Polynucleotides – would you inject salmon sperm into your face for flawless skin?

As someone who is always on the lookout for the latest in skincare innovations, I decided to try polynucleotide injections to address the subtle signs of ageing creeping up on my jawline as I near the age of 35.
This treatment, which has been making waves in the aesthetics community, promises not just to hydrate but to fundamentally rejuvenate the skin.
My journey began with my favourite aesthetics practitioner,  Natalie O’Brien, based in Glasgow, who suggested I level up from my regular six monthly skin booster treatments with polynucleotide injections – aka salmon sperm.
Despite the slightly squeamish ingredients, it’s a treatment that’s loved by celebs such as Jennifer Aniston, and is pretty non-invasive as far as beauty treatments go.
“Polynucleotides are more than just skin boosters,” Natalie explained. “They stimulate collagen and elastin production, which are crucial for maintaining youthful and firm skin. This makes them far more effective in the long run compared to traditional treatments that primarily offer hydration.”

Advocates of this raved about treatment highlight that it offers a ‘natural’ alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures like Botox and fillers.
Many doctors believe it is safer than other injectables, which can cause complications such as blocked blood vessels, uneven skin texture, and infections.
The procedure involves the use of purified and sterilised DNA molecules, known as polynucleotides, which are extracted from the sperm of salmon or trout.
The procedure itself was straightforward and surprisingly comfortable. It involved tiny injections being administered around my jawline, particularly in my cheek dimples and the area where jowls might begin.

The session lasted about 15 minutes, and the discomfort was minimal, akin to small pinches. Following my treatment, there was mild swelling, but it subsided within a day, allowing me to resume my regular activities almost immediately.
In the weeks following the treatments, I observed gradual, yet noticeable improvements. My jawline appeared more defined, and the skin felt firmer and more supple. The fine lines that had begun to form around my lower face seemed to diminish, giving me a refreshed and youthful appearance.
Natalie said: “Polynucleotides are stronger than skin booster treatment such as Profhilo, and can provide tightening effects to areas that may not normally be treated.
“It’s an amazing treatment that not that many people know about, and it offers results from just one session.”
Reflecting on my experience, I can confidently say that polynucleotide injections have surpassed my expectations. They offer a natural and gradual improvement, making them an excellent choice for anyone looking to subtly yet effectively combat the signs of ageing. I’ll definitely be making this a regular beauty treatment going forward. And I’m far from put off by the unusual ingredients.
