What is it?
This is an anti-aging treatment that focuses on repairing the damaged skin and covering up the aging effect as well. This non-invasive treatment does not use hyaluronic acid like the traditional skin boosters but polynucleotides instead. As it is a DNA oriented treatment, it is perfect for skin rejuvenation.
How does it work?
Rejuran treatment uses DNA obtained from Salmon because these polynucleotides are biologically similar to the polynucleotides of human DNA. It works in multiple ways that include
- Helping skin cell DNA synthesis for regenerating new skin cells.
- Preventing skin inflammations and enhances the removal of free radicals to retard the aging process.
- Stimulating the growth factors like collagen for skin rejuvenation
In simple terms, the treatment improves the elasticity, texture, and tone of the skin besides hydrating the dry skin. This also repairs and strengthens the damaged skin and makes the wrinkles less showy.
How is it carried out?
The Rejuran treatment process starts with a clinical evaluation of the skin. Cleaning of the skin is done first and a numbing cream is applied. It is left to wait for 15 minutes or so to be effective. This makes the skin rejuvenation process more comfortable. Rejuran microdroplets are then injected underneath the dermis layer with the help of a tiny needle. Sometimes this is combined with laser treatment. The whole process takes about an hour.
It may cause minor pinpoint bleeding that stops within a few seconds and the swelling fades out within a couple of days. The treatment is repeated from 3 to 4 times at an interval of 2 to 4 weeks for the best outcome.
Does Rejuran treatment have any side effects?
The principal ingredient of Rejuran Treatment is polynucleotide (PN) derived from salmon DNA that acts as an anti-inflammatory and regenerative agent. Several clinical trials indicate that it is compatible with human systems. Moreover, Salmon DNA derivatives used, in the treatment, are modified to be protein-free and, as such, there is hardly any chance to attack the immune system. Studies conducted so far yielded encouraging results without any serious side effects except the sensation of mild pain and bruising.
Who can have this?
Aging is inevitable. Anyone who wants to retard the process and mask the signs of aging can undergo Rejuran Treatment. This suits people of age 30+ suffering from various skin problems like stretch marks, wrinkles, hydration issues.
Can it be done with other aesthetic treatments?
Usually, Rejuran treatment is done along with other complementary aesthetic treatments for better results. But everything depends on your needs. One should inform the doctor or treatment provider of any pre-existing medical condition and all aesthetic & non-aesthetic treatments and procedures before starting the treatment.
