At Dr Hanson’s Clinic, we pride ourselves on offering the latest and most effective treatments to rejuvenate and enhance the natural beauty of your skin.

One of the most exciting new skin treatments is Polynucleotides. Like most nutrient boosters, it involves our highly trained practitioners injecting specially formulated solutions containing polynucleotides directly into the skin.

To simplify the science, Polynucleotides are long chains of the basic building blocks of DNA (if you recall the tightly wound strings in the classic ‘double helix’ picture of DNA, those strings are called nucleotides. Because these substances are at the heart of human life, they are exceptionally safe. And in the context of aesthetic treatment, it’s their ‘stringiness’ which encourages your skin’s regeneration and improved elasticity. They have a high affinity for water, keeping your skin naturally moisturised and supple for everyday radiance and confidence.

Polynucleotides (PN) treatments are fairly new to the UK market and have been hailed as the next generation of skin boosters. Derived from fragments of DNA, commercially produced Polynucleotides are usually sourced from salmon – and they work by promoting cellular repair and regeneration.

  • Deeply hydrates and moisturises the skin.

  • Accelerates cellular repair and regeneration.

  • Stimulates collagen production to enhance your skin’s elasticity and resilience.

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines: Polynucleotide injections can help to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This is because they stimulate the production of collagen, which is a protein that gives the skin its structure.

  • Improved skin elasticity: Polynucleotide injections can also help to improve skin elasticity. This is because they stimulate the production of elastin, which is another protein that helps to keep the skin firm and taut.

  • Hydrated skin: Polynucleotide injections can help to hydrate the skin. This is because they attract water molecules to the skin.

  • Reduced scarring: Polynucleotide injections may also help to reduce the appearance of scars. This is because they can promote wound healing.

  • Fewer acne breakouts: Polynucleotide injections may also help to reduce acne breakouts. This is because they have anti-inflammatory properties.

Your skin is unique, and it’s your practitioner’s duty to craft a professional and tailored skincare regime for your needs. We’ll be thorough in ensuring that Polynucleotides are right for you. They are exceptionally biocompatible, so we rarely have to exclude patients on clinical grounds, but we will want to make sure that they will deliver the results you need.

The target area will be carefully cleaned. We may apply a topical anaesthetic, though due to the superficial nature of the injections, many patients find them quite tolerable without anaesthesia.

Your practitioner uses a very fine needle to carefully inject the Polynucleotide solution into the target area. The injections are delivered at a carefully controlled depth depending on the area being treated to ensure that the polynucleotides reach the appropriate layer of your skin for best results.

The treatment usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour.


You can return to most of your daily activities straight away. Any discomfort will be temporary, so while running on windswept hills won’t be a good idea for a day or so, most of our patients get straight back to normal.

Avoid putting pressure on the injection sites for a day or so, and avoid hot places which open your pores (like saunas, for example). If you have any questions or concerns, we’ll be only too happy to help.

Polynucleotide treatment is ongoing, and benefits from boosters; so we’ll invite you for further rounds of injections spaced a few weeks apart after your first visit. You should see noticeable improvements after the first few sessions, with optimal results typically achieved after 3-4 sessions, 4 weeks apart. Thereafter, we usually recommend maintenance treatments every 6-12 months; but everyone’s skin is different and we’ll work with you to establish a practical ongoing treatment plan.

Generally, polynucleotide treatments are considered safe – and you can expect little in the way of side effects. As with most injection treatments, you may experience a little redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site, but this is temporary.
