After using Sunekos as a patient, Nafisa Mughal explains what the results were and why there is so much hype behind the skin booster.
Sunekos – is it as good as the hype?
Facial aesthetic treatments tend to go hand in hand with other skin treatments. Especially for areas that have traditionally been hard to treat like crepey skin and fine lines around the eyes.
What is Sunekos?
Sunekos is an injectable treatment containing a patented formula of amino acids and hyaluronic acid.
It regenerates the extra cellular matrix (ECM) by stimulating the fibroblasts in the skin to produce a complete mix of collagen and elastin.
How it works
Sunekos works in two main ways:
- It helps to thicken and firm up the skin by giving synthetic stimuli in the way of specific amino acids to the fibroblasts in the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which degrades as we age
- It provides hydration with hyaluronic acid.
The treatment is in a class of its own. Even though it’s an injectable, it’s neither a filler nor a toxin.
What it does
Sunekos is mainly for helping rejuvenate the skin as well as helping to reduce the appearance of dark circles around the eyes.
It helps to firm, tone, smooth and tighten the skin. And it helps soften fine lines, especially in hard to treat areas like directly under the eyes.
What are the benefits?
Most patients want treatment that has little or no downtime. This is great for that!
Although we inject Sunekos, we use a very fine needle so it is relatively pain free. The patient can resume normal activities following treatment and results are instant.
For this reason it is very popular as patients can see the difference straight away.
It’s also useful for not only the face but many body parts that show the first signs of ageing. Such as under the eye, which is a very delicate area. There are not many treatments that can help with the fine lines here.
The neck and decolletage. Again, the skin in these areas is quite delicate and often harder to treat to ‘match’ the face if they have had other facial rejuvenation treatments like toxin and fillers.
The hands are often tell tale signs of someone’s age. We often miss these off traditional treatments, despite being an area that people are bothered by.
We can also treat other body areas for crepey skin like the arms, inner thigh and knees.
My personal experience
As well as offering the treatment, the opportunity arose for me to be on the other side of the chair and receive treatment too.
I have to say, from a patient’s perspective, the results impressed me!
It wasn’t uncomfortable – it was quick and over within minutes. But what I was most pleasantly surprised with were the results as listed above! It was the results that drove me to feature this in this month’s column (I should take this opportunity to add that this is not a paid review).
