Polynucleotide (PN) is a well known skin rejuvenation treatment from South Korea that involves injecting polynucleotide (PN) into the skin dermis layer for skin repair and collagen building. Its popularity has led to the invention of PN such as Rejuran S (Scar), a product designed specifically for treating depressed scars on the skin.
PN for scars, such as Rejuran S, contains polymeric nucleotides extracted from salmon DNA. These highly purified long chain polynucleotides have high viscoelasticity and water-binding capacity which helps with skin repair and texture improvement.
Compared to the classic PN Rejuran, Rejuran S has higher viscosity which makes it an ideal product for treatment for scars. When injected at the scars, PN can help plump up depressed scars that are resistant to laser treatments. At the same time, the healing and repair function of PN help with collagen regeneration and new skin formation around the treated area, resulting in improvement of the appearance of scars.
Rejuran S Singapore
There are several types of depressed scars such as ice pick scars, rolling scars and boxcar scars. These scars usually result from severe acne.
Acne scars appear when the skin becomes inflammed with cystic acne. As the swelling subsides, the skin attempts to heal itself by manufacturing collagen to replace the damaged cells. Certain new collagen might create twisted bands in the skin, causing shape change and downward pull of the skin, resulting in a deep depressed scar.
Numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment. After adequate numbing, subcision is done before PN such as rejuran S is injected beneath the scar. The subcision cuts down aberrant collagen and scar tissue, allowing PN to act in the area and boosting normal collagen and skin healing.
To achieve a visible and long-lasting result, at least three treatments are normally required.
