If you have been diligently doing your research on anti-aging treatments, you would probably come across the term ‘Rejuran Healer’. It is hard to miss since it is all the rage now. For those who are curious about the treatment or want to learn more about it, this article will be helpful in filling you in on the essential facts about Rejuran Healer.
What is Rejuran Healer?
Rejuran Healer originated from Korea. It is a skin healing treatment that has become hugely popular over the last few months. It was made popular in many Asian countries where smooth, firm complexion is the feminine beauty ideal.
It gained popularity right after SkinBoosters treatment last year. The anti-aging trend seems to be revolving around skin rejuvenating micro-injections.
Rejuran Healer is commonly referred to as PDRN treatment, Miracle Healer Injection, or 婴儿针. It is a dermal filler treatment made of polynucleotides. A polynucleotide molecule is a biopolymer made up of nucleotides monomers bonded together. Nucleotides are the basic units which make up DNA.
Rejuran Healer: DNA harvested from salmon
Simply speaking, the content of Rejuran Healer is made up of DNA harvested from salmon. In layman’s terms, Rejuran Healer is a deep healing treatment at the DNA level. The contents of Rejuran Healer are derived from salmon. Specifically, only salmon DNA is used in Rejuran Healer because the polynucleotides are the safest and biologically most similar to human DNA.
Studies have shown that salmon DNA is an effective key ingredient for addressing aging skin and reversing early signs of aging.
A study published in 2010 investigated the effects of using salmon DNA to treat skin laxity. It was found that salmon DNA has a remarkable effect in improving skin elasticity and skin texture. Some hospitals have used PDRN to accelerate the healing process and treat stubborn wound disorders associated with diabetes.
It was found to be safe and compatible with the human body. There are no known adverse side effects relating to using Rejuran Healer for cosmetic applications. Improvements were then made to PDRN harvested from salmon for the purpose of cosmetic application and anti-aging.
By administering Rejuran Healer in the superficial layers of the skin, it aims to achieve the following benefits:
Improve hydration to dry skin
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Promote skin repair with improved skin barrier function
Minimize pores and improve skin texture and skin tone
Encourage thickening of the skin
Regulate oil production for healthy-looking skin
Is Rejuran Healer safe for suitable for me?
Rejuran Healer is generally safe for cosmetic application. Although the initial idea of injecting a fish derivative may put you off at first, the results of people who have received the treatments have been encouraging. Furthermore, after making modification to the PDRN extract, there is absolutely no smell of fish.
If you are worried that the content derived from a fish base may cause your body to reject it, you can be assured that Rejuran Healer has been greatly modified to be free of any proteins that may cause your body’s immune system to attack.
How is the treatment carried out?
Typically, the doctor will do a consultation with you to understand your concerns and your needs.
When the doctor has assessed your suitability, the nurse will prepare you by applying a thin layer of numbing cream on the skin.
Rejuran Healer will then be administered into the superficial layer of the skin using a series of microinjections.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Some red bumps and swelling can be expected after the treatment but it will subside after a few hours.
Results can be seen about 3 weeks after the initial treatment. Results are best seen if this treatment is done 3 to 4 times over a period of 3 months.
Can Rejuran Healer be done with other aesthetic treatments?
However, it is important to inform your doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions so that your doctor is able to advise if you are suitable to undergo Rejuran Healer treatment.
