is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Therefore, it’s always best to consult a professional before deciding on any treatment.
