Youth Savamt is the anti-ageing skin food for optimal skin health and revitalized complexion.
Our DNA integrity is always under attack from environmental agents like skin cancer-causing UV rays. Signs of this impairment include sagging skin, pigmentation and even skin cancer. Scientific studies show that antioxidants and sunscreen are simply not enough to repair this damage.
DNA repairs enzymes that occur naturally in the skin to repair sun damage, but these shorten as we get older, hence why brown spots and wrinkles start to appear at a certain age. Our skin does have a toolbox of naturally occurring enzymes to fix damaged DNA. But as we age, the levels of these enzymes drop. Therefore maintaining the integrity of our skin’s DNA is vital to our overall skin health. Its benefits can be far-reaching; from improved complexion colour to improved skin healing to enhanced skin elasticity.
Skin DNA with Age
The DNA of young people is regulated to express the right genes at the right time. With the passing of years, the regulation of the DNA gradually gets disrupted, which is an important cause of aging. A study done by University of Leiden in over 3,000 people shows that this is not true for everyone: there are people whose DNA appears youthful despite their advanced years. By helping our DNA stay youthful, we are enabling our skin to age with slower grace than those with “older DNA”.
What is Salmon DNA?
Salmon DNA is not new, in fact it has been around for a few years. It is only in the recent years that this magical ingredient has gained immense popularity as more studies prove unequivocally how this ingredient can work to naturally heal and rejuvenate your skin from within.
Back 2010, a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science has already shown that 3% salmon DNA cream rubbed onto skin for 12 weeks improved skin-elasticity after the fourth week by increasing the skin’s internal hyaluronic acid production.
Further back in 2009, ageless pop superstar Madonna announce to the world that she was embarking on a ‘salmon retox’ program to “knock 12 years off of her appearance.” Even our material girl herself firmly swears by the anti-aging and health-giving benefits of consuming Salmon.
In recent years, scientific innovation has improved by leaps and bounds, culminating in the introduction of a Salmon DNA extract meant for microinjection into the superficial layers of the skin. This is not the normal injections such as fillers or even your botulinum toxin as the injections are so superficial, they stay only in the upper part of the skin layer called the dermis. The effects of this complexion beautification technique was first popularized in countries such as Korea and Japan where a fine, supple and smooth complexion was viewed as vital to a woman’s beauty. To ensure that the skin regenerating benefits of salmon DNA are delivered to where we need it most, direct microinjection techniques yield the fastest results.
What is Youth Savant?
Youth Savant is a no downtime, 30-minutes treatment at SW1 Clinic administered by trained doctors. By delivering DNA extracts (polynucleotides) into your skin via this simple, ingenious therapy, it helps to repair and rejuvenate your skin cells from within. Effects are seen about 3-5 days from your treatment. Most patients report an improvement in brightening, lifting, elasticity and overall appearance of their complexion.
What is Youth Savant treatment like?
Topical numbing cream is applied to the face. The treatment involves tiny superficial microinjections of PDRN (Polydeoxyribonucleotide) into the superficial dermis.
This is done with a very short (4mm) and fine micro-needle. This takes about 10 minutes.
When do we see results?
It is important to understand this is NOT a filler procedure, therefore our goal is not to see any immediate change as we are not putting fillers into the skin. What we are doing is infusing your skin with vital polynucleotides derived from Salmon DNA and PDRN (Polydeoxyribonucleotide) which is not only compatible to human skin but has been shown in studies to have beneficial anti-aging effects on the skin. These effects are cumulative and will improve with time. To fully saturate the skin and derive optimal benefits, 4 doses of Rejuran DNA Resurgence is needed to have optimal and long-lasting youth promoting effects on your skin. These are best done every 2 weeks apart.
Who is suitable for this treatment?
Anyone who wants to stay youthful can embark on a course of this treatment to ensure their skin stays as young and healthy for a longer time. Younger patients may find an improvement in their skin healing — marks from fresh acne, fine lines, tired dull skin may all improve as the skin grows stronger. Older patients may find an improvement in elasticity, suppleness and overall firmness of the skin.
What is the downtime of this treatment?
As this treatment involves microinjections, pin prick marks are visible but they are tiny. In rare cases, there may be small bruises which will resolve quickly with time. This can be minimized by avoiding alcohol, aspirin, vitamin E and blood thinners for 2-3 days prior to treatment. You may also obtain oral Arnica from SW1 Clinic to minimize your risk of bruising and to alleviate any existing bruises. You may also notice small bumps on the skin where the PDRN (Polydeoxyribonucleotide) are being deposited. This will last for only a few hours. You may wear makeup immediately and most patients can return to work and exercise after.
What are the side effects of this treatment?
Unlike a filler treatment, there are no risks of any changes to your face shape or volume, or having any lumps after the treatment. Anyone who is allergic to salmon or any fish products should not undergo this treatment. As this is a natural treatment, it is generally very safe as the extracts are biocompatible with human skin. Most patients have little to no adverse issues with this.
What are the areas that can be treated?
This is an excellent anti-aging treatment for your face, neck, decolletage. Any areas of skin that you would like to protect from the effects of age can benefit from Rejuran DNA Resurgence.
Can this treatment be combined with other treatments?
As this treatment boosts your skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation capacity, you will find that the effects of your other aesthetic treatments are prolonged. Rejuran DNA Resurgence can be safely combined with any lasers and filler treatment.
What is the difference between Rejuran DNA Resurgence and Revitalift Face?
Revitalift Face uses hyaluronic acid which is a fine particle filler to improve the skin’s water-holding capacity. By doing so, you will find that the fine lines are immediately improved and the complexion of the skin is enhanced due to a rise in both collagen and moisture in the skin. Rejuvan Resurgence on the other hand is NOT a filler, its main function is to boost the skin’s natural healing capacity, and improve skin health. A healthy skin will look younger, act younger and age in the slowest possible way.
