WHAT IS SUNEKOS?

Sunekos is now available at Patrices Art of Beauty in Tuam, GAlway. This new cosmetic injectable treatment, which like the dermal fillers we use contains hyaluronic acid. What makes Sunekos special is the patented formula of amino acids, which is added alongside the hyaluronic acid to create the injected product.

This Treatment is a great for those who want to maintain a more natural look, or those who do not want or need anti-wrinkle injections or fillers.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of our skin which draws in water to act as a natural moisturiser, keeping skin hydrated and plump, both of which are signs of youthful skin. HA is made by our bodies daily, but, as we age, we produce less natural HA and our skin suffers in appearance because of it. Amino acids are made by our bodies and are essential for the creation of healthy skin, acting as the precursors to the formation of new collagen and elastin.

HOW DOES SUNEKOS WORK?

Ageing presents in many ways on the face and isn’t just limited to lines and wrinkles or a loss of elasticity to the skin. As we age, skin will lose tone, becoming dry and uneven in texture, perhaps feeling rough. Skin can also suffer from changes in pigmentation or photo-damage which creates uneven patches of skin colour, or age spots, as well as dark under-eye circles. Exposure to sun is partly to blame but genetics, lifestyle choices and the natural pathway of getting older all play a part.

Sunekos is an injectable treatment that contains a patented formula of amino acids and hyaluronic acid, essential to skin laxity. It regenerates the skin from the inside-out by prompting the production of fibroblasts, which then instigates collagen and elastin production, for improved skin quality.

Sagging skin and severe wrinkles can be using Sunekos 200 and Sunekos 1200 in combination for a “cushion” technique.

Clinical trials have shown that hyaluronic acid products on their own can cause biorevitalisation in the skin, stimulating fibroblasts, but the addition of the amino acids is like adding extra fuel to a fire, their presence stimulates and directly targets the ECM fibroblasts which is important when it comes to rebuilding the dermal layers of the skin. Participants in trials reported improvements in wrinkles, skin plumpness and hydration, as well as a lifting effect.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM TREATMENT

You will start to notice the effects of treatment after a week or so as skin begins to rejuvenate. As this treatment stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production process, it may take a week or so before results become visible on the surface of the skin.

With any injectable treatment, there can be some slight bruising or swelling that accompanies it. This should not persist much longer than a few hours and can easily be concealed with makeup.

Depending on which package you go for treatment times vary ranging from 30-50 minutes.

Sunekos lasts up to 6 months, but research suggests that there is still improvement in the skin for approximately 8 months afterwards.
