How does Polynucleotides differ to Profhilo

While the two treatments ultimately have similar visual effects, the way each treatment works is different.


Profhilo® is a revolutionary 'beneath the skin' hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into the skin, Profhilo® stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.

One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo® not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women, as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.


This is also an injectable treatment, but it differs by stimulating the regeneration of the skin. Sourced from the DNA of salmon, it stimulates the skin’s own cells to naturally reproduce the elasticity that we lose in the ageing process. Polynucleotides boost elastin and collagen by increasing the quantities of cellular components, as well as improving tissue regeneration and restoring skin tone and elasticity. Additionally, it has an antioxidant and hydrating effect, which will result in skin that looks and feels younger and healthier.

Furthermore, Polynucleotides work in all the areas many skin boosters cannot, such as around the eyes, forehead and lips. Ideal for those not keen on the idea of dermal filler, they’re flexibility means they’re commonly used effectively under the eyes, around the jawline and cheekbones and for the face and neck.
