Everything You Need to Know About the Viral Salmon Sperm Skin Treatment

By Poppy Broughton

In the world of aesthetics, we’re used to unconventional skin treatments, but even we initially raised an eyebrow at the thought of a ‘salmon sperm skin treatment’. After gaining virality across social media, polynucleotide injections made using salmon sperm have found themselves embroiled in myths and misconceptions – which is an absolute injustice for these innovative injectables that offer transformative results for your clients.

Beloved by Jennifer Aniston herself, polynucleotides boast a range of anti-ageing benefits to rejuvenate the complexion. So, we’re here to fish out the facts from the fiction and provide you with all the information you need to know about polynucleotides and their incredible benefits.

What Are Polynucleotides?

Polynucleotide injections are a fantastic aesthetic treatment which harnesses the bio-revitalising powers of fish, typically salmon or trout, DNA obtained from the nucleus of sperm cells. These revolutionary injectables work to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin for a lasting glow and flawless complexion.

Dr. Apostolos Vlachogiorgos, a reputable plastic surgeon, says, “I frequently offer VITARAN to patients looking to reduce dark circles in the under eye area due to its formula of 100% purified fragments of trout DNA. It is often a much more effective choice for revitalising the under eyes than dermal fillers as it works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, intensely hydrates the area, and regenerates for a youthful glow.”

Why is VITARAN Made From Trout DNA?

Polynucleotides derived from salmon DNA can not be quality controlled as the salmon is often farmed in polluted sea water. In order to combat this issue, Fox Pharma has developed VITARAN, a polynucleotide injectable which provides the same, if not better, level of results that polynucleotide injectables derived from salmon DNA do. This is because VITARAN is derived from trout DNA which ensures that it is 100% quality controlled. In particular, the trout is farmed in eco-friendly, filtrated and clean sea water which is not polluted.

Myths About Salmon or Trout Sperm Skin Treatments

There are a lot of things your clients would allow you to do in order to have Jennifer Aniston’s youthful glow and flawless complexion at 55. But, applying pure salmon or trout sperm to the faces of your clients would leave you  questioning your decisions. This idea is just one of the many misconceptions surrounding polynucleotides that we’re ready to debunk below.

Myth 1 – This Treatment Involves Applying Pure Salmon Sperm to the Face

We hate to burst your bubble, but there’s no pure salmon sperm in polynucleotides. These cutting-edge injectables are formulated with salmon or trout DNA, which mirrors human DNA and offers incredible bio-stimulating properties. Not a fish tank in sight.

Dr Tego Kirnon-Jackman, a medical and aesthetic doctor and owner of Skin by Dr. Tego, a doctor-led medical aesthetics clinic in London, says, “Polynucleotides take advantage of the latest aesthetic technologies to harness the regenerative power found in salmon or trout DNA and unlock a youthful radiance for users.”

Myth 2 – Polynucleotides Are Highly Expensive and Exclusive for Celebrities and the Elite

Just because polynucleotides are the injectable of choice for the rich and famous, it does not mean they cost the earth. The truth is that the cost per session of polynucleotide injections is not more expensive than that of a skin booster or dermal filler treatment. As with any aesthetic treatment, prices vary depending on the size of the treatment area, the location of your clinic, and the chosen product. However, a salmon or trout sperm skin treatment will typically cost a client between £250 and £500.

Myth 3 – Polynucleotides Smell Like Fish

It’s understandable that clients interested in a treatment of salmon or trout DNA would also expect an unpleasant fishy smell but this is absolutely not the case. By the time the sperm has been reduced to polynucleotides and treated, it’s not fishy at all. Neither you or your clients will notice any fishy smells.

Myth 4 – Polynucleotide Treatments Are Painful

A polynucleotide treatment involves a series of injections to the target area. These should be of minimal discomfort to your clients and pain levels should not differ dramatically from a skin booster treatment or similar injectables.

Dr Apostolos Vlachogiorgos says, “Whilst pain levels can vary from person to person, most clients report that polynucleotide injections elicit slight pinching or scratching sensations as per any injection.”

Myth 5 – They Are Just for Use on the Face

Polynucleotides are extremely versatile injectables that can be used to treat areas across the face and body. They work to revitalise and hydrate the skin and are commonly used to treat the under eyes, neck, face and hands.

Suitability of Polynucleotide Treatments

Polynucleotide treatments are suitable for nearly all skin types, making them an extremely versatile and reliable aesthetic injectable. However, as polynucleotides take advantage of the transformative capabilities of salmon or trout DNA, they are not a suitable treatment option for people with fish allergies and are not considered vegan or vegetarian. As with most medical cosmetic procedures, those under the age of 18, pregnant, or breastfeeding are unable to receive treatment.
