What are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotides are an innovative component in hair care and treatment, particularly for addressing hair loss and promoting hair growth. By directly delivering beneficial compounds to the hair follicles, these treatments can stimulate hair growth, strengthen hair and enhance overall scalp condition.

Polynucleotides are polymers made up of nucleotide monomers, which are the building blocks of DNA and RNA. These biological molecules play crucial roles in cellular functions and regeneration processes. When used in hair treatment, they stimulate hair follicles, encourage the repair and regeneration of cells, improve blood flow and increase collagen production. Polynucleotides are derived from fish (salmon or trout).

Treating Your Hair Concerns

  • Hair loss
  • Hair thinning
  • Improving scalp health
  • Strengthening weak hair

How do they work?

Polynucleotides work in a number of ways to treat hair loss and thinning:

  • Cell Regeneration and Repair: Polynucleotides help in the repair and regeneration of cells, including those in the scalp and hair follicles. They stimulate the production of new cells, which can enhance the overall health of hair follicles.
  • Stimulation of Hair Follicles: Polynucleotides promote the activity of hair follicle cells, encouraging them to enter the anagen (growth) phase more rapidly and sustain it longer.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Polynucleotides possess anti-inflammatory properties, which help to soothe the scalp, reduce inflammation, and create a healthier environment for hair growth.
  • Enhanced Blood Circulation: By improving microcirculation in the scalp, polynucleotides ensure better delivery of nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles, promoting stronger and healthier hair growth.
  • Collagen Synthesis: Polynucleotides stimulate the synthesis of collagen and extracellular matrix components, which strengthen the hair follicle and improve hair density and thickness.

Your Questions Answered

What happens during the treatment?

After the scalp is thoroughly cleaned, fine needles or micro-needles are used to inject the polynucleotide solution into the dermal layer of the scalp, targeting hair follicles. The injections are typically administered in a grid-like pattern across the affected areas. Post-injection, the scalp may be gently massaged to help distribute the solution evenly and any excess solution is cleaned off.

What happens after the treatment?

Temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites can occur but typically resolves within an hour or two.

Will I need to have any pre-treatment?

No specific pre-treatment is necessary.

Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients may experience mild discomfort or pain during the injections, which can be minimised with local anaesthesia.

How many treatments will I need?

Polynucleotide treatments are usually administered in multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart. The exact number of sessions and their frequency depend on the severity of hair loss and the individual’s response to the treatment. A typical treatment regimen might be treatments every 2-4 weeks, for a total of 8 treatments.

When will I see results?

Patients can expect to see gradual improvements in hair density and scalp health. Initial results might be visible within a few weeks, with more significant improvements over several months. To sustain results, maintenance sessions may be recommended periodically after the initial treatment course is completed.

What is the down time?

The procedure is minimally invasive with little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume normal activities quickly.
