Aging typically doesn’t affect our skin dramatically, but harmful elements like pollutants and UV rays can hasten the process, resulting in harsh pigmentation, poorly healed scars,inflammations, dry skin and deep wrinkles. Besides invasive corrective treatments, a better alternative is the Rejuran Healer treatment that has been gaining popularity in recent months especially in Korea and Japan.
Rejuran Healer is a highly concentrated polynucleotide-based filler treatment that is obtained from salmon DNA which is both safe and highly compatible for use in the human body. Introduced via fine needles into the intra dermal layers under the skin, the active polynucleotide (PN) ingredient are allowed to be absorbed into the skin layers to effectively rejuvenate and repair damage areas from within.
Polynucleotides (PN) are the strand of chemicals that makes up our human body at the cell level. Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) are polymers formed in newly generated cells to help accelerate the healing process of the affected area by replacing the damaged and aged skin cells with younger and healthier skin. It is safe to say we are using the building blocks of our own natural cells to repair and strengthen our own skin.
Salmon DNA within the treatment, which besides providing you with beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, is also shown to be as effective in reversing the signs of aging by significantly improving and rejuvenating the skin’s natural elasticity and texture. A study has shown that skin that has received treatment with salmon DNA regains their youthful radiance and volume that will last for a long time.
Rejuran is recommended for patients with the following problems on their face, neck decolletage or hands:
- Dark eye circles
- Enlarged pores
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scars
- Dull, patchy skin
- Thin, dry skin
- Scars and inflammations
- Excessive sebum secretion
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Skin oil and moisture imbalances
The problem areas undergo preparation with topical numbing cream to reduce the sensation of pain, especially for those with sensitive skin. Once ready, the skin will undergo the treatment as prescribed by the doctor.
Each session will last from around 30 to 45 minutes, with a trained doctor administering the injections in tiny amounts under the skin in the targeted areas.
Slight bumps and swelling will be present around the treated area, however, this is temporary and will subside in the next 24 hours, allowing patients to return to their normal lifestyle. Within days of the treatment, the following results can be expected:
- Increased collagen production in the dermis layers
- Skin becomes smoother, firmer and more supple
- The overall face and neck shape is more defined from the lifting effect
- Diminishes signs of wrinkles, fine lines and scars
- Improved elasticity of the skin
- Younger, more radiant skin with less noticeable pores
- Skin look more youthful with less dead skin cells and sebum production
Patients are expected to feel a slight prickling in the skin from the injections, but it will not be as pronounced from the topical numbing done before the session.
There are no side effects from this treatment as the active ingredients, polynucleotide (PN), are organic and compatible with our own body. The treated area will return back to normal within a couple of days after treatment, and takes up to 4 weeks to show visible improvements.
Visible results will last for up to 3 weeks from the first treatment, but patients are recommended to undergo a full course of 4 sessions 3 to 4 weeks in between for long-lasting and sustainable results.
To maintain healthy skin conditions, patients can continue to have treatments every six months after the full course to benefit from the long lasting results.
Rejuran Healer is already a very effective rejuvenation treatment on its own. However, it can always be combined with other treatments such as Puresense Skin Booster, botulinum toxin, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and thread lift which work synergistically for optimal results.
