SUNEKOS® Intradermal treatment

Stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin, restoring elasticity and volume to the skin

Sunekos® is a treatment from an Italian company that has done a lot of research into the optimum way of stimulating your skin cells (fibroblasts) – using a suitable combination of hyaluronic acid and specific amino acids they believe they have found the answer.

  • Hyaluronic acid (HA): we know that HA can have a variety of effects, depending on its molecular size. Sunekos® uses its property of hydrating the skin to make it brighter and smoother, and also to stimulate the fibroblast cells to make more collagen and elastin, both of which are important for skin firmness and elasticity.
  • Amino acids: Amino acids are the building blocks for making the proteins collagen and elastin, and Sunekos uses 8 specific amino acids as raw materials for your cells to use.

Sunekos Sunekos London is a cosmetic injectable treatment, which like the dermal fillers we use contains hyaluronic acid. What makes Sunekos special is the patented formula of amino acids, which is added alongside the hyaluronic acid to create the injected product.

Sunekos has potent mix of amino acids which includes glycine, L-proline, L-leucine, L-lysine HCI, L-valine and L-alanine help to regenerate the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) – the building blocks which help to make the wall – by stimulating fibroblasts, or skin cells, to produce new collagen and elastin, repairing and rebuilding skin.

Sunekos process is referred to as a dermal biogenesis, literally skin regeneration. This Treatment is a great for those who want to maintain a more natural look, or those who do not want or need anti-wrinkle injections or fillers.

Sunekos comes in two preparations; Sunekos 200 (suitable for patients with less visible wrinkles) and Sunekos 1200 (perfect for more visible signs of ageing). They can also be used in combination to provide the best results.

Sunekos treatment is over  4 sessions each 14 days apart. You can see a marked improvement as the treatments progress, but the entire course of 4 must be completed for the area to get the intended results. This is followed by a repeated course of treatments every six months. If extra support is required with Sunekos 1200, then this will be injected a few days before treatment commences with Sunekos 200. 

You will start to notice the effects of treatment after a week or so as skin begins to rejuvenate. As this treatment stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production process, it may take a week or so before results become visible on the surface of the skin.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    about Sunekos

Sunekos is a very versatile product and can be used on the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolleté
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Inner Thigh
  • Knees
  • Under-eye

Ageing presents in many ways on the face and isn’t just limited to lines and wrinkles or a loss of elasticity to the skin. As we age, skin will lose tone, becoming dry and uneven in texture, perhaps feeling rough. Skin can also suffer from changes in pigmentation or photo-damage which creates uneven patches of skin colour, or age spots, as well as dark under-eye circles. Exposure to sun is partly to blame but genetics, lifestyle choices and the natural pathway of getting older all play a part.

Sunekos is an injectable treatment that contains a patented formula of amino acids and hyaluronic acid, essential to skin laxity. It regenerates the skin from the inside-out by prompting the production of fibroblasts, which then instigates collagen and elastin production, for improved skin quality.

Sunekos 200 contains a low molecular weight HA and Sunekos 1200 is a medium molecular weight HA. The former can be used alone to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands and is great for younger people. If additional ‘cushioning’ is required in the case of lax, sagging skin or deeper lines and wrinkles, then the Sunekos 1200 can be combined to give extra scaffold support for the dermal biogenesis. 

Sagging skin and severe wrinkles can be using Sunekos 200 and Sunekos 1200 in combination for a “cushion” technique.

Clinical trials have shown that hyaluronic acid products on their own  can cause biorevitalisation in the skin, stimulating fibroblasts, but  the addition of the amino acids is like adding extra fuel to a fire,  their presence stimulates and directly targets the ECM fibroblasts which  is important when it comes to rebuilding the dermal layers of the skin.  Participants in trials reported improvements in wrinkles, skin  plumpness and hydration, as well as a lifting effect.

After the initial 4 treatments (14 days apart) Rupesh recommends top up sessions every 6-9 months to maintain the results. We have found that with 6 monthly top up treatments the result just gets better and better as new collagen builds and builds.

The Sunekos treatment involves a small number of injections with minimal discomfort or downtime. As with any injectable there is a small risk of bruising and mild swelling. Because this is purely made of hyaluronic acid and amino acids there is nothing in the product that can cause a reaction.

Intradermal treatment with Sunekos® 200 corrects and protects the dermis from the signs of aging. Sunekos is the only natural product in professional dermo-aesthetics that stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin, restoring elasticity and volume to the skin.

Sagging Skin and Severe Wrinkles are mainly caused by Loss of Volume. HA over 1 Mio Dalton protect fibroblasts and structural elements of the dermis, as a Free Radical “Scavenger”. It has antioxidant and “volumising” properties, boosting the consequent action of Sunekos 200.

There are two Sunekos protocol guidelines:

Sunekos® 200

Sunekos® 200 + 1200

1. Protocol one – Sunekos® 200 standard protocol

4 separate treatment sessions at 14 days apart.

1-2 maintenance treatments at 6 months.

Suitable for the younger skin and can also have a lifting effect. This protocol is also suitable to treat around the eyes such as for dark circles and bags, fine lines or ‘crows’ feet.

Effective as a treatment for forehead lines, neck and décolletage areas.

2.  Protocol two – Sunekos® 1200 protocol

4 separate treatment sessions at 14 days apart.

Same as above but with the additional product of the 1200 at the first treatment session.

1-2 maintenance treatments at 6 months.

Suitable for the mature skin (generally over 45) and for slender and have sunken skin. It is effective for improving the appearance of severe wrinkles and sagging skin mainly caused by loss of volume.

For the cheeks and hands this is an ideal treatment protocol.
