Frequently Asked Questions

An overview of the most asked questions around the web on Polynucleotides. 

  • What are Polynucleotides?
    The basic unit of a nucleotide is formed by a 5-carbon ring ribose (deoxyribose) and aldose, and a nitrogen base attached to the C1 position on aldose. (An aldose is monosaccharide – a simple sugar). The nucleotides are formed by ester compounds with inorganic phosphate to C5 on aldose (the 5th carbon in the ring) Nucleotides are the monomeric units of nucleic acids.Different nucleotides react with carbohydrates, phosphate and nitrogen to give the nucleic acids, which is the large molecules called biopolymers. ​ The most common nucleotides are DNA and RNA. From Wiki 'In molecular biology, a polynucleotide (from Ancient Greek πολυς (polys) 'many') is a biopolymer composed of nucleotide monomers that are covalently bonded in a chain.[1] DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid) are examples of polynucleotides with distinct biological functions. DNA consists of two chains of polynucleotides, with each chain in the form of a helix (like a spiral staircase).'
  • What are Ameela Polynucleotides?
    Ameela® is the new line of natural polynucleotide- based bio-stimulating gel created from Salmon DNA fragments. It contains a high viscosity for protecting and rejuvenating the skin. Ameela Polynucleotides are the essential building blocks of DNA and RNA. It is their molecular structure that holds the key to their efficacy for skin rejuvenation; their long, chain-like structures interact with dermal cells at all levels of the skin, which provides for longer lasting and more noticeable improvements. The unique molecular framework promotes collagen and elastin production for transformative, natural-looking results. As these proteins decline with age, the skin loses its suppleness, leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging; Ameela polynucleotides are effective at slowing this effect.

  • Why are Ameela Polynucleotides becoming a popular aesthetic treatment?
    Polynucleotides have become popular treatments due to their amazing rejuvenate properties. They have been shown to improve skin tone and elasticity whilst reducing fine lines, wrinkles and generally improving the quality of the skin. They provide a deeply moisturising effect and target free radicals to restore skin tone. This has led to many medical professions utilising polynucleotides in their clinical practices. Dr Ashwin Soni, explains to Harpers Bazaar the innovative technology behind Ameela Polynucleotides is ‘incredible, it really is a natural way to improve our skins and tissues on a cellular level’.

  • What can Ameela Polynucleotides be used for?
    One of the most common questions after 'what are polynucleotides' is what 'what can polynucleotides be used for?' Polynucleotides can be used to treat a whole host of different treatment indications. Their rejuvenate properties mean they have become popular as a 'tweakment' to boost or enhance certain areas of the face, neck and hair. Clinical studies have shown a 22.5% reduction in wrinkles after just three treatments with Ameela Rejuvenation. We're talking about a significant boost in skin tone and elasticity. Another popular treatment which has seen growth in polynucleotide requests is the under-eye area, or namely to treat dark circles.
  • What other concerns can be treated with Ameela Polynucleotides
    Polynucleotides can also used to treatment various concerns including; Dark circles Stretch marks Atrophic scarring Acne scarring Deep wrinkles and lines Skin sagging Alopecia
  • Are the treatment results instant and how long do they last?
    Clients of polynucleotide treatments will see an immediate result after one treatment. It’s important to note that all individuals require different levels of treatment but typically you will need 2 to 3 sessions, which would be 2 weeks apart with most individuals looking for a further top up after 6-9 months.
  • The best Polynucleotide treatment for under-eyes (dark circles) ?
    Ameela Eyes is a specifically formulated product designed to treat the periocular area. This includes; the treatment of eye bags, periocular wrinkles, and for enhancing the structural integrity of the skin, offering a more youthful and revitalised appearance.
