I confirm that I have been informed that:
Plinest® is an injectable product designed to improve skin health and appearance. It contains polynucleotides, derived from trout sperm. Polynucleotides are clinically proven to stimulate the biological regeneration of the skin architecture, including collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, blood vessels, pigment, and supporting fat cells.
Treatment with Plinest®is indicated to improve skin texture, improve skin discoloration, skin tone, fine lines, hydration and radiance. Plinest®can also be used to improve the appearance of scars.
I understand the treatment involves multiple injections with a fine needle, of micro-doses into the surface of the skin. A blunt-tipped cannula may also be used subject to the preference of my practitioner and the area to be treated.
I understand three to four treatments 3 weeks apart are required to achieve optimum results and optimum longevity.
I understand to maintain results, a further treatment is recommended every six months. I have been advised that there are alternatives to this procedure available, including the acceptance of my present condition.
The treatment is expected to improve skin appearance and quality, it is often the case that some improvement can be seen within 4 weeks, with continued improvement over 6-12 weeks. Outcomes are dependent on biological responses and subject to lifestyle factors which will vary between individuals.
I understand that whilst I have been advised as to a probable result, this should not be interpreted as a guarantee.
