As the transition to fall is upon us, use the power of polynucleotides to prepare your skin doe the season’s changes. These remarkable molecules have a unique ability to stimulate and rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level. By promoting collagen production and enhancing skin elasticity, polynnucleotides help to create a foundation of resilience just fun time for that crisp Autumnal weather. Experience the revitalising effects and step into fall with skin that is not only prepared, but radiant.
Polynucleotides are molecules made up of repeating nucleotide units, which are the building blocks of nucleic acids like DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). In skincare, polynucleotides typically refer to a type of cosmetic ingredient derived from DNA or RNA fragments.
These polynucleotides are usually used to promote skin rejuvenation and overall skin health.
Here’s how they are believed to work and how they can be used to improve skin quality:
Cellular Repair and Regeneration: Polynucleotides are thought to stimulate cellular repair and regeneration in the skin. When applied topically, they may penetrate the skin’s barrier and provide the cells with the necessary components for repair and regeneration, such as nucleotides and other essential molecules.
Increased Collagen Production: Polynucleotides may stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that play a crucial role in maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. Increased collagen production can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Improved Skin Hydration: Polynucleotides can enhance the skin’s ability to retain moisture. They may have hydrating properties that help improve skin hydration levels, leading to a smoother and plumper complexion.
Reduced Inflammation: Some studies suggest that polynucleotides may have anti-inflammatory properties. This can be beneficial for individuals with sensitive or inflamed skin conditions, as it may help calm and soothe the skin.
Enhanced Skin Barrier Function: Polynucleotides may support the skin’s natural barrier function, helping to protect it from environmental stressors, pollutants, and UV radiation.

A HydraFacial is a popular non-invasive skincare treatment that combines several steps to cleanse, exfoliate, extract impurities, hydrate, and protect the skin. It is often performed in a spa, dermatologist’s office, or skincare clinic and is designed to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
Here’s how a HydraFacial works:
Cleansing: The treatment begins with a gentle cleansing of the skin’s surface to remove makeup, dirt, and oil. This step prepares the skin for the subsequent stages.
Exfoliation: A special HydraFacial tip is used to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells. This step helps to improve skin texture and remove dull, damaged skin.
Acid Peel: A mild glycolic and salicylic acid solution is applied to the skin. This solution helps to loosen debris and impurities from the pores and enhances the overall exfoliation process.
Extraction: A patented vortex suction tool is used to extract blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities from the pores. This step can be less painful than manual extractions and helps to unclog pores effectively.
Hydration: The HydraFacial machine delivers a customized serum containing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful moisturizing ingredient that helps hydrate and plump the skin, while antioxidants and peptides nourish and protect it.
Protection: A final layer of serums and moisturizers is applied to the skin to lock in the benefits of the treatment and protect it from environmental damage.
The key technology behind a HydraFacial is the use of a unique handheld device that combines vacuum suction and a series of specialized tips or applicators. These tips are designed for different purposes, such as exfoliation, acid peels, and serum infusion, allowing the treatment to be tailored to the individual’s specific skin concerns and needs.
Benefits of a HydraFacial include improved skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, minimized pores, a more even skin tone, and increased hydration. It is known for being a gentle treatment suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and it typically requires little to no downtime. Many people choose to have regular HydraFacial sessions to maintain healthy and vibrant skin.

At the heart of CaHa (Calcium Hydroxyapatite) effectiveness is its ability to stimulate fibroblast cells. These remarkable cells play a pivotal role in maintaining youthful skin by producing collagen, the essential protein responsible for skin’s elasticity and firmness. As we age collagen production slows down, leading to the formation of wrinkles and a loss of that coveted youthful glow.
Calcium hydroxyapatite is a naturally occurring mineral compound that is a major component of our bones and teeth. In the context of skincare and cosmetic procedures, calcium hydroxyapatite is used as a dermal filler to improve skin quality and address various aesthetic concerns. One of the most well-known brands that uses this compound in its products is Radiesse.
Here’s how calcium hydroxyapatite can be used to enhance skin quality:
Volume Restoration: Calcium hydroxyapatite-based dermal fillers are utilized to restore lost volume in specific areas of the face. As we age, our skin gradually loses collagen and fat, leading to sagging and the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers can effectively add volume to areas like the cheeks, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lines around the mouth), and jawline, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Collagen Stimulation: What sets calcium hydroxyapatite fillers apart is their ability to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Over time, the microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite serve as a scaffold for the formation of new collagen. This natural collagen production can help improve skin elasticity, firmness, and overall quality.
Wrinkle Reduction: Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers can effectively fill in wrinkles and fine lines, reducing their visibility and creating a smoother skin texture. This can help individuals achieve a more youthful and refreshed look.
Minimally Invasive: The procedure for administering calcium hydroxyapatite fillers is minimally invasive. A healthcare provider typically injects the filler into the skin using a thin needle or cannula. This approach requires little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
Natural-Looking Results: When administered by an experienced and skilled medical professional, calcium hydroxyapatite fillers can produce natural-looking results that enhance facial features without appearing overly artificial.
Longevity: The effects of calcium hydroxyapatite fillers can last for an extended period, often several months to over a year, depending on the specific product used and individual factors. This durability can reduce the need for frequent touch-up treatments.
It’s essential to keep in mind that calcium hydroxyapatite fillers should only be administered by qualified medical professionals, such as dermatologists or plastic surgeons, who have the expertise and training to perform these procedures safely and effectively. Additionally, potential side effects and considerations should be thoroughly discussed with a healthcare provider before undergoing any cosmetic treatment.
