PhilArt Polynucleotides are an injectable biostimulator aesthetic treatment designed to stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin, and typically used to address signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.
PhilArt Polynucleotides promotes hydration, promotes free radical scavenging and increases viability and number of fibroblasts which in turn trigger the body’s natural collagen production. This helps to improve skin structure and overall elasticity with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Polynucleotides also enhance the skins’ natural ability to retain moisture, resulting in a more hydrated and youthful appearance.
PhilArt Eye Polynucleotides are specifically formulated for treating the delicate surrounding eye area to revive tired looking eyes, one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Unlike dermal fillers, polynucleotides take their effect by stimulating the skins natural production of collagen rather than by adding volume. This means they do not have the same risks associated with dermal filler around the eyes.

This accounts for its excellent safety profile and allows it to be used in delicate areas such as the surrounding eye area, which is associated with complications from dermal filler treatment.
PhilArt polynucleotides are of natural origin derived from freshwater fish intended for human consumption.
