Polynucleotide Scar

The Polynucleotide Scar treatment has been specifically designed to be injected under the surface of acne scars. It has a higher concentration of polynucleotides to boost the healing of acne scar tissues. This injection will repair the skin at the precise locations where collagen production is needed most. The DNA extract in Polynucleotide Scar is obtained from wild-caught salmon from a specific region in Seoul and is processed in a controlled environment to ensure consistency and good quality.

What is The Polynucleotide Scar Treatment?

The Polynucleotide Scar Treatment promotes tissue restoration, reconstruction and improvement of the physical appearance of acne scars. Optimised for scar tissue repair, each treatment will result in smoother skin, and more shallow acne scars.
This treatment consists of polynucleotides (PN), which is derived from salmon DNA, making it biocompatible with humans so it can be used by almost anybody.

Some may confuse polynucleotides (PN) and polydeoxynucleotides (PDRN). Both substances are made up of salmon DNA fragments. PDRN was widely used in South Korea for skin rejuvenation, enhancing hair growth, reversing the signs of ageing skin (anti-ageing), and skin restoration. In contrast, PN is a newer, purer version of PDRN that has more skin-healing and rejuvenation properties.

What Is The Difference Between Polynucleotide Scar & Polynucleotide Healer?

Polynucleotide Scar and Polynucleotide Healer are both made of polynucleotides (PN), which promote skin cell growth by inducing fibroblast and collagen production. Polynucleotide chains are DNA fragments that repair damaged dermal (skin) cells and assist in collagen stimulation. Polynucleotide Scar is more concentrated and more viscous in texture than Polynucleotide healer, and therefore better suited for acne scar treatments whereas Polynucleotide healer is used for overall rejuvenation of aged and damaged skin.

Where Can Polynucleotide Scar Be Used?

Polynucleotide Scar can be used anywhere on the face for the treatment of depressed acne scars. Our doctors will target your treatment depending on your skin condition and position of acne scars. In addition to shallowing out acne scars, by injecting tiny amounts into the superficial layers of the skin, Polynucleotide Scar also provides the following benefits:

What Conditions Can Polynucleotide Scar Be Used For?

Use Polynucleotide Scar With Subcision For Better Results.

Polynucleotide Scar can also be combined with Subcision to achieve maximum results. Subcision uses a bigger needle and micro-cannulas to break up the fibrotic strands that cause depression in the skin which then releases the tension of the scar. Polynucleotide Scar will then be injected into the base of the acne scar with a 34G needle to stimulate the skin’s fibroblast to induce collagen reproduction and repair dermal skin cells.

Where Is Polynucleotide Scar Injected To?

Polynucleotide Scar creates a scaffold that allows more fibroblasts to stimulate the production of collagen for acne scar improvement. The Polynucleotide Scar Treatment involves the use of non-invasive micro-injections to administer the treatment into the superficial dermis and remain in the top layer of the skin. It stimulates the growth of fibroblasts, a type of cell that generates collagen and other cells within the skin’s extracellular matrix.

More fibroblasts mean more collagen and more newly-generated cells that replace old, damaged ones. It also means that the skin will be smoother and more elastic. Best of all, because Polynucleotide Scar acts as a healing agent, even conditions such as eczema, acne-induced inflammation and old deep-set acne scars can be healed and eliminated.

What To Expect During Your Treatment?

Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to make the procedure more comfortable. Like Skinboosters, Polynucleotide Scar can be injected into the dermis layer of the skin using manual injections with a very small needle. At VIDASKIN, we employ the manual injection technique as it ensures that the product is precisely placed in the correct layer and targeted areas for the best results. Also, with manual injections, downtime with Polynucleotide Scar is minimal.
After the procedure, to further enhance results and recovery, you can have the option of being treated with a cooling mask, LED light therapy or Calecim Serum.

Frequently Asked Questions

Polynucleotide Scar is proven one of the safest and most effective skin rejuvenating treatments that effectively targets scars in Asia. Polynucleotide Scar has 1 ml per syringe. The amount required would be determined based on the size of the scars to be healed. We recommend four Polynucleotide Scar treatments for best results. Keep in mind that there should be a 3- to 4-week interval between treatments. Patients may also request maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months for continuous collagen production.

What’s great about Polynucleotide Scar is that it can be combined with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels or laser techniques. Combining Polynucleotide Scar with these procedures help to boost skin improvement.

Patients may expect mild swelling in the treated area after a Polynucleotide Scar treatment. Your doctor may advise you to apply a cold compress to reduce the swelling.

The regenerative benefits of Polynucleotide Scar can be seen around 4-6 weeks after treatment as it rely's on your skin cell turnover. You’ll start to notice that your skin is getting smoother and tightened, and scars and the size of your pores are reduced.

Polynucleotide Scar is suitable for both men and women, especially ones with damaged skin related to the sun, ageing or acne. Polynucleotide Scar has powerful rejuvenation and anti-inflammatory properties that help with skin healing, regeneration and renewal. It is also excellent in young adults as a preventive treatment to delay the ageing process, so you will always look younger than your age.
