At our skin clinic, we use the PhilArt brand of injectable polynucleotides. PhilArt polynucleotides is a biocompatible treatment which helps to reawaken your skin’s inner beauty and radiance by stimulating your skin to produce new collagen and elastin; two key factors in having firm skin, a smooth skin texture, and elasticity. This skin treatment also enhances your natural ability to retain moisture, resulting in plumper, more hydrated, youthful-looking skin, regardless of age.
Polynucleotides are tiny molecules derived from nucleic acids. Nucleic acids can be likened to an instruction manual for all living things. A well-known type of nucleic acid is DNA. Nucleic acids play a crucial role in our body’s cellular function. We use polynucleotides in aesthetic medicine to regenerate tissue and stimulate the production of key components found in your skin, including collagen.
PhilArt has proven safety and efficacy, supported by extensive clinical data, to increase collagen synthesis; promote hydration; promote free radical scavenging which is vital to protect our skin from damage and skin ageing; and increase the viability of and number of fibroblasts. Think of fibroblasts as the building crew that makes collagen and elastin. This activity has resulted in a noted 91% clinical improvement in the reduction of superficial fine lines, wrinkles, and skin tone.
In addition to the results PNs can achieve as a standalone treatment, they are able to actually enhance your other aesthetic skin treatments because they help to restore your optimal skin conditions. This means the PhilArt polynucleotides are ideal to use in collaboration with other treatments such as hyaluronic acid filler, chemical peels, microneedling, energy or light treatments such as Thermage, HIFU, or Byonik, and minimally invasive skin treatments such as the Thread Lift treatment, as well as cosmetic surgery to help optimise the outcomes and, ultimately, your treatment results.

Philart Treatment FAQs
PhilArt eye: can you treat around the eyes with PhilArt?
Yes. In fact, it’s one of our favourite places to treat with PhilArt polynucleotides because patients frequently request treatments around the eyes that will help to make them look less tired, and more refreshed, and address specific signs of ageing around the eyes such as crow’s feet, wrinkles, upper eyelid sagging, and thinning skin.
There is a PhilArt formulation specifically designed for the eye area which is ideal to use on delicate skin areas, such as the eyes. The PhilArt eye product concentration is ideal because it allows fibroblast activity within your skin to improve without causing excessive swelling.
It’s been shown that over 90% of the patients* had a clinical improvement in the reduction of superficial wrinkles as well as improvement in their skin’s appearance; these findings were supported by objective evaluations using a 3D skin analysis device.

Is PhilArt a skin booster?
No, PhilArt polynucleotides fall under the ‘biostimulator’ category. Skin boosters tend to offer some nourishment and hydration for the skin, but biostimulators go a step further. Biostimulators, such as PhilArt, stimulate processes within your skin, such as elastin and collagen production.
Polynucleotides vs filler
Both dermal fillers and polynucleotides are injectable treatments that have quite distinctive roles when it comes to aesthetic treatments. However, they can complement each other well.
Dermal fillers instantly rebuild volume that has been lost in areas such as the cheeks or the lips or to directly fill and, therefore, smooth individual wrinkles. Commonly, dermal fillers are made of an injectable, synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. This comes in a gel form and varies in thickness; the thickness of the product will be matched with the area needing to be treated and other factors. Fillers can offer immediate visible results and corrections.
PhilArt polynucleotides are classed as a biostimulator. This means that treatment will kickstart your skin’s natural rejuvenation process. It is not designed to replace volume or fill like a dermal filler. The natural rejuvenation process that takes place in your skin following treatment results in tissue repair, improved skin hydration, and new collagen and elastin being produced for a gradual, natural-looking improvement for ageing skin.
Is PhilArt safe?
The PhilArt injectable polynucleotides have clinically proven safety and efficacy. In a clinical experience on skin revitalisation with long-chain polynucleotide gel evaluating 143 patients aged between 32 and 75, of both sexes, it was shown to be very well tolerated and due to the highly bio-compatible nature of the product, there were no cases of severe side effects.
All beauty and medical-aesthetic treatments have the possibility of complications and side effects. When it comes to injectable treatments, we highly recommend seeking out the skill of an experienced medical practitioner to deliver your treatment to further reduce your risks.
Is PhilArt a one-off treatment?
No. A full treatment is classed as three sessions, approximately one month apart.
A complete treatment of PhilArt polynucleotides is classed as three treatment sessions, with approximately one month between each session. Our PhilArt prices include the required three sessions.
