What is Rejuran?
First and foremost, we need to understand what exactly is Rejuran. It is an injectable treatment that consists of polynucleotides (PN), or polydeoxyribonucleotide (PRDN), and these molecules form long chains that are known as DNA. Specifically, these DNA are obtained from salmon. Simply put, it is made of salmon DNA.

Rejuran VS Skin Booster
Skin boosters are filler treatments which involve micro-injections of hyaluronic acid into our skin to restore the moisture. It mainly helps to improve hydration in our skin. However, Rejuran acts on a cellular level. Instead of directly injecting our skin with important components such as hyaluronic acid, it stimulates the skin to produce these components itself, rejuvenating the skin from within. It focuses on skin repair and regeneration. To know more, check out our article on Rejuran Skin Booster.

Why is Rejuran so popular?
Deeper Activation of Skin Regeneration
PDRN extracted is stickier and stays around the injection areas. It allows active ingredients to interact with the dermis layer for a longer duration (up to 36 hours) so that skin cells can regenerate more effectively.
The PDRN extracted is unique to Rejuran Healer. Other skin treatments may not produce the same results.

Thereafter, clinicians will manually inject into the skin with a very small needle. We normally use manual injections as it more effective with minimal downtime and pain. This process will take about 20-40 minutes depending on the size of the targeted areas. You will go through LED light therapy to maximise results. This will take about 15 minutes.
